Malea Jensen NPC Bodybuilding
How did you get interested in
I have always been an athlete. I participated in basketball, softball,
golf, and volleyball growing up. When I graduated from Wartburg College,
I became more involved in weightlifting and did my first show shortly
What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?
I loved it! I was so full of enthusiasm, and I knew I was "all that".
ONE must have that kind of attitude to be good at what they do, no matter
what it is, but also must remember good sportsmanship, and learn to
What do you like and dislike about competing?
Competing is tough. If you don't like to diet, don't want to do cardio,
don't want to pose, then you have no business in the sport. Go lift
and be happy!
What are your future goals in this industry?
Of course, I want to make an impact. I have many do not have...........I
am a doctor. I have a job to go back to when I come off the stage. I
have lives to touch and heal. An added bonus would be my pro card!
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
A Retired Doc!!! I will be lifting hard, doing cardio, and sharing my
knowledge with others. I may have a gym, I may not. Heck, I may be running
half marathons on the beach some day. Who knows. God will let me know
when I ask Him!
Please tell us something special about you that most people
Oh sheesh, there is not much that people do not know about me. I am
an open book. OK, here is one that some know and others don't--I tape
my soap every day. I have watched All My Children for the past 15 years.
Don't mess with my VCR or you will get a lashing in the gym next time
Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?
Of course there are many people I would like to thank! I would like
to thank my nurses and coworkers for supporting me with my diet and
attitude. They are with me more than anyone. And, I would love to thank
my dad for providing me with discipline while growing up. He has taught
me so many things about winnig and losing, about being the best I can
be all the time....in all that I do. And, I would like to thank my workout
partners (Jill, Al, Jim, Cracker, and all my pals at the gym.
not one past placing means a thing the
day you go up on stage. The day is YOURS if you have prepared yourself
