Nina SilicPerth, Australia
Nina is an IFBB Bikini Pro Athlete, Bikini Champion, Oxygen Cover Girl and an Australian health and fitness coach. Nina spent years yo-yo dieting in a bid to look ‘thin’ as she pursued a dancing career followed by the focus of becoming a pro bikini model. At 25 years of age the damage she had done to her body through crash dieting and excess cardio caught up with her: she was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism amongst other health issues. Following Nina’s history of crash dieting and over training for bikini shows in the pursuit of the perfect physique, her metabolism shut down and she gained weight uncontrollably.
Over the course of 2 years, Nina worked hard to repair her body. She utilised reverse dieting to heal her metabolism, changed her diet to restore her hormone balance, modified her training to assist with optimal health and made over her mind to ensure a lasting recovery.
Today she still finds it a battle to balance her hormones and while reaching healthy aesthetic goals, but she has none-the-less found a way to continue a fit and healthy lifestyle while helping others to do the same .
Meet Nina at the Oxygen Magazine stand 28th, 29th, 30th April.
