2009 Western Canadians
Denise Yeng - Figure - Short Class
Denise may have been the shortest competitor here, but packed quite a massive punch.
This was only her first competition but way ahead of the game in terms of the tapered
look and muscle shapes so coveted at higher level shows. No weak points, so balanced and as she tweaks
her physique can only get better! In her own words, "I was inspired by my mom
who has always been in awesome shape, and who referred me to Shawn Tan to help me reach
my goal of doing a Figure Comp. Before this, I was involved in some sports (kickboxing,
tennis, running) but never with the same amount of dedication I had for the show. I trained
very hard with Shawn for the past year and was very strict with my diet to achieve this,
and it has now become a lifestyle change for me... My short-term goal is to rock at Provincials,
and my long-term goal is to earn my pro card one day and see myself in a Muscle & Fitness,
Oxygen, or Women's Health magazine!"
Speaking of being in front of the camera,
we've added some poolside photos from a short shoot the following day.
