Fitness Amateur Of The Week: Jill Fortified Her Figure Physique!

Vital Stats

QHow did your fitness
journey begin?

I’ve always been athletic and was very involved in high school sports. After high school, life slowed down and I got out of shape. I didn’t lead a healthy lifestyle and ate poorly. I decided to make changes, got a gym membership, and quickly fell in love with working out. My friend was impressed with my drive in the gym and suggested that I compete because fitness came naturally to me. My first competition was in November 2010. I took third place and was instantly hooked on the competition life.

What fitness regimen delivered the best results?

I lift heavy six days per week. I train shoulders twice per week and glutes three times per week. I train abs 2-3 times per week in the offseason and increase the intensity during competition prep. For abs, I pick 3-4 different exercises and do four sets of each. I switch up exercises for variety. In the offseason, I do three HIIT cardio sessions per week that involve sprints or plyometrics. I increase the cardio as I get closer to a competition.

My current program uses periodization. I used Jim Stopani’s Shortcut to Size as a guideline and tweaked it to fit my goals. I cycle different rep ranges weekly that include 12-15, 9-11, 6-8, and 3-5 reps.

“I lift heavy six days per week.”

What nutrition plan fueled your body?

I eat clean year-round and stay away from sugar and processed foods. I’m currently in my offseason and stick to a 40 percent protein, 40 percent carbohydrate, and 20 percent fat ratio. I have one cheat meal per week.

 

What supplements gave you an edge?

“The capabilities of the human body fascinate me.”

What aspects about fitness fascinate you?

The capabilities of the human body fascinate me. When I set a goal, watch changes occur, and build strength, I’m taken aback at the amazing process.

What/Who motivates you to live a healthy lifestyle?

I’m motivated to live healthy because of the way it makes me feel physically and mentally. I didn’t always live healthy. I’m now more energetic, happier, and motivated than ever. I love having a positive impact and inspiring others to live a healthy lifestyle.

Where did you go for inspiration?

I love seeing progress with each competition. I always take progress pictures and am fascinated at the changes that happen to my body. Seeing how far I came is motivating and makes me push harder. I have a great group of people in my life who are a source of support and inspiration.

What are your future fitness plans?

I plan to continue competing and working to attain my pro card. I’m currently in the offseason and am working to improve so I can transition from bikini to figure. My next competition will be in 2014. I want to become a full-time trainer and competition coach to inspire others.

What is the most important fitness tip?

Dieting is the key. Without a clean, proper diet, you will not see results from your hard work.

Who is your favorite fitness competitor?

Dana Linn Bailey represents beauty and strength. She’s strong and feminine. I love watching her on stage and look at her photos for motivation. She has an amazing physique and personality. She’s funny, humble, genuine, and always takes time for her fans.

How did Bodybuilding.com help you reach your goals?

Bodybuilding.com is where I get the majority of my supplements. I’ve been a BodySpace user for three years. It’s a good way to network and track progress. I enjoy the articles, recipes, and workouts. The exercise directory is an amazing tool. I go to Bodybuilding.com for new workout ideas and incorporate them into my program.

👉🏼 Don’t make it your goal to be fit....
Make it your goal to be disciplined and being fit will follow. Being fit reflects hard work, you can’t obtain it without patience, passion and practice. You can’t inherit it.. You can’t borrow it.. You can’t hold on to it without constant dedication. Exercise to be the best version of YOU!! Eat to be healthy and nourish your body. Along the way.. Ignore the haters, the doubters, the nay-sayers and the unhealthy examples that were once feeding you. Always remember the same water that softens the potato, hardens the egg. It’s about what you’re made of! Let self motivation run through your veins... Now let’s do this! 😤

For me, my motivation comes from within.
I am a non-stop learner, non-stop experimenter, non-stop quencher of my curiosities, and a non-stop yearner to become better as a person. Life is about finding your passion and living within that dream! My passion is to improve the lives of others, by giving people the tools to boost their self-confidence, to learn how to live a healthy lifestyle and to chase their own dreams without the thought of fear or failure. My motivation comes from within but is boosted by my surroundings. You are who and what you surround yourself with. So hang around people who make you hungry for life, touch your heart and nourish your soul. Ultimately you are who you choose to be. You are not what happened to you in the past.. so let go. YOU ARE NOW! You are in this very moment. What will you do with it.. Who will you choose to become..
