Natascha Encinosa’s Bio

Encinosa’s journey to physical fitness dates back to 2010 when she had a life-changing visit to the doctor’s office. Owing to her weight problems, the results of her routine medical checkup at the time were alarming, especially for a teenager as it turned out that her cholesterol level was so high that she was prone to suffering a heart attack. With the help of her parents, Encinosa was able to get her diet in check and for the first 2 years, she occasionally did some cardio exercises. However, she did not take exercising seriously until 2012 after she was dumped by her boyfriend at that time for being overweight. In a bid to get over the heartbreak, she took to the gym as a form of therapy for stress.
Despite the major life changes she had made, Natascha Encinosa remained in a constant struggle to keep her weight in check from 2012 to 2016. Hers was a vicious cycle of losing a few pounds via exercising and then indulging in some unhealthy food choices which ultimately returned her to her initial weight. From 2016 to early 2017, her body weight was within the range of 180-185 lbs. Encinosa was eventually able to achieve and even surpass her own body goals by the end of 2017 and ever since, there has been no turning back. Though her journey to fitness started out as a mere desire to get healthy, she has since transformed her passion into a full-time career.
