Why I Got Started

Throughout high school, I had been overweight and inactive. In 1999, after the birth of my daughter, I weighed in at 198 pounds.

I was unhappy with my body and felt horrible about myself, so I decided to join a gym and change my eating habits. In 8 months I lost about 80 pounds.

How I Did It

I started doing cardio 6 days per week and eating healthier meals. After a while, I began circuit training in addition to my cardio. After a few months, I changed to a 4-day split.

I loved it so much that I got certified as a personal trainer and nutritionist. I have been competing on-and-off for a few years and am currently working on going pro. If I can do it, anybody can!

Training

READING THIS WORKOUT LOG
Superset - Two exercises are performed consecutively without any rest.

Failure - That point in an exercise at which you have so fully fatigued your working muscles that they can no longer complete an additional repetition of a movement with strict biomechanics.

I do cardio every day for an hour before my first meal. Pre-contest I add a second 45-minute session after my workout.

    Days 1 And 3: Upper Body

    Days 2 And 4: Lower Body

I change my workout every 2-3 weeks so I don't hit a plateau.


Suggestions For Others

The biggest obstacle for me was the diet, and since diet is 80% of your results, you need to have it perfect. I would suggest hiring a nutritionist to create your diet so you can get the best results possible, and learn about nutrition along the way.

A trainer is a great investment when starting out so you can learn proper form and technique. The biggest key is being patient and believing in yourself. It will take time, hard work, dedication, and sacrifice, but in the end you'll learn a lot about yourself and you'll be stronger and healthier because of it.
