Misty Green NPC Figure

How did you get interested in bodybuilding/working out?

My track coach in college had me doing serious weight workouts that were mainly focused around explosion techniques and circuit training. I fell in love with the weight room from there. It just felt so good with the sweat, strain and energy that went into the gym. A couple years after college, a girlfriend of mine started talking about this new division of figure. I lived in Orlando at the time and we went to see our first show in Tampa together. It was awesome and she started competing that next year, I on the other hand enjoyed being a spectator at the time and mainly focused on running and circuit training. About two years later, my sister and I were helping my brother recover from a coma and needless to say things were somewhat stressful and I needed an outlet for myself. I got into serious training and went to a friend of mine to help me with a diet. I couldn't think of a better way to spend my spare time while helping my brother recover. After that, I was hooked on competing! My brother is doing great and is super supportive as well as the rest of my family.

What was your first show like, any interesting experiences?

My first show, like anyone else's was a major learning experience. I had fun not only with the show but also getting to know the other gals backstage. Oh, and also I learned not to glue my suit before taking one last potty break.

What do you like and dislike about competing?

I absolutely love the training and the constant challenge with myself. I just really enjoying getting myself to my breaking point and then going just another step past that point. The only thing that I could say that I dislike is not being able to eat ice cream during competition time, but that's all part of the challenge now isn't it! I know most find it frustrating not really knowing what the judges are looking for. But, I think you can overcome that by remembering that you are really competing against yourself. I know it sounds cheesy, but if a person can continue to come in looking their absolute best then you just have to know that you did everything you could. And just continue to learn what is best for you and your body.

What are your future goals in this industry?

Honestly, I would be lying if I didn't say that I want to go to the top. I really enjoy competing and would love to get involved in every aspect that this industry has to offer.

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?

Doing whatever makes me smile!

Please tell us something special about you that most people wouldn't know?

Well, most people don't know that I am mutt:) My mom is from Thailand and was one of the first in her family to come to the US and my daddy is a good ole boy from the backwoods of Alabama but is also ½ Cherokee Indian. So I guess that make me a Cherokee, Thai, Bama girl. Can you imagine what our family reunions where like! Talk about two completely different cultures.

Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?

I would love to thank my family, friends, fellow gym rats and main man Nicky (who is not only an amazing trainer but also a rock for me) for all of the continued love and support.
