Lisa Marie Varon Interview
Article care of www.star-interviews.com
You've been asked to interview for donlemmon.com with
some other cool people. Are you excited? Is this more
exciting than being on television or in a magazine?
Lisa Marie Varon says: I ENJOY WATCHING MYSELF ON TV,
BUT THIS IS CERTAINLY A CLOSE SECOND.
DON: What can you tell me about your body and the
shape it's in that you think most people do not realize.
Lisa Marie Varon says: I KNOW MANY GIRLS WHO CAN MAINTAIN
THEIR PHYSIQUE WITH MINIMAL TRAINING, BUT I NEED TO
TRAIN HARD AND EAT CLEAN TO MAINTAIN MY CONDITION. THERE
IS NO REAL "OFF" SEASON FOR ME.
DON: Per modeling or fitness or bodybuilding. Tell
me the best, and the worst experience you have ever
had in this field.? Maybe the experience was with another
person or happened to a friend.
Lisa Marie Varon says: WINNING MY PRO CARD IN 1999 WOULD
BE A PARTICULAR HIGHLIGHT, BUT HOW TRAINING MAKES ME
FEEL ABOUT MYSELF IS RIGHT UP THERE. AS FOR BAD EXPERIENCES,
THERE WERE A COUPLE ORGANIZATIONS (WHO I DON'T WANT
TO NAME) WHO AREN'T REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE ATHLETES.
MANY OF THOSE CONTESTS HAVE "CELEBRITY" JUDGES, WHO
DON'T KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR, AND THEN JUDGING CRITERIA
DON: Tell me about the different fad diets you have
tried. Why did they fail?
Lisa Marie Varon says: WHEN I WAS 16, I HEARD THAT FASTING
WAS HEALTHY. I DIDN'T EAT FOR ABOUT A DAY AND A HALF,
AND I PASSED OUT. I HAVE SINCE MADE IT A POINT TO UNDERSTAND
NUTRITION, BECAUSE IT IS SOOOO IMPORTANT.
DON: What different exercise routines have you tried?
Split routines, full body workouts, and what really
showed the best results? What was your last session
Lisa Marie Varon says: I HAVE TRIED JUST ABOUT EVERY
SPLIT OUT THERE, BUT THESE DAYS, I'M TRYING TO GET MORE
ENTERTAINMENT WORK, AND MY WORKOUT IS MORE CARDIO INTENSIVE,
COMPLIMENTED WITH LIGHT TRAINING.
DON: What was the last movie you saw, video rented,
cd bought, concert saw, fancy meal ate?
Lisa Marie Varon says: I SAW MERCURY RISING ON A RECENT
PLANE TRIP. I RENTED THE GREEN MILE LAST WEEKEND. MY
LAST CD WAS DESTINY'S CHILD (I LOVE HIP-HOP). MY FRIEND
PLAYS IN A BAND, AND WE SAW HIM AT THE WHISKEY (A WELL
KNOW LIVE BAND BAR ON THE SUNSET STRIP IN L.A.)
DON: I know the Whiskey quite well. Was our home
away from home for a while there. What supplement lines
do you use or cycle and when? What one should never
be neglected (or more than one)?
Lisa Marie Varon says: I TAKE THE PARRILLO LINE. I CAN'T
EMPHASIZE ENOUGH THE IMPORTANCE OF AMINOS.
DON: That would be amino acids folks. Proteins. Parrillo
gets his stuff from Beverly International and relabels
it. So if his prices are steep, contact Beverly International.
What got you started in weight training? When did you
first pay attention to diet?
Lisa Marie Varon says: I HAD A BOYFRIEND WHO OWNED A
GYM. I USED TO ONLY DO AEROBICS, AND HE RECOMMENDED
A MORE COMPREHENSIVE ROUTINE. I MADE RAPID PROGRESS,
AND I COMPETED ABOUT SIX MONTHS LATER. DIETING FOR THE
CONTEST, I SAW THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD NUTRITION.
DON: What is your crowning achievement? Who cheered
you along all the while and who said you couldn't that
you proved wrong?
Lisa Marie Varon says: MY IFBB PRO CARD WAS ABSOLUTELY
THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY FITNESS CAREER. I HAVE BEEN LUCKY
IN THAT I AM SURROUNDED BY MANY SUPPORTIVE, POSITIVE
DON: What is your full name, age, location, actual
job title and how long have you been doing it? What
was your first and last job working for someone else?
Lisa Marie Varon says: LISA MARIE VARON, I LIVE IN L.A.,
AND I AM CURRENTLY WORKING WITH THE WWF. MY FIRST JOB
WAS MAKING PIZZAS WHEN I WAS SIXTEEN.
DON: What do you want to plug and what makes it unique?
Lisa Marie Varon says: MY WEBSITE (LISAMARIEVARON.COM).
IT IS MORE THAN JUST PHOTOS FOR SALE, THERE IS A
LOT OF USEFUL INFO.
DON: Describe to me your current eating plan and
what you would change if you saw an inch creep up on
Lisa Marie Varon says: I EAT PRETTY HIGH PROTEIN AND
MODERATE FAT, AND WHEN I NEED TO GET LEAN, I CARB DEPLETE.
DON: What is your favorite 'good for you' meal and
favorite cheat food?
Lisa Marie Varon says: I LOOOOOOOVE SASHIMI. I COULD
EAT IT SEVEN NIGHTS A WEEK. MY FAVORITE CHEAT FOOD,
WITHOUT A DOUBT, IS CHOCOLATE.
DON: Is there anything you think we haven't touched
upon here yet you'd like to?
Lisa Marie Varon says: NO. THIS IS VERY COMPREHENSIVE
(WHICH IS WHY IT TOOK SO LONG FOR ME TO GET BACK TO
YOU WITH THE ANSWERS!!!)
DON: What is your educational background? College.
Certifications. What subjects were the most important
in getting your mind set where it is today?
Lisa Marie Varon says: I WAS PRE-MED AT UCLA. I HAVE
NUMEROUS FITNESS CERTIFICATIONS, AND MEDICAL CERTIFICATIONS
RELATIVE TO A PRIOR JOB I HAD PROCURING HUMAN TISSUE
FOR TRANSPLANTAION. I THINK PEOPLE SKILLS DEVELOPED
OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL HAVE PLAYED A LARGER ROLE IN MY SUCCESS.
DON: I am curious what is your most frequently asked
question. I am also curious if you prefer a certain
line of exercise equipment or not.
Lisa Marie Varon says: WITH ALL THE WORK THAT I PUT
INTO MY PHYSIQUE, THE MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTION IS
HOW I KEEP MY HAIR SO HEALTHY. I AM "OLD SCHOOL" WHEN
IT COMES TO TRAINING. I LOVE THE FREE WEIGHTS.
DON: Your top five favorite websites are:
Lisa Marie Varon says: 1- WWF.COM 2-TORRIEWILSON.COM
3-UPW.COM 4- YAHOO.COM
5-AND OF COURSE, DONLEMMON.COM
DON: What makes you cringe? What makes you smile
so wide your jaw aches?
Lisa Marie Varon says: WATCHING PEOPLE TRAIN INCORRECTLY
MAKES ME CRINGE, AND MY NIECES AND NEPHEWS MAKE ME SMILE.
DON: Paint the final picture of your goals in life.
Of all the highs and lows, what is your desired final
Lisa Marie Varon says: I DON'T HAVE SPECIFIC GOALS,
BUT I LIKE TO TRY NEW THINGS. I ALSO LIKE TO FEEL THAT
I'M MAKING A POSTIVE IMPACT ON MY ENVIRONMENT. IF I
CONTINUE TO ACCOMPLISH BOTH THINGS, I WILL CONSIDER
MY JOURNEY A SUCCESS.
DON: What needs changed in bodybuilding or fitness
mainstream or industry related?
Lisa Marie Varon says: BODYBUILDING AND FITNESS HAVE
BEEN AROUND LONG BEFORE I COMPETED, AND WILL BE AROUND
LONG AFTER I STOP COMPETING. I HAVE HEARD A LOT OF OPINIONS
ON HOW IT SHOULD BE. MY PHILOSOPHY IS THAT A COMPETITOR
SHOULD UNDERSTAND WHAT'S INVOLVED IN THE INDUSTRY, AND
EITHER ACCEPT IT, OR FIND AN INDUSTRY THAT BETTER UTILIZES
