My name is Hayley Bertram I am from Victoria, Australia, I have been into a wide variety of training types throughout my life. These include everything from Track & Field to Pole Dancing fitness classes, sports modelling and now Competitive Body Building. I have always maintained a healthy and active lifestyle. Having a positive outlook on both life and training I always get the results I set out for. Along with being a personal trainer and manager of a supplement company named Australian sports nutrition I am also a fully qualified plasterer which has influenced my functional strength and physique.
My partner and I also have a business named DHS Bodybuilding which we specialise in physique development, contest preparation, dietary coaching & posing techniques. I began training specifically for competition at the beginning of 2008 and have developed my physique and knowledge base that has seen me successful ever year so far.
I’ve been lifting since I was 18, and have incorporated many different methods of training into my routines over the years. Since I trained very heavy for a few years, I packed on a lot of dense, quality muscle, and my goal has now become to maintain my muscle while streamlining my physique and my body lines. I lift 5 days a week, incorporating supersets, dropsets, FST-7, circuit work, and plyos into my routine. When I’m in contest prep I do 40-50 minutes of cardio twice a day, when I’m not prepping for a show I reduce my cardio to 45 minutes three times a week. My favorite body parts to train are back and shoulders, but recently I’ve really begun to love my lower body plyometric workouts as well.
My ultimate goal is a pro card in figure, so I will continue competing at the national level until I achieve that status. I also want to further my modeling career and continue to grow my business as well.
