Jama has a busy schedule, which can make it difficult to squeeze in a workout. However, she makes sure to get her exercise in when she can. She tells Women's Health, "It's difficult with the job I have – I can't schedule workouts in advance, I have to grab them when I can, so I want to use that training time wisely."

"I love my bum, so we tend to concentrate on that – lots of nice deep squats," she says. Jama also revealed to that she's been doing squats for a long time. "I love feeling strong, but I'm not naturally like that. From an early age I'd be trying to use my mum's weight to do deep squats and build bigger legs."


She Varies Up Her Workouts

Jama tells that she doesn't have a specific fitness routine that she goes to everyday. "I'm a go with the flow kind of person," she says. Jama has a lot of favorites, saying, "Every morning I put good music on and dance around my bedroom or run up and down the stairs. I've found wearing ankle weights really useful, putting on thick socks and weights while I do my daily activities for some extra resistance. And I've got a bike in front of my TV so I can jump on that when I'm watching something."


She's A Fan of Circuits

You've got your health, a nice job, you're not starving, your family's healthy, blah blah blah," she says to Women's Health. "I pray quite often. A little prayer in the morning, one at night. I mean, not every day, but when I can." Jama has credited her faith with helping her stay on the right track.
