Today I speak with IFBB Pro Gina Switzeny a lifelong athlete who started lifting after graduating university. She struggled with her weight in high school and university due to never having proper guidance on health and nutrition. In 2008, she started working with a nutritionist who taught her about meal planning and macros. In 2011, she entered a fitness model contest where she saw Bikini athletes who were competing that day. From that moment on, she knew that was what she wanted to look like. She competed in her first show in 2012 and competed consistently for the next 10 years. Finally in 2022, she won her Pro Card at the IFBB Natural Pro Qualifier after winning the Overall Masters Bikini 35+. She is a virtual personal trainer and nutrition coach. Gina wants to help the general population find a way to prioritize their health and fitness.


Gina says, “There were so many highs and lows, but I was determined and stuck to it, and thus was able to continue to improve and finally win. To me it's been about the journey and falling in love with the process of improving yourself over time. Too many people think of health and fitness as an all or nothing pursuit, but to me that is the wrong mindset. It's about choosing to do better everyday, which little by little brings you closer to your goals.”


Topics covered include:
-compete as a lifestyle.
-body image issues for competitors
-loving the process
-moving on from failure
-having support from her husband
-staying close to stage weight
-improving every day
-goals for the Pro stage
