Andrea Giacomi Extends Exit From Bodybuilding Stage

Break Time: Bodybuilder Andrea Giacomi is enjoying life away from the stage, for now.

After competing in four shows last year and placing first in two — the Atlantic States and Eastern USA — 35-year-old bodybuilder Andrea Giacomi appears to be continuing the hiatus that kept her from competing in 2010. “Throughout the year so far I have no desire to get on stage again,” she wrote on her blog following the recent USAs. “I kinda want to just move onto other things.”

Other things include a recent move back to her roots on the west coast after living in Manhattan, where Andrea will no doubt find brave new adventures to replace kayaking on the Hudson River and posing at the edge of a cliff while hiking in upstate New York.

Andrea started out doing figure and obstacle course fitness shows before shifting to bodybuilding in 2007. We caught up with the popular California bodybuilder for a photoshoot at her last turn, the ‘09 NPC Nationals; the 5-foot-8, 164-pound athlete — a former track, softball, volleyball and basketball player — finished 13th in the heavyweight class.

Sun-Splashed Muscle: Andrea relaxes by the fountain during her shoot in Florida.

Luckily, even though she doesn’t have the urge to flex under the spotlights in the near future, Andrea won’t be skipping out on the heavy weights in the gym any time soon. “Don’t get me wrong, I have no intentions of losing my muscle,” she promises. “I will continue to train in the gym everyday to maintain what I have.”

Just when she’ll get the itch to resume competing is anyone’s guess, but it’s likely we haven’t seen the last posedown from Andrea. She conveniently leaves the door open for a return, adding, “I never say never because you just never know.” For the latest, be sure to keep up with Andrea on her website and blog.
