I wanted to take my fitness career to a different level, so I started training with her in 2006. She took me to my first bodybuilding show in Dallas, The Europa Super Show. There I saw Amanda Jo Savell win the Pro Figure & I was hooked; I knew in my heart that this was my passion.
I began working out for 6 months until I was injured. This injury, as well as several other unfortunate occurrences put my fitness career on hold for awhile. However, I still managed to stay in the gym.
About 2 years later in 2008, I was able to begin training with Susan again. In April of 2009 I entered my first figure show and placed 6th in Figure! The feeling of being on that stage was everything I knew it would be! All of my hard work and effort paid off! Soon after, I decided to train for another show. I ended up placing 5th at the 2009 Europa Super Show, one of the biggest shows in the US. This competition was held on the very same stage that I saw all of the pro fitness and figure competitors I looked up to several years back.
These experiences taught me to never give up on your goals, never give up on your dreams and never give up on yourself no matter how many set backs you may have in life. Everything in life comes with a challenge and a struggle; nothing is ever handed to you.
You have to learn how to fight, push through, and work hard for what you want. We all have this in us, and we have to dig deep to pull ahead. Consistency is KEY! And, as I heard once from an old friend, TRAIN WITH PASSION!
I am currently working with a new coach for the 2011 season and I’m looking forward to many more shows. I hope to compete at a national level next year and EARN my Pro Card to be the best, and compete with the best! That is my goal
I have had 5 years of experience working with and coaching figure, bikini and bodybuilding competitors and all levels of fitness. I encourage everyone to live healthy and happy lives and strive to promote a good lifestyle through training,cardiovascular activity and a nutritional diet.
