Describe your path to the pro ranks.
The struggle and challenge for me when i compete has been to manage my All or Nothing approach. I’ve been very successful when i had to focus on a competition, however when the curtain closes and the show is over I often lose focus and desire to continue to succeed. I call this the PSB (post show blues), I know this happens to many other competitors as well. This year I have approached my off season with balance and consistency, and so far i am very happy with the results!
What does being a WNBF pro mean to you?
Being a WNBF Pro means a lot to me and I am very committed to the WNBF. I choose to compete with the WNBF because it is an ALL Natural Federation, I’m STRONGLY against the use of DRUGS. I find it very disappointing to see individuals who use drugs in a sport that is based on health, fitness and integrity. I believe if one has great genetics, trains hard and has proper nutrition that they can be very competitive and successful naturally. The WNBF is a great place to showcase your goods and compete with competitors of great caliber. I’m proud and honored to have my name affiliated with the WNBF. I take great pride in representing myself as a WNBF World Champion all natural athlete.
Are you involved in other areas of natural bodybuilding?
I’m currently a Coach at Orange Theory Fitness in Natick and thoroughly enjoy it! I teach group fitness “Afterburn” classes supporting theories of EPOC (excess post exercise oxygen consumption). I recommend this form of training to everyone.
I worked with a variety of competitors who competed in the 2015 WNBF North East Classic. I also coach clients on improving their general nutrition knowledge, as well as helping with pre contest preparation and peaking.
I have test judged a few shows and would really like to learn more about the judging process. When I decide to retire from competing I’d definitely like to participate in judging WNBF events.
Will you be competing in the 2015 Worlds in Atlantic City?
What are your competitive goals?
I have been working incredibly hard the past two years and I would be thrilled to win another World Title at the 2015 WNBF Pro World Championships in Atlantic City.
