Debbie Patton IFBB Pro Bodybuilding
How did you get interested in
As I approached 30 and started gaining weight, I felt I needed a change.
What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?
Great, I won my class and the overall. Got to do my routine twice they
screwed up and made me go without my music and then I asked if I could
go again. Obviously a small show and they obliged.
What do you like and dislike about competing?
I like watching my body transform as I prepare for a show and meeting new friends. Not much to dislike, other than squeezing to make middleweights!
What are your future goals in this industry?
The coveted pro card.
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
Continue striving for health and happiness. Helping others and being a positive role model amongst my piers and future generations.
Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?
Special thanks to two very important men in my life. My boyfriend and trainer Abdul, and my Dad for being there since the beginning of this journey and supporting me 100%.
