Amanda Folstad Tops Heavyweights in Culver City

A recent heavyweight trophy suggests Amanda is having little trouble adjusting to life as a bodybuilder. The same can't be said for her competition.

Ahead Of Her Class: A recent heavyweight trophy suggests Amanda is quickly adjusting to life as a bodybuilder.

Still savoring a shift from figure to bodybuilding that has so far produced smiles and a great deal of results, Amanda Folstad was given another reason to relish the change last weekend at the Excalibur Figure & Bodybuilding Show.

Waltzing into the same California venue where she finished 12th in her class while competing in figure last year, Amanda took the stage as a bodybuilder and won the heavyweight division.

While middleweight Mavi Gioia eventually claimed the overall title, Amanda was still energized by the accomplishment and basking in the glow of her new scenery. “I’m very glad I switched to bodybuilding,” she wrote me after the show. “My body is much more built for bodybuilding. I love it!”

And it definitely shows. Once told she was too lean and muscular for figure, Amanda is looking like a chiseled powerhouse ready to contend for a pro card.

The striking blonde beauty from Arizona will look to carry her momentum into ‘09, angling to rock the National stage at the USAs next summer.
