Women Fitness President catches up with the IFBB Pro Champion talking fitness & lots more!
You must have had interest in sports and physical activities since childhood. Later you were encouraged & motivated to compete in fitness competitions. You reached the pinnacle of success by winning 1st position at UK Body Fitness Champion 2008.Tell us about your journey that took you to the the world of fitness and as a winner in Professional Figure competitions?
My journey into fitness started from a very young age… I used to train for track and field events, in fact, back in those days my dream was to join the England team and compete in the sprint events. This dream was cut short by illness; I suffered for around a year with a serious respiratory disease. This caused a massive impact to my training and I abandoned my training in the end. For about a year I didn’t particularly train much, up until the point whereby my sister started training as a fitness instructor. When this occurred, my mother asked me if I would accompany her to the gym; because of her age she could not attend without someone who was at least 17. I started attending with her, whilst my sister was pottering around the gym I patiently waited on the stair master… within the space of a few months I had dropped a few dress sizes and resembled a super waif type figure. From here, I started to become more interested in health and fitness. It was a few years later when I became a PT and started working in a gym that another colleague asked me what I thought about the figure athletes in Muscle & Fitness magazine. I remember I had never seen women like this before, and almost instantly, I knew that’s what I wanted to do… I then started training with the intention of becoming a figure professional.
