Amateur Fitness Competitor of the Week: Lisa Faria! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

After being stuck with the 'last ten pounds' for my entire adult life, I sought professional help to revamp my diet and training habits in order to achieve my physique goals. I started clean eating and working with a trainer three times per week in January 2008. With guidance and hard work, I met my goal weight and body fat percentage by May.

I started competing after being inspired by other women at the club, as well as by my trainer. My first competition was in October 2008 and 'the rest is history!'
