Some Info about CORAL:

 

Where and when were you born? Melbourne, Victoria

 

What is your profession? Just retired from exotic dancing and now applying for a security license so I can work in security type positions. Iíll keep the stage presentations strictly for the bodybuilding stage now.

 

Were you involved in sports or fitness prior to bodybuilding and how did you get started with weight training? As a youngster up until my mid teens I did a lot of track and field and gymnastics, this was cut short due to knee injuries. I didnít do any sports for a long time but worked for 15 years in the racehorse industry riding and caring for equine athletes instead. In 1995, at the age of 31, I came out of the horse racing industry and was seriously underweight with no shape to me what so ever. I needed a new focus in life. I originally started gym just to gain a little weight, but quickly got addicted to it and bodybuilding.

 

Was it a goal for you to compete in bodybuilding competitions right from the beginning or was it something that grew in your mind as time went on and you saw the progress in your body? Not straight off, I was more concerned with just trying to get some meat on my bones. By the second year someone said ďWhy donít you give competing a go, youíre showing some real good symmetryĒ My competitive streak was starting to remerge again. More people were suggesting the same thing. In 1997 I entered my first competition, it was only a 3rd place but I had a ball. After this I was definately hooked and since then I have the stage every year till 2002 with good success.

2003: saw me having a lay off, at the time I hated it, but now I look back and it was the best thing I could have done for my body for recovery.
2004: I came back and won both the Qld State and Australian National titles. Try and stop me now.
2005/06: Just when you think you have it all nutted out your body changes how it reacts or other outside influences effect your wellbeing, tests your patience and in turn effects your results. But this only serves to make me look at alternate avenues, just as the body changes and grows, so too must your approach to your training, diet and comp preps. It proves that you never know it all nor stop learning. The body really is an amazing thing. 
I've learnt so much in the 11 plus years I have been bodybuilding and competiting. 2006 is the first year I was shown how to pose more effectively, up untill now I have had no formal training in posing. Many thanks to Figuregirl & Making Shapes. In the past I had just watched, taken note and did my best to get it right. There's so much more I want to learn, to see just how far I can push myself. With each year that goes by, with each new PB I reach, I find another surge that makes me push even harder and I raise the bar another knotch. I love this stuff, the hunger to keep going is still strong.

Which contest has been your biggest success; which has had the most meaning to you?
To date, winning both the 2004 NPFC_IFBB Queensland State Womens Open and the NPFC_IFBB Australian National Womens O/52kg. I went into both competitions with concerns after seeing another competitor, who in my eyes was bigger and better developed, my confidence in myself was being doubted, all I saw was her size. I wasnít seeing in myself what others were seeing. It wasnít until I compared past photographs of myself that I could see the changes and improvements I had made. When I was announced the winner in both competitions I was gob-smacked to say the least. Iím sure there will be more memorable and big successes for me in the future.

 

Please tell me something about your training routine (ie: how many days per week / training split /cardio, etc.) Currently training weights 5 days a week. Having just competed in and won the IFBB Australasian in Sydney and the IFBB Gold Coast for 2006, Iím was also looking at competing next month in the NABBA Southern Hemisphereís but a shoulder injury is needing my attention right now so I can compete later this year.

 

What is your favourite exercise in the gym and which one you donít like so much? Iíd have to say triceps is a favorite, back is also a new favourite of late though and Iíve developed a love for chin-ups suddenly as it has increased my strength in other back excercises. Iím not a big fan of hammies, especially legcurls, but this is more to do with torn hamstrings that are taking a long time to heal as with dead lifts. Iím working on it and trying different approaches and making progress.

 

Which body part is your best in your opinion?
Hmm, we see ourselves differently than others do, some say I have a great back, others comment on my legs, shoulders/traps or arms. I would like to think that no one body-part stands out any more than another as I strongly believe in symmetry and aim for this

 

What do you enjoy about training for competition....what do you enjoy about the 'off season'? The thing I enjoy most about a comp prep is that I have an immediate goal to focus on and a dead line to meet. I ensures that I donít slack off in any aspect of my training. From the time I get up of a morning till I finally crash for the night my day is planned and full. As for the off season, well I can relax a little more and not feel guilty if I decide to have an off day or that special treat. I can also spend a little more time with my friends.

 

Please describe a typical day in the life of Coral Moody.
Well this depends on whether Iím preparing for a comp or just training off season. During a comp prep I train weights 5 days a week and the day starts at 10am with a 30-45 min cardio session with my dog Bev_Lee, no need for an alarm clock with her around, sheís waking me up all excited about going out for some fun. Then we come home for breakfast and I prepare some meals then run some errands. Then itís time for a snack before I go to the gym and hit the weights. Then another meal straight after. I do the usual house chores that have to be done, eat some more, then do another cardio session. 
By 6pm I have to start getting ready for work {I usually work 4 nights a week}, prepare meals to take with me, eating as I go, then Iím off to work starting at 9pm. I finish work any where between 3 and 5am, then come home, check my email then go to bed. My meals are every 1 and a half to 2 hours. 
During the off season the cardio is dropped back to 1 session every other day and weight sessions are 4 to 5 days a week. The meals are higher in calories with the added carbs and eaten every 2 to 2 and a half hours. My work situation will be changing over the next few weeks as Iíve just retired from the hectic club scene and soon to be starting a new venture once Iíve completed my security coarse and got my security license.

 

Please tell me about what you do when you donít work out ( hobbies, what do you do to relax?, etc.) When I get the chance I like to spend some either at the beach or off somewhere where thereís less people and more quiet like a rain forest by a creek or go see a movie, even just relax at home. Itís even better when I get to share this time with my close friends and catch up, have a few laughs and just be me.

 

What do you enjoy most about the bodybuilding/fitness lifestyle?
I think what I enjoy the most about this industry, is what I have learnt. Iíve learnt that I can achieve more than I thought I was capable of. Iíve also learnt that what I have done for myself has inspired others to take the next step to realising their goals also. Without wanting to sound like Iím blowing my own trumpet, I enjoy the fact that bodybuilding has me looking younger than my years. A cleaner diet, the weight training and lifestyle has me feeling as I did ten years ago if not better.

 

What are your competition goals or personal future goals?
Iím aiming for another Australian title. I would love to get to International level and represent Australia in physique competitions with distinction. I believe with the right support I can do this and do it well. On a more personal level, Iím looking into starting my own business with stage presentation, contest tanning being the main concept, also costume and grooming with my connections within the bodybuilding community.

 

My website will be receiving a big upgrade later this year {provided all goes as planned} incorporating another web community, ĄSharp Curvesď, which I started nearly 5 years ago, as a forum.
