How did you get started in the world of sport and fitness?
Because of my work schedule, at that moment I couldn’t go home and at lunch time I went to the gym, I started to continue, through social networks, competing girls and I dreamed of reaching that physical condition and being able to climb on a platform.
How do you think this is your greatest achievement so far? The moment you’re most proud of?
On a personal level, my greatest achievement has been to improve myself day after day physically and mentally without losing my enthusiasm and that has led me to become the absolute champion of Spain. I feel proud of my perseverance and perseverance because every time ¨he tropezado¨ I have stood up and continued to pursue my goal.
What is your exercise routine?
My daily routine consists of 2 parts, the cardiovascular part (bicycle, treadmill, elliptical, etc.) to which I devote an hour or so and the muscular part in the room (squats, weights, machines, etc.).
What are your 3 favorite exercises? For what reason?
What I like to train most is buttocks, shoulder and femoral. I like these muscle sets because the results are noticeable in a short time and they motivate me.
What is your favorite thistle training?
None, hahahaha?but if I had to choose, I would say that I would go up and down the stairs of the PRETORIAN (gym where I train).
What is your diet?
My diet is very balanced, lots of vegetables, source of protein, hydrates, vitamin supplements and from time to time a little whimsy (very occasionally), depends on whether I am in racing season or not, certain foods are limited such as dairy, very sugary fruits, etc?
What advice would you give to someone who wants to get started?
PATIENCE!!!!! This sport is a long-distance run, the rush does not bring anything good and the results should go little by little and above all, enjoy the road.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
The limits are only in your psyche, that prayer was affirmed to me by a person whom I admire very much, Cristina Pajares, champion of the Planet of Biquini Fitness.
How do you handle incidents or bad days?
My best support for those more difficult days is at home, with the help of my partner, Antonio Acantilado, who is also a contender and considerably simpler because he understands me perfectly.
Were you making mistakes when you started training?
I used to do unrest, haha, poorly executed exercises, excess weight? it is fundamental to have a good trainer nearby to guide you in the training that is convenient for your objective, in such a case – I am fortunate to have the best, Jesús Ruiz Jiménez (Team Pretorian). He gives 3 health tips that people can incorporate right now: Drink a lot of water, eat 5 times a day in a balanced way and practice daily exercise.
What would be your best tips for getting in shape and losing those last few pounds?
The most essential thing is the reduction of processed foodstuffs (industrial bakery, fried goods, etc.), not to abuse carbonated beverages and to sustain a healthy lifestyle.
What was your most entertaining moment at the gym?
There are many, but I remember something anecdotal that was very ¨divertido¨, after skipping the diet, my trainer hooked a dumbbell to my waist and made me go up and down the stairs in punishment mode while everyone laughed at me, including me.
Where does your motivation come from?
I believe that motivation must come from oneself and not depend on anything or anyone to achieve your goals.
What are your favourite fitness models? Do you have someone to inspire you?
The girls of the Eastern countries are a reference in these moments for their current achievements, but the one that really inspires me is one of Spain, Cristina Pajares, started from below and little by little she has been fulfilling her goals until arriving at a high level, thanks to her, today I can say that Dreams come true.
