Jennifer De Joya NPC Figure
How did you get interested in
I have always been active in sports since age 5. I was involved in figure skating in elementary school, tennis in high school and teaching aerobics since college. I was active always to keep my weight down. When I saw a fitness competition in 1997 on TV that's when I set a goal and got involved in weight training and dieting. I've been living that lifestyle ever since.
What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?
My first show, I was very scared and very excited at the same time. It was great to find a group of people that shared the same experience and enjoy the same lifestyle. I have learned so much about myself and have won some really cool trophies in the process.
What do you like and dislike about competing? Nothing.
I love everything about it and all aspects (i.e. goal setting, discipline) have been passed on to other areas of my life.
What are your future goals in this industry? To do more fitness modeling and competitions in 2005. Eventually go Pro by 2006.
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
Continue competing through the Master's 45 and over Division.
