R E N E E - C O W L I N G

As a little girl, I've always been actively interested in many sports. From competitive swimming and diving at the ages or 6yrs, to playing basketball and netball in my later state school years, to mucking around on roller blades, fitness has been my life.

I tore my right ACL playing basketball when I was 19, and was told by my surgeon that to ensure I didn't re-injure my knee, to stay away from contact sport. This is when I found the gym, and fell in love with lifting. I honestly had no idea what I was doing in the gym, so I studied it. Everyday lunch-break at work, I would go online and research exercises, what they did, how to perform them and would admire on so many women's' physiques for hours and using them to create a 'dream body board' for inspiration.

Years went on and I somehow was dared into doing a bodybuilding bikini comp. Those who know me, would know I never turn down a dare, because I love the challenge and love to prove people wrong.

In 2014 I competed in my first bikini competition, which ignited something within. A fire, to succeed, and a hunger to win. I knew from this moment on, I wasn't going to stop until I created a physique that I was truly happy with, and one day be awarded with my Pro Card

I've been a Glam Fit Bikini customer from the get go, and each time a new bikini is created by Claire and her team of talents, I'm always amazed by how beautiful they are and always send me in tears. I love working with the girls to create a beautiful bikini and I cannot wait for the next creation!

On a personal level, I'm a happy, humble, genuine and fun country girl who enjoys spending time with my family, friends and my furbaby Tinka (pug x shitzu). During my weekdays, I'm an office person, and on weekends I enjoy exploring the food Melbourne has to offer via never ending list of funky cafés.

Between training 6 days a week and working, I'm also currently studying my Personal Training course, and between all three of these, I hopefully find some downtime to myself where I catch up with my family/friends and have a few well deserved hours on the coach watching a TV series or movie.
