Transformation period: My transformation was 20 weeks exactly

Why did you decided to transform?
I wanted a healthier lifestyle for myself, I was previously a hairdresser working 40 hours a week and just unhappy & unhealthy, Which i am finding a lot of people fall into this trap today, You need to wake up everyday and do what makes you happy i believe, No matter what it is!
If you’ve got a dream, go for it.
Looking after your fitness & health is something that i now love teach others how to do.
What keeps you motivated?
I am my own motivation, When i look at my transformation picture and my competition photos of what i achieved in such a short time, Its a constant reminder that i am capable of anything.
How often do you workout?
5 days a week
What type of workout routine do you find the most effective?
I train a resistance program of full body movements, All being functional and improving strength & mobility in things we would do in everyday life I like to mix my training up & keep it interesting so always trying new things.
Currently i am playing with KLT training, Loving the BURN
