Bec Donlan moved to New York City from Melbourne two years ago and brought her “Sweat with Bec” business to the Big Apple. Bec is a personal trainer, holistic coach and a self-professed nutrition obsessed, food fanatic.
Bec’s philosophy is that you can become the best version of yourself without feeling deprived. She brings a bit of sass to her holistic approach to build up her clients from the inside out. And when it comes to the inside, Bec is very careful about what she puts into her body. She now makes SPRUCE™ and POW® a part of her daily routine to keep herself and her clients fueled and on the right track.
Why do you use EBOOST?
I really love getting the most out of my day, I work crazy hours and constantly help others achieve their fitness goals. When training myself I can’t afford to have a lackluster workout due to low energy levels. POW pre-workout is a super clean energy I can rely on and I know my workouts will be killer.
What’s your workout routine?
My workout week is packed, it’s what keeps me sane, gives me the energy to get through my crazy work days and cope with stress.
I love to lift heavy, to give most exercises a core focus, am a sucker for jump rope and love a good boxing sesh. I have discovered over the years that mixing up my weight training with HIIT sessions is key to keep my fitness game on point.
My typical week looks a bit like this…
- Monday: 20 min jump rope as well as chest and triceps
- Tuesday: 20 min running intervals on the treadmill and back and biceps
- Wednesday: 45 min Boxing with Jump rope intervals and abs.
- Thursday: Leg Day!!
- Friday: 20 mins jump rope and Shoulders
- Saturday: 2x 25min HIIT sessions. This is usually full body, lots of crazy explosive movements, abs work and where I get to play around and have some fun and try new things.
- Sunday: Active rest day- aka less intense leisurely outdoorsy activities, this could be anything from a hike to a bike ride and always so important for Sunday Funday!
What’s your typical diet?
As a trainer, a foodie and a very health conscious active person I believe diet plans shouldn’t be about deprivation, rather making better choices.
I can’t eat gluten and generally avoid grains, soy and sugar. I am a huge believer of non-processed foods and only putting great quality food in my body.
I love to cook, I love food and love to eat so the thought of being hungry terrifies me.
My typical day looks a bit like this but this will change day today because variety is key!
Breakfast: 1 egg, 3 egg white omelet, 1 cup of veggies.
1 double espresso with a tiny dash of almond milk
1 SPRUCE mixed with water- this starts my day off with three serves of greens and helps alkalize my body.
Snack: Handful of raw almonds
Lunch: Lean animal protein – I mainly have white fish or chicken breast (palm sized)
2 cups of veggies – lots of dark leafy greens
A natural fat – I tend to alternate between avocado and goats cheese (thumb sized)
After lunch, but just before I workout gotta have my POW pre-workout.
Snack: Post workout protein smoothie. This usually consists of 1 scoop of protein, 1 cup of frozen berries, 1 tbs chia seeds, ½ tsp cinnamon, 1 cup of water into a blender and BOOM.
Dinner: Similar quantities as lunch but always different veggies and I am usually a lot more creative at night due to time haha.
Snack: Experimental healthy high protein desserts. This might be a chia pudding, protein pancake with berries etc.
