A bit about Turia Pitt
Turia Pitt has a double degree in Mining, Engineering and Science and graduated with first class honours. She worked as a model before landing a job with Rio Tinto at their prestigious Argyle Diamond Mine. Her life was turned upside-down when she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100-kilometre marathon in September 2011, and suffered burns to over 65 per cent of her body.
Turia has bounced back bigger than ever and has been awarded the 2014 NSW Premier’s Woman of the Year. She is currently training for three events: the 20km Lake Argyle Swim, the Variety Cycle from Sydney to Uluru and a section of the Great Wall of China.
I love the Almond Protein Hit after a workout and I always keep some Spirulina and Ginseng Defence Boost handy when travelling – Turia Pitt.
