My name is Virginia Luchman and I am 42 years young! I am a wife and mother of four beautiful and active kids, 3 girls and 1 boy. I love to spend quality family time, work out and travel!
My kids keep me going, My oldest is 20 and in college and my little ones ages are 12,9,and 7 years old. I have always wanted to be a mom and have a big family. Since I was a kid, I was always the skinny one, I never played any sports, I partied and never thought I needed to work out. I drank and ate whatever I wanted. I thought I would stay skinny forever. I told my self its my genes!! It all suddenly changed when I had my first baby. My body just did not want to lose that baby weight. My hormones were going crazy, still I did nothing about it because “life happens”. Then came more babies, at a later stage of my life, my 30’s. I was always tired; I couldn’t keep up with my children. I was irritable and stressed out! I really needed help! All I told myself was excuses! Having kids and not being healthy is not ideal, I am drained if you want to see your kids grow into adults and see your grandchildren the time is now, I said!
I had made up my mind and said enough is enough! I joined a gym and it was the best decision I had ever made. Joining and walking into the gym was so intimidating but I had a goal I needed to accomplish.
I feel it is very important to be with “like minded” people, people that are positive and want to see you succeed. This is who I surround myself with at the gym. I met so many moms that had been in my shoes and we all empowered each other we were getting stronger. I felt myself getting better, losing weight, less irritable, in control of my life and time.
I then I took it to the next level and decided I wanted to compete in bikini shows with NPC. I have competed in 6 shows in the past 5 years in the over 35 year old category and masters over 40 category. Placing top 5 in each show. It was the most thrilling experience ever. Stepping on stage was so satisfying because I had accomplished what I set out to do.
Now, I love empowering women and kids to be active and lead a healthy lifestyle.I am so humbled to be a part of such an amazing team and I am so excited to be selected to represent! It’s NEVER to late to start. It just takes one decision and the time is NOW!
