‘History-making’ Hah vows Ninja return

ANDREA Hah has vowed to return to Australian Ninja Warrior and is already in training to take out the title.

After making history as the first woman to make it up the Warped Wall, Hah told News Corporation Australia tackling the formidable obstacle course again next year would be "fun".

To prepare herself, she is incorporating 2am training sessions to align with the show's night-time shooting schedule, which sees ninjas attempt the course anytime between 8pm and 2am.

"Your body performs best when it's used to performing," said Hah, 30. "So, if you've got a race at 6am then you should be training for it at 6am."

Year-round the Blue Mountains physiotherapist spends three days per week outdoor rock climbing and an additional four hours on indoor courses. She also does weight and strength training at the climbing gym she owns with her boyfriend, fellow Ninja Warrior Lee Cossey, 34.

However, the former gymnast won't be going on any extreme diets or downing protein shakes to bulk up. "I'm not a fan of being really strict. I think everything in moderation," she said.

An average day for Hah begins with eating an egg on toast. Morning tea will consist of yoghurt and muesli, while lunch is most often a toasted vegetable sandwich. For afternoon tea she'll eat nuts or hummus on crackers, and dinner will usually be a vegetable and noodle stir fry or vegetable curry with rice.

For environmental reasons, both Hah and Cossey limit their consumption of meat to once a week and refuse to cook it in the house.

Alcohol is kept to a minimum, and in an admission sure to make dieters weep, Hah revealed her washboard abs and athletic figure is the result of a frequently indulged sweet-tooth. "I eat chocolate every night," she said.

Australian Ninja Warrior airs 7pm Monday and Tuesday on Nine
