How Did You Get Started?
I have always taken part in something athletic. As a child my parents always supported myself and my siblings in taking part in some sort of athletic activity. I like all natural Bodybuilding & Figure because it is a sport that requires dedication, discipline and focus.
As a Bodybuilder/Figure athlete you need to pay close attention to the foods that go into your body. Following a nutritional diet plan is a must. You need to fuel your body with foods that contain quality protein and carbohydrates. "Eating Clean" has been a way of life for me.
I have chosen this sport because I get satisfaction from going into the gym working with the weights, challenging myself and it's also a great stress reliever.
Secondly I want to be a good role model for my three children ages 6, 4 and 4 (twins). I want them to grow up understanding the importance of good diet and exercise. There are so many issues today with childhood obesity. If we teach children at a young age that good foods and exercise are important it will be come a good habit for them. I also want to show my children that if you set a goal and work hard you can achieve anything!

Why do you love Bodybuilding?
I enjoy the sport of All Natural Bodybuilding & Figure because it keeps me physically and mentally in shape. And it's fun!
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
I just recently became qualified to compete at the Pro-Level in Figure. I plan to work towards winning a Pro Level Figure Competition. I will compete for as long as I can, I enjoy it! I am currently studying to become a personal trainer through A.C.E. I would like to concentrate on helping others reach their fitness goals at whatever level they desire.
What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
I have chosen this sport because I get satisfaction from going into the gym working with the weights, challenging myself and it's also a great stress reliever! I enjoy the social aspect of seeing my friends as well as supporting them in achieving whatever goal they have set out for themselves.
The athletes at the gym or onstage are doing this different reasons. Some just do it to stay healthy and feel good about themselves others have specific goals they have set. Like anything else you need to enjoy the sport to succeed in it and secondly always respect your fellow competitors they are possibly the greatest resources out there. Their knowledge and yours combined will help you excel!
