Hayley took time out to speak to us…
Hayley, many thanks for taking time out to speak to us and
congratulations on your recent win at the Birmingham Bodypower in May. We’re
going to be covering the bodyfitness sport with you in more depth over the
coming months but to begin with how long have you been training?
I’ve been weight training for about 3-4 yreas now, but always trained as an
athlete as a kid from National athletics to running sprints training twice
a week, to competing in basketball for England in Europe.
Where do you train?
I train at Fitspace in Lincoln
You’re known for your hardcore workouts, what would a typical week
in the gym be like?
My current training is 30-45minutes of cardio 6-7 days a week and
Monday-Back plus I teach bodypump class.
Friday- Biceps and Triceps
Saturday-Cardio 50-60 mins/Rest
We always ask bodybuilders if they have a favourite body part they
like to train, any one in particular for you?
I like training them all but if I had to choose one it would be legs; I have
a love-hate relationship with them!!
What about a least favourite? We’ve all got one!
If any it’s chest!
When it comes to competing you’ve done very well in a remarkably
short period of time, what was your first competition?
It was an NPA competition in Batley two years ago.
When you look back at those competitions which one gave you the most
Placing top 6th in my first year of competing at the National finals in
Nottingham and competing in the British Grand prix in London this year.
You must have been delighted with your recent win at
Yes! I’ve won it two years in a row now.
That’s a great achievement Hayley, so what’s next in competition
terms, have you an event in mind?
Yes, next one is in November-the British finals.
Lincolnshirebodybuilding.com believes the ladies side of
bodybuilding and fitness in general gets a raw deal in media terms. It’s
difficult for any woman looking to start up in fitness training and competing
to know where to start. What advice would you give?
Consistency is the key, accompanied by good nutrition and advice and lots of patience! I would highly recommend finding yourself a knowledgeable coach (or someone who knows more than you) and only listen to them. Excuses are just that … there are no excuses!
Couldn’t agree more! How do you see the future of women’s
bodybuilding/physique competitions? Do you see the fitness/bikini side becoming
I do I think it will make it more appealing to all shapes and types of women
as it shows a little bit of everything. Some women are put off by bodybuilding
so it brings more women into the sport for a more feminine, glamorous look.
It’s certainly helped bring the ladies side more publicity but what
can be done to improve awareness of women’s fitness/physique competitions at the
county and national level?
More publicity for sure with local shows etc and more role models in
different counties with women showing direction and how great it is to lead a healthy
Who athletes do you most admire in the sport?
Monica Brant, Jamie Eason and Ava Cowan.
What has training given you personally?
I enjoy the strictness and routine of dieting that comes with competing; the
personal challenge of pushing my body to its limits and watching my physique
change from year to year. I love my lifestyle and wouldn’t change it for
Ok, now down to the important stuff, what’s your favourite
Gaspari, their protein drinks taste amazing when I’m dieting!!!
What about junk food? Can’t be easy to have any but what’s your
Ice cream.. love it!
So what does the future hold for Hayley Brylewski? What’s the game
To keep competing and getting better each year and see what the sport brings
me in terms of more sports modelling and sponsorship. To keep improving my
condition each time I compete … bigger, stronger and leaner! To be a positive
role model for future competitors and a Pro Card would be awesome – a dream
