Die finnische Juniorin:

Where and when were you born?
I was born on May 1st, 1987, in Vantaa, Finland.

What is your profession?
I graduated from High School 2006 fall and now I’m working for a computer company.

Were you involved in sports or fitness prior to bodybuilding and how did you get started with weight training?
When I was still high school I started working out at a local gym; doing aerobics, indoor cycling, and lifting weights. A female personal trainer at the gym told me I looked really good and suggested I try competing in figure. But as I got more serious about training, I started to get more interested in bodybuilding. I started looking at pictures of female bodybuilders like Cindy Phillips and Britt Miller on the internet and thought that they looked awesome and so feminine. I decided that's how I wanted to look too and I joined the gym in Helsinki where Inkeri Salminen (one of the top female bodybuilders in Finland) trained. I did my first show, Finnish Nationals, in October 2007.

Was it a goal for you to compete in bodybuilding competitions right from the beginning or was it something that grew in your mind as time went on and you saw the progress in your body?
Actually I was interested in figure shows initially, but as I got more serious about training, I started to get more interested in bodybuilding. When I saw myself improving, I knew I wanted to compete some day.

Can you give me your competition history?
I competed at Finnish Nationals – my first show - in October 2007. I took 1st in the teen division and 3rd place from the open class.

Which contest has been your biggest success; which has had the most meaning to you?
Well, the 2007 Finnish Nationals is the first show I’ve done, so I’d have to say that one, lol. I went through a long 24-week diet, which was rough mentally and physically, but it was amazing to see myself in contest shape for the first time. I’m now more motivated than ever to continue and achieve more in bodybuilding.

Please tell me something about your training routine (ie: how many days per week / training split /cardio, etc.)
Monday: off (cardio)
Tuesday: Chest and bi's, abs
Wednesday: Back and traps
Thursday: Biceps and triceps, abs
Friday: off (cardio)
Saturday: Legs
Sunday: Shoulders and triceps, abs
I like to change up my workouts in order to focus on different muscle groups, especially bodyparts I want to improve. For example, since my show, I’ve started to focus on my arms more, so that's why I train them twice a week. I do cardio for about 20-30 minutes on a treadmill after my workout. Most of the time I do intervals.
