How Did You Get Started In Health And Fitness?

I was always in sports as I was the biggest daddy’s girl. My father is an athletic director, coach, physical education teacher has always been my inspiration as I sat on the bench and bus ride of every team he coached. I started athletics at a really young age and then pursued my passion for figure skating and competing at a high level at that sport.

In high school, college, and grad school I continued my love of sports with soccer, lacrosse, track, gymnastics, as well as coaching. After a couple life changing events, struggling with self doubt, negative, body image, and a emergency knee surgery I decided to put my passion into a new goal. I wanted to look on the outside what I practiced and preached being a physical education teacher and personal trainer. I wanted to look the part. I wanted to be the fit beautiful women I saw on the cover of the fitness magazines. I wanted to inspire others as well as fulfill my performing and competitive nature. I needed to find my inner self again. I needed something to define myself again where the skating career left a hole.

I started lifting weights and changing my diet to be more balanced with healthy fats and the right carbohydrates. I was able to push through the injury to compete as a all natural figure competitor. I was able to earn my pro card for that organization and competed as a pro figure for a couple of competitions when I got intrigued by the modeling and glamour of the WBFF competitions. I found a category that seemed suited for me called diva fitness model as I was naturally tall (5’8”) and have long lean muscles. I had the opportunity to express my personality and need for performance through the theme wear round of this category. I was honored to earn my Professional status for WBFF at my first competition. I was hooked

Top 3 Favourite Exercises And Why?

My top 3 exercises are:

  • 1. Lat pull down – I love the way a strong back tapers down to create a great waist.
  • 2. Lateral shoulder side raises- I love the way the deltoid and shoulder caps look in halter shirts.
  • 3. Goblet squats with toes out. Just because I feel shapely glutes are very important.

 

Favourite Form Of Cardio?

Stair master because I feel that is gets my heart rate up right away and get me to sweat like no other. As I am unable to run for very long because of my knee injury I have to resort the machines as my main source of cardio and the stair master always gets the glutes good. Outside of the gym I would say dancing out with friends is my favorite form of cardio

Any Staple Healthy Meals That You Always Eat?

My Staple for breakfast is ¼ oat bran with 2-3 egg whites, stevia, cinnamon and unsweetened almond milk.
For a regular meal I will always have egg whites with one yolk over cooked mushrooms and asparagus. Spices that I use are garlic powder, salt, and stevia. When all mixes together with the runny yolk its tastes like a great sauce.

I use CORE Nutritionals Products the supplements that I use every day ar the CORE Fury (pre-workout), CORE ABC (which is a BCAA powder), and CORE Burn (fat burner) which I use near a show.
 

What Are Your Tips For Beginners?

My advice would be to stay consistent. Be patient, and be dedicated to your goal, without these in the equation it will be hard to maintain fitness goals, gain muscle, or lose weight.
 

What Is The Best Advice You Have Ever Been Given?

Life is too short to worry about things that you can’t control. It’s not the things that happen to you in your life it’s how you react to them that determine your success and happiness.

How Do You Handle Set Backs & Bad Days?

I step back and analyze what I’m doing that’s not allowing me to improve. I am very visual so I need to physically draw a calendar and write in the game plan. Make appointments for myself for working out and preparing healthy meals and commit to it. Usually by a week or two I’m a lot happier and feel in control and balanced again. Never give up. If you hit a road block push through it and keep going.
 

Did You Make Any Mistakes When You First Started Out?

I defiantly got really lean and in shape for my first couple competitions. I would have to say the one thing I could’ve done better was to slowly increase my calories back up to a higher level on the off season so it would be easier to get leaner or as lean for the next competition. I would stay to low-carb and that allowed me not to put on more muscle that I needed to compete and continue to improve my physique. Since then I learned from my mistakes and have continued to maintain a lean physique year round with balanced meals and portion control AND lots of healthy carbohydrates.

Mostly from my parents, friends and followers. I also try to remember how far I’ve come and how much I’ve transformed my body since college and try to remember I can achieve whatever I work hard to achieve.

Inspiration- My father is my biggest inspiration as he has always been such a leader and positive influence in my life when it has to do with sports and fitness. He keeps a healthy lifestyle of balance and love. My mother has been my inspiration as she has been the most loving, giving, and caring person that I’ve ever known. I strive to be like her because she cherishes every moment and lives each day with obvious appreciation of life.
