Personal

Imke's motivation comes from not putting too much pressure on herself.

She looks at fitness as a fun activity to do.

For this reason, she doesn’t need the motivation to go to the gym.

In fact, she looks forward to it.

In her opinion, the most critical factor in staying motivated is to focus on that little progress.

Every little step.

Be proud of yourself after training.

Try to find a way to enjoy the whole ride, not just the accomplishment of the goal.

She also underlines the importance of enjoying the process, not just ‘the fruits.’ It’s easy to get demotivated when the goal is far away.

But if you enjoy every step of the process on your way there, then your chances of success increase.

Work Out Routine

Imke doesn’t just train in the gym.

Her workout regimen includes all sorts of exercises, from walking, weight training, core exercises to full-on Marathon running. It’s this variety that makes fitness fun and challenging for her

Ab Training

If there’s a trademark muscle group on her physique, it would be her abs.

And according to Imke,

They haven't been ''made in the kitchen'', but rather in the weight room

She believes that training is just as important as diet when it comes to developing that lean, beach-ready figure.

Sleep And Recovery

Sleep is number one on the list of on her health priorities.

She believes that it’s critical for recovery as well as for maintaining low body fat.

Getting enough sleep also keeps her food cravings at bay.

She out found that she is more likely to snack on unhealthy foods when underslept.

For this reason, she’ll aim to get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep per night.

Nutrition

She sticks to a whole food diet that’s heavy on the vegetables.

It’s similar to a vegetarian diet.

However, she still includes some lean meats here and there.

This way, she ensures she gets enough protein, which is essential for muscle building.

Dates For Long Workouts

Long training is draining on her body.

When she trains for 90 or more minutes in the gym, her Glycogen stores get depleted. To counter this, she’ll snack on dates. These are a source of quick carbs that keep her fueled throughout the entire workout. [1]
