I Thought I Was Done!

DSC_9859” I thought I was done”. These are the very words I said out loud as I decided to start my competition prep last month.  Last time I was on stage was two years ago and I was happy with the outcome. I placed first in Masters and 2nd in Open. Then why do I find myself in prep once again?

I think it’s the power that competition prep gives me, the power to have control over your body….instead of your body having control over you.

The combination of training hard and a structured diet produces amazing results, so amazing you feel the need to display your work on stage. I don’t feel that when I compete, that I am up against the other women standing on stage with me, at least that’s not my mindset. I compete against myself; the woman who has had 2 kids, has to juggle her busy schedule to get those workouts in, and the woman who has to say “no” to the food temptations that most people eat on a daily basis. In a world where women are seen as fragile and sometimes even suffer from low self esteem, it is empowering to train for a competition. The training makes you physically stronger, the diet makes you disciplined and the makeup and sparkles make you feel absolutely beautiful. I, for one, would like to set an example for women and young girls out there. You CAN have abs after 30!!!! You CAN have strength to whip out 20 pushups at anytime!!! You don’t actually need to train for a competition to achieve these results, that is just a personal choice for me. The process puts me in a whole different mindset and I enjoy doing it, so why not, let’s do another show….or two!

Muscle Bombshell had to opportunity of sitting down an interviewing this powerhouse fitness expert. Check out what she had to say.

I am a mom of three boys ages nine, seven, and five, a personal trainer, fitness model pro with the INBA (PNBA), Fitness & Lifestyle Expert, and Entrepreneur and Co-founder of Wholistic Body-Building & Wellness in Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada. I have a Bachelor of Nursing Science and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Nursing, which, as a personal trainer, helps me to better, understand the human body and its systems. I train people to push past their limits and celebrate their successes.   After having three difficult pregnancies and gaining 60lbs+ of weight, I really strived to find a balance between nutrition and fitness. I struggled for years to find that balance in life. It wasn’t until I decided to take my fitness regimen to the next level and compete did I really learn the key to this balance…food and fitness. I began to teach others that being healthy is not about dieting, or just going to the gym, but it’s about adapting a healthy lifestyle to maintain youthfulness and longevity. My belief is that your fitness is highly influenced by your inner health. If you are not healthy on the inside you will have a difficult time developing your outer fitness.   I started competing in fitness competitions in 2012 and accomplished a lot during that time, including becoming a Pro Sports Model. I have been featured in Inside Fitness Hot & Fit 100, Future of Fitness in Oxygen magazine, am a current contributor to WatchFit (a U.K. app), write articles for various blogs, and also help people prep for competition preparations with Ian Walling.   I believe that people want to be motivated and just need to be guided in the right direction. I train people in a “w”holistic manner, involving every facet of their life into their training regime. I believe that every day we are given a fresh start, which brings us one step closer to our dreams and passions; so we should live our lives to the fullest and work on accomplishing those dreams.   Follow her journey as she inspires the world to be real, fit and happy! http://robinaabramson.com/
