Aimee Pourroy – "Age is just a number"
Women Fitness|July 2021
Exceptionally Talented Fitness Enthusiast

Aimee Pourroy is an accountant, trainer, and ambitious athlete aiming for a pro card. She grew up in the small town of Healdsburg, Sonoma County. She worked fulltime and attended classes at night, graduating from Sonoma State University with a B.S in Business, concentration in Accounting and a minor in Native American Studies.

She played sports and cheerleading her whole life and later left to pursue the dream of independence and lived in Huntington Beach while working at one of the largest accounting firms in the world.

Most of her life she has been in fitness from group sports to triathlons and marathons, until landing on the passion of bodybuilding and being memorized by the science of the body.

After becoming a mom, she had the ability to take on the dream of obligating her personal goals to the world of fitness. After years of endurance sports and discovering a weight room she participated in her first show in 2013.

Between 2014-2020 she competed in 11 shows placing in both top-five and top three but in 2020 she won 1st place in qualifying for the nationals, where she was placed fourth.

In between shows she has done multiple photoshoots, competed in Starks ‘Stark-naked fitness contest’ and raised over 10K for California Highway Patrol Widows and Orphans Foundation. She documents her journey of being a fit mom on her IG ‘Two Girls and a Gym’ with her best friend showing that you can be a good example to your kids and other moms who think it’s impossible.

She is a mom to a beautiful daughter who is a competitive ice skater, volleyball player and loves to be active which has her starting day at 4 a.m. to hit the ice rink, school, and sports while she works remotely as an accountant, help people with their physical training, prep for nationals, get her training in and keep up her home, ending her day at 10 p.m. just to start it all over again, which she wouldn’t change for anything!

She has an amazing coach @shaneHeugly whom has taught her that anything is possible if you work hard and stay focused (controlling what your body does is nothing like achieving education or financial goals). She has been preparing for this and more than ready to achieve the fitness goal she has been striving for, on which she REFUSES to give up on. She hopes to not only show her daughter it’s possible to do anything you work hard for, but also moms everywhere that it is ok to act on your personal goals while being a parent and most importantly over the age of 45!

You grew up in the small town of Healdsburg, Sonoma County. You worked full-time and attended classes at night, graduating from Sonoma State University with a B.S in Business. You did overcome all the hardships and adversity and went on to become one of the successful bodybuilding stars to stand 1st in the qualifying round and 4th at the Nationals in 2020. This later propelled your career to the height where you have been at the top of the world of fitness and bodybuilding competitors. Tell us more about your professional journey of exceptionally hard work, tenacity, and endurance?

I've never been one to give up, I was raised that hard work pays off because no one is going to do it for you. I've had to work hard for everything I've ever wanted in life, education, job, etc. I set goals, within time I have always achieved them. Bodybuilding is another story; it’s been a goal I have been striving for, for years. So far I've learned more about myself, my strengths, and my weakness and just how mentally strong I actually am.

After becoming a mom, you had the ability to take on the dream of obligating your personal goals to the world of fitness. You participated in the first fitness show in 2013. Between 2014-2020 you competed in 11 shows placing in either the top 5 or top 3 and but in 2020 you won 1st place and qualified for nationals, where you were placed 4th. Tell us about this spectacular achievement of yours?

The year of COVID, I had nothing else to do besides focus on my training (and entertain my daughter) and thankfully a new coach brought me to Utah where shows where happening. Winning my category was the best feeling, gave me confidence and hope for the future. He immediately told me we were going to nationals.
