Hey there SPA ladies!
I saw that I should introduce myself to the group with my Aha Moment. 🙂
I guess I would say that I’ve had a few of those moments but most recently I had my biggest “Um, I might be crazy but I think I’m going to enter a Figure Competition next year” moment last October.
I started my blog http://fromfittofigure.com to hold myself accountable to it and lo behold it’s just 12 weeks away!
I’ve created a little following which I’m very proud of and I would like to expand it to other women who are training for their first bodybuilding competition too.
This is probably the most intense program I’ve ever put myself through, even more so than when I trained for a marathon. The diet is key and I’m lucky to have invested in a great coach who is also an RD. I’m doing it safely and I’m lifting heavy and this is probably the healthiest I’ve ever felt in years!
My job is a Personal Trainer which I’ve been for about 5 years. I also work the desk at a boxing facility as well as a yoga studio. So you can say I’m surrounded by fitness on a daily basis. 🙂
Looking forward to exploring what the rest of what SPA and Fit Approach have to offer as well as getting to know my fellow ladies in this biz! By the way, if you’re interested in training for or already training for a figure/bikini/bodybuilding competition, feel free to shoot me an email to swap stories! Always interesting to hear how other women are handling the diet and the training for these competitions.
