How and when did you get started in training and living a fit lifestyle?
I started training just 1 year ago when I realized my metabolism was no longer the same. I began weight lifting 1 hour a day 5 days a week during the night (including 40 minutes of cardio at the end).
What got you started in the fitness industry?
I used to eat a lot and train nothing, and my body maintained its shape. However when I turned 21, everything changed. I started noticing my belly wasn’t flat anymore, my butt did not look good and all the junk food I ate was affecting my body.
Along with your fitness journey, have you ever felt like quitting… and if so what/who motivated you to keep going?
Yes, I have. Sometimes I couldn’t fit my workout into my schedule so I stopped for weeks when I was busy. It was difficult to go back on track after so many weeks off. However, I decided to organize my schedule better in order to at least workout 40 to 60 minutes a day.
What types of cardio have worked best for you?
I normally do my cardio after my weightlifting session. But I notice my body gets used to it, So I try to change the routine every now and then. (Including cardio in-between sets; like rope jumping or sprints) One must change the exercises; it’s better to keep challenging the body.
What supplements do you use… and what are some of your favorites you would recommend?
I don’t like taking a lot of supplements. Only fish oil and multivitamins. And of course, my protein shakes (My favorite brand is Dymatize, I really recommend it)
When you look back what do you think has been the key to achieving your goals?
Organization and constancy are my keys. When I don’t feel like working out is usually when I workout the most. Every person in the world has at least 40 minutes a day to dedicate to oneself, and that’s exactly what I do every day of my life.
What’s one tip you would give to a person just starting their fitness journey?
My only advice is: DO NOT compare yourself to anyone. Each person is difficult, find the way that works for you and never stop pushing yourself.
What’s one of your favorite quotes?
“Believe you can and you are Halfway there”
What’s next for you?
I would want to compete in order to add to my modeling career the title of bikini competitor.
