Arnold Brasil Here I Come!!!

Posted Apr 21st, 2013


It is hard to believe that in just a couple of days, I'll be leaving for the first-ever Arnold Classic Brasil in Rio de Janeiro.  This will certainly be a trip of a lifetime and I feel so fortunate and blessed to be able to travel around the world competing in the sport I love.  To have received an invitation to this prestigious, inaugural event is truly an honor and an opportunity I am extremely grateful for.  The event will feature both professional men’s bodybuilding and women’s fitness sanctioned by the IFBB Pro League, as well as amateur bodybuilding and other sporting events.  There will also be a large scale health and fitness expo that is said to attract more than 35,000 attendees. 

The Arnold Sports Festival is one of the most highly regarded and revered sporting festivals in the world.  Last October, I had the privilege of travelling to Madrid, Spain for the Arnold Classic Europe and then to Columbus Ohio this past March for the Arnold Fitness International.  To be considered worthy of an invitation to step on the Arnold stage once again amongst a group of amazing athletes is validation for all the hard work I put into my training day in and day out.  This will be my first time travelling to South America and I plan to take in all the amazing culture Brasil has to offer.  I will definitely have to dust off my dancing shoes and take in a few Samba lessons!

I want to say thank you once again for all the love and support I have received from my family and friends.  A special shout out to my coach Mindi O’Brien, suit sponsor Sassy & Fit Boutique, Peak Performance Products Inc, Gymnastics Energy for allowing me to train at their facility, as well as Suntastic Tanning and Pro Tan Competition Color.  I am so fortunate to have such amazing support. 

Wish me luck, I will be sure to keep you posted!!!
