How did you first hear about the Championships and what motivated you to compete?: Friends of mine have competed here in the past and I’ve always wanted to give it a shot, but never had the drive.

Highlights and struggles during contest prep?: The biggest highlight during prep is seeing my body transform and the progress I’m making each day. The main struggle is your body and mind getting tired but the important thing is staying FOCUSED and keeping a positive mindset.

Tip of the day or favorite motivational quote you would like to share?: Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. -Lou Holtz
