Last season turned out to be noteworthy for Lady Eagle Amy Ahomiro, who emerged Finals MVP. Before that, however, was a different story: She had to sit out in many of the games in her first years in the league mainly because she frequently suffered ACL injuries. But after helping boost the squad last semester fully marking her presence on the squad, she quickly catapulted to being a crowd favorite.
We recently followed Amy at her Chalk magazine cover shoot. As the New Zealand-hailing volleybelle slipped into her workout gear, following the women-in-training-inspired theme of the shoot, we couldn’t help but notice her body. Amy already has the looks and height, but you know the sexy that’s like the strong, toned, damsel-that-needs-no-saving kind? That’s her. Seeing her in full form—flexing and all—gave us the chills that it's almost intimidating. Think the Williams sisters, who also happen to be her #lifepegs.
Let’s take some time and just appreciate God’s gift to mankind that is Amy Ahomiro. (Read on and also learn some of her life and fitness hacks!)
Amy on keeping in fantastic shape. "Detoxify with delicious lemon water. You have to really want to do it. Because if you don’t want to do it, no one can force you to get out of the bed and run. So just be willing to put in the work talaga.”
Amy on taking care of herself: “Three things. We sweat a lot so it’s important that I wash our faces before and after training. I always wash my hands; even if I’m not aware, your hands always touch your face. Be conscious about being clean all the time.”
Amy on her sense of style off the court: "A hoodie, a pair of shorts, and sneakers. I’m super chill so I like comfortable stuff."
Amy on her sports idols, Venus and Serena Williams: “I really admire them. They really started from the bottom and they worked super hard to be where they are now."
