My Story: My Triumphs // My Goals // My Dreams // My Why
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
