About Stephanie Worsfold

It all started in 1992 when I went to watch my first competition... They didn't even have fitness contests yet, they only had one class which was bodybuilding, yes things have really changed! This show was in Stratford, Ontario Canada which is now the CPA Stratford Championships. After watching the contest I knew this was something I wanted to try. That whole year I trained my butt off, it worked out well since I worked at a gym as a trainer and aerobics instructor.

I knew a lot of people at the gym thought it was a joke for Steph to do a bodybuilding show since my background was dance, long distance running and I was an aerobics instructor! Needless to say I didn't carry much muscle mass, but that even motivated me more. After a year of intense heavy lifting and a strict diet I entered the 1993 Stratford bodybuilding show, which is now called the Jim Morris Classic. At the time it was on of the only shows in Ontario.

People including myself were pretty impressed by what I did to my physique in one year, and the great part about it was I did the training and dieting myself, with a few tips from a few friends from the gym. The day of the show there were 6 girls in my class and I placed second. When I look back to those pictures I looked like a string bean! I had some muscle but I was so shredded I only weighed 116 pounds and and my last show I competed at 130 pounds... quite a difference!

I was very excited about the outcome of this show! A few months later there was contest in Windsor called Ms. Fitness Canada, USA competition. It was one of the first fitness competitions in Canada. With my background of dance I thought this would be perfect. Thirteen girls entered this show, and I had a great time! I ended up winning the show; I enjoyed this much more than bodybuilding. After that competition I knew I had a new passion. Since then I've been in over 30 fitness competitions all over the world.

I received my IFBB Pro card in 1996 and qualified for the Fitness Olympia my first pro year. And much to my surprise I qualified again in 2007. That was when I decided to retire from the stage to start a family. I now have a 13 year old son or gift named Morgan William Roy Gleason. He really has been a gift! I lost both of my parents within the same year as having Morgan - life sure puts you through some bumpy roads.

I feel I've been blessed in this industry! I've had nothing but great experiences and I have met wonderful people. I have worked my ass off though, but when you work hard and have passion in what you do you will have success! PVL, which is now Fit Foods a Canadian manufacturer of PVL, Mutant, North Coast Naturals and Whey Gourmet have been very supportive and a big part of my life. As any competitor knows being amateur or a pro competitor is very expensive! Costumes, music, supplements, trainers and travel the list goes on. After my first few years competing as a pro I was thinking of retiring from the sport since it was getting financially stressful and that's when PVL stepped in right at the perfect time. I always used their supplements and contacted them about sponsorship. I worked a few events for them and then they signed me up, yaaa! I didn't have to retire.I atared as a sponsored athlete and then they hired me as a sales rep.

I've been with them for over 25 years now and they have been nothing but supportive and encouraging! I love their products so much that I left my job at the gym as a personal trainer and nutrition consultant to be an account manager for Fit Foods (and believe me I wasn’t a sales person!) Believing in the product and loving people I have become one of their top sales reps! Being one of their sponsored athletes I had the opportunity to host a television series called the PVL Finally Fit challenge on roger's television and Living well with PVL. It's a twelve week transformation series where we diet (also using PVL products like whey gourmet etc.) and train people to reach their physical and nutritional goals. The show ran for 5 years and has been a great success that has opened up many more doors for me in the industry. I am really excited to be hosting the 13th Annual CPA Natural Stephanie Worsfold Classic again this year! The show had been a huge success. Being an retired IFBB pro it's been amazing to be able to give something back to the sport. Keep fit, healthy and live life to the fullest!
