The Captain of Her Own Life
Posted on 01 June 2016
After years of not being happy with her body, Kristine decided to take matters into her own hands. She made fitness a priority after reading a book that inspired her to change her life for the better. Now she works out 6-7 times a week, has amazing self-confidence and a rockin’ body! She’s a total inspiration!
What is your name and age?
Kristine Lisovska – 27
What inspired you to get fit?
All my life i wasn`t happy with my body. Four years ago i read Robin`s Sharma book "Monk who sold his Ferrari" and it inspired me a lot! I`ve started eating healthier and training (just cardio) to lose weight. I lost a few kilo`s and then began building muscle. Fitness is my life now, the journey will never end.
What keeps you motivated to live the healthy life?
It`s the lifestyle i want to live, i love it! My goal is to become a professional in the fitness industry. It not only gives you a strong & beautiful body, it gives you respect from others and most importantly self confidence & respect to yourself. It takes a lots of discipline, mental strength, time and patience to fight with temptation every day. I want to inspire people. It`s so important to have a people who live the same life like you, grow together, who could take you up not down. My main motivator is my coach Hayley Brylewski- thank you so much!
How do you balance life, work, training and family?
I work 5 days a week and workout 6-7 times a week. I train after work and then spend time with my beloved. He support what i do and absolutely for it. At weekend i workout early and meet my friends afterwards, then prepare my meals for the next week. I also enjoy outdoor activities with my friends, like cycling.
What is your favorite body part to exercise?
Glutes, it`s definitely glutes! Fit glutes are the most sexy body part. It gives you beautiful curves! It`s also my cheat meal day! It`s a hard session, 2.5 hours! But it`s worth it!
If you had to pick three key exercises - what would they be and why?
1. Any type of squats – hard and sweaty work but it`s gives you really good results ( building muscle, burning fat, and improving strength ).
2. Single leg press – huge concentration on each side separately , usually i smash my glutes on leg press.
3. Abs workout with an abs roller – it makes your stomach muscles rock hard.
What do you think is the biggest misconception about women in fitness?
Lifting weights makes women look like a men. Or many times i heart from friends they don`t want get too big and look like a men so better stay on treadmill or don`t go to the gym at all!
