Jennifer Searles IFBB Figure Pro
How did you get interested in
I'm an actress, and I thought that it would get me more auditions if
I were in shape.
What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?
I didn't really know what I was doing. I basically starved myself for
three months, got up on stage, and did some quarter turns. I was never
very nervous though, just VERY excited!
What do you like and dislike about competing?
I HATE applying the color! I always feel so messy and dirty. I LOVE
the feeling of accomplishment that I get when I am on a competitive
stage. Knowing that this day is the culmination of months of gruelling
work is a rush unrivaled!
What are your future goals in this industry?
I hope to someday win the Figure Olympia (doesn't every Figure competitor?)
I would also like to have a positive influence on other females to take
care of themselves and be good to their bodies.
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
Hopefully raising a beautiful family while continuing to promote health
and wellness to the public. I hope to be involved in the sport as a
successful competitor and role model for as long as can!
Please tell us something special about you that most people
I am afraid of the dark, and actually LOVE steamed broccoli!
Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?
I just want to do the sport justice, and to have fun and work hard to
be the best that I can be, while making friends along the way. I also
wanna thank all of my friends and family for still loving me even when
I am a maniacal diet monster.
