WBFF Worlds 2021 Men’s Fitness Model Pro Champion Winning Performance

I’m not much of a crier but, my prep leading into WBFF Worlds was one the most difficult physical, mental & emotional challenges of my life.
Preparing to compete is a grueling process. Absolutely debilitating. Add self doubt and life unexpected and it can push you to the edge.
After prepping for 5 shows last year (pandemic cancelled) & finally competing/winning USA championship in Nov, I knew that I had to take it up yet another level to earn top honors at Worlds. Day by day I endured & felt was on track until “life” happened.
Meanwhile Caroline De Campos & I were trying to get pregnant to no avail. A few months out we started IVF. What an emotional rollercoaster. Ultimately we wound up with one healthy fertilized embryo for implantation. A true God send. I was invigorated & began channeling my future baby girl to power me through. Than, 3 weeks out Dad went to the ER & they had difficulty figuring out what was wrong. I wanted to rush home but after speaking to him & because we had so many clients also competing, I decided to stick it out. Unfortunately my dad remained questionable through the show & although I kept pushing though many sleepless nights, I questioned my decision heavily. Than 2 days out Caro’s grandfather passed away which was devastating. We did our best to put on a game face, take care of our clients & try to stay locked in, but I felt so physically and emotionally drained, I knew I needed help. I prayed channeling God, my father, Caro’s grandfather, my guardians and future baby girl to give me the strength to execute to my fullest potential and I needed every ounce of it. When I watch this video it literally brings tears to my eyes knowing what I was going though. Not just because I manifested a childhood dream of becoming a world champion, nor how difficult the road; but because of how blessed I feel that my friends and loved ones were there for me when I needed them most. It truly is magical and humbling to realize with the grace of God, support of many and the power of love, even the seemingly impossible is possible.
