I am a 24 year old alternative model, Twitch Streamer, cosplayer, and bartender, who is known under the alias Maia Rayn.
My fitness journey began when I was accepted into Chaos Talent Modeling Agency, thus launching my career in modeling. I was a bartender in a high volume night club on campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan at the time. Being naturally petite and very active in my line of work, I didn't think too much about health and fitness.
Working themed nights and Halloween events, I became interested in costuming, and cosplay became a huge hobby.
As life continued, I moved away and got a slower-paced job as to be with my body building boyfriend. Fitness was his thing, not mine. He didn't push it on me or judge me for not being interested. In slowing down, so did my metabolism, and poor eating habits started to show.
Having a bodybuilding boyfriend, I was introduced to fitness competitions, where I saw beautiful bikini competitors for the first time, and was amazed at how humble and kind-spirited these competitors were. This inspired me.
As an introduction to health, I tried a juice reboot along with my boyfriend. He also encouraged the use of a stationary bike for an hour a day during the cleanse to look my best for an upcoming photo shoot. I couldn't believe the results. I lost 12 lbs in 7 days, and just plain felt good. I was hooked and craved more. I started to see potential with my body, my health, and the benefit of bettering my looks for my modeling.
My boyfriend became a sponsored athlete by Ranger Nutrition, which encouraged me to try Ranger Nutrition's products. I then started to see more results, even faster.
Now, with the help of Ranger Nutrition, I continue my fitness journey and grow as an athlete, sculpting my body just as I create my character concepts for cosplay.
