At 28, when Erin Stern missed out on qualifying for the Olympic high jump team by three centimetres, a door closed.  But another one soon opened.

Still eager for a challenge, Erin set her eyes on figure competitions. Today, the 35-year-old is an IFBB pro, one of the top athletes in figure, health and fitness expert, cover model, motivational speaker and author of five e-books.


Eat five to six small meals per day.

Meal 1: 5 egg whites and ½ cup oats

Morning snack: Protein shake and 15 almonds

Lunch: 110g chicken, ½ cup cooked brown rice and spinach salad

Morning snack: 110g ground turkey with 4 rice cakes and spinach salad with vinaigrette

Dinner: 110g grilled steak and steamed veggies or a sirloin burger with green beans

Evening snack: Protein shake with water or light almond milk and 1 tbsp almond or peanut butter





Erin’s training focuses on a combination of physical and performance enhancement. She does short, intense workouts to help her carve her best body.

Monday: Shoulders and arms

Tuesday: Plyometric circuit and legs

Wednesday: Rest or cardio

Thursday: Back

Friday: Chest and shoulders

Saturday: High-intensity interval cardio

Sunday: Rest

Train hard with 30 to 60 seconds of rest between each set. If you’re experienced with lifting weights, do supersets (two exercises back-to-back (i.e. upright rows and reverse flyes (with no rest) as they really amp up the intensity and maximise results in the gym.
