We have just entered into another one of Australia’s finest summers and what better way to kick start this summer by talking to the girl who has summer wrapped up in all things health, beauty and fashion. Bianca Cheah knows how to put the C in cool. Not only has she been an accomplished commercial model for 10 years she is also a designer and health guru which has seen her blog, Sporteluxe, become a common destination for health nut’s just like her. GC Mag caught up with the beach gal and here is what she had to say:
If you could summarise your life in three words what would they be?
Health, style and fitness
Tell us about your model background?
I’ve been a commercial model since I was 20-years-old. Modelling has seen me do some fantastic jobs, but at the end of the day it’s just a job. It’s really important to not take anything to heart and just be yourself. And most importantly look after yourself!
You seem to be the ultimate beach gal, what about the beach and summer do you love most?
I grew up on the beaches of South Gold Coast, and going to the beach for me was always second nature. The beach reminds me of home, being free and my family.
Finish this sentence: Summer is…?
Sipping on a fresh chilled Coconut, snacking on frozen blueberries and hitting the beach!
How did SPORTELUXE come about and how did you come up with the name?
Sporteluxe naturally came about because I’ve always had a passion for health and fitness. I’ve always been super healthy and fit growing up, so starting Sporteluxe was only natural for me. I wanted to create a lifestyle destination that would inspire people to live a healthier and stylish active life.

What must-have products would you recommend our readers invest in for the summer?
For fitness, I would most definitely say a Nike Sports Watch as it tracks the calories burned, distance, speed and heart rate. For hair, you can’t go past the Morroccanoil hydration mask. I can’t live without this. Lastly for your face, it has got to be the Banana Smoothie Mixstix lip balm by Chapsticks.
What are your tips to surviving the summer?
Hydrate, Hydrate, hydrate and slap on a 50+ sunscreen.
Who are some of the people that you look up to in life?
My fiancée, because he has always been my number one fan and supporter.
What are some of your guilty pleasures?
Like everyone I love a good chocolate feast, especially those Caramello Koala’s.
What can we expect to see from you next year?
Lots of website videos!
