    I have been legally blind since birth due to a congenital condition called Achromatopsia. Legally blind means that even with correction your vision is worse than 20/200 which is the biggest E on the eye chart. Due to this condition, I have reduced visual acuity 20/400-20/600, severe light sensitivity and am totally color blind. This has affected my life in many ways; for example, I have never driven, I never did sports or PE throughout my school years and I have a very difficult time recognizing people or being able to see if they are waving to me for example.

    I attended San Diego State University and studied Computer Science and spent a few years working as a computer programmer. I also am a certified Montessori Primary Teacher.

    My journey into bodybuilding began in 1995 when I was very overweight and joined a gym for the first time. You can read all about my transformation here. In 2002, I competed in my first bodybuilding competition. I did two more that year and one in 2003. Having come from being overweight, I had a fear of getting "fat" again so I switched to figure for 2004 and 2006 thinking it was a way to continue to compete but also stay small. In 2007, my trainer, Jeremy Minihan, suggested I go back to bodybuilding and that is what I did for Jr Nationals that year. I couldn't be happier! I truly enjoy every aspect of bodybuilding: the heavy lifting, making necessary changes to my physique, watching the changes unfold as I diet for a show and being up on stage knowing I put everything I had into it. I have met so many wonderful people doing this sport. I knew I had obtained success in bodybuilding by winning the middle weight class and the overall at the 2009 NPC Jr Nationals. I was so excited and shocked! I could not believe that was me; the once fat person who didn't want to be seen was the overall winner in a national level bodybuilding competiton. Words can't descibe the feeling. This only added fuel to my desire to continue to strive for higher goals. And, most recently I reached another goal by bringing my best overall package to the 2011 IFBB North American Championships, a Pro Qualifier, where I placed first in open middleweight and 1st in over 35 middleweight.

    iForce Nutrition is proud to announce that Suzanne is now here to help you all out on the board. Think you know how to bodybuild better than a girl? GUESS AGAIN.


    Suzanne is an expert in diet, training, and supplementation. She works directly with NPC Super Heavy Weight Dusty Hanshaw and has even taught him a few things! If you need help on anything whatsoever related to iForce, working out, or your diet, please shoot her a line!

    Thank everyone for the warm welcome!

    It's been a crazy busy few weeks.My daughter got into town for her winter break and my mom is visiting from Maine. The Monday after Christmas Chase, Christine and I pack up the 2 dogs and we drove to Palm Desert to my sisters house and my entire family was there first time in years everyone was together for Christmas. then we went down to San Diego so I could get some ART form Derik Farnsworth.

    My training split right now is
    Sat Legs
    sun train
    mon off
    Tues train
    Wed train
    Thur Train
    Fri off

    Legs is always Saturday because we make the trip out to Metroflex. It is about an hour each way. Right now the other days are changing each week so that each week one of my body parts is hit twice except chest it will always be only once a week. Since North Americans I have been working with Dusty Hanshaw so he is doing my diet and training.

    Over the years I have trained 5-6 days a week. I do best on a diet of mod carbs, mod protein, low fat. Right now we are do just a little bit of cardio 20 min twice a week (my off days) I have a stepmill at home so that's not to bad

    I will be starting up a training journal as i get ready for USAs so the rest of my off season and prep.
