Benefits Of Water


In my last article, I talked about starting your journey to health and fitness by taking small steps. Let’s look now at the first step that you can start right away. This week, start by trying to drink more pure water. Let’s look at the benefits.

Water increases energy. Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. And your energy levels will increase.

Water helps you lose weight – filling your tummy if consumed prior to meals, it reduces hunger, raises your metabolism and has zero calories!

It flushes out toxins by getting rid of waste through sweat and urination. This reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTIs (urinary tract infections).

Ample water improves your skin – water moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. It helps get rid of wrinkles. You will look even more beautiful than you already are!

Drinking plenty of water helps your gut. Water is essential for digesting your food and preventing constipation.

It improves your immune system – drinking plenty of water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments like heart attacks.

Water is a natural headache remedy. It helps relieve and prevent headaches, as well as migraines and back pains too.

Staying hydrated prevents cramps and sprains. Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic so joint pain is less likely.

Drinking water puts you in a good mood – when the body is functioning at its best, you will feel great and be happy!

It saves money – water is calorie-free and cheap. Even if you choose bottled or filtered water, it’s still much cheaper than that high sugar and fat-filled latte.

That’s a lot of benefits that you get if you drink enough water! But how much you should drink every day? More than you think! For women you need around 3/4 of a gallon, for men it’s around one gallon daily. Of course, it depends how much exercise you are doing. If you’d like to know the correct amount for your body type then please email me.

So let’s drink lots of water this week. When you start seeing the benefits, you’ll want to drink more. Find a water bottle that you can carry everywhere you go, this way you’ll know exactly how much water you are drinking.

Let’s help each other to make Molokai the healthiest, happiest and fittest Hawaiian island!

You’ve probably heard so many people say “I love what I do”, BUT in my case I can truly say it from my heart. I’ve competed in sports all my life, but it wasn’t so long ago that I really understood that actually I can only ever compete with myself.

“You are perfect, until compare yourself with someone else”

I started contest prep in 2011, and since then I didn’t stop competing. In some competitions I got first place, in some it went not so well, but every competition that I prepared for taught me something more about myself and helped me take the correct direction, which I believe has shaped my work and my life in such a positive way.

When I competed in my first bikini competition I had just moved from my home country Turkey to Canada, and was getting used to the Canadian lifestyle — and, of course, the language too, which was the hardest part for me. I always wanted to do a fitness or bikini competition, but when I was still in Turkey the work and cultural differences made it so hard to do.

So I was in Vancouver BC, working at Steve Nash Fitness Club, and one of my co-workers, who was a competitor herself, asked me “why you are not competing?” I started asking myself and questioning if I could do it? I’d never done anything like it before… Maybe you’re asking yourself the same questions right now! Of course I told myself “absolutely, I can’’. And my competition journey began!

Each show that I competed in gave me more knowledge about my body, and how I can improve. Of course, it’s not easy to correctly identify what’s missing with training and nutrition, and this learning process and all of the experiences pushed me to learn more… I’ve been a personal trainer since 1993, but I wanted more and began my nutrition studies. I finished my Comprehensive Nutrition and Sports Nutrition degrees.

And yes, I am still competing! You can see a list of all of the competitions that I’ve competed in further down this page. And right now, AGAIN, I am getting ready for my next show…!

I’ll warn you right now, it wasn’t easy at all. The easiest part was the training, which was already part of my daily life. But posing, dieting, supplementation, getting a bikini, finding a trainer… This was much tougher, not the mention the cost for the registration, jewelry, tanning, hair and make-up, they cost a lot too. 

But I wouldn’t let anything stop me, and right after my first show — WBFF in May, 2011 — I immediately started looking for the next show to compete in. I was hooked!

I am so happy to be able to help other competitors who are willing to work and improve their mind and health at the same time. My goal is to create healthy and happy bikini competitors, who want to challenge themselves and put in the work that needs to be done to reach their goals. There is really no easy way to get there… But there is a smart way.

I look forward to working together and sharing my knowledge with YOU to get you in the best shape of your LIFE!!!!!
