Muay Thai Fighter and Fitness Model Chontel Hau Talks With TheAthleticBuild.com

(Last Updated On: April 14, 2017)

Tell us about your athletic background

I have always been involved in sports since a young age & also modeled since I was 14yrs. Throughout school I was age champion for Track n Field, excelling in sprints 100m/200m, High Jump & Long Jump. I was always involved in some kind of team sport such as Basketball, Rugby League, Volleyball, Netball & Touch Football. Then around 16-17 I began Weight Lifting & Boxing, after i completed high school I only ever did Gym & what ever fitness class was being held at that time but this is where I lost most of my motivation for training until around 2009 where i stumbled across the sport Muay Thai Kickboxing which caught my attention & a found myself quickly becoming obsessed with the style of training loving all that was to do with this sport. When I got to my peek fitness level the next step was to get stronger without slowing down or increasing too heavily in muscle mass. I completed my studies & found a method of weight training that built incredible strength without gaining too much mass so still benefitting my Muay Thai Fitness obsession. With this came a new healthy fit physique that led me to be encouraged to compete in a number of Body Sculpting Competitions. I never really fit in to a category for Body Sculpting so therefore I was never receiving call outs & most certainly never placed, as I would be too lean for Bikini yet not big enough for figure, then a federation called INBA introduced a Fitness Category which was smack bang in the middle of Bikini & Figure. I entered their comp first year of them introducing the category & was place 1st, something that I will always remember & cherish.
