Jovana Aleksic - Bikini Competitor

1st place Novice, 2nd place Open F class, 2019 NPC California State Championships

Jovana: My background is Serbian. Iím originally from Serbia, I always love fitness lifestyle but living with a professional bodybuilder made it easier to get involved seriously. In 2016 just after six months of training I competed at IFBB Dubai Muscle show and I took 4th place and I got hooked, I love the stage.

My off season diet allowed me to have more carbs and once in a while a cheat meal, when contest prep starts about 12-14 weeks out then it is time to get serious. I listen to my coach, normally carbs intake going down depending on how much cardio I do and what muscle group I train, everybody is different and I suggest the best way is to have a prep couch who knows what he is doing, without wondering and guessing what I should eat and how I should train.

For a long time I didnít have self confidence, I always thought I wasn't good enough, my husband and coach saw the different from the side, he helped me to build my self confidence.

Components of my training involve many different things, I lift weights I do cardio sometimes twice a day one hour each time, I do plyometrics, my diet always follows my training, for example if I do legs and cardio one day I have certain amount of carbs, fats and protein intake other day when I do plyo my food intake is totally different.

Recently I competed first time in US on California State Championship I loved how they treat every and each competitor in such professionalism and organization of competition itself is on much higher level than in Europe.

Many people asked me how being an athlete effects my life - do I have time for other things: you have to be well organized and you have time for friends, family etc. My future plans are to get a pro card to be top contender and I think I would be a great ambassador of the sport.

For personal training, modeling etc people can contact me on my email or DM on instagram @jovanaactivfit.
