Australian fitness model & personal trainer Dominique le Toullec is no stranger to health & eating clean.
I mean, just take a look at the pictures. She obviously lives, eats, & breaths health. Her outlook is relatable & simple- mix up your workouts, eat tons of antioxidant-filled foods, & don’t give up!
Anyway this babe is total fitspiration; check her out:
+ Introduce yourself:
Dominique le Toullec: I’m a qualified personal trainer. I specialize in training woman and achieving fat loss, body sculpting, muscling toning, lean muscle gain, & providing nutritional guidance. I love helping people achieve the bodies they desire. Some of my qualifications are MMAXFit Level 1 instructor ( boxing, kickboxing, MMA ), a certification in women/menopause fitness, & a boxing certification in pre & postnatal.
I’m also a fitness modeling which I absolutely love; some of my recent campaigns are with Rebel Sports Australia, MMAXFit Australia, & I’m a regular on The Today Show displaying fitness equipment!
+ Quick skinny tip?
DLT: With hard work & determination anything is possible! I show my clients amazing, easy tips all the time & give them all advice on maintaining their results.
My favorite quick tip is starting the day with a glass of warm water ( have this before breakfast ) with a half of a squeezed lemon & add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. I enjoy drinking this while doing a five minute relaxation/yoga session ( or in other words an amazing stretching session! ). This combination enables my body to wake up properly & prepare for the day.
I don’t think there are any quick tricks when it comes to fitness- the reality is simple. Healthy, clean eating & proper training provide results. Don’t give up, results take time and don’t happen over night, but they DO & WILL happen!
+ Weekly workout schedule?
DLT: I train at least five days a week.
I make sure to get a combination of cardio, strength training, yoga/Pilaties/Bikram each week.
Cardio will usually be an outdoor activity – a run, an intense kickboxing, or boxing session. In the gym I’ll do HIIT training on the treadmill or rower.
Strength training changes every six weeks: I do circuits, resistance/weight training, TRX training, body weight exercises, & interval training with plyometrics.
It’s so important to keep changing it up to keep your body guessing. If you’re doing the same routine you’re likely to get the same results.
+ Go-to healthy food?
DLT: I’m a big salad person. I love creating gourmet salads with whatever healthy ingredients are in my kitchen.
I’ll always try to include protein too ( chicken, fresh fish, tuna, tofu, & eggs ).
I always use as many vegetables as possible; some of my favourites are avocado, cucumber, tomatoes, spinach, & red cabbage. Chickpeas are great if you’re hungry- they keep you fuller for longer. Tip: if you need to use a tinned option make sure to rinse the chickpeas before adding them to a salad. It gets rid of the preservatives that have been added to the tin.
+ Cocktail of choice?
DLT: I’m really not a big cocktail or alcohol drinker. However, I love Pinot Noir- it’s smooth, light, & full of antioxidants!
+ Motivation to stay in shape?
DLT: I love gaining inspiration from others, go onto your social media sites and get encouraged by others that are on the same path as you. There are some amazing health bodies out there and people behind those bodies that will tell you exactly how they achieved them. Seeing someone achieve their dream body motivates me to push myself a little bit harder everyday.
+ World’s best beauty product?
+ Natural beauty remedy that you do?
DLT: I love to use organic rosehip oil on my face. It comes from wild rosehips & it’s a naturally rich source of essential fatty acids, vitamins, & antioxidants!
My best beauty remedy is to keep myself healthy from the inside so I glow on the outside. Food makes your skin glow! Eat avocados, salmon, & blueberries all have amazing health/skin benefits. Flushing the system out with my lemon/apple cider vinegar mix also helps the skin glow.
+ A peak inside your makeup bag?
+ Quick recipe?
DLT: Here’s an amazing healthy sweet treat:
Blueberries on a Stick:
+ Directions: get all your blueberries and place them on your skewers. Roll your blueberry sticks in yogurt ( make sure to get a thick coating ). Coat each stick with sprinkling of cinnamon ( & for those who want some extra sweetness ) brown sugar. Place in the freezer. ENJOY!
