Fashion blogger Rozalia Russian credits her Personal Trainer for helping her get back in shape after the birth of her first child, Willow. She lost 28 kilograms with a mix of cardio and weight training. Rozalia now has a second baby on the way, so we asked the stylish Mum to showcase our new maternity activewear…
What’s your go-to workout? How has this changed during your pregnancies?
When I exercise I like to feel like I have sweated it out! So when I train with my personal trainer Hayley, we do a lot of cardio and weight training. She was the one who got me back into shape after Willow and helped me lose 28kg. I didn’t train with her the first time I was pregnant but I have just had the all clear from my obstetrician to start exercise again so looking forward to seeing Hayley in the next week and see what pregnancy program she has come up with.
What do you like to wear when you workout? Does it help to motivate you?
I tend to stick to all dark colours, black tights, dark loose tops and a dark sports bra. When I go to the gym in the morning I’m always in a rush getting Willow her breakfast and in the car, so I only have like 5 minutes to throw something on.
If everything is the same colour I don’t have to worry and waste time in the morning thinking about it matching!
What’s your favourite healthy summer snack?
I absolutely love fruit so any type of fruit! Watermelon, raspberries, blueberries, apples, our fridge is always stocked. In summer time my absolute favourites are cherries and mangos!
What do you do to relax?
Make a nice cup of tea, light a candle and watch a movie.
What are some of your favourite things to do as a family?
We are European so we love to eat! We always head out on the weekend and have a long yummy lunch somewhere with lots and lots of food until we feel like we are going to pop!
What’s the next big thing for you?
Well having our second baby is a pretty big thing so I guess the new baby!
I am constantly working on evolving my online store and website so have some new projects launching soon.
