Meet one of our newest Bulk Ambassadors Tammie! She’s a highly motivated WBFF Pro Fitness model and a passionate women’s bodybuilding coach.
Since competing in her first figure show in 2011, Tammie has achieved great results in multiple shows at all levels of competition. She even competed in a team at the 2016 CrossFit games. In the past few years, she has changed divisions and is working hard towards competing at the 2021 WBFF Pro Fitness show in October.
Tammie’s love for everything health and fitness also show in her coaching. Over the last decade, she has coached countless women worldwide, helping them to move better, feel stronger, unlock their inner potential, and create confidence they didn’t know they had.
Recently Tammie became a fully qualified Sports Nutritionist adding to her already extensive repertoire of coaching skills and services.
I love helping people move better, live better, and find potential and confidence within themselves they didn't know they had. I truly believe I have the best job in the world.
I have been extremely lucky to have had Olympic level coaches (from gymnastics to weightlifting) over the last 10 years who all play an enormous part in influencing me with my skills (both athletic and coaching skills).
In 2019 I upped my game and became an accredited Sports Dietician (Sports Nutrition Australia).
As well as coaching women worldwide, I'm an ex-figure competitor and current fitness model.
I began as a figure competitor in 2011 and scored multiple Australian titles, a World Title (Las Vegas) and my top achievement, Miss Figure Universe Pro (2014 Miami Florida).
During those initial years of bodybuilding, I also turned to competitive powerlifting to really stack on some muscle.
After my success in Miami, I decided I'd have enough and moved into CrossFit where I fell in DEEP, so deep I ended up competing in the 2016 CrossFit Games as a team. I loved it, every part of this style of training, the community, the challenge.
2019 rolled around with a bunch of injuries and glandular fever, forcing me to leave CrossFit and play it safe. I was genuinely devastated.
This is where I turned back to bodybuilding! Can't get much safer than that!
This brings us to now with my most recent title of Miss Fitness Diva Pro (2019).
From here I’m continuing to influence people to live a better life, I know I have found true success.
These are some of the supplements I use and recommend.
Why I love it: Quick Protein Oats are so convenient for holidays! They come in sachets so they're easy to pack and you know the serving size. I always train on holidays, so these are perfect for me!
How I use it: With water and a smidge of milk.
Why I love it: It’s an essential part of my nutrition. Vanilla blends with EVERYTHING! Mango, banana, cacao, berries, peanut butter... whatever you wanna blend, Vanilla works.
How I use it: If I'm lazy, scoop into a glass of water and mix with a fork.
Why I love it: I coach so many vegan and vegetarian clients who lack EAAs in their current supps and diet. Adding this to their plan ensures they are supplying their body with complete proteins to grow!
How I use it: Chuck it in a smoothie.
Why I love it: Essential to enhance performance and growth.
How I use it: Chuck it in a smoothie.
Why I love it: Some days I get lazy with food and getting enough fruit and veg is difficult. This is my little healthy lifesaver that ensures I’m getting all the lovely vitamins, minerals and nutrients I need!
How I use it: Glass of water.
My training changes all the time.
I have macros that I continually adjust to suit my progress.
This is a hot tip for anyone lazy like me – I write myself a meal plan to suit these macros, stick it on the fridge and follow it every day.
I have a refeed each weekend of whatever. I factor the refeed calories into my weekly caloric intake, so I know I’m not going over my prescribed amounts.
With shows coming up fast and my desire to do things properly, every day counts so I make sure I’m doing things right.
Diet you follow... General health
What is my average daily calorie intake? 2500kcals
Foods I avoid... Not the biggest fan of dairy – cow’s milk was made for baby cows.
Foods I crave... Very rarely.
My ultimate cheat meal is... Homemade burger and chips with a friend. I love cooking for people and homemade just tastes so damn good!
Have you had any exceptional results (in competitions or otherwise) in the last few years? Let us know what they are!
I’m proud to have been a coach to dozens of amazing athletes for 10 years now.
I've had multiple State, National and World titles with my girls.
