I am a multiple bikini & figure champion & have been competing for the past 5 years. I actually started training in the gym when I was 18 (BODY ACTION in Fairfield Heights), I’ve always loved it, and I went to watch my first bodybuilding show when I was 19 & always aspired to compete but never really thought I could do it. My training was a bit on & off between having my children, I only really got serious about weight training in 2008 after I lost 16kg & won my first Bikini Competition. Other than my children bodybuilding has been a major part of my life since then.

I am a very proud Mother of four wonderful children, 14, 13, 11 & 9. My job includes being an organiser, dietician, chef, disciplinary, alarm clock, encyclopaedia, gardener, fixer of all things, taxi driver, negotiator, nurse, homemaker, super conversationalist, financial controller, lifestyle coach, awesome hugger & a coffee drinker, lol. On a more serious note I am a designer I have been designing & sewing since I was 13, I have just started a new business making couture stage wear for Sports Models, fitness models, figure, physique & female & male body builders.

I have a range of experience, I stem from a sales, marketing & management background along with being in the Army Reserves, working in the entertainment industry, beauty, health (aged & disability care) & in more recently years the fitness & the supplement industries.

Having had 5 major operations & being told that I don’t have the genetics or the body to compete fueled my fire to succeed, I proved them all wrong but most of all I proved to myself that with commitment, consistency & believing in myself you really can do anything you put your mind too. I now find myself inspiring & motivating others by just being me & keeping it real, whether it’s at a workshop, in the gym or on Facebook, I feel so much Self Reward when someone says ‘you inspire me’ you can’t put a price on that.

I was first asked to judge for INBA NSW in 2011 after winning the overalls, I started judging in 2012 since then I have judged every NSW show & also gone on to judge in the ACT. I was absolutely honoured to be asked to be a National Judge at the Australians in 2013, I have come so far in such a short time in my judging career & I am loving it, Judging seems quite natural for me I think it is because I have been around the sport for such a long time, I live it & breath it.

I love seeing competitors get on stage & getting better time after time, makes me eager to get back up there myself…… One day ;)

Lastly, I am a very funny, friendly & approachable person so if you ever need feedback or have any questions for me please feel free to contact me or come up and say hi before or after a show. Till then, keep smiling. LIFT IT!! LOVE IT!! LIVE IT...... Bel
