How excited do you get when you meet someone who shares the same passions in life as you do?
Well if you're anything like me, it's super exciting & sometimes hard to contain your excitement & this is how I felt when I sat down to chat about SPORT, FAMILY & WELLNESS with former professional Ironwoman Karla Gilbert.
Karla dominated the sport of Ironwoman racing for 10yrs, including winning the first ever professional Ironwoman race as a teenager.
Before immersing herself in ironwoman racing, Karla experienced sporting success in other sports, representing Queensland in Cross Country Running, track & field & swimming. Her passion for water sports is still alive today & she now competes internationally in marathon stand up paddleboard events.
What are the life lessons Karla has learnt from sport?
+ Being consistent with everything she does - she believes Consistency IS the KEY.
+ Showing up for herself each & every day
+ Considering her future with every decision she makes.
+ Not giving up, BE PERSISTANT.
+ Using every opportunity to learn & grow including her mistakes
In a nutshell, what does body confidence mean to her?
+ Being confident in your own skin
+ Doing away with comparison because we are ALL unique
+ Nourishing yourself well to give your body the best chance to perform well.
+ Creating a belief system which helps you thrive in your life
Karla has always taken the responsibility for her health & wellness into her own hands & loves to keep up to date with the latest training methods & food trends, so the decision to become a Lifestyle, Food & Wellness Coach was a natural progression for her to make.
She continues to inspire through her wellness blog Ironmum Karla & is currently experiencing beautiful success with her 1:1 health coaching & her 7wk online e-course "THE KARLA GILBERT METHOD".
What did I love most about meeting Karla?
+ How she is now encouraging her two daughters to find their passions in life.
+ The way life has fallen into place for her because she is following her heart.
+ She radiates kindness, positivity & inner strength.
+ She loves simple, quick & easy meals just like ME!
