Why did you decided to transform?
I was really overweight and unhealthy, I have a lot of friends in the fitness industry and was constantly motivated to achieve something I have dreamed of for years. The catch is, I wanted to do it naturally. So, with the help of my best friend, we trained at home and constantly progressed each day getting closer to that dream physique.
What keeps you motivated?
Most def all the athletes who compete and sacrifice the “average” lifestyle to that of a dedicated and determined discipline. The constant reminder of why we do what we do, and what it takes to get there.

The first step is the hardest, once youve made the decision to go for it, don’t give up because the rewards are certainly worth the sacrifices. I know i’ve had difficulty at some points, askingmyself why i go through what i do, but with the constant drive from my best friend, and the appreciation from those I inspire, I get back up and push even harder.

“What a day… 11 weeks of prep for a long day well worth the wait. A life goal of mine finally achieved, so much that I shed a few tears during prejudging thanks for all the awesome support, the messages and the calls. Means the world to me. Was first out on stage, and managed to place fifth out of a seriously strong lineup. I take my hat off to those who compete and kick ass at it. It’s hard work!!! What a day! Well done to everyone who took the stage and gave it their all!”
