I LOVE meeting and working with AMAZING health experts. Amanda Clout is no exception. She does some writing for me, and I have had the pleasure of working with her at 12WBT HQ. She’s an amazing trainer, an acomplished ultra runner, an HR expert, and all round great chick! Enjoy 60 seconds with Amanda!
What’s your health angle?
Trainer that loves to provide education and give clients the confidence that they can do it! I’m realistic, life happens! But you need to drop the excuses. Develop habit and commitment to what you want to achieve, the rest will follow.
When it comes to weight loss, in your opinion, what percentage is diet vs exercise?
Diet 65% vs exercise 35% (with the correct training)
Who would you ‘eat with’, ‘pray for’, and ‘love’ out of: Paleo Pete, Sarah Wilson, Michelle Bridges
‘love’ Michelle Bridges – she is the real deal
‘pray for’ Sarah Wilson – she sounds complicated.
‘eat with’ Paleo Pete – why not try something new? I’m always up for an omelette! Errr I mean a bone broth soup?!
Favourite healthy meal?
Breakfast – Chobhani yogurt, banana, blueberries, tsp. of honey and tbsp. of muesli YUMMO!
Favourite foodie splurge?
OMG Cheese and wine and cheese and some more cheese
Favourite exercise or workout you love to hate?
Favourite exercise: Straight leg deadlift – feels like an amazing stretch at the time but gives me serious DOMS 36hrs later! Or SQUATs, heavy squats – they are awesome!
Love to hate workout:
upper body – everything really. I like toned arms and shoulders but give me legs any day!
What’s one daily habit you wish all your clients mastered?
Routine and being prepared! That’s two I know but they are hand in hand Sigh
What’s a healthy app you love?
Barry! Our dog Barry. Barry barks when you come through the gate – he wants a walk – that’s the best app. Other MyFitnessPal tends to keep my eating in check.
What’s something not many people know about you?
I was a part of the Australian Youth Choir who sang at Disneyland in the US (a long time ago)
Quote you live by?
So so so many…but I love “if it’s important you’ll find a way, if it’s not you will find an excuse” I remind myself of this when I start to say “I’m too busy”.
What’s your business name, location and social media handles?
