Gabrielle Maston, business owner of Changing Shape, based in Sydney, Australia, is a qualified dietitian, nutritionist and exercise physiologist, who has a degree in sports science and nutrition with honors in clinical dietetics. Maston has also recently completed a sports dietetics qualification and is a certified personal trainer and group exercise instructor.
As an accredited nutritionist and dietitian and a sports dietitian, Maston offers her clients a life changing service that helps them to combine good healthy eating with an exercise program that suits their personal goals. Maston also hosts corporate speaking events where she showcases her own culinary skills and teaches participants about better eating and lifestyle choices.
Maston has worked in the fitness industry for more than 9-years and says that she became a personal trainer because she wanted to learn more.
“I became a personal trainer immediately after finishing school. I loved training, and I wanted to learn more so I could get faster results and be able to write my own programs,” said Maston. “All my techniques are tried and tested. The effects are immediate, due to high-intensity resistance bearing . My clients see effects within a couple of weeks and these results are motivating,” she said.
The results her client’s achieve is what motivates Maston to continually improve her services and offer her clients her best.
“I get enjoyment out of hearing how clients are feeling better, fitting into clothes they have never worn before,” said Maston. “My clients often say I am costing them a fortune because they have to buy a new wardrobe,” she said.
Maston says that she loves her work so much that at times she forgets it is employment.
“My line between work and pleasure is blurred, what I do for work I enjoy. It doesn’t feel like work,” said Maston. “At the most, I try and leave Sunday free. This is my rest day from clients and working out. On this day you will usually catch me at the beach,” she said.
To maintain her own health and fitness, Maston does a range of activities.
“I teach cardio groups fitness classes like cycle and boxing, so I do the class with my participants,” said Maston. In my lunch breaks, I lift weights or go swimming,” she said. “If I am really keen I may sneak a run in after my class.”
Maston believes that diet is 90% of everything that you do, so it is important to get it right and combine it with exercise. This way you look great, feel good and enjoy your life.
“Diet and exercise goes hand-in-hand,” said Maston. “You can’t do one without the other and expect long-term success,” she said. “Make nutrition fun and interesting, similarly with your exercise. That way it never feels like you’re on a “diet” or “exercising.”
“Eating low GI unprocessed foods is also important,” said Maston. “I can defiantly feel the difference after eating processed carbohydrates. It really drives hunger levels,” she said. “Eating more natural, whole foods will prevent sugar cravings and keep your hunger at bay.”
In terms of fitness, Maston recommends weight lifting.
“Weight lift, it gives you a better buffer zone for calorie burning when your diet is a miss,” said Maston. “Plus, the bonus is, if you do put on a bit of body fat it will still better your body shape.”
