Profile Information

My real full name is:
Nataliya Govdyak
This is what I do:
In 2011, I began competing in
National Figure and Bikini Bodybuilding Divisions. By that time I
already graduated from Keller Graduate School of Management with my MBA
and had a lot of free time.

I joined gym in October 2009.
Since I already had a problem with my lower back, I didn’t want to make
it worse by doing something wrong. I decided to get a Personal Trainer
to help me out to recover my health with no harm to myself. I am lucky I
got assigned with great trainer.

I was dedicated, motivated,
extremely discipline and results started showing. Besides health
improvement, I started losing weight. When I first started to train, I
was 176lb and 25% body fat. I lost 6in in my waist in first 5 weeks. And
that was just a beginning.

Even though my main reason to work
out with personal trainer was health issue, I always wanted to be an
athlete and NPC National level competitor. I was afraid even to tell it
to someone, because I never believed I can do it. One day I shared my
dream with my trainer. Consider my results and my dedication; he
convinced me that I can make my dream come true. I started training even

My trainer convinced me to send an application for my
first competition, yet I was thinking and even telling him that I am
still not ready. It was one of the biggest fears in my life. I am glad I
listened to him, not to my fear.

It took me 19 months of training and
dieting since I first joined gym in October 2009 to the first
competition in May 2011. I placed second and got qualify for Nationals
in my first competition- 2011 NPCGrand Prix Natural Bodybuilding &
Figure Championship - Figure Division. Then I placed second in 2011 NPC
Illinois Championship - Bikini division. After that I compete in Jr
Nationals show. I didn’t placed high in Jr Nationals, but I got
incomparable experience and met so many great people, who share the same
passion for competition. We stay in touch, share experience and
motivate each other.

I continuously training and getting ready for next year competitions and I hope next year will be even more successful for me.

I am finally doing what I like the most in my life. My health and my
look progress radically. I appreciate my friends, family and my trainers
believing in me more then I believed in myself and see potential in me
that I didn’t believe ever exist.
