Chie Terui has been very busy in the fitness industry. Since 1997, she has been active as a personal trainer, swimming & aerobics instructor. Her talents have given her the opportunity to train in Japan as well as several locations in the United States. She has trained clients in all shapes & sizes, ranging from teaching toddlers to swim, to helping seniors improve their fitness level. Chie has also studied Kendo, the art of Japanese samurai swordsmanship, and is an aspiring model and actress.
Chie began her commitment to excellence by first transforming herself from a size 11 to a size 3. She was battling high cholesterol, and began exercising to maintain her health. However, as she began to lose weight, she became excited with the changes to her body, and her goals became loftier. She entered the fitness profession first as an aerobics instructor, and was hooked.
This eventually led to her current status as a figure competitor. A rising star in this area, Chie placed 5th in the short class at the 2003 Illinois State Figure Championship and on June 12, 2004 placed 2nd at the 2004 Central U.S.A. Figure Competition in Bloomington, IL. However, don’t let her success intimidate you. Although she plans to turn pro next year, Chie says she has no plans to stop training. She simply loves it too much.
