Michelle Parker WNSO Figure

How did you get interested in bodybuilding/working out?

My dear friend Meghan Cooke got me hooked on competing. AS for working out, it has always been a part of my life.

What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?

My first year competing was definitely an experience. I definitely got an adrenaline high from being on stage which is why I am hooked on this sport.

What do you like and dislike about competing?

My likes are seeing my body change so much in such a short time. My dislikes for sure are missing out on fun events because of dieting. It is the hardest thing to go out with your friends and eat chicken and cucumbers when everyone else is enjoying chocolate and other yummy foods.

What are your future goals in this industry?

My dream job is to be an international fitness presenter. I compete for the exposure and hope that it will help me gain more recognition in the fitness industry.

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?

I see myself presenting all over the world.

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

I have the most amazing man in my life. Mark is the ultimate support person, my best friend and the man I intend to spend the rest of my life with.

Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?

I would love to thank everyone in my support circle, especially those who have helped ease the $$ issues. Thank you to Dr. Pat for all your chiropractic care, to Fitness on 5th, The YWCA of Calgary, Shea you rock girl, she athletic wear and New Balance for the clothing and Sundrops Studio for sponsoring me with my tans for competition. I would also like to give a big thanks to Wayne from Melrose Cafe and Bar in Calgary (the RED MILE during the NHL playoffs) for his support.
And to my friends and family who have put up with all of my mood swings, strict dieting and everything else that comes along with this field. You have all been an amazing support.
And last, to Mark for everything you have done for me. I truly am the luckest girl in the world to have you by my side.
