I was always an active person, going to the gym 5 days a week and playing on various sports teams for fun. However, I had food sensitivity issues, I was not in the shape I wanted to be in. I didn’t know what I was doing wrong – after all I was very active and eating “healthy”, even if I was grinding away at my desk job 8-14 hours a day (depending on the season). So I set a personal goal to compete in a fitness competition. I was referred to Endurance on 8th, by a friend and hit it off with Dr. Wendy right away. She was knowledgeable and tailored my meal plans specific to my food sensitivity issues, as I have a several dietary restrictions which I realize now were causing me to be bloated, have inflammation, and left me feeling overall rundown. I wasn’t sure I would be able to achieve my goal with no whey proteins, no dairy, no gluten, and being allergic to tree products (nuts, certain spices … especially pepper), but Dr. Wendy was able to create an effective meal plan taking into consideration all my restrictions. While there were times, I was envious of some of the foods other people got to eat during their fitness prep, I knew sticking to my plan was the best thing for my health!

I fell in love with the lifestyle: the training, meal prep (even though some days were tough) and the friends I made during the process. I competed at the NPAA Canada Championships, placing 4th in Bikini tall and 6th in Fitness tall in my second show. I’m continuing to train and I’m embracing the “off-season” or muscle building phase, with the goal of competing again in the future.

Thank-you for believing in me Dr. Wendy!
