Local teen wins first amateur body building contest

By Joshua McKinney

Leanne Cisneros was nervous until she walked on stage.

She dry heaved several times and suffered some mild anxiety on the almost six-hour trip from Fredericksburg to the Dallas Convention Center for the Europa Games on June 19-20 to compete in a National Physique Committee body-building contest.

Cisneros could not stop shaking back stage before going on for the first time in an event.

But when it was all said and done, she beat four other girls to win her first-ever body building competition at the age of 17.

“Confidence is something they say you have to have,” Cisneros said. “They even say, ‘once you go on that stage, even if your knees are clanking, you have to put on a personality.’ That’s something that helps you win. Judges don’t like a girl that’s hiding in the back. The confidence comes from knowing you worked hard.”
