She’s fit, she’s tough and she’s a climber like no other we’ve seen before - it's Anna Davey!
You may have seen Anna’s face before... and that’s because she was a competitor on Season 1 and 2 of Australian Ninja Warrior.
Anna trains and competes in a unique sport that requires a great deal of skill and hard work, sport climbing!
A competitive climber, Anna holds two titles climbing in Western Australia - Lead and Boulder. These disciplines of climbing require speed and strength as well as tactics.
I'm a professional climber, former ninja warrior semi-finalist (season 2), a climbing coach and a personal trainer.
I'm extremely passionate about health and fitness and built my own business to help people all over the world get in shape and smash their goals for the lowest possible cost via online coaching.
Being an athlete myself, my nutrition must be spot on and given the demand of my training, supplements are a must.
I'm SIA (formerly ASADA) tested so the HASTA Certified range from Bulk Nutrients is my go-to.
The Bulk Nutrients products I’ve recommended I use almost daily; they have a real emphasis on recovery and are suitable for all athletes.
Why I love it: I love BCAA Recovery; it's light, tasty and helps me to recover quickly after a big climbing session. The Lemonade flavour is also HASTA approved so I don’t have to worry about taking it when I’m competing.
How I use it: I mix 3 scoops in 400ml of water, during or after climbing.
Why I love it: I’ve found supplementing L Glutamine with my BCAAs has helped me recover super-fast from training and is also good for supporting my immune system and overall gut health.
How I use it: I mix 1.5 scoops in 400ml of water, mixed in with my BCAAs for taste.
Why I love it: ALCAR has two great benefits. Firstly, it helps with burning body fat, keeping me lean. The second is it helps improve cognitive function allowing me to stay alert while climbing.
How I use it: I take one capsule twice a day before meals.
Why I love it: I usually take it just before I train because it gives me a good rush of energy and really helps with my endurance when I’m climbing.
How I use it: I mix 1-2 scoops in 500ml of water and take it 30 minutes before training.
The best way to train for rock climbing is to just climb! I train 5 days a week for 2-3 hours and in addition, on three of those days, I also train my fingers on a hang board for 30 minutes, in the morning before work.
What is my average daily calorie intake? 1,700-2,500 calories
Foods I crave... Lollies and chocolate
My ultimate cheat meal is.. Hot chips because they are delicious!
