Karen Zaremba IFBB Figure Pro

How did you get interested in bodybuilding/working out?

I became interested in working out as a way to keep myself in shape after College when I wasn't involved in competitive sports anymore.

What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?

The first time I competed was as a bodybuilder at the Michigan Novice Bodybuilding Championship. I had a blast doing the poses and the routine. I won the overall.

What do you like and dislike about competing?

I love everything about competing especially wearing the beautiful suits and I wearing the heels and being all made up. The only thing I really don't like is applying the 5-6 coats of pro tan!

What are your future goals in this industry?

My future goals are to continue competing as a pro and to keep making improvements on my physique. I would love to compete at a show like the Arnold Classic and the Olympia.

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?

In 10 years I hope to be as healthy as I am now. I'm sure I'll still be training but not competing. Maybe I'll take up golf.

Please tell us something special about you that most people wouldn't know?

I don't think most people know that I was a fitness model for 6 years before I started competing. I was published a lot in MuscleMag, American Curves, Fitbeauties and some others.

Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?

I would like to thank My husband Dan for being so supportive of me and allowing me to "shine". Thanks to Troponin for all his guidance with my diet, training and posing. Thanks to my friends at the gym especially my training partner Alicia St. Germaine who will become a pro bodybuilder very soon.

Thanks JC for showing an interest in me and giving me this opportunity to share my life and who I am with everyone.
