Figure Competitor & Personal Trainer
As a child, I was very athletic. I was a dancer and an ice skater for over 10 years. I relied on dancing and skating to maintain my physique, but my nutrition, however, was far from healthy. I ate extremely poorly and it finally caught up to me after high school. I yo-yo dieted for many years and it put so much stress on my body. I became a cardio queen so I could stay fit and maintain my unhealthy lifestyle. Fit isn't even the right word to use because I look at pictures from that period of my life and I look so unhealthy! In my early twenties I was working at a gym and it exposed me to a healthier lifestyle. I began eating better and lifting weights. I enjoyed lifting weight so much that I began hating cardio!
I enjoyed the lifestyle so much that I began modeling and competing and eventually made a career out of helping others reach their fitness goals! At the end of 2012, I launched the clean-eating blog On the Chopping Block. I have provided tons of clean-eating recipes to support a clean-eating lifestyle.
You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and, my favorite, Instagram! Follow me: @RBertler.
Stay fit, stay healthy!
