My name is Janelle and I have been competing since 2007. I met Bonnie at my first fitness camp in 2008. From the very first day I met her- the words "Bodybuilder" kept slipping from her mouth. I had been dieting on my own and could never quite get to where I wanted to be for Figure and Fit body. In the summer of 2010 I was in a very bad car accident where I tore my neck and injured my back. I didn't think I would be able to compete again. I was out of the gym for almost a year.
I had to sit out of three competitions and was very depressed. I had gained almost 40 pounds! When I finally got the ok to go back to the gym, I knew I wanted to compete again. I contacted Bonnie. I decided that maybe she saw something in me that I couldn't see and chose to concentrate on Bodybuilding. She definitely knew what she was talking about!
Although I had a lot of weight to lose, I still had good muscle density. She took me from 143 pounds to 107 pounds, in 16 weeks. I was READY the day of the Monster Mash Competition in November of 2011. I felt and looked better than I ever did....until this past June.
I competed in the NE Classic on June 2, 2012 taking third place in Open Bodybuilding and Master's Bodybuilding. Also placing 4th in Master's Fit body. I also went to the Connecticut Natural on June 9th being the only female bodybuilder and taking 2nd place in Open Fit body. I also took home a surprising Best Female Posing. My contest weight was 105lbs and I maintained an off season weight of 120-125lbs this past season.
Bonnie has made me into the competitor and athlete I always hoped to be. Her diets are custom to your body and how it works. I am never hungry anymore while dieting and am beyond confident with my body when I walk on stage (or frankly- anywhere...) She is the best!!!!!
