Why I Love Fitness?

Unlike most fitness influencer’s on Instagram, I never had a background in fitness. I never watched a parent undertake bodybuilding nor teach me how to eat healthy.

Throughout my teens and 20s, I was sugar addicted and junk food addicted. I had no willpower and could never say no to donuts and party mix lollies. I was in and out of hospital with illnesses due to my really bad lifestyle of poor eating, stress, and frustration with life.

When I decided to invest my entire life into transforming my body—my entire life changed (not just my body!)

I attracted new friends (and lost old ones,) I had more energy and more confidence to take on some of life’s greatest adventures. The feeling is addictive and helping others in their fitness journey is even more addictive.


Fitness Model Competitions

After transforming my body and maintaining the results for some time, I decided to compete for the first time in March 2017.

I told myself: “only one competition!” and this was the result:

  • 1st Place Fitness Model Rising Star (March 2017)
  • 1st Place Fitness Model Novice (March 2017)
  • 2nd Place Fitness Model Overall (March 2017)
  • Arnold Model Search (March 2017)
  • 5th Place Fitness Model Novice (7th May 2017)
  • 5th Place Fitness Model Open (7th May 2017)
  • 1st Place Fitness Model Novice (27th May 2017)
  • 3rd Place Fitness Model Open (27th May 2017)
  • 5th Place Fitness Model Novice (World Titles, June 2017)

All of these competitions were documented on my YouTube channel which you can watch here.

Next Competition: 23rd September 2017
