Top model Lynn Kelly ‘thought she was fit’ until she vomited at the gym

Fitness is an integral part of former Miss Ireland Lynn Kelly’s daily regime, but a new workout pushed her to her limits.
The honed and toned model attended a session at Beau Jacks boxing gym and threw up due to the high intensity.
“It was an hour of pain, pure sweaty pain, but as weird as this may sound, I loved it,” Lynn told Independent Style.
The brunette beauty trains every day, sometimes twice a day if her schedule permits it.
“I would have thought I would be very fit but walking into Beau Jacks was a whole different kettle of fish,” Lynn admits.
“I had been warned before I went that Steve - the trainer - had reduced people to tears. As I walked through the gym doors, he came over and greeted me and told me he had ‘heard all about me and he was going to break me,’ I laughed it off, a rookie mistake!"
Lynn attended with her friend and fellow catwalk regular, Sarah Morrissey, who has been working out at Beau Jacks for two years.
“We went on a fresh Sunday morning, while most people are nursing their hangovers. Sarah is one of my fitness inspirations she trains so hard and I really admire her for that.”
While the gruelling class pushed Lynn to her limits, she was left on a high after it.
“In Beau Jacks there are no ‘girl’s versions’ of exercises, there are no excuses and there are no breaks. The vibe is great and everybody encourages each other.”
The Dublin model confessed she was not surprised that she vomitted after the intense one hour session of anaerobic strength training.
“It’s not the first time I have vomited while training and I am sure it won't be the last,” the dedicated fitness enthusiast said.
“I will push my body so hard that sometimes that happens. It’s no big deal and I just get stuck straight back in.”
Lynn, who won Miss Ireland in 2008, keeps her figure defined thanks to daily gym sessions, TRX workouts at Dublin Fit Club, and a mix of reformer pilates and ballet barre classes at FormSchool, the studio ran by Aoife Cogan and Gordon D’Arcy.
“I am always up for a challenge and believe if it doesnt challenge you, it doesn't change you.
Lynn was previously subjected to cruel comments about her weight after she uploaded a selfie backstage at a lingerie show, but she refused to bow down to online bullies.
“It is no secret that I need to work very very hard for my body, I am not naturally a slim girl. It’s not genetics its pure hard work and dedication.
“No, I dont always enjoy it, but I just suck it up and get on with it. You will never leave a training session feeling worse then you went in.”
