What activities do you participate in to stay active? 

Weight training, Tabata workouts, running, road biking, horseback riding, archery and various obstacle course races such as the Spartan races.

How does being active make you feel and why is it important to you? 

Being active brings balance to my life. These moments allow me to switch off and refocus on myself. It is one of the best ways to manage stress and decompress. It’s one of the only times when I feel in control of my abilities and when my performance depends solely on my will to push even further.

How do you implement being active into your busy schedule?

I plan my training sessions in advance, so I can manage my schedule around my sports training.

What barriers have you faced or are you currently facing when it comes to being active? 

Following my university studies in another region, it was difficult to maintain an active lifestyle. My lifestyle was poor, with exams, internships and numerous university projects. So, I had to find a sport I liked and active people to motivate me to get moving.

What motivates you to continue to be active? 

I train with an incredible group of people. Being around them and seeing their success and progress is a great source of motivation for me. I want to be the best version of myself and live an active life. I’m lucky enough to be healthy and I intend to enjoy life for as long as possible.

Do you have a role model and/or would you consider yourself to be a role model to others?

Since I met my coach Sophie Arbour, my motivation and state of mind have changed enormously. Despite all the roadblocks along the way, she has always managed to get stronger each time and find the time to train. She is a great source of inspiration for me. All the people at my training sessions have their own experiences and it’s very inspiring to see them push themselves and find their own source of motivation.
