Bethany Howlett IFBB Fitness Pro

How did you get interested in bodybuilding/working out?

I was an elite level gymnast from the age of three having trained for fifteen years and tried out for the Olympics.

How was your first show like, any interesting experiences?

I won the entire show including best poser and then realized that the sport is nothing more than a hobby that allows you to place your trophies on your shelves next to the gymnastics, cheerleading, singing, track, etc. trophies from childhood.

What do you like and dislike about competing?

Competing is nothing more than a glorified hobby with no financial options or future security. I compete because I enjoy fitness and am a very competitive individual.

What are your future goals in this industry?

I assume you mean the fitness industry as unfortunately the IFBB looks to have very weak future indeed. I will have my series of four fitness books out in 2005 for the mainstream as they will be available on As far as competing with the IFBB anymore.......seriously and severely doubt it.

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?

Being the CEO of an INC. 500 company ranked in the top ten companies of the United States, as well as a major share holder in top D.C. city real estate properties as well as with a few decathlon titles under my belt.

Please tell us something special about you that most people wouldn't know?

I am a member of MENSA and have an IQ that is well above genius. I hold four degrees with the highest being a master's degree in advanced genetic molecular biology and am working on my fifth and sixth degrees right now, an executive MBA and a doctorate MBA. I also sing opera in eight languages and am fluent in Spanish.

Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?

My Lord and Saviour for blessing me so very much.
