Bodybuilding – The Beginning
Harmony lives in Antwerp, Belgium. She’s been a student in Culture and Management in her home country and trains hard as an IFBB Figure Competitor. She’s also a brand ambassador and keen photographer.
However, Harmony was never into sports and training in her youth, she only started to lose a few extra pounds. She first started running, and then soon progresses into a healthy eating routine and made exercise a regular part of her life.
It wasn’t until her friend introduced her to bodybuilding that she became hooked.
“Before, I never liked sport actually. I started running to lose some weight. I found myself through regular exercise while watching my diet, and I felt a lot better in my own skin. After I had finished the Insanity program, I was looking for something new. My friend brought me when in contact with bodybuilding, and once I had started in the gym, I was hooked. This was my thing!”
In March 2015, she took part in her first ever bodybuilding competition. She won first in her class and took home 1st place for “Miss Body – Overall Best Female Athlete”.
Apart from competing in Figure and Bodybuilding competitions, Harmony is also a professional photographer and a keen artist. When she has the free time, she’ll make a living taking pictures and promoting her business. However, most of her time is taken up training, modeling and preparing for upcoming events.
“I am a professional photographer, a hobby which I fortunately, earn money with. Where I can, I try to make more free time, but most of the time is spent on fitness and everything that comes with it. Meal prep, posser lessen, and cardio, and making my own bikinis for the stage. Also, visual arts and fashion are great passions of mine. I visit so like a museum. I also play violin since I was 6, but I have a few months ago put to one side since the break up of my band.”
Hopes And Ambitions
