I decided to do blogs where I upload all kind of stuff. I will write a lot about training, do’s & dont’s, my thoughts in general about fitness, but also about me and my life.
Please don’t judge me for my English ;) I know it isn’t perfect at all but for now I will try to do my blogs in English.
First I want to tell you more about me. I born in Switzerland, Zurich, my mother language is Swiss German. I am currently around 58kg and 162cm tall.
Before I get into Fitness I was dancing. I started with ballet when I was 5 years old and did it for 10 years. It was the best decision so far, cuz thanks to ballet lessons I still have my flexibility and a good posture. After ballet, I took lessons in Jazz, Salsa, Hip Hop and Pole Dancing.
But one day I was at a point I wanted to change something. I wasn’t in a good mentally & physically condition. I was feeling flabby and not fit. And I was also diagnosed with a medical condition, so I started to take training more seriously. I was told from the doctor that I needed to start weightlifting to strengthen my neck and back. I started going to the gym regularly and changed my nutrition completely. Furthermore, I wanted to have a fit body with sexy curves. I wasn’t fat but not really fit, and I didn’t ate healthy at all.
I acquired my current knowledge through hard work, through own experiments, and with the help of personal trainers and coaches. In the beginning, I always failed, whether due to wrong advice from personal trainers or lack of motivation. I never gave up and after a while I started seeing results, got motivated, and became addicted to the fitness lifestyle.
One day I created a Facebook account just for fun and saw more and more that people like what I am doing. So, I continued and tried to motivate people with my own process.
Soon I was at Fibo in April 2015 with my sponsor @Bodyengineersofficial, a lot people asked me how I get a sponsor like Bodyengineers but I would say, I was just at the right place at the right moment and of course I also worked hard for it..
Straight after Fibo I had a really bad illness. One day to another my condition worsens increasingly. I had some problems to breath (I thought it’s because I ate too much) so I went to the hospital to do a checkup. The doctors gave me a lot of laxatives but nothing happened. So they just left my in hospital for control. Next day my lung was full of water. Diagnose: double pneumonia! The doctors put me into a coma. Because I was not able to breath on my own. It was planned to put me into a coma for 2 days but at the end it was 2 weeks, as the doctors didn't find the right medicament for me. My condition was very bad, additionally I had enduring problems with my heart (pericarditis, myocarditis) and my intestine was not working for 2 weeks. I lost more than 10kg and all my muscles – I even needed to learn how to sit and walk, wasn’t able to do anything. I started again from the beginning. It's like a miracle, I survived this infection. God gave me a second life and I'm thankful about this!
Because of what happened to me I completely changed. I broke up with my boyfriend and just wanted to do what makes me happy and don’t overthink everything.
Next I did, was a bikini competition. I always said to me I will never do this, but I got to a point where I needed a new challenge and I wanted to see if I would have this discipline to compete. I just did a two months prep for the IFBB Int. Cup and IFBB Swiss Championship. The result of it was 3rd place at Int. Cup and 1st place at IFBB Swiss Championship. It was a good experience for me but more about competition in another blog ;)
I also began to travel a lot. Only last year I was already in Thailand, Morocco, Dubai, Amsterdam, Germany and France. I just realized how beautiful this world is and this made me hungry to see more. At this time, I still had a job in an office as an assistant. Therefore, my vacations were completely used but I still had the desire to see more. So I decided to quit my job and take full risk and go to USA, Los Angeles. I was never in USA but I wanted to explore it for 2 month and see if I like it. So now I am still here and I think I won’t take my return flight anymore…I LOVE L.A. and I finally feel HOME…
