On her official website, Tammy Hembrow describes herself as a proud mother, entrepreneur, Gymshark athlete, and fitness mentor. That, however, does not tell someone what she has achieved so far. She is a passionate fitness guru and an Instagram sensation who has gained over 4.2 million followers on the photo sharing platform by documenting her 'fit pregnancy'. She documented her pregnancy and the weeks following her pregnancy to record her fitness regime while coming back to shape after giving birth to her child. A mother of two at the age of 22, she has documented both her pregnancies and fitness training after giving birth. She posts pictures of her amazingly fit body and shares with her fans her fitness goals. She has become so popular on Instagram that she has launched another private account on the site where she shares her full workouts and eating habits with her fans who buy access to that account. Her fame as a fitness mentor helped her get sponsored Instagram posts for Protein World and Teami Blends.
According to Tammy Hembrow, most women think that they can never regain their pre-pregnancy body once they get pregnant. She says that it is completely false, and if you cannot get back the same body, you can always make it better. Her fitness regime is a mix of clean diet and regular exercise. She trains 5 days a week and goes a bit easy on her diet on weekends, having 'cheat meals' in restaurants. After her fitness regime started to show its result on her body, she decided to share with everyone what she has learnt. She took it upon herself to motivate and inspire women to lead a healthy lifestyle. By documenting and posting her transformation on Instagram, she intends to show young women and mothers all over the world what can be achieved if they are consistent with their fitness schedule. Especially, she doesn't want women to give up working out after they have a baby.
During her pregnancy, Tammy Hembrow took pictures of her body at different times to compare those pictures with those taken after pregnancy. A couple months after having her daughter, she posted a few such images on her Instagram account to show how quickly she came back to shape after pregnancy. She also noted, "It's truly incredible what the human body can do". Even though most of her followers admired her, she also faced criticism from a section of her followers who refused to believe that the pictures were real, and blamed her for photoshopping the images. However, when Metro.co.uk asked Micka, a personal trainer at MM Fitness London, about her inputs, she said that it is perfectly possible for someone to achieve what Tammy has achieved, even though she doesn't recommend anyone to follow such a rigorous fitness regime just after giving birth.
Born on April 22 1994, Tammy Hembrow is half-Australian and half-Trinidadian by birth. She lives in Queensland, Australia with her fiancé Reece Hawkins, who is also her personal trainer. They have a son named Wolf and a daughter named Saskia. Growing up in rural Australia, Tammy decided to travel to countries like Malaysia and Switzerland to experience urban life. She later moved back to Australia and loves to spend time on the beach. She has four sisters and two brothers. Her sister Emilee Hembrow is also famous on Instagram.
Even though Tammy Hembrow was interested in sports as a child, she later gave in to bad habits and started to lead an unhealthy lifestyle as a teenager. She says that she "partied, drank, smoked, and did pretty much everything" that she should not have done. However, once she learnt about fitness and proper nutrition, she started working out regularly. She was amazed at how different she felt after starting to work out. She started her fitness journey and posted her progress on her Instagram account. She had a decent fan base on Instagram even before she became pregnant and started documenting her pregnancy through pictures. She decided to track her pregnancy on Instagram like some social media stars have done on YouTube or other platforms. She regularly posted pictures of her pregnant body and her workout details. By doing this, she has gained a large number of young women as followers, who look up to her as inspiration for getting the perfect body they want. She gradually became a sensation on Instagram and eventually turned the platform into a business. She is so popular on Instagram that she didn't move to other social media platforms for a long time even though her followers kept insisting. She also has a YouTube channel where she posts vlogs and fashion videos.
