In January 2014, I won the title of Oklahoma’s Perfect Cheerleader Miss. I was told that my national pageant would be at Delray Beach, Florida during the end of June. I knew that I was going to need to make a change if I wanted to perform my best at nationals and I also knew it had to start in the kitchen.
One of my good friends had been doing physique prep for a bit so I asked her how she knew what to do, and that’s when she told me about Umo. I contacted 180Physique that day and was instantly impressed by Umo’s quick response and enthusiasm to help me out. I went up to see her that next week and my new journey had officially begun!
I was a competitive gymnast for 10 years and switched to cheerleading after I retired from gymnastics. Even though I continued cheering during my first few years of college, I just wasn’t happy with myself. I gained weight, lost muscle, and had lost all self-esteem. Nothing really seemed to fill the void that quitting gymnastics caused until I found CrossFit.
I began taking CrossFit classes in August 2013 and absolutely fell in love with it. It is the first thing I’ve been passionate about since I quit gymnastics. Even though training every day helped me to get back on the path I wanted to be on, it still wasn’t enough. I knew my diet needed to be changed drastically and it wasn’t until my opportunity to compete in the national pageant for America’s Perfect Cheerleader that I decided to take that serious next step.
Umo sent me my first meal plan and I never looked back! Here I stand at age 22, and I am the happiest I have been since I was 15 years old. I’m confident in myself, my CrossFit performance has increased significantly, and my overall health is on the perfect path. I am beyond grateful for Umo and 180Physique because she truly changed my life for the better. I would honestly recommend her for anyone wanting to better their health, increase their fitness, or look good in a swimsuit.
Umo is easy to work with and truly cares about her clients. Every time I talk to her, I can tell she genuinely wants to know how I’m feeling and if there is anything else she can do to help me out on my meal plan. She’s really good about changing things up when I need it and always knows what to adjust when I have a concern. I am in the best shape and health I have been in since I retired from gymnastics at 15. Thanks to 180Physique, I know I have many years ahead of me to look forward to.
