The 43-year-old claims she has never been in better shape!
Ada Nicodemou hasn’t won the coveted Dancing With The Stars Mirror Ball award since season three of the reality TV show in 2005, which was 16 years ago.
Although the star of Home And Away says she has no desire to win the All Stars competition, she admits that returning to the ballroom has reignited her passion for dance.
However, Ada revealed that joining the show came at a cost, as she had to work seven days a week for seven weeks while balancing her job as Leah on Home And Away with her intensive dance rehearsals, all while raising her young son Johnas.
Her long-term partner Adam Rigby stepped in to care for her eight-year-old son Johnas, whom she shares with her ex-husband Chrys Xipolitas.
“I was in the makeup chair until 6 a.m. the next day for Home And Away, and I was there until midnight for some of the Dancing tapes. It was nuts, but I got through it and had a wonderful time dancing. And I’m much more ecstatic because there’s an audience and I get to perform “The single mother mulls through her options.
Ada had a decent baseline level of fitness as a natural workout junkie, which meant she became “hyper fit” during the gruelling rehearsals with her dance partner Aric Yegudkin.
“I’m still in good shape. I enjoy working out and eating well, and when you combine that with hours of dancing, you get extra fit! That’s a ridiculous amount of cardio “She informs us.
She quickly realised, however, that sticking to her daily workout routine was not a good idea.
“You’ve got to stop doing the weight training because you’re not going to be able to get the kicks in the jive,” my dance partner, Aric, said.
While the show has ended, the actress claims that it has encouraged her to integrate dancing into her daily workouts.
“I’d like to get back into dancing. It’s motivated me to enrol in some dance lessons and keep going. I’ve kept my dancing shoes and would like to take a ballroom lesson or even just do some drop-in lessons at the Sydney Dance Company.”
“We’re all bored of the same routine. Dancing is a lot of fun if you change it up a little. How do you not dance as soon as any music starts playing?”
“I’d like to get back into dancing. It’s motivated me to enrol in some dance lessons and keep going.”
Aside from dance lessons, the famous soap star says that variety in her workouts is crucial to staying motivated.
“I prefer to work out four times a week. So, realistically, two of those days will be early morning weight-lifting sessions “She clarifies.
