[ Q ] Where did you receive your Pro Card and what is different from being a Pro compared to and Amateur?
[ A ] Received Pro Card at the 2006 Canadian National Fitness and Figure Championships in Edmonton, Alberta.
The main changes I have had to make from being a Canadian Amateur Figure competitor to an IFBB Pro Figure competitor is with respect to my physique. I have been training like an athlete to downsize my muscle mass and streamline my physique for the Pro stage.
[ Q ] What inspired you to seek out competing in the Colorado Pro Figure as opposed to other shows?
[ A ] I have family that resides in Denver and I am competing in the show at the recommendation of my trainer.
[ Q ] Where are you from and where do you reside? How do you fine traveling on the road while preparing for competition, any special tips or advice?
[ A ] I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada so, all my travel involves air travel and packing food. I just pre-cook and pre-weigh all my food, freeze it and pack it in a travel cooler. I ensure I have access to a fridge and microwave at the hotel and I am all set!
[ Q ] Who would you most like to train with and be called out with on stage regarding other Pro Figure Competitors?
[ A ] I am very happy with my current trainer, Mike Davies, whom I have been working with since August 2006. Regarding call-outs, I don't have a preference of who to be called out with... but who wouldn't like to hear their name in first round call-outs?!
[ Q ] If there where one thing about Pro Figure you'd like to change what would it be and why?
[ A ] As I am new to Pro Figure, I'll reserve comment on this until I have some more experience and more shows under my belt!
