"I want to break the norm because I believe athletes come in all shapes and sizes." - Elvira
"Everyone has their own perception of what an athlete should look like. I want to break the norm because I believe athletes come in all shapes and sizes. To me, an athlete is a person who is constantly challenging themselves. Being a female athlete that weighs 200+ is something that is easily looked upon as lazy and the complete opposite of what an athlete should be. This is the exact stereotype that I am working to change.
As a competitive athlete, my main goals are speed and strength, therefore, I train to perform at my best. Food shouldn't be feared, but instead should be used as a tool for your body in a way that makes your goals achievable. I think a majority of the population is programmed to think that athletes are supposed to eat a certain way. What they don't know is that a healthy diet with the occasional cookie, is okay. I believe in the KFKF movement because it aims to dismantle and challenge what society defines as athletic and also promotes a balance that is constantly overlooked in the fitness industry. Be bold and be happy.
My name is Elvira. I am a heavyweight Strongman athlete, cookies fuel my leg days, and I am Kinda Fit Kinda Fat." - Elvira
