  • AS A BIKINI PRO IT'S KEY FOR ME TO GET INTO THE GYM TO LIFT 6 DAYS OF THE WEEK AND TAKE A DAY OFF TO REST! CARDIO AND I HAVE A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP BUT I INCORPORATE HIIT CARDIO 3 DAYS OF THE WEEK, AND ONLY FOR 20 MINUTES. MY FAVORITE SESSION OF HIIT IS BATTLE ROPES. THEY KILL YOUR SHOULDERS AND REALLY GET YOUR HEART RATE UP. IT’S IMPORTANT TO FIND BALANCE IN YOUR WORKOUTS, NEVER SKIP LEG DAY! I GET LEGS AND GLUTES IN AT LEAST TWICE A WEEK, WHETHER ITS PLYOMETRICS OR HEAVY LIFTING. MY FAVORITE BOOTY BLASTING EXERCISES ARE - 4 SETS HIP THRUSTS, REPS DECREASE AS WEIGHT INCREASES - 4 SETS OF BULGARIAN SPLIT SQUATS, 12 REPS 4 SETS ON A GLUTE HYPEREXTENSION BENCH, 15 REPS

IFBB Pro Bikini
Bio
Hi!

I'm an IFBB Bikini Pro born and raised in Arizona. My whole life I've been active in sports; soccer, dance, competitive cheer. I thrive on a challenge and I love to push myself. When I was 22 I got out of a bad relationship and had a major change of direction in my life. I was given an opportunity to really focus on what made me happy and what fuels my drive. So I started working out at a gym and lifting weights. I loved feeling stronger, faster and being dedicated to something that I could continually improve on. The more I lifted, the more I loved the results. At that point I'd set my sights on my next goal, an NPC Bikini competition. It took a little time for me to mentally prep myself for that challenge, but once I was ready, I was 100% focused.

After my first show, the Phoenix Europa, I was hooked! I loved the journey getting to that stage and that moment was worth every early morning workout, every self doubting moment, and every ounce of sweet potatoes (which is a lot of sweet potatoes!) My next goal from there was to chase that Pro Card! I competed in 3 more shows after that. With amazing support of coaches that called me out when needed and kept me in line, as well as a husband who supported me whole-heartedly, I GOT IT at USA Nationals in Vegas this last July!

It's an amazing feeling to eat sleep and breathe something, and be able to achieve it. I look forward to helping others be inspired to do the same. Fitness is more than a goal, it's a lifestyle.

My other addiction besides fitness and of course chocolate, is styling. I do hair and makeup at a salon in Mesa, AZ. It is the best feeling at the end of the day when you helped someone feel better about themselves in some way. I have the love of a swollmate that shares my passion for a healthy lifestyle and we have two furry babies that we adore. It's an honor to apart of Team ON, the greatest team in the world!
