Autumn Raby Canada Amateur Bodybuilding
How did you get interested in bodybuilding/working
I met "Big G" my trainer about 9 years ago. I always wanted to try
working out but had no clue what to do when I got into the gym.
Plus, there is a little intimidation factor. I was 110 lbs when
I first started. I was pretty scared of those big heavy weights.
How was your first show like, any interesting experiences?
I used to be a Feature Exotic Dancer
that travelled all around Canada doing my fire shows and such. I had
no worries about being on stage. While dancing I freaked a lot of
people out because of my muscles. At my first bodybuilding competiton,
Northern Classic, it was really nice to be appreciated for all my
hard efforts in the gym and people in the audience were great!!! I
didn't even think of competing until Denise Masino told me to:) She
flew me to the Bahamas for a photo shoot for Muscle Elegance Magazine
and that is where it all began. April 1st-2003
What do you like and dislike about competing?
I like the changing looks from when I start dieting to when I finish.
As my physique changes my femininity changes as well which I think
is just so sexy. What I dislike about competitions is, to be honest,
the amount of time given during the posing round. When i danced I
had the luxury of 22 mins on stage. With bodybuilding I am rushed
off only after a minute and a half. As a fan and a competitor I wish
this would change.
What are your future goals in this industry?
I will continue to compete for my Pro Card and then compete as a Pro.
However, my website and my fans are the reason I am even in this industry.
Competing for me is fun and my fans get to watch the whole process
which is why I do this.
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
I will be continuing with my website and video series, playing with
my girlfriends ALOT, and doing a lot more work with Denise Masino
and the Muscle Elegance gang. I will also be competing, hopefully
in the IFBB Pro division.
Please tell us something special about you that most people
100% bi-sexual. I really dig girls;)
Any additional notes?
Check out my website www.autumnsparadise.com
I am always happy to hear from new fans. I answer all emails personally,
have a daily journal, over 45,000 pics and video clips. I also have
a video series that is like no other female muscle series out there!!!
Go and have a look;)
