NPC Oregon is proud to introduce one of the most inspirational female bodybuilders in Oregon. Anne Marie Kam has been competing for awhile now and always comes in shape and does very well. After winning the Overall title at the 2010 Oregon State Championships, she decided to take her physique to the NPC USA Championships in Las Vegas, NV and walking away with a well deserved 6th place. Great Job Anne Marie Kam!

1. When and why did you decide to start competing?
In 1997 when I first met Sand (husband) at the gym. I asked him if he could make me like “that”, pointing to a poster on the bulletin board featuring Fitness Olympia Champion Mia Finnegan. And the eternal NPC Judge that he is, asked, "Have you ever considered the sport of bodybuilding?"

2. What makes you want to go farther in the sport?
I want to see how far my genetics can take me. I love knowing that there’s always room for improvement and want to see what those improvements look like. Also, rising up to the challenge of the high-intensity workouts that shape my character and physique is so rewarding.  

3. What type of training do you implement during contest prep and the in the off-season?
I can describe it in a single word, INTENSE! HIIT on the treadmill is my favorite torture. Push your personal limits every day, in every workout.

4. What is your favorite type of dieting meals and what is your favorite type of cheat meal?
Eating clean (organic & fresh) is a must. Free-range chicken, broccoli, fresh greens, yams, egg whites, blah, blah, blah, you know the drill. My special cheat is Key Lime Pie. Oops, did I say that out loud…?

5. Who are some of the people that have helped you along the way to get where you are now in life or in the sport?
In life, it’s my personal relationship with Jesus Christ, whom I met at the young age of seventeen. He gave me my wonderfully talented trainer and husband, Sand, who taught me everything about bodybuilding, health, and fitness.

6. Who or what inspires you to strive for more in the sport?
The sport of bodybuilding is so rewarding and empowering. It’s fun to see and feel the amazing results of the hard work. Inspiring, motivating and pushing others towards their goals inspires me to keep pushing harder towards my own goal of winning a national title.

7. What is next for you as a competitor?
NPC USA Bodybuilding Championships, July 30 & 31, 2010 in Las Vegas. It’s fun competing at the national level. Great friends, great physiques and an exciting atmosphere unlike any other.

8. What is your favorite memory good or bad while prepping or competing?
Best favorite memory was at my first NPC National competition in Atlanta 2005. At the night show they said they would be pulling the “top 5” aside when walking offstage to perform their routines. They didn’t pull me aside so I assumed I was finished. As I started putting on my warm-ups, I heard a gentleman shouting my name in the pump-up room. When I responded, he said, "Where are you going baby? You made Top Five!"

10. Anything you would like to say to all the visitors to NPC Oregon?

Anyone can achieve a fantastic physique through disciplined training and healthy eating. The wise and prudent person understands that excellent health and fitness is priceless, and that this lifestyle is a choice.
As someone once said, “Why would you choose failure when success is an option?”
