As part of our Confidence Project and commitment to health and wellbeing, we put a call out way back in September to find a body-confident WF reader to put on the cover of our magazine! And that wasn’t all – the winner would win some epic prizes. She’d become not only an ambassador for Women’s Fitness, but for GapFit too AKA your new fave activewear range.

Well, we found our girl – say hello to 22-year-old Bec Tippett, our first ever cover star winner!

Here’s how she thought her first photo shoot (at Sydney’s beautiful Clovelly beach) went…

“On set and throughout I felt so comfortable and still somewhat in disbelief that I was doing a photo shoot on a popular beach in Sydney to be on the cover of my favourite magazine. I was so excited and had so much fun!

“It was exactly what I pictured a photo shoot to be like. I didn’t realise the organisation that goes into these shoots and how each person plays such a vital role in trying to get the right photo.

“The hardest part was trying to make sure my body was in the positions that the photographer wanted me in. It was a lot harder than it seemed so I had to work with my body whilst listening to the instructions.”

Here’s a little behind-the-scenes sneak peek:
