Usually everyone needs a little inspiration now and then. San Antonio native bodybuilder Yolanda Jung is no exception to that rule.
Her eye was on the accomplishments of pro bodybuilder, Cory Everson who started her career in the 1980’s. Yolanda was impressed with how Everson won one competition after another. Everson wasn’t the first woman in bodybuilding, but certainly set a great example for novices and experts alike to follow the same path of great achievements.
Using Everson as an example, Yolanda was amazed at what the human body could be molded and shaped into with determination, perseverance, and a lot of hard work. She decided she was going to move out of her comfort zone and become a bodybuilder.
Yolanda won 1st place at her first ever competition in 2005. It was the Masters All Natural Show in El Paso, Texas.
1st Place Four Times in 2010 Event
Once bodybuilding becomes a way of life, there is no turning back. Her last win was impressive at the 2010 National Physique Committee with 1st in Novice, Open, Masters, and Overall.
Bodybuilding for Yolanda is no longer just a dream, but a way of thinking, eating, breathing, and training.
Yolanda says, “I am motivated by knowing what you can actually accomplish when you set goals for yourself. What you can actually see when your body changes. It is a beautiful and amazing thing.”
She has seen people do the same repetitive routine in the gym day after day, week after week, month after month. Before you know it the years have gone by and their bodies don’t look any different.
If you have decided to take the time to work out, Yolanda believes that diet and supplementation has to be a part of that equation. Otherwise, you are wasting your time and won’t see results.
Balance nutrition and working out
What you eat and what you do with your body goes hand in hand. They have to work together to meet whatever goal you set for yourself.
You may be thinking that you will never look like Yolanda. The thing is, how will you know if you never try? Educate yourself, be motivated, expect days when you want to give up, but don’t.
For those you that say, “Well, there just isn’t any time in my schedule to dedicate to start exercising or training for anything,” Yolanda is starting a new chapter in her life with years of experience as a hair stylist. She has a full time occupation along with her devotion to body building.
