From skinny and unhealthy to WBFF Bikini World Champion
My journey is a little different to the ‘lose weight, get fit’ transformation story. I am not someone who has ever been overweight. I took things to the opposite extreme. I was skinny, exhausted and had an obsession with body image and being lean. This eventually took a toll on my health. My transformation is from being skinny, unhappy and unhealthy to being strong, confident and full of life.
Let me tell you aboutMY TRANSFORMATION
If we take a quick trip down memory lane, you’d see that I was a shadow of the woman I am today. I won’t lie - I was unhappy and unhealthy. My body fat percentage was extremely low, and I was constantly putting up with a mental battle day in and day out.
We are only limited byTHE SIZE OF OUR DREAMS
Countless hours were spent on the treadmill, I was undernourished, didn’t give my body the proper fuel it deserved and would ignore the advice from concerned family and friends. When it came to food, I thought less was more, and I became anxious when I missed training twice a day.
As you can imagine, my mental health, relationships, and physical health suffered. It had hit home that I needed to take a step back and work on myself from the inside out if I wanted to regain control of my life.
BECOMING WBFF BIKINI WORLD CHAMPION
In September of 2018, I was crowned WBFF Bikini World Champion - a dream of a lifetime. It took a lot of patience, consistency and trusting-the-process to get to where I wanted to be by the end of my prep phase - mentally and physically.
To be given the privilege of sharing the WBFF stage with some of the most beautiful and inspirational women on the planet was an incredible honour. And through Lauren Simpson Fitness, I have been lucky enough to share the physical, mental and emotional journeys with my clients from all over the globe. I am so grateful to have been blessed with a platform that allows me to spread female empowerment and love.
PASSION + HARD WORK = RESULTS
I’ve realised that no matter where I am in my fitness journey, it is always a learning curve for me and that there is unlimited potential to learn and grow. I turned what was an unhealthy obsession with appearance and weight into a fierce passion for bodybuilding. It’s not without hard work, innovation and dedication that will get you to your goals. This journey has taken me from being lethargic, unhappy, even lost, to a woman that is driven, motivated, energetic and healthy.
As a coach, my core beliefs revolve around mindset, consistency and discipline. With the correct training & nutrition, I was able to transform my shape. If I can do it...you can too! Today I aspire to promote female empowerment and positively impact the lives of girls from around the world.
This is a lifestyle to me and I genuinely LOVE to train and eat well to fuel my body. I indulge when the time is right, and I live to challenge myself daily. I try to approach each and every day with the goal of growth and learning.
THE ONLY PERSON YOU SHOULD
TRY TO BE BETTER THAN IS THE
PERSON YOU WERE YESTERDAY!
Life is unpredictable and you never know what is coming next, Don’t ever get too comfortable. Learn to get comfortable with the uncomfortable. That’s what I teach my team of #LSFbabes everyday. Don’t be afraid of a challenge. Challenge equals growth.
