Name: Belinda Wasowski
Weight: 63kg (58kg comp)
Employment: Personal Trainer, Intensity Personal Training
While I’ve been pretty active my whole adult life, the majority of my training has been cardio focused – boxing, running and interval training. I was introduced to weight training in 2007, but really didn’t take the weight training seriously until 2009 when I first decided to compete. Now I have a better understanding and first-hand experience of the role it plays in body composition changes.
Fitness and nutrition of course. Kayaking, camping and lazing around with a good coffee!
Since my last comp in 2010, my focus has been to gain more muscle and hope to place in the top 3 at INBA Queensland Titles in 2011 and compete nationally for the first time.
From a business perspective, I’m keen to continue to build my personal training business and motivate more women to take up weight training.
2011– INBA Queensland State Physique Titles – Figure Open Class 3 (2nd place)

I have been training with Russell Brereton for the past 12 months. The training program varies every 4-6 weeks, but my favourite program is German Volume Training – tough and intense, but over in 30mins.
Favourite exercise is definitely the deadlift.
I try to eat unprocessed foods as much as possible. Mon-Fri is for eating clean and training hard.
In the off-season, weekend treats include poached eggs on toast at our local café, and dinner at our favourite Japanese restaurant.
