My name is Odalis Urena and I am Fitness Model, Natural Bodybuilder, Nutritional Consultant, Personal Trainer, Recording Artist, Actor and Writer. From when I was young, I would watch wrestling and dream about having a physique like the ones I saw on TV. In the back of my mind, I knew that one day I would be able to reach that goal. I began lifting weights at the age of 13, with the hope of one day walking around the beach with confidence. I continued to work out, and although I gained mass and looked good with my clothes on, I did not look the part without the clothes on. Every time I would be asked nutrition and training tips, I would feel so disappointed because I knew what I had to do, yet I could never take off my shirt at the beach with any confidence.
The turning point of my life came when I decided to take action and ask IFBB Pro bodybuilder, Colette Nelson, for advice. Colette mentored me and told me I would make a great fitness Model. I decided to take pictures to showcase my hard work, and the rest is history. Colette introduced me to Pro bodybuilder, Dave Palumbo, who has been there for me ever since; he put me on board with his supplement company Species Evolutionary Nutrition.
I want to thank the Almighty for all he has done for me.
“Don’t be afraid of discouraged for I the lord your God am with you wherever you go” Joshua 1:9
What Made Me "ME"
I would not be where I am now if it were not for Colette Nelson,Dave Palumbo, Skip La cour, Lee Haney and Anthony Catanzarro. These individuals have helped me out so much and I thank God for all he has done for me. Dave Palumbo put me on board with his company Species Nutrition as one of their Fitness Models.
My Body Proud Moments
Getting more exposure.
Stretching My Comfort Zone
Eat clean and have one cheat meal once a week. Write down your goals and try to beat your best lifts every time. Think positive and if any thing gets in your way try to find a strategy to keep you going.
Talents I Wish to Hone.
Having a body transformation and motivating others.
