Maya Astabie is a San Francisco
native and honorary New Yorker, the athlete we are speaking with
today is a Filipino-French 25-year old IFBB Bikini Pro. She is a
proud FitBody Fusion Athlete and Ambassador happily rising and
grinding every day to become the best version of herself! She
believes that when we let our own UNIQUE light shine, we encourage
others to do the same. When she’s not putting in work at the gym or
cooking in the kitchen, you can find her hustling as a healthcare
Advertising Account Executive. She feels most alive strutting on
stage, in the zone at the gym or dancing at music festivals. She’s
passionate about spreading positivity, training and traveling, the
power of community and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
Tune in to hear Maya's journey to earning her pro card, the intense dedication to her coach and plan that would surprise most bodybuilders, what she loves about the grind, and how self-advocacy helped her find the perfect fit for a coach. She even answers questions from the audience!
She also discusses how she stays positive, what she does to work on her mental game (including being a member of the On-Demand Mindset Coaching Platform for Competitors), and shares some of her favorite quotes with us throughout the conversation.
Maya talks about what it was like to go pro within a year, how she feels about friends and the comradery in the sport as well as what her lifestyle was like before she found fitness including online shopping and drinking.
We also get into how early morning training has been a game changer for Maya and how she was able to adjust to early mornings using her alarm clocks as motivation. She shares her day to day life balancing work, life, and competing.
Maya reflects on things like what it was like to earn her pro card, adjusting to bodybuilding life, going to USAs, and her favorite cookie companies. She also shares how she maintains adherence to her plan and what helps her to do so even at music festivals.
