Your weight

When was the last time you weighed yourself? Don’t be scared! It’s your own body, you need to know everything about it. Check your weight once a week – make sure it’s always at the same time of day (for example always first thing in the morning), and wear the same clothes every time.

Then write it down.

You need to keep track of your weight. If you need to lose some weight, then think about it this way: imagine you are holding a glass of water for 5 minutes. That’s no problem, right? Let’s say 10 minutes – now maybe your arm starts getting tired. How about 1 hour? Probably you already dropped the glass because your arm and shoulder were hurting so much.

Now imagine this extra weight on your own body. Maybe for 3 months, or 6 months, maybe for many years. How does your body feel, your joints, your heart? You’re carrying all that extra weight around with you all the time, and that’s hurting your body.

When you start losing weight you will have so much more energy. You will feel lighter, younger, and much happier.

Make sure you do your workout every day! This will also help you think much more about what you’re eating, so your diet will improve too.

Your body is made for moving – be grateful and thankful for what you have, you have legs, you have arms. Focus on what you can do, don’t waste any energy on thinking about what you can’t do. Do your best every day, and always remember, just take it one day at a time. Go for a walk, and maybe while you’re walking you can move your arms. And keep smiling – life is awesome, you are awesome!

Keep moving, and keep motivating each other!

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!!!!!
