BodySpace Member Of The Month: Olivia Moschetti

This aspiring figure competitor is making waves early in her career. She uses BodySpace to spread her fire for health and fitness around the world.

Young people who become engaged in athletics early in their lives get an incredible head start on generating a quality physique. They tend to use their bodies for active lifestyles, and typically get in the weight room at an early age.

Olivia Moschetti, a true beauty from high in the Rockies, first met the iron in middle school. She grew into her speedy body, dominating the track, the pitch, and the basketball court.

Now she is intent to build a personal training empire and take gold at the Figure Olympia. One step at a time, she is climbing that mountain.

For now, she lives on BodySpace, affecting one life at a time and feeding off the motivation inherent in the world's largest social networking site built solely for health and fitness.

Q
What is your favorite thing about the fit life?

My favorite thing about the fit life is the way that it makes you feel, being healthy and fit makes a positive person. You love the way you feel on the inside and the way you look on the outside.

When you get a group of fit people together, there is no better atmosphere to be in. All positivity! All inspiring! All motivated!

How did you discover BodySpace?

I have ordered my supplements off of Bodybuilding.com for years now. I stumbled upon BodySpace while making an order one day and I signed up, but I wasn't really too involved at first. I came back to it about a year later because I was watching it grow and my supplement sponsor, Evogen Nutrition, requested that I keep my BodySpace updated.

Now I can't stay off of it! It's such a great atmosphere for fitness enthusiasts to visit and share and communicate their goals and struggles.

"The day I earn my IFBB pro card will be one of the most memorable and significant days of my life."

What would it mean to you to win your IFBB pro card?

My goal is to earn my IFBB pro card this upcoming competition season. My plans for my future and career are all based off of this accomplishment. The day that I earn my IFBB pro card will be one of the most memorable and significant days of my adult life. It's a huge stepping stone!

How do you think BodySpace has helped you reach your goals?

BodySpace has helped keep me motivated by keeping me accountable. I track my body stats on my profile, and I'm motivated also by the feedback and support I get from my followers. I feel like they count on me for inspiration. I hate letting people down!

What are some of the challenges you face as a young personal trainer?

Building a consistent client base is by far the biggest challenge in starting my own personal training business. It is sometimes difficult trying to help people understand the importance of consistency in their training and diet. We have to give people courage; they can't be afraid to get help.

Olivia the Athlete

Olivia played high school soccer, basketball, and track. She ran the 100 m, 200 m, and relays. She played forward in soccer and point guard in basketball. She played collegiate soccer at Colorado State.

What is your favorite feature on BodySpace?

My favorite BodySpace feature is probably the "before and after" photo option. I love seeing people's hard work pay off!

What is your favorite muscle group to train, and can you give us a sample workout?

My favorite muscle group to train is definitely shoulders!

Olivia's Shoulder Workout

You've been on BodySpace for a few years. How do you stay motivated for the long term?

I know how I feel when I am not following a healthy eating schedule and I miss workouts. I feel off balance and motivation quickly fades. Training and eating healthy are a part of my daily routine.

It is easier to get out of healthy habits than it is to get back into healthy habits. My motivation is keeping that from happening.

In your competition photos your color is nearly perfect. What is your pre-contest tanning regimen?

I am a firm believer in following your skin prep sheet! I don't understand why people don't. It can totally make or break your appearance on stage. It's a pet-peeve, sorry. I always exfoliate the week leading up to my competition with scrub gloves and an exfoliating scrub. I shave my entire body one week before my show and then again the night before my first tanning appointment.

"It is easier to get out of healthy habits than it is to get back into healthy habits. My motivation is keeping that from happening."

I do not use any lotion the week leading up to the show and use a fragrance-free, lotion-free body wash and soap the entire week leading up to the show. I hate having dry skin so this is one of my least favorite parts of show prep, but it definitely shows when I get my pro-tan applied. I always get compliments on my skin prep by my tanners.

Are you bothered by some of the stereotypes of female bodybuilders?

I don't let stereotypes or anyone's negative opinions bother me. I do what I do for me and because I love it. Let the haters hate.

What are your favorite supplements?

I am a strong supporter of Evogen Nutrition's Supplements: Cell Kem (post), EVP (pre), and Glycoject (fast carbs). All of their supplements are extremely clean and have all of the best ingredients. I have had my best gains off Evogen supplements.

Do you struggle with anything in the gym? What's your biggest obstacle?

Forcing myself to do my cardio in the off-season! That decision is a constant struggle.

What type of music do you listen to in the gym?

I like to train to rap, hip-hop, and techno. Right now these are my consistent picks.

  1. Drake: "Hold On, We're going home"
  2. Avicii: "Wake Me up"
  3. Morgan Page and Sultan, Ned Shepard and BT ft. Angela McCluskey: "In The Air"
  4. Benny Benassi ft. Channing: "Come Fly Away"
  5. Sam Sparro: "Black & Gold"

You have great musculature and killer biceps! How did you get to this point?

Genetically, I've always been able to put on muscle quickly, but I have also been an athlete my entire life and have been weightlifting since middle school. It didn't happen overnight.

What is your favorite way to spend a rest day?

"BodySpace is a great way to share training and nutrition ideas, methods, and philosophies."

I enjoy spending rest days with my family and friends, and sleeping in. Rest days are always food prep days!

Someone will read this feature and consider joining BodySpace. Why should that person become a part of the largest fitness social network?

BodySpace is a great way to share training and nutrition ideas, methods, and philosophies. The community is filled with people with similar goals and expectations of themselves and of one another.

It's an awesome way to keep yourself and others accountable and on track. BodySpace is a community of people who want to succeed themselves, and also desire to see each other succeed!

As you get further and further into fitness, what have you learned about yourself, inside and out?

Over the last few years, throughout my career as a competitor I have learned just how much I am capable of. Competing has taught me the importance of self-motivation, self-discipline and the importance of perseverance. It's amazing what your body is capable of if your mind will allow it.

Do you stick to one type of training, or do you vary your exercise attacks?

In my off-season I heavy-up on muscle groups that I need to add muscle and size to and keep high-reps, lower weight on areas that I need to keep smaller. As I get closer to a competition everything becomes higher reps, lower weight.

What are your competition ambitions? Which division?

I am going for my pro card this upcoming competition season. Eventually, my aim is high, I want on the Olympia stage as Ms. Figure Olympia! Every day my ambition is to simply be better and stronger than I was yesterday and weaker than I will be tomorrow.

Who inspires you? Are they all athletes, or is there someone else whom you idolize?

The people who I find most inspiring are not all famous athletes. To me the most inspiring people have had to struggle and work and fail and then pick themselves back up to overcome sickness, disease, disability, obesity—people who do not let their circumstances keep them from achieving the life they want for themselves.

"The most inspiring people struggle and work and fail and then pick themselves back up."

Bodybuilders have school, day-jobs and families, and still dedicate hours in the gym each week. How do you strike a balance? What happens when you get tired?

It can definitely become a challenge to find balance while trying to compete, mostly because being social often includes food! And it's never food you can eat while you prep.

I find to keep balance I need to get out of the house and the gym while I prep. This keeps me from losing your mind and my motivation. Go get coffee or see a movie; just stay away from situations that might temp you to slip and cheat.

Has BodySpace changed much since you joined? How so?

Yes, members have become a lot more active and involved in the BodySpace community since I first joined. It's awesome to see so many people coming together for a common goal. We keep each other motivated and moving forward, closer to our fitness and health goals.

If you could do a workout with anyone on earth, who would it be?

Dana Linn Bailey. She's a badass!

How can your fans find you on other social media?

All of my social media accounts are my first and last name or some derivative of the two combined so just type in Olivia Moschetti! There aren't many people who share my name.
