Alexa Trafalis Overall Female Fitness Model Winner, (pictured right)
“Who would of thought going to a fitness show in Sacramento with my best friend Yolanda Mejia-Dixon I’d be blessed with all this! Natalie Minh approached me at the show, asking “who are you and what do you do?” I was literally siting at a slot machine ready to leave when Natalie gave me her business card and invited me to be in her Model and Fitness show.
I was over shows and competing, I wanted something different. I was looking for a new drive, other than working at my gym (Team TAF- Total Athletic Fitness). I emailed Natalie and made it clear I did not want to just do any show, I had done a couple of shows in the past to get noticed and to get my name out there hoping one day to also get into more modeling. Unfortunately it was not the marketing I needed, I needed more and thats what Natalie promised me her show would provide.
I am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason and this is a perfect example of that. Wow, I got more than what was promised! Not only did the whole crew Gary, Mitchie, Clark and most of all Natalie put me in the best networking environment yet! I set a few personal goals and achieved those and so much more!
I have now made history by being the 1st female fitness model to win the overall award. From my winning I was promised a modeling contract in which I signed with Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited Models and Talent Agency TODAY! I was promised photo shoots and I have 6 lined up for weeks approaching. Not only did this show help me find my drive again I was given the best oppertunities possible. I know this is just the beginning of so much more to come.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I am so excited and I fell so blessed. I wouldnt have got here without my TeamTaf, Team Ventura and the Powetec Team!”
