....and here we go!

Welcome to my journey towards the May 5th, 2012 IFPA Pro Bowl!

I am going to be blogging every high and low of my contest prep for my IFPA Pro Figure debut. It has been about a year and half since I last competed, so while I am amped up to get things underway, I am also a little nervous because no matter how many times you take this ride there is always unexpected twists and turns along the way. This blog will include my diet, training, supplementation, progress pictures/measurements as well as all the random musings that go through my head during the process...Consider that a warning ;-)

I have great people in my corner who are integral parts to my journey...

First, my trainer/coach IFPA Pro Joe Franco.
Joe has guided me through all of my previous preps as well as my off season, so I have nothing but unwavering faith in him and his ability to bring me in at MY very best come show time. He will be making tweaks to my diet, cardio as well as training along the way...He does all the thinking and I just do as I am told :)

Second, Mike Carrubba and the fantastic team at Champion Nutrition.
Champion products have been a staple in my regime throughout my off season and will be a very important aspect to my contest prep as well.
I am proud to be a Champion Nutrition athlete and I look forward to bringing a champions made physique to the stage.

So, hop along for the ride on my crazy train....Here's to (just under) 18 weeks and counting!


  1. Good Luck with your Journey my friend! Thanks for sharing what it takes to be a Champion!
