This young lady is a former gymnast who went on to compete in figure, and after much thought gave fitness a try. Wise move on her part as she turned pro within a year (2nd in her class at the 2007 NPC Team Universe (http://www.musculardevelopment.com/browse/index.php?mode=browse&id=12186&eventcode=1134)).

She went on to place 6th at her very first pro show, the 2007 IFBB Atlantic City Pro (http://www.musculardevelopment.com/browse/index.php?mode=browse&id=12186&eventcode=1184).

Her routine at the Atlantic City Pro...

Awwww, you guys are all the best!

Thanks to each of you for the nice comments, I really appreciate it sooo much!

I'm really glad everyone seemed to like the routine too....going into it, I knew it would be a risk, because it was "different," and sometimes different is received well, and sometimes it backfires. What's crazy is that the woman that did the choreography had never seen a fitness routine in her life :)

Sioux, thanks for developing this board. I'm sure I speak for all of us here when I say we all really appreciate your dedication and support for us lady competitors!

Thanks again everyone!

I think Riley is one of the most exciting things going in the entire physique industry right now. The very first time I saw her physique, I knew she was going to be special. She quickly turned pro, and now is positioned to dominate the fitness ranks in 08/09. I can't wait to see how her career evolves - she's got "it".

Oh, and it doesn't hurt that she's a Mizzou girl, either! :D

TigerEyes
02-18-2008, 06:47 PM
Wow, Joe, thanks so much for the nice comment! I'm really hoping to have a great year in 2008. I'm looking forward to putting together my new routine, and I'm really excited to see what improvements I've made to my physique in the off-season once i get some of this extra "fluff" off ;)

It's still really strange to me that I am considered a "pro" at this sport. I feel like I am so new to everything and have a LOT more to learn, and a LOT more improvements to make.
If you look at pictures from the figure show I did in 2006, the changes to my physique are pretty drastic, so I was defintiely pleased with how I looked at all of my shows, and I was most happy with how I looked at Team Universe. BUT, despite having my best physique to date at that show, I really believe it was my routine that got me my pro-card (never did see the score sheet from that show), and I know for sure that it was my routines that helped me to place 6th in AC.
I was a gymnast for 15 years, so based on that background, I should be good at the routine rounds ;).
But it's my physique that I need to improve most. I always tell people that if I was a figure competitor, I would probably barely even be at the national level right now.
I really look up to many of the amateur figure ladies and bodybuilders because I know how hard it is to get a pro card in those divisions, and I know there are probably many figure competitors with superior physiques to mine that still don't have pro-cards. I was just lucky enough entering into this sport to have the gymnastics background (and a prep advisor that I work really well with)...and there are always far fewer fitness competitors (so if any of you figure ladies have any gymnastics or dance backgrounds, you really should consider giving fitness a try...hint hint :))

Like I said, I know I still have a lot to learn, and I know that I have a great contest prep advisor that has pretty much worked wonders for my physique, so hopefully with the improvements I've made this off-season I can really have a great showing in 2008.
AND....you guys are all putting a lot of pressure on me with all of the nice comments about my routine....it just means whatever I come up with this year has to be even better!!! ;)

Alli
02-18-2008, 06:57 PM
Everyone has room to improve Erin, its what keeps us going in the sport- if you have nothing to improve on then you have no goals to work towards:)

Your routines are amazing. And its amazing to me how stellar they are for how novice you are to fitness, although you were a gymnast for years its still impressive!!! And your physique is still awesome despite the improvements you may think you need to make. The perk is your're young (like me! hehe) and we have time to build!

I can't wait to see how you do in 2008... I'm so excited for you!!

You improved your physique so much, in such a short time.

What is the weight difference between the photos?

TigerEyes
02-18-2008, 09:04 PM
Actually, believe it or not, I think I weighed just about the same in all 3 shows. I was around 123-125lbs....big difference between 06 and 07 conditioning though :)

'ol Tiger Eyes impressed me in a MAJOR way this weekend. I was so glad to finally get to shoot with her - girl can move some SERIOUS weight in the gym (as can Allifit!). VERY impressive.

I will post a review and some samples of our gym shoot hopefully by the end of the week. But the short story is - Alli and Erin DELIVERED on their gym shoot, and they are 2 of the most professional models in the industry. They "Get it", and I look forward to working more with them in the near future!

(now, if I could just get un-tonguetied and stop calling them Allen and Eri) LOL

Amen to all that Joe said above.

Erin and Alli were a joy to work with, and I hope we have the opportunity of working with them again in the near future. Plus based on what I saw in the gym no two competitors train harder.

(and Alli, no more winking candids, I promise lol)

Best

Hi MsGuns!
That picture was taken in NYC by Weiferd Watts. I'm not even sure what the background is...we just walked around the city and he found interesting backgrounds that he wanted to shoot up against.
I was jumping off of the ground (everyone thinks its a trampoline), but the ground is right where the bottom of the picture ends. I think it looks like I"m up really high because of the position of the jump. If my legs were straight underneath me, it would only look like I am a foot off the ground.

Weiferd is a great photographer...very unique. His site is weifoto.com, and he also has a myspace page with lots of sample photos in his albums. He has an album called "Flight" which is really amazing :respect:

Hey everyone, as a guy I never really understood gymnastics’ talk, but since I have been dating Erin over 3 1/2 years now, I have finally learned the talk and understand it now. I have 2 things to say about her routine and music for this years up and coming shows. 1) The music is even better then last year and 2) Her routine from what she described to me yesterday will be 1,000 X better then last year!!! I promised Erin I wouldn’t give anything away. So this is all I can say, just look for it at the Houston Pro, you will be very shocked!

TigerEyes
03-20-2008, 11:49 AM
With regards to my new routine....I LOVE the music this year because I actaully sat down with my choreographer and we did the whole thing (after I already had music done and then decided it just wasn't quite what I wanted).

The routine is brand new, so its FAR from being complete (as in...I've only done choreography and not any of the skills in it yet), but I can already tell that its going to be FUN to perform. And I think thats one of the most important things...if you are truly enjoying performing the routine, the audience will enjoy it as well :SBT:
From all of the feedback I've gotten, it seems that last years routine will be a tough act to follow, so I hope that everyone will love the routine this year as much as I do!

Gymrat will most definitely be coming out to Houston with me, even if I have to pay for him myself ;) He keeps me from driving myself nuts at the shows, so his presence is essential :kiss: AND he starts his prep the following week, so it will be a nice mini-vacation for him :frog:
So yes, he will most likely be filming it.

Erin did an interview over at NJBodyBuilding.com shortly after turning pro at the 2007 NPC Team Universe...

CLICK HERE (http://www.njbbinterviews.com/erinmarieriley.html)

JB> How does it feel to win an IFBB PRO Card?

ER> It is an absolutely amazing feeling. My trainer and I set the goal to compete this year at the Team Universe in fitness way back in January. With it being my first year, we really had no idea how it would go, but I made the goal for myself to place in the Top 5. So when I found out that I was in the top 5, I was so excited. When they called my name for 2nd place it was almost unreal. All of the long hours of training and strict dieting were definitely worth it, and I could not be more excited.

Thanks for posting the video Sioux, you're the best!!

I started doing that style of workout about 6 weeks ago, usually twice per week on my routine practice days. It's really challenging, but actually a lot of fun, and I always leave feeling like I can do anything, LOL. And, it's a lot of fun to do something completely different like that. A few weeks ago he had me flipping a 400lb tire for cardio, and doing cleans/presses with a keg....oh, and ask gymrat about the "weight tree race" ;) (unfortunately, we didn't get that on video) :D

For my contest prep I work with Robert Samborsky, owner of Apollon Gym. He does my diet and training plan, and he's the best when it comes to prep!

The conditioning workouts I do with Jon Chipko of Body Goals. I originally started working with Jon because of a lower back injury (he does a lot of injury rehab and prevention work). He helped "fix" my back, and then I started doing the conditioning workouts with him. It's a lot of functional training that helps my routines tremendously! He trains all different kinds of athletes, but works a lot with strongman competitors (hence the style of workout, LOL).

AND, in addition to that, I have recently been working with IFBB Figure Pro Irina Veselova to help really dial in my physique....

So I'm getting all kinds of help this year, LOL. One thing I can say, is that I've really enjoyed my training for this prep, and this is probably the hardest I've ever worked, so I'm really hoping it pays off :D

Erin was recently interviewed by Isaac Hinds............

http://www.hardbody.com/news/2008/06/30/erin-set-to-rile-things-up-in-houston/

What advice do you have for other women thinking of trying their hand in fitness but not sure they can put together a routine?

I always encourage women to give fitness a try because it is just so rewarding! I think the idea that you need to be able to do gymnastics to be successful in fitness scares some women off. But there are so many great pros that do not have a gymnastics background, and yet they still put together some amazing routines! My best advice is to find what you are good at, whether it be dance, gymnastics, aerobics, cheerleading, etc- and build your routine from that. If you are comfortable and having a blast with your routine performance, the audience will see that, and they will love it!

Hi Everyone and thank you for the nice comments and support!

Joe, you are too funny sometimes. I think you are just biased b/c I am a fellow Mizzou Tiger :D But thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement!

Dane, thank you for introducing yourself to me backstage! It's always nice to meet someone from the boards in person. I'm always so nervous and anxious backstage, and I can never sit still. So I apologize if I seemed distracted, LOL. Dan Ray thought I was nuts b/c all I kept doing was walking back and forth along the backstage area :nuts:

Drex! It was nice to meet you too, even if it was only for a few seconds in the elevator. Hopefully we can chat more next time. I'm from central Jersey as well.....Woodbridge Township...most famous for the mall, LOL.

Hi Krissy! Thank you so much. And BTW, you looked fabulous in Jacksonville! Good luck at your next show!

As for the show, I was soooooo excited with my placing. I really, really focused a LOT on improving my 2-minute routine for this show, so to place first in that round was really cool.
I had a little mini-break at the beginning of this week and now I'm right back on track for the Olympia. I still have a lot of work to do, but I'm up for the challenge, and I'm determined to bring my best physique AND routines yet to the Olympia. I can't wait to get on that Olympia stage!!

Thanks again everyone, and good luck to everyone competing at the upcoming shows!! Stay strong!

Hi everyone!

I just want to say thank you to everyone for all of your kind words and support. You have no idea how much it means to us athletes to know that we have fan support and appreciation behind us.

I am extremely happy with my performance at the Olympia. I knew going in that I would be going up against the best women in the world, so my goal was not in terms of placing, but in bringing my best physique possible and giving my best routine performance. I can honestly say I have never worked harder for anything, and I really believe that I achieved the above mentioned goals. To put things in perspective, I competed for the first time less than 2 years ago, and placed 7th in a "local level" NPC show. Two years later I am competing on the biggest stage in the world, against some amazing seasoned competitors, and I think I held my own.

It also has been really awesome to read all of the positive feedback about my routine performance. I put all of my difficulty back into my routine, and it was BY FAR my best routine performance of the year, so its great to know that the fans enjoyed it.

This season has been a truly amazing experience, and I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to compete at the Olympia. I truly have developed a passion for this sport, and I would like to continue to improve for each show that I do. I'm not sure what my plans are yet for 2009, but one thing is for sure, I plan on making some improvements and bringing an even better package to the stage.

Thank you everyone again!!!

TigerEyes
10-01-2008, 08:19 PM
Oh, and a few more things...

HUGE congrats to Jen Hendershot on her well-deserved win and also to Tracey Greenwood on her 2nd place finish. Both ladies looked and performed AMAZING! In fact, congratulations to all of the competitors! I think everyone looked amazing and it was such an honor to compete with the best women in this sport.

Thank you and GET WELL SOON to Julie Lohre!! Girl, I've had my share of gymnastics injuries and I do know how you are feeling. There's not much you can say to someone in a situation like this, but I know you are an incredibly strong woman and you will come back from this better than ever. And, BTW, you looked amazing at the Olympia!

Joe! I had a great time shooting with you, and I cant wait to see some samples!!!

And most importantly, I want to thank my boyfriend Jeff for being my rock this year. He travelled with me to all of my shows, including the Olympia, and he was definitely my biggest supporter and fan. As of Olympia weekend, he was 6 weeks out from the NJ State Champ's, and although it probably would have been easier for him to stay home for the Olympia, he knew I needed him there.....so there he was. ANd he managed to get in all of his training/cardio and stay 100% on his diet the whole weekend. I'm so glad he was able to make it out, and i know I could never do what i do without him. I love you Jeff!! Now its your turn!!

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to post a HUGE congrats to my boyfriend Jeff (gymrat)...
He competed yesterday at the NJ Gold's Classic and placed 2nd as a middle weight. This is only his second show ever (first one was 3 years ago), and he wasn't even peaking for this show (in fact, he just decided to compete in this one this week!!).
He will also be competing next weekend at the NJ State Championships, and I expect him to look even better!!
As a proud girlfriend, I just had to post it :awesome:

I love you and I'm so proud of you!! One more week to go!! :kiss:

I just wanted to say how proud i am of him. He worked his ass off for these shows (he was dieting and doing double cardios at the Olympia in Vegas!!) and he looked FANTASTIC!
Now we both get to relax TOGETHER for at least a few weeks before things pick back up again ;)

Yeah I figured that. I actually placed you 3rd (i think there was only a 1 or 2 point difference between you and the 3rd place guy) b/c you really tightened up.

My plans for 2009 are to eat and grow so I can be a legitimate heavyweight. I prob wouldn't have even placed top 5 at your show, dudes are BEASTS. I'll hit a spring show in 2010. Shelly is doing North Americans and Team U next year so I'll help her get ready for them to keep busy.

Congrats tho bro, you have a classic shape and great lines to build on.

Nick,
I really appreciate your honesty!!! And thanks for the comments. I am too looking forward to growing in off season so I can be a heavy middle weight for 2009. I was back stage and every time a guy walked bye me I was just amazed there they were pure animals who competed on Saturday. Guys were just massive. Best of Luck to you and your off season and to Shelly when she does the North Americans and Team U!!!!

I hope I did not offend you, I just didn't recongnize you since I've only seen pictures of you on stage all 'done up' with hair and make up! You look great and you are an inspiration for us future fitness stars!!! Keep in touch ;)

Nick and Shelly-- Nice to see you guys too!!

And FitFighter, great to meet you! And no, no, of course you didn't offend me. No one recognizes me in off-season b/c of my chubby cheeks (amongst other things, LOL) and I think also because I am sooooo pale in the winter time ;) And LOL from when you said "You don't stay ripped all year round?!" That gave me a good laugh. I am defintiely one to enjoy my food in the off-season :eat: ;)
But the fun is over, its time to clean up the diet and kick the workouts up a notch or two. The spring shows will be here before we know it!

And BTW-- CONGRATUALTIONS!!! Whats next for you in 09?
