Brittany Thorsch IFBB Fitness Pro
How did you get interested in
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.
