A grocery trip sparked the dream of the Bikini Competition Academy.
When I was training for my first show, I experienced a moment that will stay with me forever.
I was using the hack squat machine and when I stood up from the machine I caught a glimpse of a woman in the far mirror. I thought to myself “wow! She looks fit!” And then instantly I realized it was me. I took a long look at this woman in the mirror as tears of joy and triumph filled my eyes. My hard work was showing and I had never seen my physique look this way. My gratitude left such an impression on me that I knew I had to help other women experience this same feeling!
It took 2 years to realize how this dream would manifest. During my training, I kept saying to myself “why hasn’t anyone created a place with all the bikini information?” I became frustrated looking for guidance on my hair, tan, backstage, etc.
After I earned my IFBB Pro card I was grocery shopping one day, again thinking about how I could help other women reach their dreams. While strolling past the lettuce a thought hit me. I knew I should create a learning academy for bikini athletes. And I did. I am smiling as I write this because I have such a love for my girls inside the academy. Earning a pro card was fun but it does not compare to the connections inside the academy.
