In this episode, Celeste Rains-Turk speaks with Jacky Gomez, a Spanish athlete who was born and raised in New York, has been married to her highschool sweetheart for 9 years and aside from being a sponsored athlete and bikini pro she is also a teacher at a Montessori school.
Jacky shares some of the struggles she faced after being in a caloric deficit and doing tons of cardio for so long. She talks about how she switched up her nutrition and training and took the leap of faith which ended up paying off big time. By bringing back the motivation she lost after getting sick after competing a lot in a short period of time, she was facing depression, anxiety, and her body shut down. She couldn't even train because she was so exhausted and out of it, everything was off.
She recalls moments as an amateur that helped her in her years competing and what Nicole Wilkins said to her on stage that provided her new perspective, what she did to overcome some negative judges feedback before stepping on stage to earn her pro card, and the way that sponsorships offload a lot of the expenses competing brings.
