Amanda Steer discovered the world of figure shaping in 2009, in 2012 Musashi has brought her on board as MASS athlete to help her in her journey. Read about what she is up to here.
My name is Amanda Steer and I feel privileged to be a MASS athlete with Musashi for 2012. This is my first year with Musashi and I am really looking forward to a great year ahead.
For those of you that are interested, I work full time as a Police officer and I also instruct Les Mills RPM classes. I have always been fit and active and into living a healthy lifestyle my whole life. Training even started when I was old enough to be permitted entry to the gym!
The idea to compete in figure shows came in 2008 as I was a relatively new instructor and I really wanted to inspire people in some way to be fit and healthy and that meant looking the part!
In 2009 I entered and won my first Natural show, The ANB Asia Pacific as a Novice. From here on in I was hooked. In 2010 I placed 2nd and 3rd and most recently in October 2011 I won states and Nationals with the ANB. I couldn’t be happier with the journey I have had over the last 3 years. During this time I have increased my knowledge base in nutrition and supplementation.
I was introduced to Musashi products in 2008. Prior to that I had never really delved into the world of supplements. I knew when I started taking Musashi Supplements that they were tried and tested so I knew I was doing my body a favour. Nowadays, there is not a day or training session goes by when I am not using my beloved Musashi products.
A typical day for me at the moment is moderate cardio for no longer than an hour and a weight training session.
There are a couple of days a week that I take RPM classes so for me, that is cardio. I am also a road cycling enthusiast and surfer so I usually fit both of these hobbies into my week also. Somewhere in there is a shift with the Queensland Police Service at any given time of day. Shift work becomes an added challenge when I am preparing for a show as training requirements increase, fatigue comes hand in hand with this. This is when I am most grateful for Re-Activate Hardcore as it enables me to power through a training session and maintain alertness.
I am working towards a long term goal of competing in the State and National Shows with the ANB in 2013, followed by my first overseas venture competing in the World WNSO show in Las Vegas. It will be a big year for me next year.
In order to be successful, this year its head down bum up training weights consistently four days a week, some moderate cardio in there and looking after my nutrition and supplementation.
I’ll keep you posted next time as what I’m up to with my training. Until then, train hard, train smart.
