Congratulations to this high caliber athlete for her first and successful top 5 finish at the Canadian Nationals Women’s Physique category. This is excellent for her first attendance at such a prestigious event. The highest in Canada that earns the class winners their pro cards.
I just finished having the pleasure of working with Lena as her trainer/coach as she prepared for this show! I was surprised when Lena approached me to take on this role, but I eagerly accepted the challenge. Her previous trainer and excellent bodybuilder Kristen McCarthy, had some personal business to attend to and couldn’t help so much this show, so I had a good pair of shoes to fill , as Kristen had done a fantastic job with Lena over their time! I’m confident in my abilities, but hadn’t trained clients for shows a bit of time. (see my success stories with some of the athletes I’ve worked with here on this blog). Same thing, I had personal life to attend to over the last few years. Well, it was like I never left! I loved the process of prepping a client for show, especially when they are as dedicated, disciplined, and gifted as Lena is! I like to work with my athletes as a team. We are in this together, and the goal is to be the best! Her transformation over 20 weeks was amazing, and she had clearly packed on some dense muscle! Combined with her lines and beautiful posing and stage presentation, Lena is surely a Winner yet to come! Lena is getting ready soon for another bout of physique battle. I will follow up with details soon or you can find her on https://www.instagram.com/lovendahouse
Very proud of you Lena, and Congrats once again! xo
