Ms Stafford-Jones won the fitness and bikini sections at the national titles.

She also finished second in the bikini model category at the 2013 International Bodybuilding world championships, also held in the Czech Republic.

The fitness model moved to Australia in 2002 to work as a physiotherapist, and soon became more involved in health and fitness.

‘Being in Australia, the weather is great for exercising and being outdoors,’ she said.

‘Through contacts in Perth, I met some people who run fitness and bodybuilding competitions and I became involved in those, which led to being a fitness model. When I’m not doing competitions, I usually train three or four times a week.

‘But it’s quite different when I’m preparing for a competition and I train every day.

‘There is a lot of non-structured exercise as well, including walking with my four-legged best friend Rex, my dog. My work also keeps me very active.’

Ms Stafford-Jones worked as a physiotherapist at the Hopman Cup and said she was committed to helping people

‘That extends beyond my physiotherapy clinic to ensure people make the most of every opportunity presented to them,’ she said. ‘I also specialise in ‘pink pilates’ as part of my physio career, which is a program that helps cancer patients regain their fitness.’
