Midwest Muscle Fest competitor spotlight: Ashly Cox
Ashley Cox shares her story below on her journey to the Midwest Muscle Fest stage.
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO COMPETE?
As with most interesting things in my life, they started with a dare. My first fitness competition in 2012 was a dare. This show was my 4th since then, and although I no longer do them because someone is daring me; I am daring myself. I dare myself to continually seek improvement, challenges, and to maximize my health and potential (naturally).
WHAT OBSTACLES(S) DID YOU OVERCOME?
WHAT WAS THE BEST THING ABOUT COMPETING?
WHAT DO YOU HOPE OTHERS CAN TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR STORY?
I hope that others see that anything is possible when you put your mind to it, and that we all have the same 24 hours in a day. It’s up to us to decide what to do with that time, who we allow to influence us, and what we fuel our bodies with. I’m a firm believer that you are what you consume (audio, visual, alcohol, food, social).
