A Jack-ette of all trades, Maddy King is also studying nutritional medicine and has just taken on a new and exciting role as an ambassador for KX Pilates – the cult reformer pilates brand by our resident pilates instructor Aaron Smith. We chatted to Maddy about all things health, fitness and what’s next for her!

My job as a model means that I.. 

Try to be healthy 80% of the time. I try to eat really well most of the time and exercise daily. I usually do 3 KX Pilates session a week and walk or go for a run, followed by a swim at the beach in summer.

My favourite holiday destination is ……. 

Definitely somewhere in Europe.. Probably Spain or the Almafi Coast in Italy.

No one knows that I can ……..



My ultimate stress reliever is ….

Going to the beach. I grew up at Balmoral Beach, NSW, so heading to the beach is my magical place to relax and unwind. 

When I’m not working I am  ….. 

Studying nutritional medicine.

It’s Saturday morning at 8am and you will find me …..

Finishing up at a KX Pilates class then usually meeting my boyfriend, Kris, to head to the beach or a great breakfast place


I got involved as an ambassador for KX Pilates ….. 

After a friend suggested I try out a class. I had previously done a pilates teaching course in the mat style and had always loved using the reformer machines. I became instantly hooked with KX’s style and luckily for me my love of pilates became something I can promote while truly believing in it.

My guilty pleasure is …. 

Messina Gelato and dumplings

If I could trade bodies with someone for 24 hours It would be…

Candice Swanepoel. For more than 24 hours too please 🙂

If I had to give up..

Eating meat I would be devastated. Sounds crazy but it’s true.


Before I go to bed ….

I take an organic greens powder. There are many great brands out there and I like to mix it up. I’m currently taking one from Sunfoods. I really notice the difference in my body and feel more energetic.

If I didn’t live in Sydney I would ……….

Be living in New York, working as a nutritionist and commercial model.
