Today I speak with IFBB Figure Pro Bernadette Galvan. She is the Vice Chair for NPC Texas and a promoter Galvanized Texas. After she graduated from nursing school, she started working in a fitness center which lead to her introduction to bodybuilding. She earned her Pro card in 2005 and competed at the Olympia in 2007 and 2008. Bernadette talks about how she has changed her mindset through competing and how that has carried over to the rest of her life.

Bernadette gives her advice as a judge for competitors when making their individual routines. She shares common mistakes she sees and what competitors need to focus on. You don’t want to miss this interview!
