Kitty Blomfield is a director at Nustrength Personal Training based in Brisbane Australia. She also has the Nustrength Youtube Channel with a series of different shows geared toward food prep, nutrition education and inspiring testimonials. She's passionate about empowering people through the right nutrition and strength training.
For many years Kitty struggled with body image and was your typical over-exerciser and under-eater. Her weight would yo-yo, she lacked energy, slept poorly, and suffered from terrible binge eating. It was so bad that she'd train six days a week for up to two and a half hours a day and would eat a low calorie and low carb diet.
In 2014 Kitty was introduced to the work of Doctor Ray Peat, Emma Sgourakis (The Nutrition Coach), Dodie Anderson and Rob Turner. Their research challenged her entire belief system around what constitutes ‘true health and fitness’. Since then, she's never looked back.
Kitty now only trains three days a week and does very little cardio apart from the occasional walk in the sun. She follows a structured and measured training program and eats to fuel her body now as opposed to depriving her body the way she used to.
As a result Kitty is the strongest she's ever been and she's in the best shape of her life but most importantly she feels the best she's ever felt. In 2015 Kitty competed in her first powerlifting competition and broke the GPC record for deadlifting in the under 75kg weight class. In March 2016 she competed at ProRaw8 and won the female deadlift only competition with a deadlift of 207.5kgs at 71.5kgs body weight.
She believes that if you want to be in the best shape of your life you need to love the process. If you focus on getting stronger in the gym, tracking and measuring your training and nutrition and nourish your body with the right food the physique will look after itself.
According to Kitty, there's something extremely empowering about being a strong female, she wants to help you become the healthiest, happiest and strongest version of yourself in and out of the gym.
