My recent interview with Jamie from Jaymes Blog


After spending time travelling with beautiful Dominique in the USA, she is really dedicated to eating healthy and maintaining her amazing bikini body. It wouldn’t matter where we were or who we were with, there was always time to find a healthy meal without ever missing one. America being the place to party and with a lot of fatty processed food, it’s not always easy to stay motivated whilst travelling. We would be constantly shooting in bikini’s at beautiful locations through LA and Mexico.
She was always looking amazing, from her toned figure, glowing skin and beachy waves, how can she possibly stay bikini ready whilst travelling?  Dominique being a personal trainer, selling training and nutrition programs, was constantly motivating others on her social media as well as everyone around her; I’ve taken some great tips home with me from Dominique and wanted to share with you all her secrets!  So I’ve asked her a couple of questions to figure out how she does it.
How do you keep yourself always motivated to work out?
I love the feeling of being fit and healthy, that in itself motivates me. Results also keep me extremely motivated, I love keeping my body in shape and being lean and toned all year round. Watching other people achieve their goals and being able to help them achieve them is also one of the most rewarding feelings that is a constant motivation.
What does your regular everyday diet generally consist of whilst travelling?
I eat a lot of healthy, clean foods and believe everything is okay in moderation! I wouldn’t say I diet, I just stick to clean eating: I’ve put together a nutritional program on my website which outlines what I usually stick by and what I recommend for my clients. My motto is if you can’t catch it, kill it or grow it then don’t eat it! Simple really, read the ingredients also and if you can’t understand something then don’t it eat!
Sugar is also a huge factor in losing weight, lose the sugar and watch the weight drop. I can speak all day about my hate of sugar!
Do you have a set fitness routine when travelling?
I try and keep active wherever I go when travelling and explore wherever I am. Which means I am always walking, this is great cardio whilst you are away and such a better way to do cardio then on a treadmill. When I can find a gym within a hotel, I use my ultimate fat loss program which is perfect for travelling.

What healthy eating tips can you give girls for when they are travelling?
I would say enjoy your holiday because you’re on a holiday and the food you come across is amazing! However there are simple tips you can stick by that WILL make a difference.
When drinking, try and have low sugar drinks ( a lot of places will happily use no sugar with their cocktails, or use only a little bit ). Always have dressings on the side, many countries like to drown their food in sauces. Have it on the side so you can control how much you are putting on and try stay away from the creamy sauces.
What are your best kept beauty secrets?
Drinking Plenty of water and green juices, hydrate your body and fuel yourself with plenty of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. Your skin, hair, nails and body will thank you.

How do you keep those abs of yours?
I have an amazing ab workout that I use on myself and my clients; which consists of strength, Pilates movements and core stabilization.
My best tip would be to always keep a tight core, be conscious of tensing your muscles in your core. Its a simple movement that will, in time lead to a tighter and toned tummy.
What’s your favourite meal and why?
My favourite meal is breakfast, it sets the standard for the day. If you start the day healthy and clean you will continue to follow that consistency throughout the day.
dominique le toullec
How often do you indulge? And If you find yourself wanting to indulge, do you have any tricks on how to stop yourself?
I love to indulge, I believe you have to eat everything in moderation. If you feel likes chocolate, then have it! We live one life, and restricting yourself for the rest of your life just doesn’t make sense, and lets be honest you will fail at that. If you allow yourself to indulge, be smart about it and it can work with the rest of your nutrition plan.
My tip is, when you indulge try and go for the cleaner/healthy option i.e. instead of milk chocolate have dark chocolate, make your own healthy pizza’s at home, there are so many ways of making your naughty foods healthy!
What’s your healthy alternative when drinking out with the girls?
I am not a big drinker myself but if I do drink its red wine. My trick with that is that you can’t have so much of it so your consuming less alcohol. When I go out I usually have a vodka soda fresh lime and drink plenty of water in between drinks. This keeps me hydrated and also helps with having a drink in your hand when everyone else is drinking :)
if you’re a cocktail girl, just ask for your cocktails with  no/little sugar and no sugar syrup. Cocktails can be made healthy.
dominique le toullec
What is your vision for the fitness industry and where do you see yourself in it?
The fitness industry is expanding at a rapid rate, I hope to be a lead influencer for living a happy and healthy life. I hope that people will accept one another and learn to help people instead of putting them down. The fitness industry is an industry to bring positivity and happiness to people, it is where people are changing their lives!
I love helping people on a daily basis, I get to do what I love everyday and call it my job. I am hoping to bring more updated international/ National programs to people by the end of 2015.
What is the difference between clients who get great results and the ones who don’t?
Dedication. You have to want it yourself to be able to achieve it. I try to encourage my client’s in every aspect of their training and nutrition so they are learning along the way. Once a client understands what things are working and not working for them, they start to see the positive changes and their dedication increases. You have to want to improve your lifestyle, not your parents or partner telling you to. It has to be YOU that wants it first, the rest will follow. Just give yourself time to get to a new process.

What to do when you have LITTLE motivation...but want the results

Sometimes when you sit on a cross trainer or a bike for too long you will really begin to dread going to the gym. Me personally I train in parks, in gyms, at friends houses, on the beach and even in hotel rooms when I'm on the go.

You do not need a million weights to be a strong buff guy and you do not need 30 different type of cardio equipment to be a little hot chick.

All you need to do is understand the science behind movement and intensity.
To make that sound more simple doing the right movements under repetition varied with different intensity methods.

I want to be able to be a trainer that can educate my clients so they can become trainers for them selves, sounds silly but after you experience training people who enjoy training themselves and want to take their training to the next level it becomes extremely rewarding! I love helping people change their lives for the better, for me what I do isn't work it's something I absolutely love and thats why I communicate this through all my social media channel.

So what is a great way of training, that will guarantee results! Here is an example of what I do :)

Functional Movement 
Is movement we do every day that is RIGHT for the mechanics of our bodies, remember we are all not top level cross fitters or gymnasts some of us just want to move well with out pain and be able to do it easily.

Intensity - This can be measured by TIME, REPETITION, SPEED of the actual movement and LOAD which can be adding extra weight on top of your body weight.

Here is a basic functional workout that I do every now and then:

1. Basic deep body weight squats
2. Alternating reverse lunges
3. Squat Jumps
4. Skipping alternating legs

Now I add in intensity which in this case will be TIME.
45 seconds on each exercise, 15 seconds rest between exercises and we will do 4 rounds!
Thats 16 minutes of pretty solid movement with the biggest muscles in the body, doesn't matter who you are if you go hard you will feel this little circuit.

Sounds pretty basic and easy but have a go then let me know just how easy that was. We smashed the legs, used plyometric movement patterns (JUMPS) and we did functional movement that is the exact movement that you do everyday and that your body is designed to do. Plus all of these involved your core extremities so... not a bad little session?!

Happy training everyone!

My personal favourites for all things health, beauty and fitness

To have good skin health is extremely important for total health. Your skin is your body's largest organ, and virtually the only organ that you can watch. This post is to share with you whats works for my skin and what products I cannot live without to keep myself healthy inside and out!

Being a personal trainer I really do not like to wear much make up, but it is always good to have something to freshen up your skin and I discovered this BB Cream from Noire that always gives me a very natural no make up look. What you put on your skin is just as important as what goes into your mouth. I get people asking me daily what I do to stay healthy not only on the inside but on the outside too, so I thought using my blog would be the best channel to communicate all my little tips, trick and secrets!

I use a light tinted moisturiser called Noire BB Cream. 
This little baby is a hydrating tinted moisturiser with skin protection (perfect for those who work outdoors, like myself) and a sheer coverage that also helps prevent premature ageing. I love to look natural and have a 'no make up' look and this is just perfect for that! This is available in 3 shades. Light, Medium, Dark

Noire is my go to place for when I need to get my make up done, the beautiful ladies here do my make up for all my events. You can simply book in to see them in store, or if your overseas they now have an online store, Ive organised discounts for all my followers, all you need to do is put in #NOIREDOM to receive your discount. 
At night, the studio is available for tailored makeup classes for hen’s parties, birthdays or just a group of friends wanting to do something unique and life changing. They can even arrange limousine pickup and return, canap├ęs and champagne! Pretty special!
What I am wearing in this look is listed below, all products from (For discounts use the code #NOIREDOM)
Fur vest
Sin city

Hi def foundation
Dual powder
Sultry blush
Flirt cream hi lites
Sunkissed bronzer

Love lip liner
See thru lipstick

My amazing Salon TWO-SIX-SIX always pamper my hair with the absolute best treatments! I get my hair done with these guys for all my events and some of the modelling shoots I do (photo below, hair done by Shea at Salon two). 
These guys are super stars at creating volume, and their extensions will allow you to have healthy long locks. They are also about to launch their new range of extensions from Russia that are double drawns which I will be getting very soon, so stay tuned on instagram @dominiqueletoullec for my posts on how they are :)
As a model my hair is constantly under the pressure of blow dries, different products and a lot of stress so its just as important to ensure my hair is being taken care of as well. Having salon treatments does absolute wonders for my hair and I highly recommend this for beautiful silky healthy hair. One of my favourite products to use daily is Moroccan Oil. 
Go to the below link for everything my salon offers 

I have been using the skincare range from the ladies at NOIRE all products are all botanical based products, allergy tested, paraben and fragrance free and formulated. Will leave you skin feeling fresh and not stripped!
I use the following:
Wash - chamomile facial wash
Tone - botanical firming toner
Firm - firming face & eye serum
Hydrate- hydrating mango face cream
Exfoliate - mint exfoliating facial polish
Mask- mineral mud mask

You can buy any of these products via this link and you can receive a discount by using the code #NOIREDOM and in store just mention my name for discounts. 

I use my healthy eating plan that I have created for all my ultimate fat loss clients. This keeps me full, with plenty of energy every day! I also train 3-4 times a week combining functional training (strength and cardio). I also ensure I'm drinking 2 litres of water everyday. Having a glass of water just before you eat can also help with portion control as your tummy will feel full already. 
I also love green tea!
Green tea assists in keeping your metabolism working at a healthy rate, provides fiber, and by having lower cholesterol, it increases muscle strength. With green tea assisting in the metabolic rate, you have more energy and hoard less fat which contributes to your overall health and fitness... and it fights aging - who doesn't like that? 
The program I use weekly is my own ultimate fat loss program which is designed at woman and men and helping them achieve fat loss in the most accurate way.
Helping people means the world to me and because I know how to achieve ultimate fat loss better than anything its easy for me to put together programs that I KNOW work because everything is tested on myself ;)
What are in my programs?
6 week training program of strength and cardio exercises
My tips and secrets to get to where you want to be
And my full nutrition pack

- 10 day eating program, comprehensive layout of food to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks each day (each day is different - loads of options)

Online nutrition help for our followers

This blog post is specifically to answer all the emails we both get asking us what the best foods are to eat to loose weight and slim down the healthy way. 
We are both passionate about this subject and truly believe you are what you eat and what you are eating is ultimately going to affect the results you get from your training.

There is one rule in which I live by and it has served me so well and always will, Clean Eating!
When it comes to groceries shopping I walk into the super market and literally do a lap around the outside... WHY you may be asking?!?!
Thats where all the Veg, Fruit, Meat, Nut and Berries can be found. The GOOD stuff!
Down most of the isles is the processed products, the stuff that man has tampered with and therefore has a little things in them that contain the exact thing we don't want or need in our bodies. Its the stuff that can keep stubborn fat inside its cells, sugar levels high, insulin spikes in our blood and increase risk of diseases and sickness.
Even the "No Fat" "No Sugar" products even still find a way to chuck in things into there products and although it sounds like its amazing "low fat bars" - yeah no fat, but plenty of glucose, fructose and unnatural sweeteners that are even more detrimental to us all! 

That is why all our Nutrition within our programs is all based around food that is CLEAN! 
If we eat food thats fresh and clean it can stimulate the body to produce hormones which will tap into stubborn fat and   make us feel healthier within our bodies and that turns into Healthy with in our minds!

In our 6 week nutrition pack we have tips, tricks, recipe links and plenty of meal ideas
The meal plan is designed to match your fitness goals and is based on our knowledge on nutrition and what works best for certain body types. Depending on what your goals are, this plan will help you:
  • Lose weight
  • Tone muscle
  • Reduce body fat
  • Build lean muscle
  • Feel more energetic
  • Be more organized and prepared
  • Save money
  • Achieve your goal body!
To get started on the RIGHT nutrition program head over to either of our websites (both nutrition programs are the same so either website link is cool to go to) simply click on either of these links, download and you can get started today :)

Quality supplements, what we recommend!

How many supplements have I tried during my professional Career?
I can safely say I've sampled nearly every brand and every type of new "amazing" "miracle" supplement brought out on the market. The reason I do this is because I want to be able to give my clients the right info.

I know that not every supplement works with every person the same, very similar to the fact not every food has the same effect on every person. Everyone is different! This includes how individual bodies react to supplements as well.

Recently my views on supplements has been changed for the better and I felt it was my duty to bring this company to everyone's attention. Not only has it helped me achieve the results I have been working hard for but it has helped my clients achieve their results faster than normal!

Punish Nutrition has a huge range of products, and what I personally love the most is that they stand by the fact that what is on their label is in their products. 
Punish nutrition specialise in high quality proteins and amino acids and quality proteins and amino acids and manufactures products using only pure and natural ingredients.
I finally feel confident in a product and have full trust in what they say is what they deliver.

Supplementation is basically a quick + fast alternative if you can't get all the goodness you'd usually get from optimal nutrition from clean health organic food.

Only thing is that we do not eat enough of the right foods and we don't eat them at the correct times due to busy lives, work, kids etc So that is why supplements are important for achieving your results.

So are supplements essential for peak performance in every day life? Yes, I Believe so!

How easy is it for the hard working Aussie mum to pre plan her meals and cook her own nutrition packed meals for the correct daily supply of protein, multi vitamins, correct carbohydrates?
Its pretty much impossible.
Same goes for the 7am - 5pm labourer, you think he has time to pre pack every meal and keep it on his job site? No way!

Ive recently been shipped a broad amount of products from 'Punish Nutrition' that covers all the bases i need as an active male and for every female out there that wants to keep away from the negative add ins, artificial and nasty unnatural crap but want to be active and healthy when they can't find the time for a nutrition filled meal!

Hope this blog post has helped you guys. Dom and I get a tone of emails on what supplements we use and recommend so we thought it only fitting for my first blog post to be on supplements :) 

Ok so now the great news!
I have organised big discounts for all my followers for these particular supplements. 
To receive a discount you'll have to get in contact with me directly via my website contact page - link here the reason I want you to contact me directly is so I can get to know you and give you my advice on what supplements will best suit YOU!
