LIVE OUTSIDE THE COMFORT ZONE
In her first time training with BWX Sports nutrition, Sylvia Bucknell finished second at the BCABBA (British Columbia Amateur Bodybuilding Association) Provincial Championships, qualifying her to compete in Canada’s national championship. “I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Body Wise for the top quality supplements that helped me achieve far beyond my previous best physique,” she tells us.
"I am very passionate about competing in figure because I love the challenge it presents to my body and my mind,” says Sylvia, who trains four to six days a week all year long, constantly striving for her personal best. Through all the squats, crunches and lifts she stays focused by reminding herself: “Your comfort zone is where you rest, not where you live.”
During the 12 weeks before a competition, Sylvia trains up to 20 hours each week. That’s on top of the workout she gets as a personal trainer and busy mom of two young children.
What’s her secret? “Proper nutrition and supplementation are essential for the changes in my physique,” she explains. “Body Wise Extreme Sports Nutrition increases my ability to recover and keep my immune system strong, as well as keep my energy up.”
Training for figure is not just about physical training, the mental training is a huge component. Sylvia likes challenging herself to see where the changes in her body, mental strength and determination can take her.
