Lee Furlong’s Workout Week

Fox Sports' Lee Furlong shares her fitness and diet secrets with us.

What is your weekly exercise regime?

I train four times a week and I like to have as much variety in my training regime as possible. I usually do a couple of sessions in the gym which include boxing, sprint training, weights and pilates. I also enjoy training outside if the weather is nice. I play tennis, swim and go for runs along the beach.

How do you stay motivated to train and exercise?

Because of all the extra energy I have when I’m training. At times it can be hard to be motivated all year round. But as soon as I stop exercising I feel like a different person.

What's in your "gym" bag?

I often start my day with a Body Science protein smoothie, the body for women protein powder tastes amazing with low fat milk , blue berries and bananas. It’s an easy high protein breakfast option to have on the run.

Favorite workout song?

Definitely “Are you gonna go my way?“ by Lenny Kravitz.

What is a normal day's eating plan like for you?

Body Science protein smoothie

Chicken and salad sandwich on Rye bread

Steak and veggies or fish and veggies for dinner

What is your biggest indulgence?

Sour lollies. I’m obsessed with them but I’ll only have them a few times a week. My favourites are the sour snakes.

How do you look after your skin?

With a facial every month and lots of tlc. I make sure I get as much sleep as possible very night and I try and eat the right foods to make sure my skin doesn’t break out. My skin can be quiet sensitive and if I eat the wrong foods it will show with my skin.

How do you look after your hair?

I use a heat protector cream if I am ever going to blow dry it. I also love using hair treatments whenever I have the time.

What is the last thing you bought?

Ingrediants to bake cupcakes. Baking is one of my favourite ways to relax. I am not a great cook, but I am ok at baking.

What is the toughest challenge you have had to face?

Reading my first live sports bulletin on fox sports when I had just turned 21 and was petrified about the thought of live tv.

What is your proudest career moment?

Working at Wimbledon as a sports reporter. In my opinion it is the best sporting event there is and I had an absolute ball.

How do you relax and chill out?

Sleeping in is a great way to unwind from a busy week and I also love nothing more than spending time with my two gorgeous dogs Bobbi and Clappo.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

My mum would always say “ Everything happens for a reason” and it has always helped me in life remembering this .

What are your plans now?

To continue doing what I love and that’s working in television. One of the best parts about my job is that every day is different and I never know what to expect and that’s what always keeps me motivated.
