Why I decided to transform:

To be honest my motivation comes from a desire deep, deep down to want to achieve the most out of my life. I try to live without regrets so I try to take chances at things that I know I would regret not doing when I’m older. I always try to challenge myself and that’s why I decided to keep pushing forward. Once I saw results, it became an addiction. I like to set goals for myself. So I am always trying to achieve these goals and do steps in order to do my goals.

What keeps me motivated:

I have a simple quote that I live by and that is, “Trust me, when you love something, you don’t need motivation.”

How I accomplished my goals:

Training like never before ! Every day I look forward to going to the gym. The gym shouldn’t be something you dread to do; it should be something you can’t wait to do. You have to be patient,though. Nothing good comes easily. You have to work your ass off and results will come. Also, I always switch my workout routine so every week I do different workout. This way you increase the challenge ! Changing my diet was definitely the key to success. Diet is a serious must if anyone wants to get results so I would recommend to watch what you eat and count your macros.

What aspect challenged me the most:

Gaining lean muscle was surely tough. You have to stick to your diet every single day which made me a little bit upset at first but then I saw the benefits of the “healthy eating” and that got me motivated to keep going. Once you see results,it becomes an addiction.

My future fitness plans:

I just want to continue doing what I do and have fun with it. I am really dedicated and my next goal is to compete! I want to show everybody that anything is possible because hard work always pays off. Actually,I’ve always wanted to become a personal trainer and I’m glad that I can say that I have accomplished that goal. What I love about being a PT is that I can share my knowledge with others. I love using social media to keep my followers up to date what happens with my life but what I am really motivated to do next is to turn my YouTube and Instagram pages into the ultimate fitness place!

Suggestions for aspiring transformers:

Take gym seriously! Don’t cheat on your diet because fitness is 80% diet and 20% training. Don’t listen what others say,remember that each day you have is a blessing and you have to give your all to make your dreams come true. So do what you love and never be satisfied with it. STAY ALWAYS HUNGRY!
