Moral of the story? It IS possible to build the body you want. It takes time, consistency, challenging yourself, and FOOD ? – I've been almost 10kg heavier, with lots of cellulite and an untoned body.

“On the left, I worked out probably 3-5 days a week. Cardio, light weights, and under-eating. On the right I train at least 3-5 days a week, minimal cardio, heavy weights, eating a lot. Moral of the story? It is possible to build the body you want. It takes time, consistency, challenging yourself, and food.”
Tammy, who has a son Wolff and daughter Saskia, says that her body looked very differently before and that she knows what it’s like to deal with a changing figure. “I’ve been almost 10kg heavier, with lots of cellulite and an untoned body. I’ve also had times that I’ve been too skinny with a little cellulite and almost no shape, and now after years of training and correct eating I have more muscle, pretty much no cellulite at all, and am healthier than ever even after two babies.”
Her fitness philosophy is the next:
- Now I train five days a week, combining strength exercises, high-intensity interval training, and cardio.
- I concentrate my training on creating a round, tucked up ass, without neglecting the upper body, back and press.
- I eat pure natural foods, avoiding junk food and anything with added chemicals and preservatives.
- I adhere to a strict diet for a week, and then on weekends, I allow myself a little cheat meal.
In an interview for Good American, Tammy said that her main advice for someone who is just starting fitness is to “do everything step by step”. “The daily introduction of small changes is of great importance in the long term. And have fun with it, “she says. “Going to the gym with a girlfriend or group classes can help ease the pain and actually enjoy the training.”
Tammy also showed off her favorite cosmetics and skin care products, calling Clinique’s night mask her “number first.” “I wake up with the smoothest skin! Another way out is Kora Organics Rose Hip Oil. I used it on my skin throughout my pregnancy and still apply to it! “, said Tammy.
What about future, Hembrow says she doesn’t want to calm down. “I want to continue to develop fitness programs and inspire women. I actually take into consideration what my subscribers want, and I like to work on creating programs that will fit the fitness goals.”
