My #wcw @oksanagrishina
This woman has been such an integral part of my growth these last 5 months. When we met met during our interview at the LA Fit Expo in January, she convinced me that even with only dance experience, I should try to compete in the #fitness division at my next show @npcwestcoast
I thought she was out of her mind, but when someone like Oksana offers you an opportunity like that, you jump on it.
Working with her to switch divisions has been the challenge of a lifetime. There were tons of moments when I just wanted to give up; When the fact that I am NOT a gymnast was VERY apparent and I found myself going crazy trying certain moves.
What I HAVE learned is that we don't need to worry about what we CAN'T do. We just do our best and focus on what we CAN do.
Thank you @oksanagrishina for believing in me even when I didn't. Thank you for pushing me past my limits and encouraging me to keep going. You are such an inspiration to millions of women around the world and I am more than blessed to not only have you as a coach but as a friend. #womancrushwednesday #mycoachisbetterthanyours #missfitnessolympia #missfitnessinternational #thebestofthebest #TeamOG #npcwestcoast
