LAURAGONZYYY

I started competing in fitness events in 2013. It was actually a charity competition and I ended up winning. After that, I signed up for every competition I heard about and haven’t stopped since.

I started training here in Miami shortly after moving from Venezuela. I was actually in recovery after being diagnosed with anorexia. Training saved my life. Since I was little I have been an athlete. My parents and older brothers have always been very active and have given me that example. Being of a large frame I was always strong and a bit big compared to the children around me. They called me “fat”, “man” and “sausage legs” because I was strong and had thick legs and that caused many insecurities in me that I began to change how I saw myself through diets and exercises and it became harmful to my health . 

I lost a lot of weight to the point where I couldn’t sit down because my bones were hurting. Bathing was horrible because even with boiling water I felt cold. I got pretty dizzy, couldn’t think straight and was always cold. I missed my period for over a year and was not allowed to do any physical activity.

Finding my passion in cross-discipline fitness changed my life completely. It gave me confidence in myself again and gave me a dream to fight for.

It made me want to become the best version of myself. I am most proud of learning how to manage my eating disorders, and acknowledging that asking people for help doesn’t make you weak. 

On the other hand I am very proud of competing at the Games. Not because of my performance there, but because I set a goal for myself and didn’t stop working until I made it happen. 

My favorite Lycan gear is definitely my dumbbells. I LOVE dumbbell workouts. I love that they require greater stabilization which in turn, activates more muscle fibers. They also allow for unilateral training which makes over-compensation impossible allowing us to identify and eliminate strength imbalances.

This fitness community  has given me friendships that have turned into family.
