Fitness Model and Coach
Tell us a bit about you and your journey…
I got into fitness around 5 year ago while I was still at university and like many do, I started out as a cardio bunny and lost quite a bit of weight. I switched partying for running and going to the gym. It was a huge outlet for me while I was studying and looking back, this was a massive turning point in my life. Around the same time I also become vegan and started to look and feel better than ever. Although I had been a vegetarian since I was a kid, it wasn’t until I become 100% plant based that I really felt a shift in health. I woke up with more energy, had clear skin, lost unwanted weight and felt happier than ever.
I was wanting to gain a more toned look and was introduced to lifting weights by a friend, I absolutely loved it! Unfortunately, I had been told by many that it would be difficult to put on muscle as a vegan To my surprise though, I rapidly gained muscle and saw results straight away. I decided that I wanted to see how far I could push myself and break down the “skinny vegan” stereotype. I knew that if I could gain muscle as a vegan then anyone could!
I tried PranaON for the first time at the Arnold Classic expo and was hooked. I was so excited to find a company that shared my values and was also all about showing the world what vegans could achieve.
I continued to train harder, and people would ask me what I was doing and questioned whether I had considered competing. I had never given it that much thought but with my new found confidence and my passion for spreading the benefits of going plant based, I decided to give it a shot.
I placed second in the open division of my very first fitness comp which ignited my passion even more so. Since then I have made it my mission to show what results are possible while being natural and plant based. I have noticed that it is so much easier to maintain a healthy and lean physique year long when plant based. I want to share with the world how to live this sustainable lifestyle!
