Jacquee Fuller: Guiding Others to LiveWell
By Rashida A. Marshall
Figure Pro, Jacquee Fuller is making moves in the world of fitness and competitive bodybuilding. As an open figure, master’s figure and physique professional in the NGA and IFPA bodybuilding federations, Jacquee is showing individuals that the only limitations that stop you from your fitness goals are the ones you allow yourself or others to place on you.
Jacquee not only achieves success on the stage. She also works behind the scenes to help create that same success for other competitors, as the COO of the Live Well Fit Team, through which individuals can receive custom training for competition prep or general healthy living.
Jacquee took the time to speak with AFIYA Magazine about her health and wellness journey, why she encourages her clients to practice balance and self-care, and whathe Live Well Fit Team has in store.
Rashida: Thank you for taking the time to speak with us. We’d love to know more about you and what it is that lead you to becoming a fitness coach, a competitor and health enthusiast.
Jacquee: I’ve pretty much been into fitness all my life. I started out as a gymnast from a really early age, I ran track and was also a cheerleader. I become a bodybuilder later in my adult years, but after competing for about 3-4 years, life began to take over and U stopped. I had kids, got married and I kind of fell off track with fitness for a while. Gymnastics was something I continued to compete in until age 29 but I ended up becoming injured. After my injury, I knew that I needed to get back in shape and competitive bodybuilding was an avenue for me to do it.
Rashida: From your past fitness endeavors prior to your injuries, and even up to now, how would you describe your entire experience as a competitor, and what have you been able to learn?
Jacquee: It was a bit difficult at first because I hadn’t realized how much it changed from when I was competing in the 90’s. I learned about bikini competitions from my Zumba instructor at the time, and I decided to go for it because it wasn’t something I had heard of before. Again, the whole prep process is much different. Dieting is different, the supplements are different. It was really a lot of stress on me to figure a new way out. Also, I was just coming off from an injury so I thought I wouldn’t be able to do it. However, in nine weeks I went from 170 pounds to 136 pounds before my first show, and then I got completely hooked after that and decided to continue with it. I’ve learned that you just can’t be stagnant and think that what you did before will work for you now. You have to keep progressing and learning. I took it upon myself to become educated and get my certifications in personal training, nutrition, along with a degrees in nutrition and everything else that I could that would help me grasp the concept of this whole lifestyle.
