Brittany Thorsch IFBB Fitness Pro

How did you get interested in bodybuilding/working out?

I was in the Australian Olympic Develop Squad and suffered from numerous injuries and was forced to say goodbye to gymnastics. I also danced, rode horses, was a member of a national cheerleading and marching squad; but after leaving gymnastics I still had an itch to become a professional athlete. I moved back to California from Australia in the year 2000 and saw a fitness show on TV one day. At my age I thought that it was something I could start and still have a chance of being a pro. I began training with Kim Oddo and he got me ready for the 2002 LA Fitness Championships where I placed 4th and the Ironman where I placed 2nd. That December I met a trainer who trained me for this years NPC 2003 LA Championships where I won the fitness overall and figure short class title. I went on the next week to take 7th at the USA's in the fitness short class. 2004 rolled around where I hit the USA stage again and earned my pro card by placing 2nd in the fitness short division.

What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?

I was so excited for my first show. I loved performing and I just new this sport was for me. My preparation and the day of the show couldn't have gone better. I guess it was a blessing and a sign from god that I had chosen the right path.

What do you like and dislike about competing?

i love every aspect of competing. There are positives and negatives from each aspect of any sport, I just choose not to focus on them.

What are your future goals in this industry?

To win a professional title, and compete in both the Arnold's and Olympia. I am also coming out with my new line of competition swim wear so be sure to check back at my site soon. I am looking at expanding my personal training business and implementing some great new ideas that will hopefully effect our whole country.

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?

I would like to be doing some television work with fitness programs, have a family and buy home back in Australia.
