My fitness journey began as a much-needed wake-up call. I had just left university and became prone to the stereotypical life of a partying teenager. I would spend most of my time drinking socially in clubs and bars, and so became less physically active. Slowly but surely, I became extremely unhealthy. I was in a rut and decided to enroll myself in a personal training course to try and reignite my passion for fitness. I had always been extremely athletic through high school and had danced and played competitive sports most of my life, and I wanted to try to get back on the right track. I studied for two years and through my studies I regained my confidence and knowledge of nutrition and training. I made some drastic lifestyle changes, traded in my high heels for trainers, and never looked back.
I met my partner shortly after who was an accomplished bodybuilder, and he showed me an amazing perspective, which was that our bodies are potential masterpieces that we have the ability to shape and mould. I became in awe of the men and women who competed in bodybuilding and fitness modelling and I knew this is what I wanted to achieve for myself. I studied nutrition and training and became dedicated to competing in my first show. This is where I first learned the importance of supplementation and I became a regular user and lover of everything MuscleTech®! I still remember the overwhelming feeling of bringing home a trophy from my first show, and I got to relive that pride for my second competition where I placed again. The competing season was over but my journey had only just begun. I had a new passion and new goals set for the year to come.
What motivates me is a love of training, a love of the stage and the feeling I get stepping on stage knowing what I have achieved through hard work and dedication. Being a part of Team MuscleTech® is truly a dream come true because I am a firm believer in MuscleTech® products and know that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the supplements and motivation they provide. The best of the best represent MuscleTech® and they are a true representation of the highest quality products for the highest quality athletes. I have all the confidence in the world that now with the best brand in athletic performance supporting me through my journey, I can and will bring my A game and make the world see why MuscleTech® athletes are a step above the rest.
Q & A WITH DANIELLE
How has MuscleTech® helped you reach your goals?
MuscleTech® supplies absolutely everything I need and rely on to assist with optimal growth, strength, energy and recovery for my training and diet. It’s hard to pick just one thing that I love above the rest as every supp plays such an important role individually!
Favorite MuscleTech® supplement and why?
I’m a huge fan of the MuscleTech® Performance Series as it has everything you need for optimal performance results (named very appropriately!). Whether you’re just starting out or an advanced athlete, this range will provide everything you need and doesn’t disappoint when it comes to taste and quality.
What is your favorite exercise(s)?
I go through stages of different body parts I favor for training. Close to my shows when I become extremely lean I love training my back as I get extremely defined in this area and enjoy seeing my progress. But overall I absolutely love training legs and glutes. I have a day for hammys, quads and glutes as I like to isolate the muscles to push them to their limits.
What is your favorite body part to train?
My favorite body part to train is my back.
