Isabelle's first contest was at the June 2000 Orlando Classic, where she competed at 119lbs and took 1st in the middleweights and tied for the overall title. Since then she has continued to improve and gain size, competing in 2003 and winning the HW and overall titles at the Excalibur in Los Angeles.
"I played a lot of sports in high school. My favorite was soccer. I played Soccer for nine years competitive. I loved the sport. I played center defense. Awesome position. I loved getting dirty and slide tackling. But I had to stop for a while because I tore a ligament in my knee. I was going to have surgery. To be honest I chickened out. The sports doctor was going to put screws in my knee or someone else's ligament. Just talking about it gives me the chills. The other sports I played was softball, wrestling, volleyball, and track.
I do admit I was a fatty little
thing. I had a little belly and huge thighs. I was nicknamed “thunder
thighs”. Anyway, once in a while I lifted weights but I didn’t know nothing
about how to lift a weight or exercise with weight training. My whole life did a
360 when I was 20 yrs old. I really wasn’t a fan of muscles and bodybuilding.
I thought it was silly. I used to watch a lot of Saturday night live, where they
had this skit of dana Carvey and another guy making fun of bodybuilding. The
skit was 2 guys named “hans and franz”. I laughed my but off. Anyway, I was
really in the middle of a bad realationship. This guy constantly put me down,
saying that I would never be anything, and that I would be a loser. Well this
guy was the real loser. He had a bad insecurity problem. I dropped him real
fast. At that point I wanted to do something that I never done before. I ran
into an old friend that was a bodybuilder. I don’t know what happened. I just
decided “what the hell, you live only once”. I gave her a call and we hooked
up. This was the biggest and best change of my life and eventually a meaning to
what I was meant to be."
