Biography

Recovering Health Issues

Back in 2012, Bella began to realize her health was “going downhill”. As Bella said; “It was due of the amount of junk food I used to eat and living a sedentary lifestyle.”

Bella used to eat a high cholesterol diet, and suffered form recurring kidney stone issues during this unhealthy period. Deep down, bella knew she needed to take better care of herself. Bella recalls;

“I can still remember my first day at the gym. It was really hard to step out of my comfort zone but I knew I was making the right choice.”

After a lot of trial and error, along with consistent gym sessions, where bella pushed past all of her boundaries, she began to feel the many benefits of working out and eating a healthy diet. Her weight came down, her kidney stone issues disappeared, and her energy levels went through the roof.

At this point in her journey, Bella decided to take things one step further. That’s when she decided to obtain her personal training certificate, wising to help other people achieve the same as herself.

Becoming A Personal Trainer

During this transition, Bella stated the following; “I read many science based books and educated myself on the basics of nutrition and physical activity. I worked really hard to earn my personal trainer certification and obtained my degree in Nutrition Science.”

“It was a really long road but every step, every mile was worth the effort.”

After a lot of hard work, in which Bella says; “a really long road”, she finally managed to reach her ‘peak‘ – Bella competed in two major fitness competitions.

To her surprise, Bella won first place in both of these early competitions. Since this swift victory in her fitness career, Bella has made it her mission to spread the word of fitness around the globe through social media – Bella succeed in her mission, becoming an internet sensation in the process.

Raising A Family

Even though Bella has since raised a family, where giving birth to her daughter put a huge strain on her body, she still managed to “bounce back”. To this day, Bella remains consistent on her path towards living a healthy lifestyle, while helping others along the way. In Bella own words;

“Now, with my knowledge and experience, I want to help other’s achieve their dream bodies too. Most importantly, to just be happy and comfortable in their own skin.”


 

“Remember that in order to achieve what you have never achieved before, you must do the things you have never done before.”.

Training

Bella focuses her workouts around “slow moves, less reps and more weight”. She believes this is the most effective approach for her, splitting her week into four days of weight lifting, with three rest days. 

For her abdominal definition, Bella likes to complete a 30 minute plank and crunch workout three times a week. Before competing, she increases the intensity of these workouts; usually including an extra four High Intensity Interval Training sessions in the week.
