How Did You Get Started?
I was a gymnast when I was younger and then went on to cheer competitively in high school. After high school I went on to cheer at Oklahoma State University throughout my college career where I was captain of the squad.
After I was done with school I still needed something to satisfy my competitive attitude and also something to keep me from just sitting around eating cookies all day so fitness seemed like a good fit. It is hard but I love the results.
What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
We own a personal training studio in Tulsa (Finer Physiques of Tulsa) so fitting in my workouts is pretty convenient. My fiance is a competitive bodybuilder and I am pretty small (it is hard for me to put on a lot of muscle) so I have been doing more of a body builder's workout to try and put some quality muscle.
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
I work with a great nutritionist who not only keeps me sane but gives me a diet that gets me competition ready while giving me options so I feel human while dieting!
What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?
I take multivitamin, glutamine, glucosamine, Z-Mass, methoxy, and calcium. I believe that all of these in conjunction with a healthy diet and smart workout plan have helped my body to stay strong through all the torture I put it through!
Why Do You Love Fitness?
I love fitness because not everyone can do it! I know the hard work that has to be put into getting ready to compete in fitness and the patience you have, the drive, and the talent, and anyone who can stick with it through all the tough times deserves respect!
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
I will continue to compete until this body gives out! Of course the ultimate goal is a pro card but on top of that I look at these women that are in their 40's doing this sport and are kicking butt at it. I just hope that I am still able to do it when 10 and 15 years have past!
What One Tip Would You Give Other Fitness Competitors?
Stick to YOUR goals, not someone else's, people will constantly try and discourage you because they don't understand; so surround yourself with positive people and you will get the support you need to reach that goal.
Who Are Your Favorite Fitness Competitors/Bodybuilders?
Favorite fitness competitors would have to be Jen Hendershott just for her "balls to the wall" attitude, Kelly Ryan for all of her flawless skills and clean gymnastics she incorporates into her routines and Stacy Hylton for her difficulty levels in her routines.
