Struggling with an abusive family dynamic, unhealthy eating habits, and drug use, Tiffany Nance was on the path to self-destruction. It’s safe to say the birth of her son saved her life. Seventy-two pounds of pregnancy weight became her next challenge to face. Finally she started researching training, diets, and supplementation. In 2005 she finished her personal training certification, and in 2009, Nance entered her first contest. The fourth-place win took her by surprise. Her new goals include refining and softening her muscle to pull in bigger scores from judges and then earn her pro card. Meanwhile, training others is a joy she relishes every day.
