I've been active since I was a couple of months old, when my mom started me in swimming lessons. Since then, I've done volleyball, track, softball, soccer, swimming, bodybuilding, yoga, martial arts. But I really got serious in 2006 when I moved to Hawaii and ate a few too many avocados. I realized that I had let my body and fitness level go and was determined to win a figure competition. In 4 months, I went from 26% BF to 12% and won my first figure competition!
Why I Love it
I love feeling strong and powerful! I love pushing my physical/mental limits and achieving things I once thought were not possible. Plus, it's fun lifting more than guys and demonstrating that women are not the weaker sex!! :)
