career in modelling.
Brooke Holladay Ence is a fitness model, and a CrossFit athlete from California U.S. She started her fitness journey as a professional dancer in her youth.
Brooke first tasted fame in 2015, after qualifying for the 2015 CrossFit Games. As an outsider, she astonished the crowd that year with two first-place titles in the Clean and Jerk, and Snatch Speed Ladder; finishing 14th overall.
From that point on, Brooke’s rise in the CrossFit and the fitness world began. She started competing at the Games annually, finishing in 3rd place at the 2016 CrossFit California Regionals. Brooke also became a trainer in one of the CrossFit gyms in “The Golden State”. She is also a sought-after fitness model with her own apparel company.
WORK, REST & PLAY
Brooke trains between 3-6 hours each day, several days a week.
To recover from her long and intense training sessions, Brooke dedicates a couple of days each week away from any strenuous physical activity. Her recovery methods include getting more sleep, and spending time outdoors in the sun, where she usually naps.
She is quoted as saying: “Rest days always seem so far away and then they pass by so fast. My body loves a nice Sunday; sleeping in, brunch with friends, sweatpants, TV, online shopping… I could go on and on but I will spare you.”
As a CrossFitter, Brooke's diet compared to some of her fellow competitors. Instead of following the standard paleo diet, she incorporates a high protein, low carb, and moderate fat diet; with grains being one of its components.
Even though Brooke knows gluten-free approach may be more efficient for a CrossFit athlete, she prefers having grains, and a little bit of gluten in her diet because it gives her more
energy and boosts her mood.
