Meet Sophie Tilley, she's an almond milk mocha lover who enjoys beach walks and keeping fit and active. She's originally from the UK but has been in Australia for 5 years and feels so lucky to call this beautiful country home. Sophie works in recruitment with a tasty little cake business called Tilley's Treats as her side hustle.
Over the last year Sophie has really become involved with her fitness. At the the start of the year she set herself a goal to step on stage for the first time and compete in ANB Bikini Modelling competition . Last weekend she achieved her goal and placed an incredible 2nd in both bikini and swimsuit international. We're so proud of her!
As someone who is still fairly new to the fitness industry, Sophie has showed us how with determination and clear goals, you can achieve anything! In awe of her amazing figure, we thought it was only fitting asking her how she achieved it.
So let's get to the question we've all been waiting for... HOW DID YOU GET SUCH A LEAN STOMACH?
"I currently train 5-6 days a week and eat a very healthy, clean diet with little to no processed food. My amazing coach Kyl Raggio tailors my work out for me each week and I simply follow his instructions."
Having clear goals holds you accountable for achieving them
"I tend to stay away from foods that I know aggravate my gut , which for me is dairy. I also currently take Nutra-Life Gut Health which helps boost levels of friendly bacteria in my digestive system."
"Doing 3000 crunches everyday isn’t going to help you achieve a flat stomach you need to a variety of exercises to help achieve this, for example Russian twists, planks, side planks and full body exercises like squat presses and deadlifts. You need to work the whole of your body for the best results, unfortunately we cannot spot reduce just our stomachs."
"Unfortunately results don’t come over night but believe me when you start seeing results all that hard work is totally worth it."
"As soon as I saw the Monte Carlo String I fell in love immediately. Not only does it fit like a dream the Rust colour is to die for! Highly recommend you getting your hands on this piece before they sell."

Ladies, the weather is heating up which means bikini season is just around the corner! There’s already temptations of replacing gym sessions with beach walks. However, giving up resistance training could cause more damage than you think! Why resistance train?
Resistance training is crucial to maintaining a proper fitness routine. Your muscles will waste away without it. Once you’ve hit your twenties, muscle loss increases rapidly unless you work to maintain or build it. if you don’t use it, you lose it.
Only a few weeks off resistance training can cause muscle loss (if you’ve ever broken a bone you would already know this!).
Have you found yourself constantly procrastinating, pressing snooze or feel yourself just being lazy?
Then stop reading, I can’t help you.
Jokes 😂 but seriously I can put in my two cents worth now that can help you but at the end of this post it’s up to you to activate the advice/suggestions I’ve made.
If you’re feeling unmotivated, lazy or always finding excuses... the truth is you just don’t care enough. 🤷♀️
When you know exactly what you want and it is honestly IMPORTANT to you... the motivation comes easy. You won’t make excuses and you’ll find ways to make it happen.

All swimwear is assembled from the finest imported material's, and whilst suits can be worn in pools and oceans, they are not designed for extensive physical activity.
925 Sterling Silver is a relatively soft metal. In order to keep jewellery looking shiny and new in the years to come, special care is required.
Avoid direct contact with water and chemical products e.g. soap and perfume. The stones may also get effected by being in damp conditions.
Do not wear your jewellery when in the ocean, swimming pool, spa, sauna/steam room or while bathing or showering.
Rings can be easily exposed to collisions with other surfaces which creates dents and small wounds. Over time, these will slide into each other and the surface and the underside of the ring to become "softer" and the cuts become less visible. Scratches and small bulks are not considered a defect, but just a sign of normal wear and tear for silver.
All stones are fragile and might break or chip if they collide with a hard surface.
Our items are treated with an anti-tarnish treatment. However, sterling silver may still eventually tarnish (oxidize) over time. To avoid this as much as possible, gently wipe your jewellery clean with the polish cloth that is provided after each wear to remove any dirt and oils.
To avoid scratches please store each item individually in provided KURTEF jewellery pouches. This also helps avoiding any exposure from direct sunlight which might cause the jewellery and stone to fade.
Please ensure you choose the correct design and size as products purchased from KURTEF are non refundable.
However, if for any reason you are not satisfied or you have an issue with your purchase please send us an email within 24 hours of receiving the product to outline the situation, and we will try our best to resolve it!
