“Just focus on yourself, that's all you can really do. You can't control anybody else… Don't overextend yourself because it's meant to be about personal growth and development.” —Dèvre Gibson

Hard work is non-negotiable in bodybuilding. Whether it’s grueling gym sessions, unyielding cardio routines, or the disciplined exertion of self-control, the hard work required is relentless and rigorous. Yet, remember, it’s never about perfection, but progress; and never about external comparison, but personal growth. 

In this episode, Sherrie sits down with competitive bodybuilder Dèvre Gibson to share how she got her start in bodybuilding and her motivation to continue competing to push her limits. Learn about the commitment required to compete, the mental strength it takes to focus and block out comparisons, and transitioning into coaching and helping others achieve their goals.

For those considering competing, Dèvre offers invaluable advice on finding the right coach and allowing adequate preparation time. She also emphasizes the importance of support from the tight-knit bodybuilding community. Tune in and make every rep count!
