Sian is a qualified PT & Instructor at her studio Onpoint Training. She has been a competing physique athlete since 2011 and specializes in body transformations and weight training systems.
Best sport or workout: I love to train my legs as its the strongest part of my body! Lunges are an awesome exercise. I also love a bit of cardio! Both sprints and longer distances. I enjoy sprints post workout and a longer run a couple of times per week, its great for clearing the head.
Favourite food: My favourite thing to eat is probably Greek yoghurt, granola, toasted nuts, berries and honey. That would be a once a week treat for me, so if I fancy something sweet in the week I clean it up a bit by having the yoghurt mixed with PhD Nutrition vanilla protein powder, toasted nuts and stevia sweetener sprinkled on top.
Signature scent: This is a tough one as I own over 15 perfumes!! But I'd say for Daytime: Chanel Madamoiselle or Flora by Gucci: Gorgeous Gardenia & Evening: Dior Addict or Gucci by Gucci.
Style crush: I'd pick two...in the past, Audrey Hepburn and in the present, Angelina Jolie always looks stunning whether casually dressed or on the red carpet.
Can't live without: Lipbalm! I have one in every bag and pocket at the ready. Second to that…mascara…
Guilty pleasure: One of the best guilty pleasures is meeting friends for an afternoon tea. Little sandwiches, cakes and pastries, a good catch up. Quality time spent.
Dream date: My husband of course! But if he was busy…Brad Pitt will do just fine.

What's in the bottom of your handbag: Another lipbalm!!! and a snack…always have a back up!
