Q&A with Anna

1. When did you first start playing hockey? I started when I was four years old because my whole family played. My Dad coached me growing up and I knew after watching the Sydney Olympics when I was nine that I wanted to play for Australia.

2. What’s your current training schedule like? I try to find time to exercise once a day but also believe in listening to how my body is feeling. I do a lot of HIIT training as I find my body reacts best to short sharp bursts. I also like that I can get the maximum amount out of my body in a short period of time. I do weights twice a week and mix up going for longer runs with sprint sessions depending on my training goals.

  • In 2018 I ran 2 half marathons and have set myself a goal of running a full marathon.
  • I want to win another National and Premier League title with hockey
  • I want to get my body to the best condition it can be in

4. What is your ultimate cheat meal? I am a sucker for baked goods - pass me the cupcakes!

5. Why do you enjoy being a Bulk Nutrients Ambassador? I love using Bulk Nutrients' products and have found that my body has improved so much since I have started using them. Everyone who works on the team is so passionate about what they do and I love the culture and drive of all the athletes and staff who really believe in what they are doing - helping people achieve their fitness goals. I am so excited to share my diet journey with Bulk Nutrients as I try become the best version of myself.
