Lisa Morton IFBB Figure Pro
How did you get interested in
I took weight training in high school because I was tired of being so skinny!I loved it so much I decided to get my Batchelor's degree in Exercise Science.
How was your first show like, any interesting experiences?
It was wonderful! I had a friend enter it with me so that made it a little less scary.
What do you like and dislike about competing?
Putting the tanning stuff on is a pain. There has to be an easier way.
What are your future goals in this industry?
I would love to find sponsorship and continue competing.
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
That would make me 35. Hmmmm, still competing and being a successful fitness model.

Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?
I would like to thank my wonderful mom. I wouldn't be anywhere near where I am at if it was not for her. She has supported me in every way since day 1.Thanks to everyone else who has believed in me. Thanks to Craig and Brenna for the awesome pics you all have taken. Thanks to my trainer Jeremy Minihan "Size and Shape Fitness" out of Oklahoma City. I really could not have done this without him.
