Isabelle TurellWhat did I do before body building?
I was a computer nerd.

How and when did you get involved into bodybuilding/lifting weights?
Started bodybuilding: April 2001

I played sports so I had to be fit to play my role in the game. I do admit I was a fatty little thing. I had a little belly and huge thighs. My nickname was thunder thighs.

Once in a while I lifted weights but I didn't know anything about how to lift a weight or exercise with weight training. My whole life did a 360 when I was 20 years old.

I really wasn't a fan of muscles and bodybuilding. I thought it was silly. I wanted to give bodybuilding a try as I believe you have to try everything once in life. At that point I wanted to do something that I never done before. I ran into an old friend who was a bodybuilder. I told her I wanted to compete in a show. I had no idea the lifestyle change I was getting into; nor did I know it was going to forever change my life.

I strongly believe that anyone can achieve anything their hearts desire. You just have to believe in yourself and in your dreams. Anything is possible when you put your mind to it. Some people say I can't do it or I could never achieve my goals. Never say never or you can't do something. Of course you can. I don't just mean bodybuilding; I mean everything and anything in life. Trust me, I know this from experience.

I didn't have an easy life growing up. I had to keep my chin up and keep moving forward. I admit, bodybuilding is one of the toughest sports. You have to be mentally focused and be very discipline.
I believe that to be successful in bodybuilding you have to do a couple of things:

  • Think positive
  • Stay on your diet (this is critical), and don't skip meals
  • Don''t slack cardio, and training
  • Be dedicated and determined to be the best
  • Be strong minded
  • Believe in yourself as you are a champion
  • Have fun
