Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
I am currently training for my first bikini competition taking place in December 2020. My current goal is to try to build my legs a little bigger and to get my glutes to pop.
Even though this is my first competition, I am striving to be the best and hope to take home gold.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I am a mother of 2, married and juggling a demanding career. I would like to share my story with women out there and show them that it is possible and that it’s never too late to lead a healthy and fit lifestyle.
About 6-7 years ago I was struggling with anorexia. One day I woke up and had an epiphany and decided to change my life. It was certainly difficult in the beginning and I had to teach myself how to eat again. I joined the gym and never looked back. My supplement brand of choice was Biogen and it still is today. It saw me through my journey, through the extremely tough times too.
I had to learn to accept that I was gaining weight and called this journey of mine going from size zero to size hero.
I want to share my story, the ups and the downs and hopefully this will help women and motivate them to lead a healthy and fit lifestyle.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
If you don’t go after what you want, you will never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you are always in the same place.
This just reminds me that sometimes you have to put yourself out there, risk a little to get a little. No one says it will be easy.
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
I am an avid gym bunny. I do 6 days a week of weight training. Currently because I am trying to build my legs and I train them twice a week. This is currently intense so I have to eat up on leg days. I also do morning cardio 3 times a week. Mostly brisk walking but I like to change things up a little sometimes to keep things interesting o I also enjoy the stepper and step master.
I love anything that gets my heart rate up and have completed a few fun runs too.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I think I am the next Biogen Face of Fitness as I have a story to share that will motivate women to start their fitness journey. I also believe that I am one with the brand and do believe in Biogen products effectiveness. I love the flavors and truth and legitimacy in the brand.
