Pricilla Aquila has always had a dream body. Although her high school peers mocked her for having an oversized butt, she never paid attention to such comments. However, she had a younger sister to whom she wanted to set an example, and this motivated her to start training actively.
Through years of hard work, she surpassed what she had originally planned and became a fitness model with an amazing figure.
"It's a long and arduous road to achieving a goal, but the hardest days are when you want to give up, days like that motivate you to persevere."
Pricilla used a mix of strength training and cardio to achieve her transformation. This included not only exercises like squats, but also numerous trainings on the racetrack.
In addition to consistent daily workouts at the gym, Pricilla also invests a lot of time in planning, preparing and monitoring her diet.
She loves to eat carbs early in the day and before exercising. This supplies her muscles with the glycogen needed for energy. On the other hand, she eats protein and fat later in the day and evening. This ensures a slow release of nutrients throughout the night so that these nutrients properly nourish the muscles while sleeping.
None of her success would have been possible without the support of friends, family, coaches and fans, Pricilla said. She is grateful to everyone who supported her on her fitness journey. He tries to motivate his fans to persevere in the idea of success.
What we can learn from Pricilla is that sometimes in life you will face negativity or criticism from others. Instead of letting them destroy you, why not use them as a motive to strengthen and achieve your goals?
Took the day off today, visiting my family in NYC. We all watched a couple of movies last night, ate lots of food, made breakfast together and that’s the good thing that happened to me this weekend: family time. So very grateful for it! 🙏🏻

My primary form of cardio has always been sprints and running. To be honest, I’m just over running after years and years of doing it daily. Lifting is great, but I feel like I’m in the best shape when I’m adding in cardio. I move through my workouts quicker, & take way less breaks.
I love the music & it’s so interactive so it works amazing for me. You gotta do what you gotta do to reach your goals!
Amy Lee is a very driven outgoing person who is very passionate about what she does. She has been successful in many different industries such as being a published international model and now a Pro Bodybuilding Athlete.
Fitness and sports has played a huge part of my life from a young age. I have always been athletic and had a very active lifestyle. I started lifting weights when I was 19 years old, I really enjoyed the way it made me feel. I felt strong and a sense of achievement by pushing myself to lift heavier, do more reps or increase my intensity. I couldn’t believe how much I could change the shape of my body by the training techniques I was doing. Suddenly I was hooked!
"I wanted to be the best version of myself I could be and started to make lifestyle changes to make that happen. I started drinking more water, changing my nutrition and prioritised my health.
I started to gain a lot more confidence in myself, not only with training but within myself and everything I did. I was able to try new things, meet new people and have the confidence to put myself out there.
I feel that everyone out there can be as happy as I am if they are willing to try."
This is the reason I wanted to become more involved in the fitness industry and by creating my fitness App I feel I can helping others to reach there goals and life a healthy happy lifestyle.

If you’re currently struggling with your weight or health, here’s what I want you to know⤵️
I can remember a time in my life when I thought chronic stomach pains was my destiny, and that I just had to accept that way of life. That I would never be “shapely”, or be happy with myself. Until, I was diagnosed with Celiac. This was difficult to learn, but also relieving because now I understood, there was a reason! I had an imbalance in my body, which could be improved with work.
It has been 10 years since my diagnosis. It has been 8 years since I started working on my mindset. It has been 4 years since I started going to the gym. It has been 3 years since I really started taking my nutrition seriously.
I want you to know that there’s a root cause to everything. If you keep searching, you will find it. Once you can understand the imbalances in your body (gut, hormones, nutrients, mindset, etc), measures can be taken to bring your body back to equilibrium - back to health!
