Interview with Beckie Boddie
TF: Tell us a bit about yourself.
BB: I’m really just your average, everyday, girl next door. I work hard and I train hard. I love life and constantly putting myself to the test.
TF: When did fitness become a part of your life?
BB: Fitness has always been apart of my life. As a child I participated and competed in many different sports and fitness activities such as gymnastic, softball, track, and cross country running. My track coach in high school was the first person to put a set of weights in my hands
TF: What is it you enjoy most about competing?
BB: I love the challenge, I love testing myself and watching the transformation. It never happens the same way twice. I really enjoy the learning experience because my body is constantly changing. It is truly amazing how efficient the human body can be, all we have to do is listen to it.
BB: There is always time to play, take care of your business now!
TF: What is your training philosophy?
BB: Keep it confused. The body adapts quickly, make sure to mix it up.
TF: That being said what does a typical training week look like for you?
BB: Monday – Back; Tuesday – Quads; Wends –Shoulders and chest; Thursday – Bic, trics, and abs; Friday – rest day; Saturday – Hams and glutes, Sunday – plyo’s
TF: What is your philosophy on nutrition?
BB: Keep it clean, it’s easier to maintain than get it back.
TF: Are supplements a part of your regimen? If so, what are some that you use?
BB: Yes, BCAA’s, multi vitamin, glutamine, and Omega-3 just to list a few.
TF: What or who motivates you to keep going?
BB: I love what I do, I love training and competing. I love helping people reach their fitness goals. When you a client for the first time walking around with their head down and shoulders hunched over, then watch the progress and see them stand up tall and proud with a beautiful smile on their face. That does it for me!
TF: What’s your least favorite body part to train?
TF: What accomplishments are you most proud of in the world of fitness?
BB: I am proud just to be able to get on stage and do well. I take pride in what I do and we as competitors have but a few seconds to show all of our hard work. It is my goal to stand up and stand out.
TF: What advice can you give to someone looking to start competing?
BB: If you have ever thought of competing just go for it, but remember this… Coaches, teachers, and role models are great to have for encouragement and direction but live in your own light, not in someone else’s shadow.
TF: What can you tell us about yourself that most people wouldn’t know about you?
BB: I love to go bowling…
