Hey guys, Kit here!
For those of you who don't know me, I'm in charge of all things Gym here at BMHQ.
Let me tell you a secret: We took forever to decide on a model for our latest shoot. Like, FOREVER. We were determined to find the perfect model. We didn't just want a pretty face, you see. We wanted a girl who was The Real Thing. A fitness junkie who embodied the slightly off-beat, "we take our workouts seriously, and ourselves not seriously at all" mentality of Black Milk Gym.
We were having so much trouble finding someone that it got to just a few days before the shoot and we still had no model.
But then we found Danni.
Danni had it all. She's a super smarty pants, currently studying a dual degree in Law and Justice, she competed athletics at a National level, and one look at her Instagram and we were sold! She was the one for us. It was love at first sight. And now we'd love to introduce her to you.
Describe your attitude to working out:
I’ve never looked back and thought, “wow I regret that workout” so whether it be a quick 20 minute workout or a full 2 hour strength and cardio workout, it’s always worth the effort.
Your #1 fitness goal this year is…
I have found that over the past year I have neglected to spend sufficient time on stretching (big mistake). I did karate when I was younger and I would love to achieve that level of flexibility again (yes, Kit you have inspired me).
Favourite Black Milk Gym piece:
The Studio Long Sleeve Crop! Love it so much, Dem thumb holes… actually it’s not fair that I should be limited to just one favourite, top 10 would have been much more reasonable :P
What’s your “go to” healthy snack:
Protein smoothies! I just purchased a drink bottle blender from Kmart for $15. It’s awesome! 10/10 would recommend and am recommending... clearly. I use it to blend my protein powder after workouts and sometimes I add a banana or berries. Great snack, tastes amazing and so easy to make.

Best fitness advice anyone ever gave you:
My athletics coach would quote this during difficult training sessions or when I questioned my ability “You are only as strong as you allow yourself to be; never get discouraged, never give up because consistency and dedication is the key to success.” I apply this not only to fitness but to every day life. He also told me to stretch after every training session… My bad :P
