Fast Facts You Need To Know


Gafner stands out from other female professional bodybuilders for been a great speaker about the bodybuilding lifestyle and for always promoting the benefits of bodybuilding outside of competing. “Bodybuilding has allowed me mold my body into the shape I want, that’s why I do it, and will continue to train regardless of whether I compete or not. Bodybuilding makes me feel good about myself, and that’s what’s important” (Brainum, 226). Gafner’s only IFBB Pro, and most notable victory was the IFBB 1991 Jan Tana Classic.


Sue Gafner competed as an amateur in the light-weight competitive division for several years in the late 80s until she moved the middle weight class at the national class level of competitive bodybuilding in the early 90s. Gafner earned her pro card in 1990 by winning the middle weight class at the NPC Nationals. She competed as a professional from 1991 through 1993. She was the first winner of the Jan Tana Classic in 1991. As of 2008 she resides in the Tampa / St. Petersburg area of Florida where she lives with her husband while working as an independent management consultant specializing in financial compliance.


She finally decided to compete after three months of training when people at her him began suggesting that she should try competition. Gafner decided to do so and on April 1987 she entered her first contest. She won her class at the 1987 Palm Springs Muscle Classic Novice contest, and followed her debut with a victory at the 1987 Tournament of Champions where she won both her class and overall. She continued training, but ran into trouble due to her lack of knowledge about dieting and exercise and often overtrained (Brainum, 223). This soon changed when Gafner joined with a more experienced bodybuilder named Lisa Hitchens. Hitchens taught Gafner about how to train properly and this was very helpful for Gafner and it showed in her competition. Gafner placed 1st in the light weight division at the 1988 USA Championships and 2nd on the 1989 NPC Nationals. She later decided to enter the middle weight class and placed 1st at the NPC Nationals, earning her Pro card in only a three-year period. She continued to compete meanwhile she managed her own wall-papering business and worked as a wall-paper hanger.


After becoming a pro, Gafner had a brief career in the pro circuit. She arrived at a time where Women’s Bodybuilding was going through a transition where bigger was better. And like many women bodybuilders of the 1980s she refused to follow with the trend of gaining large levels of muscle mass in order to compete and be successful in the sport were once small frames were considered better. And while she was very successful at the NPC level where she placed no lower than 2nd, she soon found herself lost at the IFBB were heavier athletes were winning the shows. She placed 10th at her first Ms. Olympia competition and 12th the second time and after reaching the top-five at her second 1993 Ms. International, she retired from the sport entirely. This came as a result of her lack of desire to use large amounts of steroids such as growth hormones in order to compete and be successful at a pro level. Today it is believed that like many other professional bodybuilders, Gafner has started her own personal training business and is living peacefully in California.
