Healthy HumanN Series: Monica Brant

by: Monica Brant

Closing out our Healthy HumanN series for Women’s Health Month, we’re highlighting our incredible female athlete, Monica Brant. As a Fitness Olympia Champion, Monica knows the ins and outs of the health and wellness world.

Q: At what age did you start getting serious about health and wellness?

A: I have been an athlete my entire life and have always been serious about my competitions. At age 7, I started competing in equestrian events and water skiing with a successful try-out for the SeaWorld Ski Team. Starting in 6th grade, I participated in track, volleyball and cross country. By age 20, I was learning about fitness competitions and competed in my very 1st event the same year which intrigued me enough to continue competing internationally in a variety of physique shows for 26 years. My last big win was in Birmingham, UK, one week prior to my 46th birthday!


Q: What is one thing you wish you knew about women’s health when you were younger?

A: When I was younger, I would have appreciated understanding the benefits of ‘fasting’ and a ‘Keto’ type lifestyle, which I’ve currently implemented into my day to day. With these changes, I have enjoyed many benefits from controlled hunger and the hormonal effects of food.

Q: What does health mean to you?

A: Health to me is extremely important. A strengthened spirit, body, mind and soul are vital to existence. Striving daily to maintain ‘exceptional health’ in all areas of life allows for a better quality of life! Exceptional health brings radiance to one’s life. A life that is radiant is glowing with vitality, extra energy, boosted mood, creativity, enthusiasm for life and dare I say, hope for the future! On the contrary, bad health can zap all energy, enthusiasm, and vitality, and create depression and disease.

Q: What areas of your health are you focusing on right now?

A: At the present time, I am focusing on building strength with a ‘bodyweight only’ exercise program that includes postural and corrective exercises as well as glute activation and overall body conditioning.

I am hosting these sessions online, LIVE, for clients and fans to join me 2x/week where I coach and actually go through the session while coaching. I pair these sessions with 2-3 weighted and sprint sessions.
Nutritionally I have been implementing a fasting window 4-5 days a week. Of course, without fail, every morning prior to any other supplement or nutritional product, I take Neo40. And later in the day, for an afternoon boost, I enjoy SuperBeets. If I am focusing on a sprint or distance run coupled with weights, I will use a serving of BeetElite.
Lastly, I’m addicted to my ‘green tea/fats/Collagen Peptides Plus Whey’ mixture, and typically have it every day during my ‘feeding’ window! Yum!

Professionally, Monica has achieved a lot in her career. One of her proudest accomplishments was making a comeback to Master's track after 25 years of not sprinting competitively, and not only qualifying for the 400m Women's Invitational at the Olympic Trails, but also coming in 3rd overall with a time of 59.76! Her best high school time was 57 back in 1987! Personally, Monica's proudest accomplishment is becoming a GodMom to three amazing children.
