I won the overall Tri Fitness Grace and Physique competition in 2008 and 2009. In 2008 I won my FAME Bikini Pro status. In 2010 I was the NPC Overall Lenda Murray Bikini Champion, the 2010 Bodybuilding.com Bodyspace Spokesmodel and have competed as a National Level NPC Bikini Competitor, placing top 5 in both shows. I have appeared on the cover of Oxygen Magazine (2008) and Ironman Magazine (2010), and inside of Flex (a 4 page layout for winning month #3 of the Flex online bikini competition in 2010) and numerous other magazines. After a two year break from stage and fitness competitions I came back to Tri Fitness (May 2013) placing 3rd in my division out of over 100 women and taking the overall Grace and Physique title!
Off of the stage I have a passion for CrossFit. I started in April of 2009 and have done nothing but CF since! In 2009 I competed at the Asia Regionals placing #2. In 2012 I placed 77th in the Mid Atlantic CrossFit Sectionals out of nearly 1,000 women. In 2013 I placed 3rd at the Hampton Roads Team Grit competition as a team of two women. I own CrossFit Unrivaled with my husband, Drew. We have been open since May 2011!
CrossFit pushes me in ways that I have never felt, physically and mentally and I am a stronger person because of both! My newest deadlift PR is 255! I am also proud of my 163 lb split jerk but am ready to get more over my head! Being strong doesn't mean you have to be bulky...and thats why I love to tell women how much I can lift because they look at my like "How? You are so small" and then I can say "Exactly, lifting doesn't make you bulky OR look like a man!"
Things I love:
My Sailor (my hubby), Snowboarding, Coconut Bliss Ice Cream (suits my Paleo sweet tooth), My two dogs; Allie and Leah (A Golden Retriever and a Lab), Pull ups, Walking on my hands, Split Jerks, Paleo Tacos (check out my blog www.primalwomeninthekitchen.blogspot.com), being a coach/gym owner and motivating people, watching people PR (succeed) their lifts or run times, X-Men Movies, Transformer Movies and Harry Potter books and movies!
I think there are positives and negatives to having a training partner. What I have experienced is that I work harder, and my training partners always push me harder than I push myself when I work out alone. But I have also noticed that when I have a training partner I tend to take longer rest periods because of too much chit chatting, then the entire work out takes up much more time! I have never been able to find a steady work out partner because 1) I am a trainer and I work weird hours 2) There aren't many girls that I know in my area who find weight training an enjoyable activity 3)I can't count on anyone but myself..."Sure I'll work out with you."..."Oh, I forgot I have to be somewhere"...people find every excuse in the book not to work out!!Read Full Article
Just wanted to give everyone a little post workout idea, if you haven't already tried it: Orange Gatorade mixed with vanilla protein powder, something low in fat and calories such as ON 100% whey....tastes like a orange creamcicle! mmmmm Another tasty one would be the protein powder mixed with natural apple sauce! Enjoy :)Read Full Article
Until my Oxygen Cover comes out!! On stands Nov 20th!! Get your copy :) Also...In a little less than 2 weeks I am competing in Bikini America in Hollywood. This will be my first event with FAP so I am excited and nervous! Training was MUCH different than I am used to since it's bikini I had to lay off the cardio so I am not AS lean as I am used to being for Tri-Fitness and NPC. Hopefully I step on that stage and I'm what they are looking for :) Wish me luck!! Jaquelyn KayRead Full Article
