Fitness was always part of my life, started back in the day when I was a kid. I was dancing in school theatre, I was into gymnastic, enjoying cycling and running. Things changed in my 20s when I moved out from my family city and got busy with work and study. I didn’t care about physical activity anymore, neither diet. Until one day my friend introduced me to the gym. And I got hooked in.
After couple of weeks of strength and cardio training I started to see some results, which was very motivational for me.
I decided to compete in bodybuilding in bikini category. And that time, I remember what was only matter for me was to achieve the perfect body.
I wanted to be like other girls on the stage; show off my hard work and how much your body can change if you follow training and diet plan.
I achieved my goal (competed twice), I was very proud of myself that time. I’ve learned a lot from this experience, it requires you to have good self discipline and mental (not physical) strength.
After competition, one thing bothered me all the time. I had a feeling that my body doesn’t have a great connection with my mind. I was skinny and ‘fit’ but I wasn’t feeling great. All this time it was only road to achieved perfect body, to have more muscles, be more skinny, drop the body fat as low as possible. Today I know it was very unhealthy way of thinking. Cause that time what I only cared about was counting calories, proteins and carbs pretty much.
I felt lethargic, weak and unhappy, every couple of weeks I had a cold and flu and I knew that it shouldn’t be like that when you are young person in your 20s. I wanted to make a change to feel better not only physically but mentally as well. It wasn’t anymore just only about perfect body. I wanted to have more energy, better immunity, better sleep, better, long term results at the gym. That’s when I started to read and study about health, nutrition and wellbeing and it’s huge aspect in our life. I became health and nutrition coach, personal trainer and in few years time I really improved quality of my life. The ability to help others reach their goals by proper nutrition and training is really blessing to me. Today I would like to help others reach their body or diet goals, gain confidence and empower them through fitness.
