OBSTACLES YOU HAVE OVERCOME
It was only about 12 months ago that I decided to change my life.
Boy was I lazy!! The closest I came to training was bicep curling a cigarette or glass of alcohol to my mouth. NO JOKE! I had next to no interest in sport let alone competing!
Life was just one big party… After a few years the novelty wore off.
I guess eventually I got sick of my unhealthy lifestyle and never feeling alive and energetic. The one thing I did have was motivation to be extreme in anything I put my mind to. I loved a challenge. After some encouragement from my partner to join the gym and a personal trainer who believed in me, I changed my mind set and turned the motivated extreme attitude into training! I was hooked. It wasn’t long after I decided to compete! The best thing I've ever done!
I love the discipline, hard work and most of all the pay off!
I eat healthy, train 5-6 times a week, given up cigarettes and the party lifestyle.
I have never felt better! My mind feels clear and I am so much happier!
My main hobby is changing my body. I have a picture of how I want to look in my mind. Everyday that I go to the gym brings me closer to achieving that body. The thing I love most about this sport is that it’s a slow process & teachers you a great deal patience. Consistency is the key!
Other interests include music, singing, meditation and fashion.
FUTURE GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS
Most definitely want career in the fitness industry. Would love to tee up with a nutritional brand or fitness clothing company as their ambassador. I’d love to run workshops for new sports or fitness competitors or just women in general who need to build their confidence & help them to set goals & achieve things they weren’t thought possible. Over the past 5 months so many women of a similar age ask me for advice and guidance, I really enjoy motivating them to make positive changes in their lives! I defiantly get a kick out of being able to influence people in a positive way!
