About Heather Dees
Place of Birth: Salt Lake City, UT
Competition Weight: 132 lbs
Heather Dees received her pro card at the 2010 NPC Nationals in Atlanta, but she received her first taste, literally, of bodybuilding as a young girl.
During an extended family vacation Dees watched as her aunt ate dry oats from a baggy and drank what she called a "protein shake." She was told that this food was her aunt’s fuel to compete in fitness competitions.
It wasn’t until she was 23 though that Dees developed a craving what she had tasted years earlier, and began weight training. A year later and Dees was in her first competition taking home first in her class and the overall. She went on to place first in the 2012 IFBB Governors Cup receiving Olympia qualification.
