Felicia Romero: IFBB Pro Interview

Published

on


How did you get started in fitness?

I saw a sign in my local gym for an NPC show and decided to do it. I have always been competitive and active…played sports in high school and college. I thought it would be a great goal to have but never thought I would have gotten as far as i have gotten.

How do you stay motivated?

I have bad days and good days but as long as i remind myself that I train for me and nobody else then I will be good. Also, the hundreds of messages I get telling me that I inspire them also helps to keep me on track. The motivation has never been tough to keep it is the consistency with it all is the toughest.

What does your diet consist of?

Diet consists of lean protein (I prefer fish and eggs), carbs (jasmine rice, gluten free oatmeal, quinoa), healthy fats (avocado, cashews, coconut oil), fruit (apples and berries….I don’t eat much dairy but try to get a good mix of all of these foods. I try not to omit whole food groups besides dairy…..my mindset has changed over the last year and i eat more for nutrition vs counting carbs/calories etc.

What’s your favorite cheat meal?

Fave cheat meal would probably have to be a cheese quesadilla and cake batter frozen yogurt with lots of fun toppings!

Black Panther Prediction Movie Review

Published

on

“Black Panther” has been one of Hollywood’s most anticipated movies since it was announced. While the film does not get released in theaters until February 16, it has already been screened to critics and a small group of lucky fans. Based on these early reviews, it is easy to predict exactly what to expect from “Black Panther.”

“Black Panther” has been getting a lot of attention because it is the first film to feature an African American superhero, but it will be able to transcend this historical moment due to its quality. It currently has a perfect rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it is already being called one of the best superhero movies of all-time. The writing, directing, acting and special effects are all top notch in “Black Panther.” ‘

Writer and director Ryan Coogler created absorbing stories filled with excellent characters in his previous two films, and he does exactly the same thing with “Black Panther.” This helps the film surpass the superhero genre despite featuring big battles with unique supernatural villains. The deep storytelling in “Black Panther” allows it to have as much in common with “Fruitvale Station” and “Creed” as it does with the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe.

Few superhero movies are able to satisfy nearly every film lover, but that is exactly what this film is going to achieve. Whether you are looking an action movie filled with intense action sequences or a poignant story filled with fully realized characters, you will leave the showing of “Black Panther” completely happy.

11 Questions with Diana Vazquez

How did you get started in training and living a fit lifestyle?
I was always athletic growing up and in school, but in 2013 my body made drastic changes and I wasn’t happy with myself. Looking at Instagram fitness models Michelle Lewin, Ainsley Rodriguez and Paige Hathaway, I wanted to be like them, (like any other woman). So in 2013, I started what I thought would just be a not everyday thing, to jumping into what now is my career, passion, and lifestyle. No destination!

Also: 11 Questions with Heather Marsh

What is the most challenging thing about being a fitness model?
The most challenging thing about fitness would definitely be staying motivated! Some days I have no motivation to go to the gym or be on point with meals, but then I think about why I’m doing all of this and get back on track. If you have no motivation to do anything, you’ll get nowhere. Being motivated 100% is tough because it’s not always there. I do this for the love of the game and that motivates me.

Do you listen to music while you train? If so, what’s your favorite type of music you like working out to?
I do listen to music. It’s different every day. I listen to anything from 90’s pop and punk, country, rock, reggaeton and some metal. It all depends on what Tim training!

What is your current training style, routine or split?
I go to the gym at least six days a week. My rest day depends on the day I’m shooting and then of course on my travel days. I try to keep consistent with six days a week.

What are your favorite clean foods and splurge foods?
My favorite clean food would definitely have to be chicken fajitas. I love peppers and chicken together. Also, I like to eat Roman lettuce with lime and a little bit of sugar. My “garbage” food would definitely be pasta and anything Mexican!





What’s your most memorable photo shoot or the funniest thing that’s happened on a shoot?
Most memorable time would have to be shooting with @allenlhgfx and falling into a rose bush after a groundsman told us the pavers I was standing on were loose… And then, of course, Allen capturing my fall with epic photos haha!

If you were trapped on an island, what 3 things would you bring with you?
Ugh, being trapped would be a nightmare! But if so, I’d definitely bring food, water, and a blanket.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
The craziest thing I’ve ever done would probably have to be jumping out of a moving vehicle.

What is your greatest strength?
I had to think about this one because it’s honestly hard to answer a question like this about yourself. My greatest strength would have to be love. I’m a very loving person. If I truly love something, I’ll never give up on it. It’s a great strength I have.

How do you measure success?
I measure success not by the luxury or things you have, but by how humble somebody is with all of their success. Being recognized for your hard work and being humble.

What tips do you have for a beginner at the gym?
NEVER be afraid to ask questions or help. I know when I started, I’d get discouraged when I couldn’t do something or didn’t know how. I was embarrassed to ask, so I’d “Google” what I needed to know. Even then, reading and watching videos during my gym time was taking up most of that time. If I knew then what I know now, I’d be a toddler asking a million questions! The great thing about getting started at the gym is, there’s ALWAYS improvement!
