How and when did you start training?

I started training at the age of 14 years old for highschool sports to increase athletic performances. Once senior year went by I fell in love with training even more simply to become the most aesthetic possible and to follow a healthy lifestyle!

What mistakes did you make as a newbie?

Training for long periods of time with poor nutrition, not the best form and not enough rest (recovery time).

We know consistency is key, what tips would you give to
anyone struggling to stay consistent?

The key to staying consistent is to have a motive, ''Why are you here, and where do you want to go?'' Because everything you have done has got you to were you are, so if you want to change your life you're going to have to do things you've never done! If your reason is strong enough nothing will stop you. You have to avoid negative surroundings by surrounding yourself with people that either follow the same lifestyle or respect your choices and encourage you.

Do you listen to music whilst training?

Sure music is actually one of the greatest tools to my physique, music is melodic with such grace and harmony kind'ove like painting with art and sculptures where there is so much passion behind each work. My physique is the canvas, weights are my brush, music and nutrition are my paint!

What do you think about when you have to dig deep and push out that last rep?

That I will never know my limits unless I push myself to them, and that pain is temporary but the pride you gain from that last rep is for a lifetime! 

How far ahead do you plan and prepare ahead your
nutrition and training if at all?

Training sessions are scheduled weekly by my trainer and nutrition varies from week to week depending on my looks and my time management, but I try to prep meals 2-3 days advanced just to be safe and not skip a meal.

What are you most proud of?

My accomplishments as a total, being able to compete and win a provincial show at 18 years old and having a great sponsor such as Fuel: One to support me, but my biggest accomplishment is the change in my attitude and personality outside the gym, the way I see life and how I take nothing for granted or judge anyone because everyone has a different story!

Do you bulk and cut or stay lean year round?

I stay lean year round as it is easier for me when time comes for photoshoots I am always ready.

What types of cardio do you do?

Light jogging.

What is your training routine like?

4 days on 1 day off, cardio and abs 3 times a week and lots of supersets mixed (heavy weights and light weights) alternating the rep range. I also have a Abs workout video and many other motivation videos on youtube.

What is your diet when trying to get in peak condition?

Low carbs, low sodium, high fats (essential fatty acids) and high protein.

Who are your favourite athletes, bodybuilders
or fitness models?

Ulisses Jr, Sergie Constance, James Ellis, Kai Green, Sidney Crosby, Lebron James, Wayne gretzky, Michael Jordon.

What supplements do you use if any?

Fuel: one supplements (fuelone.com) because I trust every product I take since they are made with detailed close attention and love for athletes.

What top 3 tips would you give to anyone wanting to get CutAndJacked?

  1. Follow a healthy Nutrition plan (it's not a diet it's a lifestyle).
  2. Take some rest time for your body to recover and come back even stronger.
  3. Stay passionate and consistent with your training and lifestyle because at times people will bring you down and make you question your lifestyle.
