My Fitness Journey
In January 2019 I decided I was going to enter my very first fitness competition with the NPAA. I began training in February and dedicated myself to the process entirely. Preparing for a fitness competition as incredibly difficult and also incredibly rewarding. It was one of the most challenging experiences of my life - physically and mentally. I enjoyed the entire process and the anticipation of show day was so exciting. I am now the proud holder of the Professional Bikini Model certificate with the NPAA. I continue to train and enjoy my time in the gym. I am excited to see where my fitness journey will lead me. For 2020, my main goal is to build muscle and bring an improved, stronger package to stage at my next show.
My first show day October 19, 2019 was my very first show day and it was an amazing experience. I was so proud to bring the package that I had worked so hard for to the stage. I competed in the category Novice Fitness and received 3rd place. I then competed in the category Novice Bikini and, to my surprise, received 1st place - a gold medal! I was so happy, and moved on to compete in Open Bikini, where I received 1st place. I was absolutely thrilled and so proud. Being awarded 1st in the Open meant I earned my "Professional Bikini Model" certificate and I would move up again to compete that same day in the Pro Bikini. I received 4th place in Pro Bikini.
Inside Fitness Magazine January 2020, I received my very first feature in a Canadian Fitness Magazine! I submitted to the Inside Fitness 2019 Hot & Fit Top 100 in the fall and I am so grateful for being selected and included in the magazine. The magazine issue is available here.
