Sam, you look amazing! How do you like to stay healthy?
"Thank you so much! It took me a while to commit to working out, but once I started to feel the great benefits, I really loved it. I work out three times a week and try to eat as clean as possible."
Do you have any workouts you prefer over others?
"I do enjoy circuit training. Even though it's hard, it's fun to keep it moving."
How do you make time to work out with such a busy schedule?
"You have to commit time to looking after your health – your physical and mental health are improved by working out. I usually schedule it in the morning before work, or at night if my day is full. I train between sound checks during my tour!"
How do you feel about your body?
"As women, we put so much pressure on ourselves to be skinny, but it's so much more beautiful to be strong and fit. Working out for me is more to be healthy than anything else."
Describe your day on a plate
"Breakfast is either a smoothie or scrambled eggs and avocado. Lunch is a chicken salad or tuna and rice, and dinner will either be sushi, chicken or steak with veggies."
Are there any foods you try and avoid?
"I do usually avoid carbs after 6pm, and I've started to replace sugar with natural sugars if I do choose to have it. Cutting it out is really hard because I love sugar!"
When do you feel especially confident in your own skin?
"I feel the most confident when I'm happy and living a healthy lifestyle."
