    Committed to high standards

    Sport has always been a big part of my life and I decided to compete seriously in my fitness female body builder bikini competition. It was a great experience and also a great opportunity to evaluate my skills and capabilities. The sport body building teaches discipline and gives a chance to get to know your own strengths as well as weaknesses. I wanted to use all the fitness knowledge I knew had gained through body building and develop my practical skills so that I could help others achieve results. I was hungry and wanted to educate myself more. I had a natural curiosity and wanted to understand all the different perspectives of fitness and become a Personal Trainer.
