Have you always led a healthy lifestyle?
I have always led a healthy, active lifestyle. I grew up in a small coastal town on the east coast of Australia. I was a very active kid and enjoyed surf-life-guarding, cross country and school sport to name a few. Needless to say I knew what my body was capable of doing and feeling from a young age so it was only natural for me to continue living an active and healthy life throughout my teens and twenties.
Describe a typical day in the life of Hannah Saul…
A typical day for me consists of morning cardio and a workout to start the day, followed by a light breakfast. Then, depending what I have on with work / meetings / shoots I get stuck into my work for the day. My afternoons are usually quite chilled. I will go for a walk or do a yoga or Pilates class to unwind then come home and cook dinner; something I love to do with my partner as we travel so much I crave home cooked meals!
What do you always have on hand in your kitchen?
Lots of fresh fruit and veggies and herbs, always an avocado, fresh bread and meat.
What is your favourite treat?
Good wine and Italian food!
As a model you must travel a lot, what are your top 3 tips for staying healthy on-the-go?
Drink a lot of water! It is so important to stay hydrated whilst travelling.
Try to stay within your normal exercise regime – My HanXFit app is so great for keeping me active as it has all the workout programs any girl ever needs to keep in shape. I can do them anywhere anytime with no gym required!
Try to eat good produce as much as possible. I always look for the closest wholefoods or another health food store as they are great for stocking up on healthy snacks.
Tell us about your fitness regime?
I always start the day with a 5-10km walk. I do 2-3 strength sessions a week, a Pilates class, 2 aerobic classes and I will do circuits from my app on other days.
Five beauty products you can’t live without…
Channel Hydro beauty serum, Tom Ford shade and illuminate, hydrating face masks, YSL touché eclat and tweezers!
Something you’ve never done but would love to try?
What would a perfect day look like to you?
A perfect day would usually be spent somewhere out of a city, relaxing, eating good food and surfing!
How do you like to relax in your spare time?
Usually by the beach, going for walks, long lunches…
Who is your biggest inspiration?
Candice Swanepoel. She is beyond gorgeous!
What is your favourite motivational quote?
Wake up with determination – go to bed with satisfaction.
Pieces from Hip & Healthy you love the most?
What do you have in store next career-wise?
My next move is to focus on building the HanXFit brand and working on constant updates for the app. Career wise, I want to build my portfolio internationally with my modelling.
