“I would do several trainings in the beginning, but it has been 5-6 years that I do body building, I didn’t think I would enjoy it so much. Most girls believe that bodybuilding ruins their bodies and that they will gain weight. But you build yourself up in this sport and work with your own body. Other than that, there is yoga, TRX, and other sports related to bodybuilding that are very useful. I am currently a level 3 trainer, but I would like to work more and achieve more so that I can be useful for my friends and surrounding. I always share stories and posts about sports on my Instagram account and most of my friends say they have found it useful. Even people who did not work out before, do so now because of my work. Wherever I am, in the fields, travels, or even visiting, I make use of the smallest time I have to record learning videos and pictures for my page”.

“Most people think that if girls play sports, their behaviors will be like men’s, but it is not like that. I have a sensitive soul and I am in my feminine skin with feminine feelings. I have often worked harder than my male friends to stand on my own feet, but I haven’t gotten much results for all that effort. I now study physical education so that I can gain more expertise and become scientific in my work so that I can better help the people who come to me and to not stop at one point. I want everyone to exercise for better health and a happier life”.
