Roseanne Blackburn CBBF Bodybuilding
How did you get interested in
Favorite Music : a little of everything depending on my mood..rockor heavy metal for the gym and light rock for most enverything else.
I was trying to lose wt for the canadian nationals for boxing and was in the gym doing cardio and a trainer walked up and asked if he could train me for free since I had a great symetrical physique to work with.
How was your first show like, any interesting experiences?
NEVER use PRO TAN...I was blacker than the ace of spades and was so blotchy it was totally embarassing...I use dreamtan and yes it a dream...you nevr know I probably didn't put it on right!
What do you like and dislike about competing?
the diet as every bodybuilder in their right mind would tell you...especially when you have a sweet tooth.
What are your future goals in this industry?
I want to do fitness modeling, acting as stunt doubles in movies, and have a sponsor I an promote through my bodybuilding or fighting (mixed martial arts NHB)
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
being retired....ya right...I see myself well...that is a very hard question to answer. I want to be able
to not have to worry about paying the bills...Ideal would be modeling and acting full time but I still see
myself working hard for my money.
Please tell us something special about you that most people
Am a pesimist (I think that is the word)...I don't believe it until I see it.
Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?
My favorite saying that i live by: Twenty years from now you will be more
disapainted by the things that you didn't do than by the things you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail
away from the safe harbour. Catch the tradewinds in your sail. Explore, dream, discover. by Mark Twain.
Too many people to thank... Wayne Henderson my first personal
trainer who got me started and took me under his wings. and my boyfriend Mike Desmarais who trains
everyday by my side pushing me to my fullest potential....he just has to stay away from the cookies and not temp me!
