We just received an awesome Interview Submission from Lauren Lelli!
… she’s got quite an inspiring story to share.
Checkout her out … I’m sure you’ll learn a thing or two from her experiences as a Figure Competitor.
I am a 24 year old working in NYC at a software start up with industry focus in spa/salon and fitness. I am a Johnson & Wales University graduate holding my bachelors degree in Fashion Merchandising & Retail Marketing. I am passionate about fitness, clean eating and plan to open a healthy food truck someday! My family and friends are my world and backbone.
My trainer, MalennaSaunders, hands down. I can’t believe I’ve already competed in two fitness competitions, something I never had any intention of ever doing. All of this stemmed from meeting Malenna through Phoeynx Fitness, a boot camp in NYC.
After learning that Malenna competed and she wanted to gather a team to not only help but also have us eat and train as if we were getting stage ready too, I was definitely intrigued. I love competition and a challenge so I was on board. Without her ongoing support, knowledge and passion, I certainly wouldn’t be the competitor I am today. I would never have gotten this far without her.
My first competition as a Figure Competitor was with Fitness America Muscle Mania on October 27, 2012 in Astoria, NY. At this show I competed in both figure and bikini.
As a Figure Competitor, I placed first, took overall and also received my pro card. In bikini, I placed second. My second competition was with WBFF on November 3, 2012 in Providence, Rhode Island. In this show, I competed in both Diva Fit Model and Diva Bikini. In Diva Fit Model, I placed second and received my pro card. In Diva Bikini, I placed 7th.
My next show is in April 2013. I will be competing in Diva Fit Model.
