“I have always loved fitness and I was no stranger to the gym, but I did slack off a bit so I wanted to step it up and do something different and out of my comfort zone. So I decided to compete in my very first NPC bikini competition. I came across Team Pulse from a friend of a friend and emailed Camile Periat immediately. I’m so happy I did because I do not know how I would have done it without her. She was always available to answer any of my questions and motivated me every step of the way. Competing can take a toll on you mentally and physically, but having awesome coaches and being part of a team with amazing competitors who are with you every step of the way makes it all worth it. I’m so grateful to be apart of Team Pulse and cannot wait to step on stage again” -Desarae Rabogo, 2016
