Heather Drake WNBF Pro Interview

Sci-Unison Fitness interview with Heather Drake WNBF Pro

Ryan Sullivan: Heather, I would like to thank you for taking the time to do this interview and sharing your thoughts with perspectives with our audience. As a starter can you please tell us a little bit about yourself? 

Heather Drake: Ryan, thank you! It is my absolute pleasure to share my thoughts and perspectives with the audience of Sci-Unison Fitness.  My name is Heather Drake.  I am a WNBF Pro Figure competitor from Columbus, Ohio.  I’m 35 years old and a mother of 2 boys, ages 15 and 7.  Aside from being a mom, working my normal 9-5, and Saturday part-time, I make natural healthy living and fitness an utmost priority.  Despite my busy life, I stay active in and outside of the gym.  My home-gym, Beyond Limits Training, is where I put my heart and sheer will into the weight room, as well as my conditioning, and my posing.  I am also a member of LA Fitness.  I hardly have use for that gym except during the winter months when I am restricted to indoor cardio/aerobic activity.  I’m 5’5.5” in height.  My off season weight is 128; contest weight is 120.  My goal during off season is to stay lean while continuing to make muscle gains.

Ryan Sullivan:  I have always felt that competing can teach someone a lot about themselves. The discipline, the dedication, and the perseverance. These are all very useful qualities. Please explain what competing taught you about yourself and how you apply the fitness and competitive lifestyle to your everyday life. 

Heather Drake: It has most certainly taught me a lot!  For the first time in my life, I discovered that I had an incredible gift.  One that I never knew existed.  I found purpose.  My faith and direction guided me to nourish and pursue this life of fitness.  Designing a life that would better me by surrounding myself with positivity and become an inspiration for the very people who aspire to do the same.  It doesn’t matter where you are in life, it doesn’t matter your age, or what you have been put through, and dreams don’t fail unless you do. That is what it has taught me.

Ryan Sullivan: You are a natural drug free athlete. Can you share with us your reasoning behind choosing this path?

Heather Drake: There’s something great about having the feeling of self-will and discipline to go all out giving 110% in the gym based off of natural endorphins!  It’s a tough sport regardless of a natural or non-natural status.  The idea of putting even anything into my body to enhance me muscularly?  That does nothing to even tempt me.  As far as eating clean, that all comes very natural to me.  I hold an extremely high regard for the natural athletes because we are often overlooked and we do not get the recognition that is so often deserved.

Hyde Park Gym Austin Texas

Sci-Unison Fitness visits Austin Texas and highly recommends Hyde Park Gym.

I recently went on another vacation in the great state of Texas. My first few times I avoided working out and focused more on other activities. This time I made it a point to get a few workouts in while in Texas.
