I train at Spartacus Gym in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
For supplements I like to use soy/whey blends of protein powders and I vary brands all the time unless I have a sponsor, which at the moment I am seeking. I also use glutamine, creatine mono, Usana Essentials and Proflavinols. I keep extra minerals on hand for migraines or cramping. I also like Udos Choice Flax Oil and greens plus.
I have obtained 3 natural fitness pro cards and 3 natural figure pro cards as well as a fitness model pro card. I would like to get 2 more pro cards, one for fitness and one for figure, with a non-tested show, but as a natural!
I feel very confident and empowered now with a great business and excellent gals I coach with my Fitness Team BC group.
I am an Elite Triple Certified Personal Fitness Trainer running Body Rush Personal Training and Fitness Team BC coaching other ladies and men into contest. Choreography, meal planning etc!
I enjoy Inline skating, taking out my dogs, martial arts, watching movies and TV, watching racing of bikes or cars from quarter mile race to NASCAR and all in between including monster truck rallies. I participated in gymnastics, dance, and martial arts.
I own 3 wonderful dogs with the memory of a deceased dog that is still my heart and soul!
Chronic Bronchial Asthma with severe allergies...but I am beating it daily! Anorexia beat it years ago but it never really goes away, you just learn to control it.
