Female Bodybuilder - Nancy Andrews
I started competing in bodybuilding in 1994. I never really had a desire to compete but once I did it, my passion for the sport grew. I have promoted natural bodybuilding since 1995. I have helped hundreds of people get involved in the sport. I want to give all athletes the opportunity to compete in a well-run fair show.
I am proud of the fact that we do a thorough drug testing and give athletes the opportunity to compete on a fair playing field against other drug free athletes. If you have the desire to compete, get out there and do it! Bodybuilding is a true individual sport and all of the competition ultimately is with yourself.
After winning two World Championships I was faced with a new challenge that no athletes like but it always seems to par for the course, injuries. The past four years, I have spent more time rehabbing my knee than training legs. I have had four surgeries on it within the last two years. I knew I could be better and still have the desire to compete with the best natural bodybuilders in the world. So I continued to train and work through my restrictions. My goal was to compete in the World Championships in 2003.
My training regimen and preparations for competition have changed dramatically because of all of the limitations my knee condition has put on me. This year, I won my third World Championship. I had the help of Dr. Joe Klemczewski and also my physical therapist, Lisa Knox. They both played key roles in helping me achieve my goals. I could not have done it if it were not for their expertise.
