Day in the life with Tegan Haining – Tegan’s fitness and eating in a day
Sometimes referred to as trainer to the stars, which include David Beckham, Natalia Imbruglia and Jessica Gomes, Tegan Haining embraces a holistic and balanced life that she shares with her clients. With an already successful career as an international model, Tegan’s interest in helping others in achieving their well being goals led to further study in Fascia Stretch Therapy and training as a Personal Trainer, working in one of our favourite London haunts, Bodyism.
Wake up! I will rehydrate with two glasses of water and a snack full of healthy fats such as a handful of almonds, ½ an avocado or tablespoon of coconut oil straight from the jar. I will usually train clients around 6:30am onwards but don’t like to eat breakfast super early.
Smoothies would have to be my go-to breakfast meal in the warmer months. They are quick to make and filled with so many nutritious ingredients! My favourite recipe is 1 cup milk (coconut is my choice), scoop of protein powder (my preference is whey), handful of berries and a handful of ice.
After drinking my smoothie, the supplements l am currently taking are St Johns Wort and B Vitamins.
Sometimes I would do Pilates at 9.30am (But only once per week)
Mid Morning Snack: Natural yoghurt with shredded coconut and half a mango.
Strength Training (twice per week) or Yoga (once per week).
My training is usually around this time as I am often with clients early morning and late evenings.
My strength sessions are at Fitness Culture in Bondi Junction. It’s always great to have a training partner and I train with Dan the owner there. We do a split week of training either pulling or pushing movements. It’s great as there’s a lot of butt exercises! At the moment we are doing lots of deadlifts, back squats, weighted box step ups as well as plenty of upper body rows and push ups for a strong core.
Lunch time. Huge salad with lots of greens and either chicken or fish for a healthy source of protein.
Arvo snack: 1x Soft boiled egg with Spring Wholefoods Sprouted Seed Bread toasted soldiers for dipping.
Dinner: Grilled chicken breast, broccoli, green beans and sweet potato mash.
Dessert: 3 Squares of The Carob Kitchen Coconut Chocolate, (it’s sugar free and delicious!) and a chamomile tea.
Before bed, l like to take Magnesium and Vitamin C powder, with a Probiotic that was suggested from my Naturopath.
