Women Fitness President Ms. Namita Nayyar catches up with Becky Downie, British artistic gymnast and Winner of World silver medalist who talk about her workout, diet and her success story.

Namita Nayyar:

Walk us through your spectacular journey about how you were introduced to gymnastics?

Becky Downie:

I first got into gymnastics through a friend at school. My friend was always doing cartwheels in the playground and that is what inspired me to join. I started training when I 7 years old and loved it since day one.

Namita Nayyar:

You are a double European champion (2014 and 2016) and 2014 Commonwealth Games champion on the uneven bars as well as the 2019 World silver medallist. Among all these victories, which one is closest to your heart and why?

Becky Downie: British Artistic Gymnast and Winner of World Silver Medalist Talk About Her Workout, Diet and her Success Story

Becky Downie:

The 2014 European title was very special as it was my first major medal and it took me a very long time to accomplish that but I’d have to say my 2019 world silver means the most because it really has taken a lifetime for me to achieve and I’ve had to overcome some huge obstacles and setbacks to reach that goal.

Namita Nayyar:

Introduce us to a day in your life.

Becky Downie:

A typical day for me is usually waking up about 8am. I then have breakfast and get ready for my first training which usually starts about 10.30am and lasts until 1.30/2pm. I then have lunch at the gym, which is usually always a protein bar and some fruit, have a nap and start training again around 3pm for my second training session.

I finish training for the day around 5.30/6pm then I head home for dinner and recovery which involves icing, a hot bath and recovery flush with my normatec machine. Then I usually watch TV / chill out with my family before I go to bed.

Namita Nayyar:

Exercises that comprise a part of your fitness regime or workout routine that you may like to share with our viewers?

Becky Downie:

I do cardio sessions 3x per week which are mainly on the bike or cross trainer. I keep the impact low because my impact is high in the Gymnastics gym. These cardio session range from 20 – 40 minutes and are filled with interval training work.
