Sophie Gray got more than she bargained for when she set out to forge her place in the modelling industry and came back with restrictive eating habits and a workout timetable that bordered on obsessive.

A quick life reset and this holistic nutritionist and personal trainer now inspires others to live happily and healthily with her personal workout plans, colourful recipes on Way of Gray and more than one laughing-fruit-selfie.


Her career

“Believe it or not, I’m actually not crazily into fitness. I work out because I know it’s good for my body and that’s exactly why I chose to pursue a career in healthy living – I felt like the industry was making it seem like you had to be all or nothing, all the time. I wanted to show women that you can be more casual about fitness, have fun and still see incredible results.”

Her fitness regime

“I work out no more than four days a week, for about 45 minutes at a time. I do bodyweight exercises focusing on full body movement. I love training my core and getting my heart rate up. I also attend yoga classes as often as possible.”

Her nutrition

“I absolutely love food and eat an abundance of fresh, natural foods every day. I love acai berry bowls, smoothies and raw chocolate. Sandwiches are also a favourite of mine. I never count calories.”

Behind the scenes

“When I first got started, I was obsessed with my legs looking a certain way. I have always played sports and so my legs are/were muscular. I didn’t understand that you can lose weight, but you can’t change your body’s natural shape.

“The one thing I like to make clear through my Instagram is that I cry just like everyone else. The smile you see through my channel is genuine, but I also have my down days – days where all I want to do is sit on the couch, eat cookies and cry. I think these days are necessary to enjoying the good ones.”
