When I was a teenager, my fitness journey began with trips to the 24-hour gym with my mom. I fell in love with strength training during those sessions and continued to pursue it with dedication. However, it wasn't until 2020 that I truly reignited my passion for fitness, seeking not only to be healthy but also to genuinely enjoy the process. This renewed commitment led me to experiment with making healthy meals at home, turning nutrition into an integral part of my fitness journey.

One of the most rewarding aspects of this journey has been the sense of community I've found at the gym. Meeting new people who share my passion for fitness has been incredibly motivating. We've built friendships based on mutual goals and support. I've also learned the importance of proper form and the necessity of stretching before diving into workouts, which has significantly improved my fitness regimen.

Nowadays, I work out four to five days a week, incorporating barre exercises into my routine. The changes I've seen in my body since 2020 are remarkable—I’ve grown stronger and more toned, watching my muscles develop over time. The lockdown period was a turning point for me, as I adapted to working out at home, but now I feel completely at home in the gym. Sharing this experience with my mom has made it even more enjoyable and fulfilling.

Outside of the gym, I have a unique passion for 3D modeling. Using Maya Software and Substance Painter, I create detailed environment props on my desktop computer. My work, which can be found at @starlyn3d, is a way for me to tell stories and connect with other artists in the animation industry. Balancing my fitness journey with my artistic endeavors has been a rewarding challenge.

Looking ahead, my goals are clear: I want to keep progressing in my fitness journey, pushing myself to new heights both physically and mentally. I am excited about the future and the continuous improvements I will make, both in the gym and in my creative work. My fitness journey is far from over, and I’m eager to see where it takes me next.
