How Did You Get Started?

In a local model contest, another model was boasting about her high scores in the Galaxy contest. Although I never would have thought to even try to qualify for the Galaxy, I thought, "If she can score so well, surely I can at least compete." I went to the Galaxy preliminaries and qualified to compete in the USA Galaxy. Because of her success, my confidence was boosted and I tried for something that I never would have thought possible. Ironically, her story wasn't truthful and I found out later that she had never even competed in the Galaxy. Later that year, I went on to rank in the top 25% of fitness competitors in a world fitness competition. I am grateful that her little white lie gave me the confidence to start my fitness competition career.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I change my workout plan frequently. For athletic competitions, I think sprints and body weight exercises (push-ups, pull-ups, etc.) have really been a benefit.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Although most competitors probably won't list their multi-vitamin as giving them great gains, I think that it's one of the most important. By insuring that I receive all the necessary nutrients, my immune system stays stronger and allows me to maximum my training and my performance. I'm also a big fan of CLA.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Training has toned my body and enhanced my modeling career, the consistent exercise benefits my health and my state of mind, and the competition provides me with a sense of satisfaction. Fitness provides me with so many benefits that I can't help but love what it does for me.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I will continue to compete in a variety of competitions. I love the number of different competitions available, and will continue to take myself out of my comfort zone by taking on new types of competitions.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Stay focused, but focus on the fun. Competing in fitness can bring you so much more than a title.
