Do you workout to lose weight?

If the answer is yes, then unfortunately you are wrong! Let me explain why.

It’s great if you go to the gym to do your workout. Maybe you’re even doing intense training, or perhaps you’re just walking outdoors or doing yoga or hula. That’s great, and I love it! But if you keep eating more food than your body needs – if you keep giving your body the same nutrition every day – then nothing will change. Yes, you’ll feel better after your exercise, you’ll sleep better, you’ll feel proud of yourself. And that’s correct, you should be proud of yourself! But you should also be conscious of what you’re eating.

Try to be aware that your food is really just the energy that you’re giving your body to live. If you regularly eat a small amount of food, with a good balance of carbs, protein and fat for each meal, then you will most likely feel good after eating. But if you eat big meals, at irregular times, then excess calories will be stored as fat in your body. But saving fat is not like putting money into a savings account – it’s like using the limit on your credit card! And of course you won’t see any change in your weight or body shape. You’re giving your body more than it needs, so no matter how hard you exercise your body has to deposit the extra in your fat depot.

Each meal, try to be careful what you are eating, and how much you are eating. Try to take just a small amount of food with each meal so that your body has a chance to digest it and use it as energy.

Yes, definitely do your workouts every day for your soul, to feel good. But eat healthfully for your 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!!!!!
