Track & Field Whiz Extends Reach to Figure Competitions

Air Apparent: Track star Tissilli Brandi hopes to reach new heights in NPC figure.

The latest primetime athlete premiering on the studio is the dynamic and highly talented Tissilli Brandi, a longtime track & field star who plans to take up a new challenge as an NPC figure competitor later this year.

The Atlanta native began track pursuit during her early teens and has since become a formidable presence in the sport, having produced results that turned her into a national standout and an Olympic hopeful. Along the way, she earned an athletic scholarship to the University of Alabama and showed plenty of academic as well as athletic prowess while at Tuscaloosa, graduating with degrees in both psychology and sociology.

These days, in addition to track dreams and figure aspirations, the ambitious 26-year-old is also a certified personal trainer with her own business called Total Trans4mations, a brainstorm first launched when her knowledge of health and fitness helped a severely overweight friend turn her life around.

In this excellent profile video, you can see Tissilli enthusiastically directing clients through intense boot camp sessions, revealing that her passion for helping others achieve their fitness goals is just as important as reaching her own — a hallmark of some of the best.

We’re excited to see what kind of impact Tissilli has on the industry’s most popular amateur figure stage. Already a sturdy package at 5-foot-4 and 130-pounds, exchanging running shoes for figure heels should be a breeze for this sweet Georgia peach.
