My success story began in early December 2008 when Tracy’s impressive physique caught my eye from across the gym. She looked like someone who knew a thing or two about training and nutrition, and since I had set my sights on competing in a figure contest that summer, I decided to introduce myself and maybe get a few pointers. I was thrilled when she told me that she could help prepare me for my first show. From then on, Tracy, an IFBB pro bodybuilder, became my inspiration.

It was only a week before I saw and felt a difference in my body with the nutrition plan that Tracy designed for me. I was shocked when I dropped three pounds within the first two weeks. I was already working out religiously, but I began to notice results in my weaker areas after Tracy made some corrections to my form. My dream of competing finally seemed within my reach!

I cannot even begin to tell you how much Tracy helped me as the date of my show approached. She covered everything from my diet and supplementation, training, posing, tanning, and every little detail that goes into a figure competition, which I know I would have overlooked. She even taught me how to wear lipstick! When I stepped on stage for the first time, I did not feel like a beginner. I knew that my physique was right on target, and I felt confident, polished, and professional.

Apparently, the judges thought so too, because I took first place at the NPC Junior California teen figure division, and fifth place in the “b” class…conquering both of my goals! It was the happiest day of my life, and aside from the hard work and dedication it takes to compete, I can honestly say that I owe it all to Tracy, who prepared me mentally and physically for my first show. Tracy was truly there for me every step of the way. I would strongly urge anyone looking to compete or to get in the best shape of their life to let Tracy guide you in your transformation.

Best of luck to all,
