Guest Poser: IFBB Pro Lise Erin Thexton-Burke
Growing up Lise was quite athletic and played numerous sports throughout elementary and high school, like volleyball, rugby, soccer, baseball and continued on to play competitive rep soccer.
Incorporating weight training in high school Lise found a love of being in the gym and learning how to transform and shape the body. After a co-worker planted the idea of competing into Lise’s head in 2005, she decided to do her first show. Starting in the fitness model category, she quickly jumped to the figure category where she excelled in different organizations under the guidance of Jason Green of Team Green in 2008. She then made the switch to women’s physique in 2012 and found the category that was made for her.
After having a fantastic year in 2012 and winning 1st and overall at the O’Brien Championships and 1st in her category at provincials, she placed 4th at her first run at Canadian Nationals. After a year of hard work she came back to Canadian Nationals in 2013, where she earned her coveted IFBB Pro Card.
She has competed in 4 pro shows, placing anywhere from 10th to 2nd place. She is currently working with Jason Green of Team Green and Team Sims to bring her best package to date to the Europa in Orlando Florida at the end of April, on her quest to the Olympia stage.
Outside of competing, Lise is a wife and mom with a corporate career where she works full time in Toronto at a law firm. She leads a very busy lifestyle with 2 side businesses as well, with her husband D.

What paperwork / documents do I require for registration?The following is required -Your OPA Membership card. If you do not have a current card, you will be required to purchase one before you can proceed with weigh-in/registration. You will also require your entry form. Additionally, if you are competing as a Junior, Masters or Grand Masters, proof of age is required, which can take the form of a Birth Certificate, Drivers License, or other Government issued document.
If I enter more than one class, is one entry form sufficient?No. A separate entry form is required for each class entered.
Do I require my posing suit for weigh-in and registration?Yes. Regardless of what category you are entering, these suits must be worn at weigh-in/registration. This allows the officials to determine if the suit is proper and provides the athlete with time to have the proper suit on competition day. This rule is strictly enforced and illegal suits will NOT be permitted.
I purchased my membership but my card has not arrived to bring to registration. What do I do?If you purchased your membership “on line” bring a hard copy of your PayPal receipt or be able to produce an electronic copy on your Cell phone or Blackberry.
