Emily Dial – IFBB Bikini Pro
DIVISION/STATUS: IFBB Bikini Pro
HEIGHT/COMPETITION: 5 FT 3.5 IN
BIO: I was born & raised in Atlanta, Georgia and was a competitive cheerleader and gymnast for 10 years, so fitness was always a big part of my life growing up. I graduated from the University of Georgia (go Dawgs!) and had always wanted to live on the West Coast, so I spontaneously moved to San Diego after graduation. In college, fitness definitely took a backseat to the partying lifestyle I had at the time. Moving to San Diego re-ignited my passion for fitness and my competitive drive led me to sign up for my first bikini competition. Two and a half years and eight shows (three national) later, I earned my IFBB pro card! I am so eager and excited to start my journey to the pro stage with my Body by O team under Kim’s continued guidance & support.

BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED: Before Nationals, Kim told me, “don’t chase it [your pro card], let it come to you.” Throughout this prep, I didn’t stress about whether I would be ready for what would happen if I did/didn’t earn my pro card. I made a point to not compare myself to anyone else on Instagram or try and figure out who I would be competing against. Going into Nationals, I was calm, collected and content regardless of the outcome; I think that mindset was the main element in having success at this show.
