How Did You Get Started?

Getting into Fitness Competitions was a challenge that I gave myself. I believe in living life to its fullest! Every year I give myself a goal and a challenge to achieve and complete. This year I decided to get serious in the gym, and take my body to that next level of fitness. Competing has always long been a dream of mine, so this was a challenge I was ready to take head on!

I began by joining a gym, hiring an outstanding Professional Trainer, and began a very clean and strict diet. Within no time I saw amazing results! I was hooked from that moment on... the better I look... the harder I train.

It's a lot of hard work and discipline, but it is worth very last minute of it! My first show (Fame World Championships 2005) I took 2nd place in the Fitness Model Open!

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

Proper supplementation and diet is essential when getting ready for a competition, especially due to the depletion process that our bodies go through. I usually stick to the following supplements; Vitamin C, E, B Complex, Multi-Vitamin and L-Glutamine.

And clean diet is essential....I stick to a lot of; Lean protein Proper Complex Carbs Dark Leafy Greens and Essential Healthy Fats. Proper water intake is also very important.

Between the following supplements and a clean strict diet, I will get my greatest gains.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I not only love the physical challenge of fitness... but I especially love the mental challenge of it. It takes a lot of discipline and determination to compete. I train hard, work hard and diet hard! So being a naturally driven and goal oriented person, the hard training and dieting was the perfect challenge for me. The more I see results, the more I want to push myself to my limits. It is amazing to look in the mirror in and see the changes in your body.

Fitness is not a hobby of mine...it's a lifestyle all on its own. It's a lifestyle that I love and that I plan to keep until I am old and grey. I believe in living a long healthy life.

Most of all I love fitness because......when you are standing on that stage, there are no words to explain the sense of accomplishment and achievement that you feel! So placing second my first show was just a high that I can't even explain, there is no feeling like it in the world.

I don't just love fitness... I am passionate about it! And I excel in all that I am passionate about in life.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Monica Brant by far!!
After my first Competition, I had the pleasure to Chat with Monica Brant one on one! It is a moment that I will cherish forever! She was so friendly and down to earth, she gave me a great vote of confidence. She truly is a great source of inspiration for me; she left me with some great advice and a realization that anything is possible is you put your mind to it. Sky is the limit! Who knows, maybe one day I will have the honor of competing with Monica Brant!!
