Nikki Fuller

Nikki Fuller (born 23 January 1968) is an American professional female bodybuilder and actress. At her largest, Fuller weighed 200 lb (91 kg) and her biceps measured 18 in (457 mm). Some of her best lifts include 275 lb (125 kg) for 10 reps on bench press, 135 lb (61 kg) for multiple reps on dumbbell curls, and 1,200 lb (544 kg) for multiple reps on leg press.

Fuller was born in 1968 in Dayton, Ohio and moved with her family to Gresham, Oregon when she was 10. She was raised in the Pacific Northwest, and became interested in sports while attending Gresham High School. Fuller competed in Track and Field and, by the time she graduated in 1986, she was also the Water Polo State Champion.

Playing sports, Fuller realized that she was exceptionally strong and after high school decided to focus on bodybuilding. Working out at a local gym, Fuller began training and quickly transformed herself, adding 20 lb (9 kg) to her 123 lb (56 kg) frame.

Bodybuilding career
The first contest she entered was the 1988 Novice Oregon and won first place. After her Novice Oregon win, Fuller set her sights on bigger contests and took third place in the 1988 Emerald Cup, a contest she would come back to win the following year. Fuller turned pro after winning the heavyweight and overall titles at the 1990 National Physique Committee Nationals.

In 1988 and 1989, Fuller won 1st place in the Henry Weinhard's Handcar Races in Sacramento, San Francisco, and Portland, Oregon, as well as Labatt's in British Columbia. She was subsequently sponsored by Henry Weinhard's. Her professional career included a first place finish at the 1992 Jan Tana Classic and top ten finishes at the Ms. Olympia and Ms. International contests.

In 1993, Fuller was featured on the cover of The Women, a photography book of top female bodybuilders compiled by Bill Dobbins.
