Jill Dearmin Scores in Physique Transition
Jill Dearmin this year added her name to a growing list of competitors having great success after crossing over to the women’s physique division. After posting three top-five finishes at Jr. USAs, Junior Nationals and Team Universe, the tireless former figure competitor hit her mark at NPC North Americans, where she earned a pro card by winning the 35-and-over medium class.
The Scottish-born competitor now lives in Florida where she works as a highly renowned personal trainer and runs her own business, called i-Candy Fit, out of Juno Beach Fitness. Jill was even featured in this inspiring segment on the local news for the NBC affiliate out of West Palm Beach (positive press on the sport in mainstream media for a change). It featured some comments from Jill and three of her most accomplished clients—one placed second in her debut competition and another lost over two hundred pounds.
The segment aired in November of 2010, well before the 43-year-old was to make some strides for herself. During 2011, she competed in four national-level shows and made the top ten in just two. She’s been on the rise ever since and may have brought her best package yet to the North Americans. Her pro debut would come shortly after, at the Valenti Gold Cup Pro in her homestate. Jill finished in the eight spot.
