How Did You Get Started?

When cheerleading season ended for me about a year ago, my boyfriend talked me into going to the gym with him. I had been to the gym many times before but I always stuck to the "Girl" stuff, like cardio and abs only. I learned how to workout properly and began intense training in September when I went to University. When I started developing muscle I thought about entering a fitness competition. As I added more and more muscle a trainer at Diamond fitness (my gym) suggested I give bodybuiding a try, so from there on this has become much more than just a hobby. In april 2003, I placed 2nd in the women's lightweight division in the NSABBA bodybuiding provincials held in Halifax.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

  • Mon: Chest
  • Tues: Back
  • Wed: Shoulders
  • Thurs: Day off
  • Fri: Biceps, triceps
  • Sat: Legs
  • Sun: Abs and forearms
Plus I try to do about a half hour of cardio each day and on Saturday and Sundays I do additional cardio early in the morning. This workout plan works best for me right now because doing one body part a week gives me additional time for cardio which is important for me now. I will vary my schedule as I see needed, when I stop seeing results it's time for a change.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?


Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love bodybuilding because this lifestyle suits me better than anything else. Seeing the results I can achieve in the gym shows me why I love this sport. I love setting an example to other people through my dedication and hard work. My day does not feel complete without working out and adequate nutrition.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

Next April I plan on doing Provincails again, hopefully to take the win! Then, I hope to head off to the Canadian nationals. I plan on doing this for a long time continuing to meet and exceed my goals.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

When I'm working out a lot of girls ask me "How do I get in shape" and usually a lot of the time girls and guys don't get enough protein. I can stress enough how important protein is for muscle building and the results youb can get from it. Each meal is not complete without protein.
