Carol Semple

First and foremost I want to say a special "Thank You" to Michael Alexander. This unique concept of Infinite Sports USA belongs to him! I am so blessed to share this opportunity with Michael and to pour my heart into something that I am so passionate about, being an athlete, promoting health and fitness, and fulfilling dreams. I have been a competitive athlete and promoted health and fitness most of my life, and now I am in a position to help others, like me, fulfill their athletic dreams.

I remember where I was and when I first read about competitive fitness competitions.

It was May 1990, and I was standing at the desk of the old Gold’s Gym in Denver, owned by Kent Border. I was reading an Ironman Magazine. There was a small black and white photo of Cameo Kneuer, Cory Everson’s sister, and an article of her winning the Ms. National Fitness competition with a brief description of what the competition included.

I read about the fitness routine round, the physique round, and the poise and projection round, and I thought to myself, "This is perfect for me!" I just knew that this was exactly what I was looking for. A competition where I could utilize my training and love for the sports of gymnastics and bodybuilding and where I could really promote my new found love for health and fitness.

Words of Thanks

I would like to thank our Lord and Savior for giving me the strength to train with dedication and perseverance.

My mother, Laveda, who is without question the strongest woman I have ever meet and has taught me how to live my life with dignity and grace.

Laura, my big sister, thank you for understanding that when I was deep in pre-contest training mode I was not always there physically. I love you and love your incredible insight, but most importantly I love your incredible humor!

Ken Marzetta, my first husband and training partner during my competitive years. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement.

Chris Hanenburg, who inspired me to get into bodybuilding and was one of my first training partners. She helped me prepare for my first bodybuilding competition. Chris you are an amazing women. I will never forget the crazy workouts and incredible motivation. Thank you so much for your friendship.

Craig Heber, your never-ending energy and enthusiasm always made me laugh and kept me pushing harder and harder. You taught me so much about how far I could push myself and still have more to give.

Wally Boyko, who was the first to create the concept of the Fitness Competition. Without his insight into this unique combination of strength and beauty I would not be where I am today.

Sean Mahany, one of my first trainers. I will never forget the insane leg workouts and the intensity in which we attacked those workouts. Thanks for all the craziness.

Flex Gym, Lakewood Colorado and Personal Trainer, Jeff Wagner, who helped get me through a plateau in my weight training.

Dardano’s School of Gymnastic’s, where I not only was a gymnastics coach but also did all of my training for the fitness routine. Thank you to the Dardano family,

Kevin McMurchie, my gymnastics coach. Thank you for working with me for all those years and never letting me settle for anything but the best.

Johnny Faulk who helped me come up with some of the best music in the business. Remember my Yo Carol Lady C routine?

Carolyn Walker was my seamstress and suit designer, before there were any full time suit designers like there are today. Thank you for your creativity.

Heidi Junius, my first choreographer. Thank you for teaching me so much about music, choreography, and performing at your best. I am the performer I am today because of you. You are an inspiration and your energy is unmatched.

Misty Tripoli, thank you for being such a great friend and supporter early in my career. You were always there to bounce new ideas off of and it was thanks to you that I found one of my favorite themes for a routine, Phantom of the Opera!

Yvonne Ouellette who I met at a photo shoot sometime in 1994 and transformed my look with her incredible gift of artistry in hair and makeup.

Jan Tana, whom I met at my first Arnold Classic, where I won the very first Ms. Fitness World in 1994. Jan, thank you for taking me under your wing and believing in me. It was later that year that I made an appearance at the Jan Tana Classic.

Todd Swinney, who helped me realize how to change my diet and change my physique. Thank you for helping me win the International Fitness and Olympia Fitness in 1997. All the Best!!!
