A return guest this week on “Tech of Sports” and it’s been a while as Margarita Ventura joins Rick.
As the Senior Project Manager of Global Creative, Digital & Content at bareMinerals, Filipino-Spanish fitness model, dancer, actress and competitive athlete rolled into one – Life can get REALLY hectic! In the midst of it all, Margarita went on a journey with the Iron. She co-hosted the show Sex, Love & Bodybuilding on the Generation Iron Network. Then went to train in CrossFit, Olympic Lifting and, of course, strength & bodybuilding. She started dancing and acting again to tap into my artistic integrity and creative expression. So far it’s been so much fun and has served as a great outlet when combining methods.
Not having completed since 2015, I decided to step on stage again for my Pro Show Debut at World Beauty Fitness Fashion Worlds 2019 where I placed Top 5 in the World WBFF Diva Bikini 35+ and just recently Top 4 at WBFF Atlantic City. Not too shabby for my first time at WBFF Worlds where the line up was the best of the best from around the globe.
As a former professional dancer and gym rat since a kid, being healthy and active has always been a source of strength for her through any adversity. However, after years in the advertising world, like many others, she neglected to make my health a priority.
Balancing my professional and personal life was time consuming enough that it almost felt selfish to take time to take care of myself. Being unhealthy can come in various forms, from being too skinny to being overweight or yo-yoing between the two by leaving your nutrition, sleep and exercise regimen to chance. Meanwhile also enduring mental and emotional stress that can affect your physical and hormonal health too.
Margarita joins Rick and talks fitness, life and doing it all!
