Jess Dickson: Gym Crush

How did you get started in fitness?
I initially started my fitness journey after realizing I had gained 20kgs in the first year after I finished high school from unhealthy eating and partying all the time. Once I realized how unhealthy my life was, and growing up relatively fit, I joined a gym, did some research online I began doing weights in the gym and cardio outdoors. After becoming stagnant in my training and recognizing I wasn’t achieving the results I wanted, I decided to train towards a body building competition and enlisted a body sculpting coach to help with my conditioning and muscle gain. Ever since then, I have not looked back and my health and fitness levels and goals have never been better.

How do you stay motivated in your career?
I make consistent and achievable goals. Goals that are not too far out of reach, but ones that will still require a challenge. I am very goal driven and therefore, this creates constant pathways to achieve my what I set out to achieve and this keeps me motivated.

What’s your favorite music to workout to?
I love anything upbeat. I tend to find I get more out of my workouts if I am listening to music from all different genres as they change up my moods. My favourite for cardio workouts is dance/house music and for weight training it would be Hip Hop and Pop with a bit of Rock in there also.

What’s your favorite cheat meal?
I am a sucker for burgers. So my favorite cheat meal would be a burger from Grill’d, and Australian owned burger franchise.

How do you deal with cravings?
I live by IIFYM. Therefore, if I feel like something naughty, I just have it and rearrange my other meals. However, when the cravings are bad, I try to drink more water or snack on some veggie sticks.

What does your diet consist of?
My usual breakfast consists of Salmon, Asparagus, Broccoli and cottage cheese. I find the fats keep my stomach satisfied for a longer period of time and also helps with cravings.

Mid morning snack – Zucchini Oats (Zoats) with berries and protein
Lunch – Lean red meat, sweet potato and zucchini noodles
Afternoon snack – banana, almonds and berries
Dinner – White Fish with assorted vegetables and spices
Dessert – Greek Yoghurt, banana and cinnamon and sometimes some ice cream

What are your 3 favorite exercises?
I love anything that activates my delts. Lateral raises are probably my favorite. 2nd would be squats and 3rd- chin ups.

Which female fit celebrity’s physique do you admire the most?
I love everything about Michelle Lewin and Paige Hathaway. They embody everything I believe in, in relation to health and fitness and their physiques are to die for!

What celebrity male’s physique do you find idea on guys?
I seriously have a thing for biceps and obliques. I think that Mark Walhberg and Tom Hardy have amazing physiques.

What supplements would you use/recommend if any?
I regularly take Creatine, BCAA’s and protein powders. When I am not feeling motivated, or lack energy I will take a thermogenic pre-workout from Recon Nutrition.

Do you have any advice or inspirational words for someone who is aspiring to get into the fitness world?
I found that I need to have a goal. Not an end goal, as I always want to keep improving, but just a goal. I.E aim for more intensity, or more weight etc. Without something to look forward to, I found my motivation isn’t as high.

“Do the best you can until you know or can do better. Then, when you know better, do better”

“Work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express, not to impress. Don’t strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence felt.”
