HOW IT STARTED
As a young girl I was always into playing sports like football, rugby or tennis with the boys – I loved running about all day. I got into gymnastics at the age of 5, but as I developed, my genetics were too muscular and I eventually realised that my 26-inch waist and 38-inch hips weren’t in line with the aesthetic look desired in a young gymnast. This is when my passion turned to sprinting.
“When I turned 22 I started seeing pictures of professional fitness athletes like Roberta Zuniga and Davila Fernanda, this is when I knew I wanted to compete.”
Winning the Miami Pro Fitness Model Champion title with the other top 2 winners
I was the fastest within my year from the age of 8 through 16, and I remember that the other kids would laugh at me when it came to competition time. I would be standing in the stadium, ready to start my race, and they’d laugh because I was taller than the other girls and had big thighs. I always had the last laugh when I finished in 1st place. Though I had the biggest thighs, they definitely helped me along the way.
“I transformed my body from an everyday girl in Wales to Miami Pro’s UNIVERSE Junior Bikini and Fitness Model Champion 2015!”
On the Miami Pro stage being crowned the Ms. Junior Bikini Champion 2015 Through my late teenage years I went through phases of training religiously and then not training at all, and this cycle would continue month in and month out. As an 18-year old I was more focused on cardio, but then when I turned 22 I started seeing pictures of professional fitness athletes like Roberta Zuniga and Davila Fernanda. I always knew I wanted to compete in the fitness industry but didn’t have the knowledge of how or where to start.

In May 2015 I decided to compete for the first time at Miami Pro, and enlisted the help of a prep coach. I prepped for 5 months, lifting weights and focusing heavily on my legs and glutes along with a rigorous cardio regime. When I’m in the gym I like to zone out and focus on turning my weaknesses into strengths, and in just 20 weeks I transformed my body from an everyday girl in Wales to Miami Pro’s UNIVERSE Junior Bikini and Fitness Model Champion 2015!
To win made all my hard work really worth it, and has pushed me to strive to make a career out of doing what I love, which is training hard. Thank you, Miami Pro. You put on a great show!
