I want to be more buffer, so I can train and be trained!
Dear Physical Pfitters,
I was really good in sports in school. I was excellent in ping pong. I was known as Suzi The Ball Sucker, because I would destroy balls. I flattened a couple with my power. Grrr! So, I know I’ll be great at weightlifting. I usually use free weights, but I’ve always wanted to be a bodybuilder. Cuz muscles are hot, and I want to wear tiny bikinis and be ripped.
I’m not super confident with my coaching skills with this sport, and I’m not sure how guns are involved in weightlifting, but I can hold a gun and curl one if I have to. They just kind of scare me a little.

I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
