Blogger, vlogger, sports model and co-founder of the #girlsgains movement, Zanna Van Dijk is one of the fitness industry’s biggest rising stars. When Women’s Fitness magazine cited her as “one to watch in 2016” they weren’t wrong; she currently has almost 100k Instagram followers and her first book The Balanced Body comes out at the end of the year. I caught up with her to talk smoothie recipes, guilty pleasures and favourite London restaurants.

My guilty pleasure is: Pepsi Max and Galaxy milk chocolate.
The quickest way to a flat stomach is: Sorry to break it to you but there’s no quick fix….it takes consistent training and proper nutrition.
One wellness trend you’ll never see me try: Juice cleanses.
Day or night? Day
