How did you get started on the planet of sport and fitness?

Since I was very young I have always been very passionate about sports, I have led a very active life on a physical level, be it in sports or in areas related to dance. I received the necessary studies in different genres of dance disciplines and dedicated myself to it, making it my profession. With the time I have left it aside a bit, since I could not dedicate a good amount of time to it due to my career with what I began to be more interested in the sports among them the climbing, the diving and the fitness at competition level, I saw that with a good diet and following a daily training plan, I would achieve the proposed objectives, apart from that with this I would achieve an improvement in my sports performance and physical quality. I love this sport and nowadays I live it as a way of life, striving every day to progress and setting new goals to achieve.

What do you think is your greatest achievement so far? The moment you're most proud of?

Without a doubt, the return to repeat for the second consecutive year the title of absolute bikini champion in Spain. I'm proud to see how far I've come not only nationally, but also in international tournaments, being always and in every circumstance in the Top Three.

What is your exercise routine?

It is divided into 2 stages, one dedicated to muscle development based on high intensity training aimed at hypertrophy, focusing mainly on the leg and buttock area. The other stage is the definition stage, a month before the competition, in which I usually spend more time on cardio and I do series to many repetitions.

What are your three favorite exercises? For what reason?

Squats, strides and buttock kicks.

What is your favorite cardio training?

Going for a run makes me crazy. If I can, I usually do it outdoors for about forty-five minutes, if I don't use the treadmill.

What is your diet?

I have 2 stages, one of maintenance focused on the muscular development of the areas that I need to progress allowing me some whims. It's quite varied:

  • Cereals
  • Legumes
  • Meat
  • Fish and Seafood
  • Fruit

And the pre-competition stage where I have a more controlled and rigorous low in carbohydrates.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to get started?

The beginning is the hard part, but you must never doubt yourself. You have to keep your face forward no matter what they say. It is the possibility of achieving a dream that makes life interesting. Try to enjoy what you do day by day, the key is not to see it as an obligation but as a personal improvement. It's all in our psyche, nothing's impossible. We just have to work hard and wait for the results to come in.

What's the best advice you've ever been given?

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE, FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS AND FIGHT FOR THEM. Undoubtedly, my mother has always and under all circumstances made me trust myself.

How do you handle incidents or bad days?

Well, I suppose there are always bad days and at all times there are, but when you have a goal in your head, you draw strength from within not to fall, but rather to keep your face forward. In the end, everything has its rewards.

Were you making mistakes when you started training?

If like any hehe, we've all ever needed help. Especially in many exercises where it is essential to have someone giving us support in the technique and proper implementation.

He gives three health tips that people can incorporate right now:

  1. Drink plenty of water, about three litres a day minimum.
  2. The key is in the quantities, it's not just about eating healthy, it's about giving your body the energy it needs.
  3. Spice up your meals, it's a way to spice up your meals and don't become monotonous and listless. Try new things.

What would be your best tips for getting in shape and losing those last few pounds?

You have to be incessant and have willpower, put a purpose and focus on it. This will make it easier to follow the diet. Do cardiovascular exercise at least three times a week, and spend at least a couple of days in the woof room to strengthen.

Where does your motivation come from?

I am a very competitive person, always and in all circumstances I have liked to be the best at what I like. Winning a medal makes me feel like I've done things right and that's why I fight and continue to fight and keep my face forward. Self-improvement is what is essential.
