Jade Parker Dancer
Jade is a dancer who is passionate about her line of work. She talks to Sundried about training and motivation.
How do you use dance to keep fit?
Dance is a full body workout and is great cardio. It helps with balance and co-ordination and is also a lot of fun.
Do you do any other training outside of dance?
Yes, I go to the gym. I like weight training, HIIT classes and just going for long runs. I try to vary my workouts to keep myself motivated
What are your fitness goals?
To maintain a strong and healthy body while improving on my own fitness and endurance.
Where do you find your training motivation/inspiration?
In my line of work, appearance is quite important so I am aware I need to keep in shape but luckily it's something I have always enjoyed doing. I know that the healthier I am, the more my dancing will improve so this acts as great motivation.
What advice would you give our readers to stay in shape?
Find something you enjoy, whether that's an activity, sport, class, or exercise. It will be so much easier if you enjoy it and have fun while working out.
Do you follow a specific nutrition plan and if so, what/when do you eat?
I do eat mostly healthy foods but I don’t limit myself to anything; if i want a slice of pizza I will definitely have that slice. I live by the motto 'everything in moderation'.
What do you like about Sundried and what's your favourite bit of our kit?
I love that the activewear is eco-friendly and is just trying to leave our planet in better shape than we found it. It's also high performing and will push you to your limit. My favourite piece so far is the Sundried Solaro women’s leggings, they are high waisted and cinching in all the right places.
