She Worked Hard

Being a female fighter, Loureda had to face a lot of challenges. She tells Muscle and Fitness that she worked hard to get to where she is now. "I felt like I had to prove myself as an athlete to my coaches and my teammates. It was very hard to be able to grow in my own sport and to rise in a male-dominated sport. You have to learn how to speak to certain coaches and how to get through certain things and how to make the most out of what you have to reach where I am now.


She Doesn't Listen To Doubters

Loureda tells Muscle and Fitness that she doesn't listen or pay attention to what anyone else says about her. "If I would have listened to what anybody said about me, I wouldn't be in the position where I am now. And just because I don't look like I'm the stereotype in my sport doesn't mean I don't have the same level and the same talent. 


She's Confident

Loureda is extremely confident. She says to Muscle and Fitness that this is an important quality when being a professional fighter. "I think for women, one of the biggest things martial arts teaches you, in general, is confidence. You know, with confidence, you can do things. I've always been the only girl in my class, all full of men— for example, boxing— but I have the confidence to do that."


She Uses Protein Powder


Loureda likes to incorporate vitamins, proteins, and supplements into her wellness. She tells Muscle and Fitness that this helps her body recover. "Every day I work out, and after every workout I use Vital Performance Recover. I love guava lime— it reminds me of Miami. After every training session, I always do that to make sure I'm good for the next one. You know, it really helps my body and my recovery. The amino acids, and everything has been amazing for my training.


She Stays Motivated

Loureda says that she stays motivated to workout. She tells Vital Proteins, "Honestly, it's all about how bad you want it. There are days where I am less motivated than others, but I remind myself of my dreams and everything I want to accomplish, and it helps me push through the workout."
