How did you get started with bodybuilding/Living the Fitness lifestyle?

  • I’ve always been into fitness. I started lifting around the age of 13 or 14 when I started high school. I went to Edward R Murrow and as part of our PE program I always chose weight training. Since then it stuck with me. My interest with bodybuilding came about 3 or 4yrs ago just browsing instagram and searching the web for new fitness ventures. I kind of thought why not. My health had finally given me a rest so it was now or never. I kind of wish I knew about this industry sooner but I do believe everything happens for a reason and there is a right or wrong time for everything. I enjoy working out and performing on stage in front of an audience has never been a problem for me, having a dance and cheerleading background. November 2014 is when I competed in my first NPC show as a Bikini Competitor and haven’t back since.
  • Now in January 2018 after making my Figure Debut & winning 1st place at my last show on Nov 11, 2017, I can proudly say I am a Nationally Qualified Figure Competitor and plan on earning my Pro Card this season.

Where does your motivation come from?

My motivation comes from me first and foremost. Giving 100% to everything that I do and pushing myself to be the best that I could drives me. Next would have to be my sister and my circle of close nit friends that I can literally count on one hand. My Coach John Gabucci who has literally MORPHED my  Bikini physique  to a Figure physique in such a short period of time I am TRUELY in AWE! I could not have made it to this point without his help, support & guidance. When you trust the process and follow through, you get RESULTS.

I’m human so of course I have my good and bad days, when I do have those days – – those individuals are my sanity, breathe of fresh air. Without them I wouldn’t have gotten this far. I always say whenever this sport doesn’t make me happy; it’s time to move on. But seeing the continued camaraderie between athletes in this industry is very inspiring. It is truly a fitness family.

What workout routine has worked best for you?

  • I change it up time-to-time depending on how I feel at the start of the week. But I genuinely like to hit two muscle groups a day. I train heavy unless I have a show approaching then I do high reps low weight. I try to get cardio in 5-6 times a week usually fasted for about 45min-60min. If I don’t do fasted cardio I will do a 20-25min HIIT in the afternoon after training. I hit core at 3-4 times a week and what day honestly depends on my mood and how much time I have left.
  • As a Figure competitor everything changes. HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY. One muscle group a day. Cardio I do 6-7 days a week and as show day approaches it turns to two 45min -60min sessions 7 days

Monday:

  • Back

Tuesday:

  • Shoulders

Wednesday:

  • Cardio only – If I’m not beat up then I would a muscle group

Thursday:

  • Legs

Friday:

  • Arms

Saturday:

  • Glutes

Sunday:

  • Chest

If you had to pick only 3 exercises, what would they be and why?

 

  • Standing Lateral Rasie: I love a good shoulder pump and I feel it the most with this exercise plus there are so many variations of it. My fav body part.
  • Reverse Hack Squat: I hate training my lower body because it’s the most stubborn part of my body. With this exercise I feel I hit majority of the muscles in both my legs and glutes
  • Floor Crunches: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

 

What is your diet like?

Honestly I follow what my coach says. But when I don’t have to be super strict I find it a bit more flexible to track meals (macros) on my fitness pal.

What is your supplementation like?

 

  • L Carnitine
  • Fish oil
  • Multivitamin
  • L Glutamine
  • Probiotics
  • BCAA
  • Fat Burner

 

Prepping for a show, I’ll add:
  • Dandelion Root
  • Fat Burner (only if I feel like my body needs that extra boost)
  • XPel (a week in a half before show day)
