1. What are your 3 favourite Vie Active pieces and why?
The Libby Hoodie - I'm totally renowned for my love of hoodies and not only is this one is named after me, it was also part of the first ever Vie Active range, so it's practically vintage! hehe...
The Tanya Dance Short in Black Leopard- I LOVE short shorts... but not tooooo short. These are the perfect fit and black leopard is my fave Vie Active signature print, so it's a win-win.
The Rockell Compression Tights in Lava - My most recent purchase! They are SO comfy & silky, with a subtle print that goes with everything. Perfect for a run, or a social brunch!
Just 3!? Coz if I can sneak a 'bonus' item in, I love the Lori Sports Bras in EVERY colour. The only sports bras that give me a little cleavage AND are perfect for surfing too!
2. What are your gym bag essentials?
I have really sensitive skin, so I have to be careful with caring for it immediately post-workout. For that reason, my top 3 gym bag must-haves are all basic face care products that cleanse and calm the skin after a session.
1. Face cleansing wipes. I love Simple and Wotnot brands, as they're gentle on my skin.
2. Aspect Dr Redless Serum - it's calming and anti-inflammatory, so it gets me from bright red to meeting-ready in no time.
3. A good quality mineral makeup. I like the compact kind, no messy loose powders! Current faves are Dermaquest and Jane Iredale.

3. What type of workout is essential to your weekly routine? 
There are 5 kinds I try to get in each week..
1.Exploratory/play session. This is where I link up with another trainer at Agoga and we challenge ourselves to create a workout made entirely of brand new moves, or combinations. This keeps me motivated and ensures I'm always doing my research and bringing cutting-edge new workouts to my clients.
2. Circuit session involving agility and plyometric exercises, as well as sprints. This is where the good stuff happens!
3. Cardio interval sesh. I love cardio, but I hate long runs, so I mix shorter run intervals with high repetition bodyweight moves to boost cardio, while still enjoying myself!
4. Resistance workout. Here's where I lift a little heavier and get my functional core training done.
5. Recovery movement. This could be a yoga class, myofascial release, a long jog/walk followed by a stretch, a dance class, or a good massage!
