MEET OUR ASN AMBASSADOR- ALYSSA CAMERON!
ABOUT ME- "BIO"
I began dancing at the age of 4; Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern & Contemporary, which I followed through with till I was 12. I had sparked an interest in competitive figure skating when I was 9, completing the entire curriculum and obtaining my Teachers certificate up to Advanced. I'm always trying new sports and keeping active. I've done sports such as athletics, netball, basketball, soccer, tennis, volleyball and training in kickboxing. Growing up with social media as an almost third parent, bombarded by models and the goal of being "skinny", I found myself quite underweight and scared of resistance training in the thought of getting "big and bulky". After some convincing from my brother, an ASN sponsored athlete then and now, I found my passion for fitness and overall, a healthy lifestyle. I received a lot of emails from bikini brands through Instagram and joined an agency for paid promotional posts from 16, proud to advocate an ideal and healthy weight for others who were in the same position as myself at a younger age.
CURRENT FITNESS/HEALTH GOALS
I'm quite goal orientated, so I tend to mix it up and continuously set goals once reached, however I've got a permanent goal to keep to a healthy and consistent diet As a long distance runner- my goals tend to be length based, e.g 20km. I'm currently studying the HSC(year 12) so training tends to be minimised around exam time; afterwards it builds up to get back to an optimum fitness level. To monitor the progress the Inbody Scanner is an awesome tracker.
NUTRITION (EXAMPLE OF MY CURRENT DIET)
I'm coeliac(gluten free) and slightly lactose intolerant so it wipes out a lot of foods like breads/cakes/biscuits/chips/pies/icecream- with or without allergies they'd be a minimal on my diet. My current diet consists of lots of fish, avocados, eggs, bananas, nuts, cleansing juices and a whole heap of veggies !
TRAINING (CURRENT TRAINING)
My workouts are rather versatile, split into 6 days according to different muscle groups; legs, back, shoulders, arms and chest and a rest day that tends to be thursday(just to be different). During summer I tend to head towards a leaner figure through long distance running as it's a passion of mine as it gets warmer, increasing length by 1 km depending on running time & heart rate monitoring. During exam time, I'm a big fan of "Pump" classes at the gym as it's a motivation in itself being surrounded by others with the same interests, whilst training all muscle groups with a high number of reps in a short amount of time. I add an ab workout into each training session, specified by my p.t. When I'm not in the gym or on the track- I find myself incorporating fitness activities with friends and family such as day hikes, beach walks, stand up paddle boarding, white water rafting and beach bike riding !
CURRENT SUPPLEMENT STACK (INCLUDING"WHEN" YOU TAKE THEM)
My workout routines vary throughout the week but a typical is Pyro & L-Carnitine in the morning before running, Evolve Lipo Whey & KeTrim mixed in a smoothie. Throughout the day and arvo- Greentea TX1OO. Swap between Oxyshred, pyro, and MuscleWerks D-fine8. Nubreed helix bcaa, subcut and Evolve Anabolic injection for post workout.
