I am a recent Stage 4 Cancer Survivor who beat cancer less than a year ago.
During my battle with cancer, I made the commitment to workout even during chemotherapy treatment and various invasive surgeries. Throughout my whole battle, I never missed one workout and I strongly credit EVL for helping me achieve this as I felt their products gave me the extra push I needed. I am now prepping to obtain my pro-card in June in Classic Physique. My goal is to inspire people and show them that they can bounce back from anything in life and still be their absolute best.
I started bodybuilding as a hobby in 2011 but have played in competitive sports for more than half my life. After suffering through many sports injuries in college, I decided to take up weight lifting. I was immediately hooked once I started getting results and entered my first bodybuilding competition 4 years later.
- ▼WHAT GOT YOU INTO FITNESS?
In the past I would say things like “to be as aesthetic as possible” or “to reach my maximum potential” but after beating cancer last year, I have a new motivation- I want to inspire and be an example to the person who is sitting in the chemo infusion center, the person who has been told that they have low odds of survival, as well as anybody going through a tough time in life- and give them hope. Hope that they can beat the odds like I did. And hope that they can use fitness as well as a strong belief in themselves to overcome any obstacles in life and become better.
- ▼WHAT'S YOUR SOURCE OF INSPIRATION?
My goal is to earn my pro card naturally this year at Junior Nationals in Classic Physique.
- ▼WHAT ARE YOUR FITNESS GOALS?
- ▼WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE EVL SUPPLEMENTS?
The list is long!! But if I could narrow it down to 3 products it would be Recover Mode
, EVL Test
, and Omega 3 Fish Oil
. These 3 products were actually the first 3 supplements I tried from EVL when I was competing in my 1st classic physique competition. I needed a good testosterone booster, recovery supplement, and fish oil for my contest prep, and was really amazed at how well they worked during my preparation!
- ▼WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE EXERCISES?
I absolutely LOVE bench pressing (in any variation) and I have a love/hate relationship with squats lol. There’s just something about squatting til you can’t anymore that builds character and makes you better.
Beating stage 4 cancer in less than a year while never missing a workout.
- ▼WHAT'S YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT?
- ▼WHAT KEEPS YOU GOING?
Everything. My goals. My legacy. My family and loved ones. The people who are fighting for their lives just like I did a few months ago. Literally everything.
Sweet potato fries in particularly ;) And for dessert, I LOVE CHOCOLATE!
