We were lucky enough to get to interview the lovely Kat Shoob last week, a lady with a crazy schedule and a kickin’ attitude to life! When Kat isn’t presenting, The Vodaphone Big Top 40 Chart every Sunday 4-7pm, she is the main dep for Lisa Snowdon on the Capital Breakfast Show or doing voiceovers. Here’s what she had to say:
FG: With your crazy schedule, when do you get to work out?
K: I always try to get my gym out of the way in the morning, I’m definitely a morning workout person! I’m just not a person that can go in the evening.
FG: How often do you train a week?
K: I definitely get four sessions in a week on average, my schedule can be different each day but I generally get the four workouts done. I go to classes really, as I’m not really a person that likes to work out on their own, so classes work for me. I like to mix it up so I do circuits, bootcamp, ab classes etc.
FG: What is your favourite workout?
K: I’m really liking swimming at the moment, you’re just in your own bubble. I know that that’s a time that I will not be checking my blackberry which I’m generally stuck to! If I’ve got something on my mind, I will go swimming, it really helps to clear my mind. I also like workouts that you really feel sweaty afterwards, like circuits.
FG: What is your least favourite workout?
K: I would rather eat my own vomit than do spinning!
FG: Oh dear…
K: I know, I hate it!
FG: Why is training important to you?
K: I think that eating healthy alone, isn’t enough. I like to enjoy food at the weekend and working out allows me to do that. I don’t see it as my punishment, it’s just how I keep the balance. It also just keeps my head really clear.
FG: What about food, what’s your favourite food?
K: I spent some time in L.A. last year and have become obsessed with egg white omelettes! I’m not a big cooker, so I’m very much an on-the-go food grabber
FG: Ok, since you’re the music lady, what are your top tracks to workout to?
K: Ooh, I really like music you can really just stomp along to, I’m a big fan of Disclosure, anything by David Guetta, some classic Usher but I guess my top 5 would be:1La La La, by Naughty Boy (feat. Sam Smith) 2Need U (100%), by Duke Dumont (feat. A*M*E) 3Waiting All Night, by Rudimental (feat. Ella Eyre) 4Blurred Lines, by Robin Thicke (feat. T.I. & Pharrell) 5Sweat, by Snoop Dogg v. David Guetta
