Stefanie Richard

Fitness Model & National Figure Athlete

As a teenager, I loved being active doing individual sports and go to the gym, do cardio. I have always wanted to have a model shape, like many young girls, but it never worked, so I found through training that my body is built to be more athletic than thin ... And I love that!

I love a healthy lifestyle that gives me a balanced diet. I started training seriously in April 2008 when I met my coach Larry Vinette. He taught me a lot and it changed my life. I began to compete in November 2008 in Las Vegas, where i fell in love with this sport.

First things first, it was Larry who came up with the idea of competing, and i thought it was a great idea because i trained hard and had already started a healthy lifestyle. At my first competition, I competed as a fitness model and bikini model after only 6 months strength training. When I saw the competitors in figure, I knew that this category was for me. I found the physiques very impressive and I saw a new challenge for me. I think it is a perfect balance between bodybuilding and femininity. Since that day, I train solely as a figure athlete.

I have a passion for competition but also modeling, so I love to combine the two. You can see me in several fitness magazines. I love to travel, compete and do photo shoots around the world.

My goal is to get my pro card, so I work hard for that. With my job, training, competitions and photo shoots I have a busy life, but I love being busy, I need that adrenaline. I always try to have a good balance between all these elements in my life, it is the key to success. Luckily, my husband encourages me in my goals and it is very important to me. It is teamwork!
