At the age of 9, I started running track. I competed in the 400m, 800m, and relays (4 x 1 and 4 x 4). I even competed and was invited to the Junior Olympics a few times. I ran track on and off until my 2nd year of college when I transferred out of state for school. This is where I started my fitness journey. I didn’t know there was a difference between being an athlete and your personal fitness journey until I hit my lowest point in college and started using fitness as a way to heal. I wanted to work on myself inside out, and fitness became my therapy to do so. I was a naturally petite woman weighing 98 lbs throughout high school. I could wear a girls size 12 pants in college. My first two years of college I wanted to put on weight. I knew there was a way I could use fitness to get the body I desired. I wanted more curves. I wanted a bigger butt. But I didn’t want my waist to get bigger - I wanted to shrink it, actually. And though everyone around me thought I was crazy, I knew there was a way fitness and my nutrition could help me obtain my new goals set. I began going into the gym at late hours to understand my body in a new way. I started using machines offered in ways they weren’t typically used to get the glute activation needed to cause true butt growth. How did I figure this out? I honestly just feel like I was meant to do this because I was like a kid in a candy store figuring out how to transform my body. I went from a 32in glute to 36 in glute in just a matter of 3 months—98 lbs to 130 lbs. I began to drink protein and eat foods that were great to promote booty growth paired with my workouts. I never imagined fitness would give me such confidence, and it’s something I wanted to pass along to others - it was just too great not to share. Fitness showed me that whatever you put your mind to and wholeheartedly go after, you can accomplish. I wanted to help others learn to love themselves and gain confidence not only in themselves but in their dreams as well!
