What contest are you prepping for now?
I’m currently off season. The season is now finished for this year. I’ll compete in the first show coming up in the next season.

Improvements you are targeting ?
Right now I’m working on adding some more detail to my physique. I want to add a little more bicep peak, more height to my delts and more detail through-out the mid-back.

How many years have you trained? 21

How and why did you start bodybuilding?
I’ve been doing sports since I was three-years-old and I’ve always been very athletic. I started weight training when I was around 16 or 17-years-old. I wanted to get skinny. Like so many teenagers I was influenced by the media who showcased super skinny models, and I thought working out and not eating would do the job. However I didn’t get skinny. On the contrary, I started to build some solid muscle. I loved training from the minute I lifted a weight, and I actually started loving my new curvier look! I started reading bodybuilding magazines and attending competitions and was amazed by the work, the discipline and the artwork the women were sculpting on their very own bodies! I wanted this too!

What is your dream?
I don’t dream. I do. I’m living my dream. I relocated to Venice, California in October last year. I’ve been visiting California many times, and always loved it. The weather is unbeatable and I’m loving the beach vibe and the health culture that thrives here. It seems like everybody is health conscious here and no where else in the world have I met the kind of respect people have here for my sport. My hard work get acknowledged every day and that feels good and motivates me. I want to be a good ambassador for my sport and enjoy motivating and inspiring others. I try to do so on a daily basis.

What is your short term goal right now?
Staying in shape. Not going too far off my competition weight.

What keeps you motivated?
My love for training.

What do you love most about bodybuilding?
I love working out and I love living a healthy lifestyle.

And what do you hate the most?
That the sport isn’t marketed and promoted very well. Our sport could be much bigger than it is.

What is the biggest thrill or moment you have got from bodybuilding?
When I won the Fibo Pro after an eight year absence from the sport(I retired after a serious back injury) – that was big. All my friends and family were there. We celebrated all night long.

Biggest improvement in last 12 months?
My biggest improvement is mentally. I’m calmer at competitions, I stress less before, during and after. Physique-wise I’ve added a lot more mass to my upper body – arms, delts, back, chest. I’m much more balanced out. I have the best symmetry I’ve ever had at this point.

What tips would you give to newbies?
Lift with the mind/muscle connection and not your ego.

Any training secrets or amazing exercises which have worked for you?
The best secret to a great body is persistence, training smart and eating clean foods and enough of it.
