Emily Dickson

I grew up in the small town of Almonte, ON with a family who always pushed me to be the best I could be, and a brother who liked to push my buttons. Thanks to them, I strived to achieve my big dreams. They made sure to show up to every soccer game, horse show, ballet recital, car show... you name it.. growing up. Lucky for me, I have the biggest support team cheering me on throughout my journey in life. 

My brother encouraged me to join the gym at the age of 16, and I've never looked back since. I fell in love with the sport of bodybuilding while watching the 2015 Toronto Pro show. I decided immediately to sign up for the regional Ottawa show - and placed first in my Bikini category! I've completed two other competitions since, placing well each time. I dedicate much of my time to this sport, and will continue to for years and years to come... it truly is a lifestyle! 

Of course with my passion for fitness and bodybuilding, I have long since realized the benefits that supplementation plays in my training. I have always relied on supplements to help push me through my strenuous workouts, and aid in muscle growth/recovery after my training sessions are complete. 

I am currently working for the Government of Canada and studying at Carleton University in International Marketing and Trade w/ a minor in Spanish. I will soon be moving to the beautiful city of Guadalajara, Mexico to continue with my university degree and solidify my Spanish language skills until June 2019. While abroad in Mexico, I will be in preparation for the Monterrey Championships where I will be competing for my IFBB Pro card... fingers crossed!
