Thank you for visiting my website. 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. The INBF has stringent drug testing standards. I am proud of the fact that we do a thorough test 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.
I have gained a new appreciation for bodybuilding. On August 28th, 2007, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Jamie Broderick. Pregnancy is about the farthest from contest preparation you can be but all of the things I learned about nutrition and training helped me more than I ever imagined. I had a great team helping me with the delivery. Special thanks to my doctor, Mark Aversa, my doula, Madeline Browning and my nurse, former INBF figure competitor, Bonnie Gallacher Foley. With their help and my husband Jim Broderick, I was able to give birth without medication. All of the working out and good nutrition made it possible. Winning 4 World Championships was awesome but nothing in my life compares to the birth of my daughter. It was the most amazing experience of my life. Jamie is truly a blessing.
For all of you Mom’s and Dad’s who compete, I have so much respect. It is difficult enough when you only have to worry about yourself let alone one or more children. I have many people ask when I will compete again and I am not really sure. I do miss it. The last World Championships I competed in was 2004 and that was my fourth World title. Right now, I spend most of my free time with my daughter. I will compete again at some point but there is no rush for me since I know, there will always be another show.
As you prepare to compete, enjoy the process because it will make your journey to stage a lot more meaningful. You will take what they have learned preparing and competing and it will impact so many facets of your life. You never know when it will come in handy.
This update is long overdue! I was blessed with a beautiful son, James Thomas Broderick. He was born on April 13th, 2010. I continue to work very hard promoting natural bodybuilding and figure. It is a little crazy with two little kids running around but it is all-good. My husband Jim and I are enjoying every minute. Having children has definitely given me a new appreciation for all men and women who compete who have children. With their activities, it is tough to juggle everything and make time to train properly. I commend all of you! If you are looking to get involved, we have many classes and seminars to help you with your journey.
For 2008, the Northeast Classic is being held in conjunction with the WNBF Pro American. The show is great for beginners as well as Pros. If you have never seen a bodybuilding and figure show, this is a great one because you will see all levels. If you are interested in competing, please get in touch with me. There are so many great shows all over the United States. There are lots of people who can help you prepare. Good luck preparing for the INBF Northeast Classic
