I was always active as a child, I was a Dancer all I wanted to do was Dance so had quite a muscular structure from a young age was not a tiny skinny girl and it took just one comment at the age of 14 to give me a complex and change the way I felt about my body! A young boy at school yelled out “your legs are Huge”(they where muscular) little did he know that comment changed me. I started to obsess about food, from Binge eating to starving myself.
I yo-yoed in my weight for years I would fluctuate quite often. I continued dancing and worked professionally as a Dancer but my body image and relationship with food would eventually stop me from Dancing and at that stage gaining quite a bit of weight i would fluctuate between 49kg and my biggest being 74kg,I was trying to comfort myself with food ,I was using my weight as an excuse to why I didn’t make it as a dancer.
I started to study Yoga and started to really love myself and believe in myself and after years of abusing my body with binge eating and starving I developed a More balanced approach with eating to live NOT living to eat. And then started to Lift weights in the gym I loved feeling strong and loved the way my body started to look ATHLETIC .
I felt alive and started to feel I was good at something. I Did a personal training course to learn more and then decided after a year of training consistently that this is what I want to do! I also became a Yoga teacher and then Body pump and RPM.
I live and Breathe HEALTH and FITNESS.I truly do practise what I preach!
When Did I Start My Journey:
I met Jon Davie 3 years ago because I decided I wanted to compete in a Figure competition and he prepared a Woman that I admired in the sport!
So I Listened and followed everything he told me to do and after 3 yrs finally made it to that stage.
Achievements So Far:
I won my first competition and also got selected to go to VEGAS to compete(my secret dream) did not expect to be chosen after my first comp!
And then 5 weeks later went to Melbourne and WON my class and WON the Overall as well.
I love the sense of achievement, standing on stage in the best condition of my life! I also made it on the front cover of OXYGEN Magazine my favourite mag of all time!!!!
Never in my wildest dreams did I think any of this would happen!!!
Where To From Here:
I competed in Las Vegas last year, in which I was placed in the TOP 10 in the Fitness America Weekend 2010. This year I competed at the FitX Sports Weekend in March in Melbourne and came 2nd.
I had an awesome time over the past few years and look forward to the exciting things happening in 2012!
I weight train 5 days per week, Teach yoga, pump and rpm classes and I have a successful Personal training business.
I believe I really do help my clients because I have not always had the body I live in right now! And I can relate to them. I feel so blessed and honoured that people feel im an inspiration to them.
Goals and Aspirations:
