Amateur Fitness Competitor of the Week: Nancy Chen! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

I was introduced to weight training at 17 years old. In the beginning I was hesitant as I had no intention of "bulking up". But after seeing a girl at the gym with 6 pack abs, I immediately sought to become a fit and strong gal myself. I went from barely lifting 5 lb dumbbells for the overhead shoulder press to now being able to shell out 40 lb dumbbells - 10 reps strong!

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Fitness changes lives. Fitness offers me the opportunity to become a better self, to impact others and to enrich the community. Why else do I love it? Fitness introduced me to my best friend- my significant other, Edwin.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

A quote from Aristotle, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." Consistency is key!
