What Motivated You To Begin Training?
Iwas tired of being over weight, I never doubted myself, it was only a matter of getting off my ass and doing something about it.
If you have transformed yourself what do you attribute to arriving at your starting point:
When I was in grade two I was diagnosed with a blood condition, I had to go on steroids at 8 years old which made me very hungry and lazy for a little girl, over the years I gained a lot of weight and at 15 I was 220lbs.
Tell us a little about your training philosophy:
Everyone has their own unique limit in which they must push in order for improvement. No one can say someone worked harder then someone else in the gym when they are both pushing themselves to their own capacity. Pick up your own slack, prove nothing to no one but yourself.
Tell us a little bit about your diet philosophy:
Healthy lifestyle is the only way to maintain healthy fit physique. Cook with whole foods, whole fats, carbs and proteins. Your diet will be as good as you want to treat/ reward yourself. Your mind and body will respond way better to your efforts when you realize the importance of your diet/digestive system.
Please tell us about your competitive history and placings (if applicable):
I have competed in a transformation competitionand placed first.
Tell us about some of your short and long term goals:
I aspire to inspire, be a life coach, teach people that a personal trainer can tell you all you want but at the end of the day it’s up to you to bust their ass for the results they want. I want to help shift fitness into more of a community where the pros help the amateurs and the armatures admire and become motivated of the success of a professional rather than envious.
Who do you look to for motivation and why?
Yes, not from professionals or super fit girls they’re awesome and stuff but from the ones who have great courage. I find my motivation through humble people, through people who are optimistic, people who lift others up instead of putting them down. Strangers that past me smiles are the biggest ones.
What are some of the most difficult obstacles that you have had to overcome?
Dr Bernstein diet, yo-yo dieting, binge eating, minor starvation.
Tell us some of your pet peeves surrounding healthy life and the gym:
People who don’t take the time to understand, they just judge or become jealous or criticful. Sexualization of women. The constant competition u feel from some people. People who can’t appreciate hard work.
What is the number one piece of advice that you would give someone that looks to you for inspiration?
Believe in yourself, better yet, vision yourself.
