To all the guys staring at Daniela’s gorgeous picture, you better have an extremely heavy dumbell in your hand or else get lost. When I first reached out to Daniela it was no surprise she was responding to me from the gym. Getting her swole on (arguably swell, but I’ll use Daniela’s terminology in this case), I was clearly bothering her and she agreed to reach out when she was done. Four hours later she reached out and I couldn’t believe that she was in the gym that long, apparently this is standard body building procedure, but hey, “no pain, no gain”, right Daniela?.
SLM: Daniela, tell us a bit about yourself and bodybuilding, how did you get into it?
DK: I started working out when I was 18 years old and immediately fell in love with the changes I saw in my body, after that I decided I wanted to become a personal trainer and learn how my body works with different nutrition. Once I figured myself out I decided I wanted to help others and share my knowledge. After many success stories I was approached by someone who had asked me if I had ever thought about competing in the NPC (National Physique Committee). My first bikini show in the NPC was November 2nd 2013 where I placed second in my class! Once I placed second that automatically qualified me for nationals! After taking a short break from dieting and later continuing, I decided to go for nationals in June of 2014. Unfortunately, I did not do as well as I expected, due to being “too muscular” for my division. Yes, I said too muscular, and yes there is such a things as being too muscular for your division. After nationals I had to make a choice. Do I stay in the bikini division or do I cross over to the figure division? The difference between the two is that bikini is more of a softer look and figure is more of a harder more muscular look. So I decided since I already have the muscle that I would step up my game and cross over to compete with the big girls. As of right now I am in my “bulking” phase and I am growing each day stronger and better! Watch out for me in 2015! It’s gonna be insane with the package I’m gonna bring!
