"It is a shame for a woman to grow old without ever seeing the strength and beauty of which her body is capable." - Socrates
Our bodies are the most incredible gift we have been given. If treated right, they will take us through life and help us achieve anything our hearts desire.
The decision to work on myself, came back in 2012; I had gone through a phase in my life, as most of us do, where I was eating and drinking what I wanted, not caring what was consumed, or in what quantities.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I regret that period in my life, because I don't. I was happy and I was living my life; it was amazing! But it got to a point where I noticed that it was affecting me in a not so positive way anymore. I was unhappy and thinking back on it now... a little depressed.
So I decided to do something about it. I was still living and enjoying my life, but I made myself a priority! I changed my eating habits by forming sustainable ones and eating balanced meals (80/20). I started a workout regimen and regained control of my life and my body in the most beneficial way. No tricks, no shortcuts, just clean eating and exercise!
The result: I have never felt more in control of my life and my future! I realized what a profound impact motivation, determination and commitment can have on oneself. It wasn’t just the physical transformation, but everything else that came with it! The satisfaction of simply setting a goal and achieving it, the positive change that I experienced on my life and the incredible amount of self-love I gained for myself.
My drive, love and appreciation for health and fitness, led to my certification in Sport and Exercise Nutrition (Precision Nutrition, Pn1) in 2015, as well as Personal Training (National Academy of Sports Medicine, NASM) in 2017.
Fitness has become my ambition and my motivation and I've always been completely obsessed with food, so it's been my challenge and goal to re-invent the food scale and let the world know that it IS possible to be healthy and fit WITHOUT having to sacrifice food! I spend my days exploring, re-defining and applying food & fitness in my own way. I find it helps achieve progress and keeps things exciting at the same time.
My goal in life is to educate, inspire, motivate and help you achieve the life (and the bod) that you've always wanted. To fall in love with it and to be PROUD of it, because loving yourself is the greatest revolution. In this life, there aren't many things that we have control over; our bodies, are one of them. This very reasoning is what led to the creation of the Body Squad Guide. So put your faith in me & let's work on you!
I'm quirky and weird.
But I'm me - and that's the only person I ever want to be.
THE BSG APPROACH
Fitness Done Differently
Body Squad isn't about losing weight or becoming the tiniest version of you.
It isn't about being 'model skinny'.
It isn't about starving yourself to get your dream bod.
It isn't about false hopes and false expectation.
It's about strength.
It's about motivation, hard work and sweat!
It's about reinventing yourself in the best way possible.
It's about breaking the mold and setting your own standards.
Building self-love, confidence and appreciating your body for everything it's capable of.
It's about loving the journey and learning to value yourself for the incredible, beautiful and original bad ass that you are!
