Introducing Nancy!

Having curvy Italian genes made Nancy feel as though her body was not a blessing. As a young woman, Nancy was often teased for being “Euro-Fat.” This led to her developing low-self esteem and a mild eating disorder. She felt chunky and unattractive, especially being a competitive gymnast, and surrounded by slim, nimble athletes all day. However, on the outside, Nancy was confident in the gym and engaging in sports like track, volleyball, and cheerleading.
Coming from an Italian family, Nancy was surrounded by irresistible Italian dishes. Her family would tell her not to get skinny, and she became obsessed with food and went back and forth between restricted and secret eating.
By 20, Nancy fell into a state of depression, bringing her to her lowest point in life. She dreamed about becoming a fitness model, but her negative self-talk did not allow that to become a reality. The turning point in her life came when a guy at the gym suggested that she finally face her fears and enter a fitness competition. It was this encouragement that led to her achieving that goal. Nancy learned to work with her body instead of against it. It was this commitment that replaced years of insecurities with physical strength, confidence, and self- respect.
Since Nancy first stepped on stage in 2004, fitness has been her passion and focal point of both her personal life and career. She has had a rewarding and diverse career in the international fitness, media, and modeling industry. Nancy has been a feature on the covers of Oxygen, Muscle and Fitness Hers, and Iron Man Magazine. She has hosted prestigious events for, Olympia, Toronto Pro show, and Arnold Sports Festival. She has interviewed high caliber sports celebrities, including legend Arnold Schwarzenegger. Nancy was able to co-host “Living Beautiful Radio,” Which allowed her to share her message and inspire others around her.
