Our April Female Athlete of The Month is current Figure British champion Romana Skotzen
Little bit about yourself:
Hmmm so I have been a Paramedic for the last 17 years.
I lived and worked in London for 14 of those years before moving back down to the West Country. I have a 4 legged shadow called Ruby who is the best.
How did you get into fitness scene:
I have always done something, Swimming, Athletics and Hockey as a kid and ran 100 meters in school.
Dad took me to the gym as soon as he could at age 14.
Had a brief break from fitness for 3 years at uni.
Then spent my late 20’s and early 30’s being mediocre at CrossFit till I was introduced to bodybuilding at 33.
How do you managed to stay in shape during lockdown?
During the first lockdown I had access to a very basic gym through work luckily.
This most recent lockdown I had access to U7 after seeking permission from Devon Police.
Their support has been amazing through this lockdown.

Short term goal is to place at a pro show. Ultimately I am aiming for the Olympia!!!
