Christina Vargas

Have you had any obstacles or setbacks towards achieving your goal physique?

Yes recently I was diagnosed with a severe heart condition called neuro cardio genetic and I have been struggling the past year. I was struggling and I didn't know why...I found out a few months ago it was because of that. It was something I was born with but the more intense and no rest and hard dieting I did made my condition really elevate for the worse. I just have been trying to work with my condition so I can make positive steps on achieving my physique goals.

How long do you spend in the gym during
a typical workout?

From 1 - 2 hours.

What’s the longest break you’ve had from training?

3 days

We know consistency is key, what tips would you give to anyone struggling to stay consistent?

When you push through the 2- 3 month barrier and see those results, why waste the  struggle it took you to get there.

How do you deal with cravings for junk foods, sweets and salty food?

Well I make healthy sweet treats, you can have fun in the kitchen and diet. Like I say everything in moderation. Also always switch up your proteins fish, turkey, chicken, even steak, makes it easier as well making your meals fun works the best.

Who are your favourite, athletes or fitness models?

Heather Mae, and Jodie Minear is my best friend so I love her.

What types of cardio have worked best for you?

Stairs

(Everyday is Cardio day except my Off day and my workout structure will change for every show.) Cardio is about 45 - 50 minutes a day. )

What does your diet consist of?

Lots of halibut sashimi & brown rice, chicken & brown rice, protein shakes and then when I’m not in a rush I create my healthy treat meals.
It's always easier to eat the boring meal when you’re rushing and hungry.

What supplements would you use/recommend if any?

I am not supposed to use any supplements besides protein because of my heart except vit. C and multi Vit. I use a bunch of different protein powders right now from proto whey, BSN, Betty lous and I just like to mix them up depending on how I feel and my diet.

What  tips would you give to any woman wanting to get a feminine, CutandJacked physique like yours?

Focus on plyometrics and HIIT training for best results.Take it from someone who did it.
Get tone, fit and lean.
