How Did Your Fitness Journey Begin?

My passion for bodybuilding began when I signed up at SuperGym. At age 16, my cousin encouraged me to start weight training and I followed his lead. I joined the gym of a great Portuguese bodybuilder named Pedro Andrade. That was the beginning of my amazing adventure.

Now, at age 19, my goal is to achieve the best physique and shape to compete in the Portuguese Juniors Championship in April. I'm doing my best, training hard, and working relentlessly to find a sponsor and compete abroad.
