Resolutions For The New Year


I have been hearing all my friends New Year goals and resolutions. But how many people stick to it and actually reach the goals they set out? Not many!

The biggest reason for this is focusing too much on the end result instead of taking one step at a time.

Second, most people do not know how much food and exercise their body really needs. You may also not realize how many secret calories you’re taking in during the day.

So here are a few tips to overcome these challenges.

No matter how much you need to lose weight, or whatever your goal may be, it is so important to not try and tackle the whole process at once. Break it down into smaller, more easily-handled pieces. This will lead to many small successes. Each success will motivate you to keep going and take the next step.

You should not follow anyone else’s diet. Everyone has a different metabolic rate. Your lifestyle and eating habits are not exactly the same as anyone else, so you need to learn what is really right for you. You should get some help to determine what’s best for you. If you can’t, then only knowledge will remove your fear and uncertainty, so educate yourself, search the Internet – life is beauty, do not waste time!

Start to read the food and drink labels. You will not believe how many calories and how much sugar you put in your body every day!

Start slowly – everything starts with a first step. Keep taking more small steps. If you get tired or feel like quitting, don’t look at what you still want to do but instead look back at how much you already achieved. Find the proper balance and you will have a happy life!

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!!!!!
