Amateur Fitness Competitor of the Week: Victoria Hamm! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

I began lifting weights when I turned 18. However, about 3 years ago I wanted something more. I attended the Alabama State Bodybuilding, Figure and Fitness Championships in August of 2006. I decided that Figure was something that I wanted to pursue and began training for my first competition which was May of 2007. I did okay in 2007, but I decided that I wanted to improve my physique more. I hired Greg Hasberry from Birmingham. I then competed in the Southeastern Gold's Classic in Gadsden and won my class!
