Female Bodybuilder Desiree Ellis Tribute

Desiree Ellis's Bio

I was born in London, England. I have 4 sisters and one brother. I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba from the age of nine, and then moved to Vancouver BC a year after graduating high school.

I was always athletic growing up. I ran track all through high school as a sprinter and a hurdler. I also played soccer, which was my favorite team sport, and did a bit of gymnastics. I also have a martial arts background in kickboxing and kogido.

I used to be a cardio person. I was a runner, then taught aerobics for a few years. Also did a lot of cycling. I found weight training very boring at first. I didn't really start weight training until I was 24 years old after spraining my ankle very badly one day while running and couldn't run for 5 months. During this time I started spending a lot more time in the gym doing weights just to stay in shape since I couldn't do anything else. I never trained my legs for the first few months because they were a lot bigger than my upper body from all those years of running.

After doing weights for a couple of months I started noticing the definition I was starting to get in my upper body and liked it. So I continued and have been hooked on it ever since.

I had my daughter a year later in 1990, then started back with the weights when she was 6 months old. I had no intention of being a body builder at first. People in the gym would tell me I had a good physique and should try competing. After about a year, my daughter was a year and a half, I was talked into doing a show. So I did, and won, and have been competing ever since.

I love training hard and pushing myself to the extreme. I also love the challenge of competing and the discipline it takes when trying to sculpt your body into the best shape possible. I competed in 8 shows between 1992 and 1996, always placing in the top three positions until finally winning my pro card at the Canadian National Bodybuilding Championships in 1996 by taking middleweight class and overall title. My forth time there. Bodybuilding has been a great experience for me and has gained me a lot of recognition in the magazines and in my community. It's now 2006, it's hard to believe sometimes that I'm still competing after 14 years. A lot has happened over the years, I've met a lot of wonderful people and have had many positive experiences. I finally make it to the Ms Olympia Contest in 2004, something I never dreamed of when I first entered this sport, and have since competed there twice now. But my biggest moment I have to say way getting my first invite to the Arnold Classic in 2005 which was such an honor. To be recognized as one of the top athletes in the world in your sport was really amazing, and since then I've had 2 invites. I still enjoy competing and training and pushing myself to the limit, and will continue to do what I've always done and that is to just take it one show at a time. I'd like to thanks once again all my family and friends who have supported and stood by me over the years. Also a big thanks to all my fans who have followed my career over the years for always being so supportive.
