The Gold Coast Instagram star tells New Idea that she feels ‘less sluggish’ when she fits a workout into her busy schedule, and says her top tip for other mums is to find the time to exercise - even if it's a quick session in the lounge room.
‘I honestly feel better when I get my workout in, less sluggish and I find it easier to keep up with my kids,’ Tammy says.
‘Whether it’s a gym workout or HIIT home workout I always try to fit it in when I can.’
The successful model – who has launched her own online store selling luxury workout gear called the Saski Collection – has always had an interest in fashion and fitness and says that bringing the two together has been a dream come true.
‘I wanted to give the market a taste of what I would want to wear myself and they seem to like it,’ she says.
‘We’ve hit revenue targets above million-dollar mark in just 5 months, which still amazes me.’
Looking good may seem to come naturally to Tammy, but she works hard at it - training three to five days a week doing minimal cardio and heavy weights - but she also says there are some simple tricks time-poor mums can do to tone up too.
‘I will often do some workouts from my at home booty program – you only need dumbbells, or I will do a HIIT workout in the lounge room,’ Tammy explains about her own routine.
‘I recently posted an at home HIIT workout on my YouTube channel. I did it in the process of moving house when I was really feeling the need for a pick-me-up.
‘There was a lot going on that week and I was feeling it, I decided to film and post it on my channel to show how I can fit in a quick workout throughout your day.’
And as for the foods you need to fuel a derriere like hers, Tammy says it’s pretty simple.
‘For me lean protein like chicken breast, turkey and fish, really helps, but I find that with trying to build my booty I wasn’t consuming the amount of protein I needed so supplements like protein shakes helped too,’ she explains.
‘But I didn’t supplement my meals with these it was always a combination of both.
‘I needed to eat lots to build that area so I also ate lots of complex carbohydrates like brown rice, oatmeal, potatoes and healthy fats.’
‘I eat every two to three hours,’ she goes on.
‘For breakfast I usually eat oats with Women’s Best protein powder. I always have protein shakes after my workouts and love to eat fish, chicken, turkey, beans and vegetables,’ she adds.
‘I’ve been trying to cut back on meat lately which I have found difficult. I usually end my day with oats and protein again. Boring I know!’
