WHO AM I ?
After being away from the competing world for about 8 years, I recently claimed my long and overdue victory, at the Miami Nationals on the 18th of November 2017. Winning my IFBB PRO Card in the Figure Division in just under 9 weeks.
In the past, during my early years, I suffered from being overweight growing up. I did what most did, read articles, joined a gym, and tried all different kinds of methods to transform my body.
I attended the gym every day at 5 am, and every evening at 6 pm. However, although I had reached the ideal weight, I still wanted to gain size. I wanted to have a more athletic tone yet keep my feminine attributes. It wasn’t until I met Yosiah Isarel that my life changed. He offered me a deal of a lifetime. He saw my efforts and said I had real potential, but my form was all off. He was willing to help free of charge as long as I was present each morning at 5 am. And so, I was, he invited me to my first bodybuilding show and I was hooked!
From that moment on my journey through the fitness world began. I decided to get certified as a personal trainer, and study nutrition in college. I graduated with an ASSOCIATES IN DIETETIC NUTRITION AND CERTIFIED NUTRITIONIST.
While in school I competed and place 2 nd at my first NPC show. I grew so fond of nutrition and exercise and had stunned the world with my transformation, I took a personal training job at Equinox for two years. I later Taught boot camp and opened my first in-water cycling class in Miami.
However, a year later due to lack of inventory for my bikes, I decided to go back into personal training, and took a whopping 7 years off of competing and doing quite well with training others, I was approached by a well-renowned coach and bodybuilder to get back on stage, At the time I was working in Italy and well out of the shape I was used to. I had 6 weeks to prepare. The show was the New York Grand Prix, I not only won I also took overall and was immediately asked to compete for my pro card at the Miami Nationals.
To my surprise, I did it! I became officially the first person to get her pro card in such a short period of time.
Now as a pro I would be competing with the pros and for money! Who doesn’t want that? I sure did. Unfortunately after the first pro show and placing 15 th , due to some minor outfit technicalities, I suffered depression not because I had not won, because during these months of glory, I was in a very abusive and manipulative relationship. This issue bought me back to my overweight days, and I took a hard fall, I lost the drive,, motivation, inspiration, and ambition to do anything besides, see my psychiatrist beinge eat and drink.
I left my beach front apartment in Miami Beach and moved to New York to my family’s place that was pretty much vacant. I must say it was very hard to regain myself, but I did. I cried most days, stayed home, I even went basically bald, after experiencing a bad product I put in my hair that caused it all to fall out. I then go my ears pierced with 7 piercings, colored my new hair, and wallowed more in sorrow, drinking not eating and feeling sorry for myself.
How did I get back into it? After some deep meditation, and reading, I woke up one day and decided if I was going to start over Id have to change my number and rid my life of the negative people and energy some .. most of them had. I began slowly building a home gym and working on myself again.
I worked up the nerve to join a gym about a month and a half later and gave myself a series of goals.
First, I decided to cut all bad habits I had one was drinking, second smoking, and last start detoxing. Second, I picked a show to keep myself disciplined and focused through the upcoming year, If I was going to change I had to lead by example. Lastly, I decided to change my website, so I could help others through my own trials and tribulations.
