[ Q ] Name

    A: Erica Nicole Davidson.


[ Q ] Reside in:

    A: Roseville/Rocklin, California.


[ Q ] Wanted to be... growing up?

    A: Actress, cosmetologist, singer (even though I can't sing).


[ Q ] How did you come to work with Kim Oddo?

    A: My friend IFBB Figure Pro Rhonda Riley has always been there to help me during contest prep. She started training with him and I knew I couldn't do my own training for Nationals, so she referred me to him. The best decision I have made so far!

There is nothing wrong with hiring a nutritionist or a personal trainer that is skilled in the area of physique competition to assist you in your efforts. The extra support is also very helpful!

[ Q ] How's it been working with Kim for your contest prep?

    A: Physically rough! LOL. But Kim is SO amazing and good at what he does.


[ Q ] How long have you been working with him?

    A: Almost one year now.


[ Q ] Mentors or someone you look up to in the fitness industry:

    A: Monica Brant is who I definitely look up to. Not only because she has THE BEST physique ever but also because she is very humble. She places consistently behind Jenny Lynn and she still keeps a smile on her face and doesn't show poor sportsmanship what so ever.


[ Q ] Who does your choreography?


[ Q ] New routine planned for this year or tweaking the current one?

    A: Well... taking a break from fitness and gonna give the figure stage a try.


[ Q ] Why the switch to figure?

    A: For a few reasons I guess. Number one reason comes down to money. Fitness becomes very expensive when you consider paying a choreographer, gymnastics coach, routine music, an additional suit and a trainer it becomes very pricey!

    We would also like to buy a house this year, and for me to be traveling to more competitions this year is pretty difficult financially.

    With a busy life I was finding it very hard to find time for routine practice, gymnastics, cardio, lifting, etc. I was constantly frustrated and upset. I talked to Kim and we came to the conclusion that I give figure a shot this year and see where it takes me.


[ Q ] Number of years competing?

    A: Going on my third year.


[ Q ] Competition history:

    A:
    2002 Contra Costa Fitness - 2nd place
