"I've never been the biggest, fastest or the strongest so I've always had to think outside the box."
"There’s a trend with everybody trying to compete with what they see on social media. That brings a pressure to be like somebody else. We all have our own body type and with that comes a set of unique individual goals. The goal should never be to look like someone else; it needs to be about feeling good about who you are."
"When people think 'workout,' they think 'horrible.' It's a matter of switching your mindset. You can [always] find ways to keep your workouts fun.”
