Top model Thalia hires personal trainer
She has been tipped as Ireland's next supermodel, and boasts a naturally slender figure, but Dublin teen Thalia Heffernan is the latest model to be swept up by the fitness craze.
The 19-year-old has teamed up with a well-known personal trainer as she works on her assault on the international modelling scene.
The Ranelagh native, who will jet out to Germany and Liverpool for work in the comings week, is being pushed to her limits by trainer Sophie Kavanagh at No.17 gym -- the woman behind Holly Carpenter's sculpted figure.
"I'm really busy at the moment so the gym is great for keeping my energy levels up," Thalia told the Herald.
"I have been training with Sophie who is amazing."
The model, who was snapped up by world famous agency Ford last November, has been hard at work in the gym since returning from the Big Apple as she sets her sights on conquering European modelling.
