Biography

Education

Born and raised in Nova Scotia (Canada), Robin grew up with a keen interest in fitness. After seeing numerous fitness models online, she was amazed by their figures and what the human body was capable of.

As a result, in 2012, Robin made the decision to study a degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. During her time at college, she gained an expansive knowledge on nutrition and human metabolism.

Ultimately, it was during this period that Robin began her fitness journey. With the right tools to succeed, she set her sights on sculpting her dream figure.

The Canadian found weight-lifting as the perfect escape from the stresses of education – as well as improving her confidence in her appearance.

Powerlifting & Bodybuilding

Three years after embarking on her fitness journey, Robin had managed to achieve a lean and strong figure – as well as completing her degree.

Robin’s training in the gym had led to her being inspired to compete as a powerlifter; she wasted no time and entered the 2015 Canadian Powerlifting Nationals shortly afterwards.

Although she didn’t have her dream start to her powerlifting career, Robin left the show with a respectable silver medal. This gave her the motivation she needed to pursue success – both as a powerlifter and bodybuilder.

Only a year later, Robin entered the 2016 OCB New York Stats Natural show – placing 2nd in her debut competition as a figure competitor.

“Ever since IIFYM, my life has seriously changed. I don’t have panic attacks going out to eat, I don’t have fear foods. It’s amazing.”

Nutrition

In terms of her diet, Robin is quite flexible; she allows herself to eat foods that she enjoys – following the IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) plan. She believes that moderation is key, and that IIFYM is key to sustaining a healthy eating pattern.

For this reason, she doesn’t follow any strict weekly meal plans.

However, she credits the fitness industry and all competitors for inspiring her to achieve a similar figure. Also, Robin names her followers on social media as great sources of motivation – their support constantly fuels her to succeed and push through her limitations.
