By Bill Dobbins

I see a lot of female physique competitors who go into figure because they don’t think they can – or don’t want to – get as big and muscular as either amateur or pro bodybuilding champions. However, although you can make a lot of changes to the body with dieting and training, there seems to be very distinct differences in the genetics of bodybuilders vs. figure competitors.

I always wanted to be an “exotic dancer” and thought I would give it
a try. Some would think this was a strange profession choice, but I have
always been a little “different:)

In 1998 I won the Ms Nude BC title I travelled all over Canada as a Feature Exotic Dancer. I absolutely
loved dancing, but at times I would be denied work because I had too much muscle!

I “intimidated” the guys. That was the only downfall of dancing. I had been bodybuilding for 8 years when my dancing career came to an end and my bodybuilding career started.  I received a call from Denise Masino, IFBB Pro and Editor of “Muscle Elegance Magazine*.” She wanted me to shoot for her magazine at a location in the Bahamas! I dieted for the first time ever and Denise was very pleased when I showed up for
the shoot! I was thrilled!!! She was the one who told me that I should compete. I did that two months later and won the overall at my first competition. I then did the BC Provincials and won the overall in that as well!!!

jb12large

IFBB Fitness Pro Jodi Boam has been a gymnast for half of her life. She placed fifth in her IFBB pro debut and has the potential to be a top contender in every show she enters. She became the youngest IFBB Fitness Pro in Canada at age 23. Jodi was kind enough to share a bit more about herself days out from her first pro show on her homeland of Canada.

Look for her to make some noise this weekend at the Toronto Supershow and don’t be surprised if you see her competing on the Olympia stage this September. She has a fun personality and a killer set of arms. Read about her work out split, cooking dos and don’ts and why she’s a bad driver, even in her own drive way.

Name: Jodi Boam

Born in: Hamilton Ontario Canada

Number of years competing in gymnastics: 11 competitive years!

What level did you make it to? I was a national level gymnast by age 15, and qualified to compete at the World Championships, but unfortunately had to pull out the week of, due to injury!
