Meet the team
Penny Carroll, Editor
Your fitness passion? Yoga, dance workouts and anything outdoors. I love fitness that feels like fun, like hiking, dancing or cruising the neighbourhood on my vintage bike.
What gets you through a busy day? Endless cups of tea, and the promise of a dip in the ocean at the end of it!
Your idea of a happy meal? A cheese platter. Preferably for one.

Cynthia Lau, Graphic Designer
Your fitness passion? My current fitness interest is smashing in badminton. Playing with a group of profesh friends really works up a sweat!
What gets you through a busy day? A mix of upbeat tunes through my AirPods – it really blocks out the world when I’m in the zone. Please tap my shoulder for attention!
Your idea of a happy meal? Definitely a generous portion of salmon and scallop sashimi served with a glass of umeshu chilled on ice.

Jess Pecoraro, Fashion Editor
Your fitness passion? After doing a 30-day yoga challenge I’m now obsessed. I just love seeing how my body can do things I never thought it could.
Biggest #firstworldproblem? When a cafe runs out of my favourite thing on the menu.
What’s your idea of a happy meal? Fresh sourdough bread with avocado, or Nutella with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Constantina Demos, Beauty Writer
Your fitness passion? Sweating it out in a Les Mills Body Attack class. It’s like dancing around your room to remixed 80s songs, but with a couple (hundred) squats and lunges thrown into the mix.
What gets you through a busy day? Coffee, coffee, coffee. And any Taylor Swift song. Yes, even her early country tunes #noshame.
Your idea of a happy meal? Anything cooked by someone else. Cooking is the bane of my existence.

Odette Barry, Digital Content Manager
Your fitness passion? Anything sweaty with a pal. I’m not a lone ranger with exercise, in fact I completely suck at motivating myself to do anything on my own. I absolutely love my morning bootcamp with a squad of beautiful babes.
What gets you through a busy day? Starting my day at the beach with my doggo. Oh and working with said doggo at my feet. I feel pretty lucky to have a gig that allows me to do what I love in the company of the dog that I love…more talking about dogs?
Your idea of a happy meal? Look I’ll be the first to say that just about all food is good food – I’m not a purist. I’ll take just about anything fresh and tasty (except ice cream and pizza – cannot.stand.com). I love me a colourful salad and anything Thai, Vietnamese or Indian.

Tess Mol, Digital Coordinator
Your fitness passion? Anything that get’s me sweaty, I’m not picky! I love anything from a hard strength-training gym sesh to a long run, a HIIT session to boxing, dancing to hiking, surfing to yoga – you name it, I’m there.
What gets you through a busy day? An early morning workout, some fresh air and beach time, the A1 hip-hop playlist on Spotify, lots and lots (and lots) of coffee… and the knowledge that I have food to look forward to every few hours.
Your idea of a happy meal? A big roasted veggie salad, with cherry tomatoes (crack), tahini dressing (the best thing ever) and tofu (bae), or an epic Indian meal cooked by my fiancé’s Mumma.

Carla D’Agrosa, National Advertising Manager
Your fitness passion? It used to be netball, now it’s swimming!
What gets you through a busy day? Structure, and looking forward to lunch.
Your idea of a happy meal? My idea of a happy meal would be any meal at Glass restaurant with my husband and daughter, looking out at the water and boats, surrounded by fairy lights and yummy food and wine.
