AN INTERVIEW WITH ATHLETE, ROBERTO ABAT GUERRA FOR THE MY JOURNEY STORY SERIES.
LAC: When did you decide to start making your health a priority (what or whom inspired this decision) and what were your goals?
Roberto: I recently turned twenty five which is when I began to become more conscious about my health. I have always been an athlete whom has been able to maintain a fairly good figure, but my physical appearance and my health are two whole separate unrelated models. My goal from here on out is to monitor what I consume more closely and by this time next year, have already competed.
LAC: How did you get started and what did you do to improve your health?
Roberto: Sports really drew me into fitness. Knowing what I had to do to be a great athlete also inspired me to fight just as tough when it came to the gym. As long as my mind tells me that I am feeding my body right, I am going to feel comfortable with myself.
LAC: How did you stay motivated and what was the biggest challenge?
Roberto: Seeing some of the professionals and normal individuals who are physically fit really set some expectations, and watching Arnold and how passionate he was really makes me wanna fight harder and harder.
LAC: What positive changes did you see in your life and what did you learn throughout this process?
Roberto: I have seen myself become more aware of my health and the way I feel. I have learned that through this process I have been able to turn temporary actions into a lifestyle in which I’ve learned to love.
LAC: Final Thoughts? Is there anything else you would like share about your story?
Roberto: Make health and fitness a standard thing in life, and let it become something you love, not something you dread.
