Erin Halward CBBF Figure
How did you get interested in
I always bummed around in a gym but didn't really know what I was doing.
I wanted some serious fitness goals, so I searched around and found
my trainer (IFBB Pro Debbie Leung) who inspired me and helped me reach
my goals last year and will help me again this year for the 2005 CBBF
World Qualifier Figure July 9th.
What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?
My first show was a nervous one. I didn't know what to expect or what
I should have been doing. I'm kind of a tomboy so the idea of me "strutting
my stuff" in a tiny bikini was almost enough to make me throw in the
towel... but I gutted it out and for a brief moment people actually
thought I was girly!
What do you like and dislike about competing?
I really love the people I meet and the support I find from fellow competitors
and my friends. What did I dislike? hmmm... maybe the fact that I couldn't
have chocolate for 4 months.
What are your future goals in this industry?
I would like to do some more shows, gain some more experience and gain
some muscle size.
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
I would love to see myself as a police officer (currently in the application
process), making a difference every day and working for
something I believe in. I would also like to see my Jeep a little bigger.
Please tell us something special about you that most people
I'd much rather get out camping or wheeling, work on my Jeep or play
some hockey than go out for a fancy dinner or get all dressed up. I
also like to volunteer my time for many organizations (ie: AURS, Canadian
Breast Cancer Foundation, RCMP, Calgary Police, MS etc) and it is my
dream to drive a Nascar and tour Pixar Studios.
Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?
There's so many people I would like to thank, but I'll keep this part
short. Thank you to Debbie Leung for being here for me and preparing
me for my next show in July, thank you to my friends and my bf Cory
for being so supportive. If it weren't for you guys... I wouldn't be
where I am today. :) Every flower must grow through dirt.
