Influencer Workout Style Feat. MPG x LTS

Jaclyn, Stefanie, and Gabriella test-drive our MPG x LTS collab and give us the scoop on what keeps them motivated through their workouts.

One exercise every tall girl must swear by is side leg lifts! We need to keep these legs looking long and lean girls!

Any typical tall girl ‘hotspots' you focus on?


I like to work on my balance and strengthening core muscles. As a tall girl, our centre of gravity is so much higher and we don't always have the stability of someone with a lower centre of gravity. I use a Bosu ball or stability ball in every workout.

What motivates you to move?


Mostly chocolate. But I also love the feeling of being fit and having a healthy body. It helps for me to set short term goals, such as, "I will work out and eat healthy every day this week and then have a nice greasy burger on the weekend!" I am competitive and don't like to fail, so having a reward for myself works well.

What is your pre-workout power food?


I don't really have a pre-workout power food - but after my workout, I make sure to have some protein. My fave is non-fat Greek yogurt!

What is your best piece of advice for tall girls in the gym?


Adjust the equipment as much as you can for your height. And if you're not sure, ask a trainer to show you where the settings should be at! Also, stretch for 5-10 mins after every workout.

Every tall girl must swear by lunges and squats. We’ve got long legs so why not make them shine.

Any typical tall girl ‘hotspots' you focus on?


Most of the time I work on my lower body. If I'm going to have long legs, I want them to look great!

What motivates you to move?


I find my biggest motivation is myself. Once I get a taste of good energy and feeling good about myself and my body, I get addicted to that feeling and want to go more and more.

What is your pre-workout power food?


I'm still working on getting a solid workout routine figured out, and my diet is also still under construction, but I generally like to have some fruit and carbs before I work out. Something light yet with substance. An apple and granola bar, or some oatmeal to fuel my workout.

What is your best piece of advice for tall girls in the gym?


Don't worry about what's going on around you. Focus on yourself. Listen to your body - and do what feels best for you!

The exercise I love to hate is the stability ball for abs and legs. It's a hard workout in the beginning and you definitely feel the burn. However - as you progress, you'll start to enjoy it!

Any typical tall girl ‘hotspots' you focus on?


The hotspots I focus on the most are my legs - especially my thighs!

What motivates you to move?


Summer! I'm planning some vacations away this year. I want to feel confident, look great and tighten up a couple of places.

What is your pre-workout power food?


As I work out in the morning, I make porridge with coconut milk and a pinch of cinnamon powder. Or a fruity smoothie; typically strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, crushed ice and coconut water or natural yogurt.

What is your best piece of advice for tall girls in the gym?


Don't be afraid or embarrassed to ask a PT or an employee at the gym how to adjust some of the weight machines. When I started using machines, like the leg press and calf machines, I found it was so confusing. You have to adjust to suit your height and leg length and it can be hard to figure out which one of the levers needs to be adjusted. It's always better to ask if you're unsure, than to not know and possibly injure yourself.
