Erin Holland and her fiancé Ben Cutting were in Pakistan the month leading up to nationwide lockdowns, and returned before hotel quarantine was enforced.  

And in an interview with The Sunday Telegraph, the model, 31, recalled the initial struggle of adapting to life in lockdown amid COVID-19, at Ben’s home in Brisbane. 

‘For someone who usually spends the majority of the year travelling, I really struggled with it in the beginning. It was a massive shock to the system,’ she said.

Erin and cricket star Ben, 33, were fortunate to be able to undergo 14 days of self-isolation at home and not a hotel, following their return to Australia. 

Despite having to adapt to a quieter life so quickly, the former beauty pageant queen said she was grateful to be able to lean on the support of Ben.

‘I was so happy I had Ben to lean on. He quickly set about creating a makeshift gym with bits of equipment we could find online, incorporating daily workouts, and doing my PT sessions over Zoom,’ Erin told The Sunday Telegraph.

Erin went on to say that regular training and enjoying three meals with Ben, was ‘actually really lovely’ as they are used to being in a long-distance relationship.

Once restrictions began to ease in June, Erin took part in Berocca’s 28 Day Challenge to help fight ‘iso-exhaustion’.

‘Everyone’s lives have been so disrupted and the fear of the unknown is stressful. It takes its toll on your physical and mental energy,’ she told Daily Mail Australia at the time. ‘I’ve definitely been feeling that.’

Alongside two to five personal training sessions a week focusing on high-intensity interval training and abdominal work, Erin also took a Berocca supplement daily. 

Erin cooked healthy meals consisting of vegetables and lean meat or fish with Ben, and decided to cut out alcohol.
