Lauralie Chapados remembers the date: November 3, 201
The French Canadian strived through fitness to "feel better in my own skin" and scribbled workouts and nutritional tips from magazines and websites. 19659003] "I remember I forced myself to eat ten eggs for breakfast before I go to school," she laughs. "My parents were freaking out. My body has changed drastically, and I loved it.
When Chapado gained experience, she began training twice a day. In the morning she trained with cardio and abdominal muscles and in the evening part of her body parted. She appeared on stage in her first bikini contests until 2015, winning first and overall wins at two local shows before heading to a national bikini event in Toronto. There, she again outperformed her class, but narrowed in the overall standings and narrowly missed the corresponding pro card.
"When I came home from this show, I set myself the task of working twice as hard and getting my pro card next year," says Chapados. She asked for the help of her friend Maxime Caron (now her fiancé) as a trainer, and this goal became reality with her overall victory at the IFBB International Events Qualifier 2016. Since then, the 22-year-old has participated in six IFBB Pro League Bikini events and won three consecutive wins in 2018 in Toronto, Chicago and Tampa before finishing second at the Olympics. "Finishing second place was an absolute blessing. I still have all the feelings of that day, "she says. "I can not wait to do it all again in 2019. And now it's just another step to achieving my biggest dream."
