Former Biggest Loser trainer Tiffiny Hall might be well-known for her rock-hard abs and 25 kilogram weight loss post giving birth.
But what many have failed to notice is just how good her 61-year-old mother looks too.
Mother-of-three Jeanette Hall has been a fitness and Taekwondo instructor her entire life, even training Tiff herself up to Black Belt standard.
Speaking exclusively to FEMAIL, Jeanette revealed exactly what she eats and how she trains to look so toned in her sixties.

When it comes to a day in the life, Jeanette of Halls Taekwondo said she will start each morning in much the same way as the rest of the world – with a coffee.
The 61-year-old’s caffeine of choice is an espresso, which she follows with coconut oil pulling.
Oil pulling has been touted by countless health professionals as the solution to good oral hygiene and good breath.
‘I follow my coffee with a TIFFXO workout, or I do some martial arts or go for a walk,’ she told FEMAIL. ‘Whatever I do, I train before 7am to get it out of the way.’
A typical breakfast is a homemade strawberries and cream smoothie, while lunchtime will see Jeanette eat a carrot, bean, hummus and rocket wrap.

What are Jeanette’s diet and fitness tips?
* She doesn’t cut any foods from her diet – including dairy and carbohydrates.
* She focuses on managing her portions.
* She takes every second day off exercise to listen to her body.
* She trains before 7am to get it out of the way.
* She eats a little of what she loves. In her case, this might be licorice.
‘At some point in the afternoon, I’ll snack on some honey sesame roasted chickpeas at my desk, and might have a piece of fruit or some licorice,’ she said.
‘Dinner is something like fish and sweet potato chips followed by berries, Greek yoghurt and flaxseed oil.’
Jeanette said she doesn’t cut any foods from her diet – including dairy and carbohydrates – but instead focuses on managing her portions.
She said you can have fun with food and eat the things you love, but you just need to balance it out with exercise the next day.
‘My mum has a philosophy where she believes you should have every second day off – it suits her,’ Tiff said of Jeanette previously.
‘You do have to listen to your body. And you do have to fit it amongst a busier lifestyle; now that I’m a mum, exercising every day sometimes doesn’t happen for me.’

Speaking about her own daily diet – which she shared from on holiday in Bali – Tiffiny (pictured with Jeanette) said it’s all about listening to your body and enjoying a little of what you love
Speaking about her own daily diet right now – which she shared from on holiday in Bali – Tiffiny told FEMAIL that it’s all about listening to your body and enjoying a little of what you love.
‘For breakfast, I like to stock my villa full of fresh fruit and vegetables so I can make smoothie breakfasts for the whole fam,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
‘Right now, I’m all about my TIFFXO Lean Green Smoothie, made with baby spinach leaves, avocado, banana, chia seeds and protein powder – it’s the perfect start to the day.’
Lunch will typically see the 34-year-old load up her plate with salmon, which she said is high in omega-3 fatty acids which help the health of your skin and hair.
‘I love to try new cafes in Bali, and usually go for a place that has a delicious sounding salmon salad.’

What is a typical Tiffiny Hall workout?
Tiffiny Hall shared a workout she swears by with FEMAIL
This 16-minute workout was given exclusively to Daily Mail Australia by Tiffiny Hall. Perform each move for 30 seconds with a 10-second rest between exercises. Complete four rounds.
Move 1: Upper Body Flow
Push up on knees, shoulder tap each shoulder, and into a side plank. Great for abs, obliques and toning arms.
Tip: Push up strongly through your palms, tuck your pelvis under, pull up through the belly button to engage your core and squeeze your glutes to stabilise during the shoulder taps. Side plank, make sure your hip is in line with your knee.
Move 2: Continuous Front Kicks
Kick it out! This is ideal for abs and legs.
Tip: Drive through the hip and kick through the ball of your foot to tense your calf. Crunch your abs as you drive your knee and keep your arms tensed.
Move 3: Continuous Jabs
Shred those arms and back.
Tip: Punch with your front two knuckles with a strong fist to support your wrist. Tense your whole arm and pivot through your hips. Punch with your entire body twisting into the punch with core power.
Move 4: Bear Hover Hold
Lock that core. Hold it. Smash your abs.
Tip: Keep your knees just hovering above the ground while pulling up through the belly button, tucking your pelvis under and flexing the hamstrings. Push up through your fingers to help your grip strength.
Move 5: Oblique Boxing Twists
All about the upper body, especially abs, torso, and arms.
Tip: Keep your fists strong so your arm is flexed to create tone through the arms. Most important thing to remember is to keep your hips to the front and only move your shoulders and obliques.
Move 6: Marching Hip Raises
And now for the lower body. Time to work those glutes and get that butt peachy.
Tip: Keep your hips up and in line with your ribs while imprinting your belly button towards the floor. Draw your knee to your chest, squeeze with your abs and pull up through your pelvic floor. Keep those heels close to your butt so you work your glutes, not your hamstrings.
When it comes to dinner, Tiff loves nasi goreng, which she’ll either eat out with half rice and extra veggies or at home made with cauliflower fried rice – she said she’ll customise orders to make them work for her
When it comes to dinner, Tiff loves nasi goreng, which she’ll either eat out with half rice and extra veggies or at home made with cauliflower fried rice:
‘I’m all about customising orders to make them work for you,’ she said.
While you might not expect it, Tiff said she certainly snacks when she’s hungry – and loves eating fresh fruit like pineapple.
‘I avoid cocktails or other sugary drinks as they’re usually empty calories with no nutritional value.
She also enjoys hot chips and licorice – and the odd bowl of ice cream, provided it fits into her 80 per cent healthy, 20 per cent what she wants.
