How Did You Get Started?

I got started with strength training when I was 19. I was going to school in Dartmouth and didn't know anybody! My Aunt (whom I was living with) had a membership at a gym. I joined up and got to know someone who also went to my school. This person was really into training and taught me a lot. I loved it and continued with it 5 days a week.

When I moved back home I immediately joined a gym and the owner thought I showed a lot of genetic potential for bodybuilding. He designed me a program and with that I entered my first contest and placed 2nd in women's middleweight! I was so happy!!!!! My love of the "sport" of physique training was launched. It was something I was good at and people respected me for my efforts.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I have a pretty mesomorph dominant body so as long as I train regular and eat "clean" with lots of protein I can make great gains. I like to train in a way that keeps my cardio pumping so I tend to stick with rope jumping, kickboxing, sprinting, etc., between sets.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

50% protein, 30% carbs, & 20% fats.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Thermogenics, BSN Nitrix and NO-Xplode are sooooo wicked!!!!

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

It's my release. It's where I think the best and can shut out the negative crap that can cloud my thoughts. Its rewards are endless!!!!!

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

Undecided. I competed recently in figure. There seems to be a lot of confusion as to how the athletes should look. Hard, soft, ripped, small and toned?????? Due to the confusion I find it difficult to invest the $$$$ in something that I can't work towards (accurately) I mean, if I have a target I can hit it. If the target is always moving it's harder to nail down. It is also necessary to have great family support and if "the family" is not on board-man-o-man... not cool!
