Fit Feature - Lauren Hannaford
Posted on 11 September 2014
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of catching up with the gorgeous Lauren Hannford. Lauren is a tonne of fun and always up for a challenge which is what makes her instagram so inspiring (seriously! look at some of the moves she can do!) and what made her so much fun to shoot with. She definitely embodies an ' Urban Warrior' which is the focus of our Spring 2014 collection. I can't wait to catch up again!
Tell us a bit your yourself and your fitness journey, why fitness?
I have always been a fit and active person throughout my life. It started from the age of 5 when I became an elite gymnast which continued for the next 20 years. Throughout that time i've also competed in swimming, athletics and diving. Other than gymnastics I took a real liking to athletics.... Triple jump in particular. I had a battle for a while about maybe taking myself out of gymnastics and focusing my time on becoming an Olympic triple jumper but in the end I chose to continue on with my gymnastics and haven't looked back.
After retiring I became a gymnastics coach for many years and also wanted to focus on fitness training specifically so that I could combine the two which got me into becoming a Personal Trainer. I have since spent the last 4 years touring the world as a Wiggly gymnast/dancer/character for The Wiggles. Being away so much I then had to be able to find time and locations for my training. This fit me perfectly because with my kind of training/coaching can be done anywhere. Whether it be the carpark of the Hammersmith Apollo Theatre in London on under the stage of the Best Buy Theatre on Broadway NY by doing interval body weight exercises incorporating HIIT and core gymnastics exercises and skills I managed to be able to train anywhere and stay fit throughout the whole time being on the road.I am based back in Sydney at the moment and ready to train anywhere in this beautiful city.
