Hello! My name is Monica Riscoll. I´m mostly a happy person who likes very much to be around my friends, even if I also have to stay by my self sometimes, just to relax, or take a nice walk or read something. My profession is teaching in Physical Education, daytime. In the evenings I work as a Personal Trainer, which I also write about in a Swedish Healthmagazine called Iform (InShape in English).Once a week, I´m also instructing in Spinning(indoorbiking), which I like very much. Some years ago I was competing a lot in Bodybuilding, for 9 years to be exact. I was then competing on an International level, and it was really a big part of my life. I quit 1994, and since theen I´ve only been training for fun and to feel good. Last year, Febr 2002, I decided to compete once again, so I put in an extra gear, went on a diet in the Summer, and so it went on. It was really a good! time, and ended with a 1st place at the Swedish Championships in middleweight, and also in Pair, together with one of the best male bodybuilder in Sweden, Fredrik Age. I also won ”Best Female Poser”, and a Price of Honor – ”Kerstins Minne” So it was really a great day! One of my best memories in my whole BB-carrier actually!
