This was my 3rd consecutive season competing, and by far my most successful. I began this journey 17 months ago because I was tired of eating my feelings and I needed to learn how to have a healthy relationship with food and exercise. I’m not going to say the “off seasons” weren’t tough, but I can now say – without a doubt – that I don’t ever want to go back to place I started again. I have worked way too hard, and have come too far and I intend to seriously change my eating habits and make healthier choices.
This season I built more muscle and lifted heavier than I ever thought I would. Consistently attending bootcamps and pushing myself to increase my weights was a priority of mine, and I was definitely successful at both. This transformation process has taught me so much about myself and what drives me, what keeps me going, and what my body is capable of. Never in a million years did I expect to walk away with a 1st place trophy for my FA age category – never! It was such an accomplishment for me and a testament to the hard work and dedication I put forth over the last 3 seasons.
Each competition prep I learned something new, tried different things, and pushed myself to be the best version of myself. And here I am, in the best shape of my life, and I intend to continue on this amazing journey of health and wellness, even if my 6” acrylic heels and blinged out bikini are now retired.
I am truly grateful for the Fitness Asylum Transformation Program and I couldn’t have done this without the help of Bonnie and her team, as well as the incredible women whom I’ve had the pleasure to working out with at 5:30AM on a weekly basis. This is an extraordinary program, and I encourage anyone who wants to take their fitness goals to the next level, definitely give this a chance, you will not regret it!
