Describe your path to the pro ranks.
I won both of my pro cards relatively quickly, which was exciting but also presents other struggles.
I always placed well in Bikini Pro shows, and then I won my figure pro card during one of my pro bikini shows when I crossed over to open figure. My body is naturally just more muscular and I love lifting heavy. After talking with my trainer we decided figure was the way to go for me. I’ve had a tough transition over to figure though. I did my first pro figure show just 7 months after I transitioned from Pro Bikini. I didn’t come in lean enough, and I should have waited a bit longer.
I’m excited to make improvements and head back into another pro figure show later this year. Winning pro cards quickly doesn’t always give you the necessary time to develop your physique to compete at the next level. It’s always smart to take some extra time.
Which WNBF pro shows have you competed in?

What does being a WNBF pro mean to you?
Being a WNBF Pro means that I can compete against some of the best natural bodybuilders in the natural world. I’m lucky to have that opportunity.
Are you involved in any other parts of the sport?
I do have some involvement in the sport. I currently write monthly articles. I also have started my own Blog Talk Radio show which is called Fit Talk with Melinda Corssino.
Which WNBF amateur shows are you likely to attend?
I am most likely to compete in WNBF Amateur Worlds since it is the closet to where I live.
Will you be competing in the 2015 Worlds in Atlantic City?
I will be competing in Pro Figure for 2015 WNBF Worlds.
What are your competitive goals?
My competitive goals go beyond bodybuilding. I compete in CrossFit competitions, Spartan Races, Trail Races, and more. I would love to continue to grown and improve in all aspects of my training as well as start placing better at my Pro Figure shows given this is a new category for me!
