5 tip for achieving a flat stomach with Sophie Tilley

April 13, 2019

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?

 

1. Regular Training & Clean Eating   

"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."

2. Know Your Goals

Having clear goals holds you accountable for achieving them

Sophie's Goals are:

  • Mixing both weights and cardio exercises into her workouts 
  • Knowing her daily steps and making a conscious effort to reach them
  • Eating in calorie deficit (seek an experts opinion help on this if you are unsure)
  • Staying hydrated
  • Limiting her sugar and alcohol intake 

3. Get To Know Your Body

"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."

4. Mixing It Up

"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."

5. Staying Focused

"Unfortunately results don’t come over night but believe me when you start seeing results all that hard work is totally worth it."

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!).

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.
