Thanks for taking the time to share your success with our readers and congratulations on winning the 2015 Natural Bodz Asia Pacific Bikini Model Classic Class. I believe this was your very first Bikini Competition, how would you describe the entire experience? Thank you so much! Still very much in shock that I actually managed to place first in my division on debut. The whole experience from start to finish was absolutely phenomenal! I couldn’t have achieved what I did without the love and support of my coach and soul mate, Ben Abstacker. I owe this one to him! I also could not have achieved what I did without the love and support from my beautiful family and friends. In my opinion the Natural Bodz Asia Pacifics is by far the most prestigious fitness events and this is a true reflection of the tireless effort and hard work yourself and Antoinette Jones put in.
When did your journey into health and fitness begin and who or what inspired you to compete in your first ever Bikini event? I have always been interested in keeping fit and healthy, getting my first gym membership when I was only 16 yrs old. Being a part time model also I had to keep in shape most of the time, so this was also a motivating factor. My inspiration would have to be my partner Ben Abstacker, who I would support as he pursued his fitness dream in competing in 2011.
Your stage presence was outstanding…do you feel your modeling background helped with this and do you have any tips for girls looking to compete for the first time on how to bring energy and vibrance to the stage? Thank you. Yes I would say my previous modelling experience definitely does help being familiar with the stage and helps with your self-confidence and knowing what works for you. My advice would be just to try and relax and be yourself up there, let your own unique personality come out. Take your time and smile and just have fun with it! Also practice practice practice so you feel confident and prepared on the day!
Were you or are you still involved in any other sports outside of the gym? Do you feel activities like sprinting, athletics, gymnastics or dance assist with overall body condition or stage performance? I used to do allot of soft sand running and sprints until I injured myself- tore my labral in my hip. So unfortunately I have had to look at other ways to get my cardio component in. I would say any type of physical activity that helps stretch the body definitely assists with your overall mobility and strength. And I have always been a big believer if you enjoy doing something you are going to stick with it.
