[ Q ] How did you find out about BodySpace?
dot

    I found BodySpace back in June of 2007. I was searching for nutrition tips and sample diets for extreme hardgainers. Bodybuilding.com was one of the sites that popped up.

    I did some more browsing and stumbled onto BodySpace. As soon as I started reading through profiles, I got the strongest internal motivation ever.

[ Q ] What is the best advice you have for somebody who wants to get started in becoming fit?
dot

    First of all, starting out right can make the difference between success and failure. You need to have your note book or vision board handy, so that your goals about becoming fit are intentional.

    You will be more successful if you make your goals intentional. Start with short-term realistic goals, when you feel that you are ready to take the next step set long-term goals.

    Honestly, I have such a strong internal drive that it's hard for me to ever have a bad day. I believe my strong will, drive and dedication definitely came from my mother.

    I also have to give credit to my college track and field coach, who tought me the meaning of self-discipline and mental toughness.

[ Q ] What have you done that you are most proud of?
dot

    You know, I have set some goals for myself that I have proudly accomplished as far as fitness goes. But the one thing that I am most proud of, is being able to speak fluently. I have been a mild stutterer for most of my life. When I turned 28, it all kind of hit me.

    Through self therapy and reprogramming my mind to think differently, I have been able to move forward with what I want to do with my career. Being able to be in the running for the BodySpace Spokesmodel was a big deal. After all, I do have to be able to speak to my audience.

[ Q ] When people you know ask you what is the 'secret' to being in shape, how do you respond?
dot

    I actually do get that question quite a bit. I often tell people that your mind ultimately can take your body where it needs to go.

    It is your foundation for success in everything you do. Then I let them know that they have to set some goals for themselves and again, be intentional with their goals.

    Nutrition plays the biggest role in what you look like, it counts for at least 85%. If you want to get in shape and maintain what you worked so hard for, you have to eat healthy and eat smart. And of course a great exercise program can come in handy too.
