Our beauty and not to mention Australian high-jump champion Amy Pejkovic shares her secrets with ELLE Australia on how she keeps fit, with 9 training sessions a week this secret is one we don't want to miss...
How do you like to keep fit?
Being an athlete I train several times a week, including double sessions. I'll wake up early and do a gym session then head to the track that afternoon.
What does your daily exercise routine involve?
It defiantly varies from day to day; a track session may consist of running, then the next day it can be plyometrics [jump training], high jump technical sessions, gym sessions and Pilates. It all depends on what my coach has programmed for me.
What’s the best way to motivate yourself?
Picture your goal every single day. I have 1.9 meters and 2.10 meters, which is the world record, measured on the wall in my room. It's a daily reminder of what I'm working towards.
And your favourite smoothie recipe?
To be honest I don't really have a favourite. But there always has to be bananas and blueberries mixed into it.
Best snack to keep you energised?
Apples and bananas, or if I'm feeling spontaneous during the day I will cook up porridge, regardless of the fact I have it every day for breakfast. I mix in banana and mixed berries with cinnamon and honey.
What is the one thing you never fail to do for your body?
Get enough sleep. Sleep is extremely crucial for an athlete, or for any person in fact. Having such long days with training in the morning, shooting during the day, then training in the evening can take its toll on your body. I generally try and take a twenty-minute power nap during the day – that's all your body needs to keep functioning.

When we fare welled our beloved Natalia, we all knew there were great things to come...Lucky for us, those 'great things' are here and it's well and truly obvious that her creativity is unstoppable.
We've kicked off with a 10/10 bad ass photo shoot for Oyster Online featuring Chic Girls Manon as Bjork, Sophia as Madonna, Yaya as Lauryn Hill, Olivia as Sade, Ollie as Siouxie Sioux and Anthea as Jane Birkin.
Yes you read that right and yes it's awesome...
"Jane Birkin was portrayed as a wild sex kitten and she had amazing style that has been timeless — her pictures from the 60s are still fashionable today. I think she is amazing and it was so fun to play dress up and be a bit naughty for the camera haha!" - Anthea
"I portrayed Lauryn Hill in this amazing shoot. Lauren is an amazing woman and has had a great career as a whole. It was fun because she is someone I look up to and have loved for years. She has always been controversial and consistently speaks her mind. Through her music and career choice Lauryn always looks to speak to her fans and really truly inspire. I loved her performance in the Sister Act 2 and I think that when I truly looked into her life and career. In this shoot we focused on her 90s style — her hairstyle and natural make-up choices. I had heaps of fun...It was so much fun portraying this incredible icon. I hope she sees this shoot. I think Natalia did an amazing job with this project and I'm glad she chose me to be a part of it." - Yaya
"Madonna will always be the undeniable queen of pop — a label given to her not only due to the popularity of her music but also her controversially outrageous antics that caused international mania and idolisation. To me, Madonna is a fearless entertainer who has always dared to venture into territory that is considered, perhaps, taboo. I would argue that it is this quality that has driven her career to span over decades. Everyone loves a sassy maverick!" - Sophia
"I look at Sade and see a woman oozing with confidence and sex appeal. It's empowering to see a woman be so compelling in such an understated manner." - Olivia
"Siouxie has always been a great inspiration to me, the strength in her voice and performance along with her dynamic aesthetic and powerful attitude gives me courage. Having the opportunity to embody her spirit in imagery was a wonderful experience." - Ollie
