Things You Probably Don’t Know About Jane Awad
Often when someone is in the public eye, we think we know them quite well even if we really know very little about them. For example, if you see a picture of someone in a magazine, or if you see them in real-life such as onstage, it’s automatic to start guessing how old they are, what they might be like to talk to, or where they’re from, and so on and so forth. But, usually, these guesses are wrong.
For example, Jane Awad is one of Canada’s most respected and most beautiful professional figure competitors. In fact, many women I know who weight train aspire to look like hershe looks highly athletic, yet is still feminine and attractive. I thought I knew quite a bit about Jane simply by what I’d seen of her, but, as you’ll find out, I really didn’t know much at all, even though I’d seen her quite a few times.
I first met Jane Awad in the spring of 2004 at a figure competition, and have since run into her quite often at various events. The last time I saw her was when I sat down to talk to her for this article – in September, one week before the 2006 Figure Olympia competition, in which she was competing.
At that first meeting in 2004 I guessed Jane was about 25 years old, and when I saw her in September this year I thought her to be 27, tops. Obviously, I made that conclusion based on only how she looks, which isn’t a bad way to go. Imagine my surprise, then, when she told me she was 36 – something she’s not shy about stating. My jaw almost hit the floor.
I then asked her when she had started competing in figure, thinking that since she was now a professional in the IFBB ranks and doing very well, perhaps she’d been at it for five or ten years. After all, she shows tremendous confidence onstage, which is usually the result of many years of competing. The fact of the matter is, however, that the first competition I saw her at in 2004 happened to be her first competition, ever! After that contest, she competed as an amateur just twice more, and at the third competition, the 2004 IFBB North American Championships, she won the whole thing and turned pro. I had no idea. Furthermore, she won her first pro figure competition just one year later – the 2005 IFBB North American Pro Figure Championships.
As I said, I didn’t know as much as I thought I knew about Jane, and I suspect many other people who think they know her don’t really know much either if they’ve only seen her in magazines or competing onstage. Therefore, it was very interesting for me to sit down with her on that Saturday in September and learn more about her and write about it here on After all, many people think she’s American-born when, in fact, she was born and raised in Canada – Ontario to be exact; Jane currently lives in Windsor. That misconception, though, is because she did live in the New York City for about six years starting in 2000, before moving back to Canada in 2005.
Frankly, I didn’t want to get into her "life history," finding out where she was born, what schools she went to, and what sports she participated in – stuff like that you can find on her website. Instead, I wanted to learn something new and interesting: I wanted to hear about other things I didn’t already know about her.
Jane made it easy. I found her refreshingly candid, but also careful with what she says. Not careful in a bad way, mind you, but in a thoughtful way. She’ll tell you what you need to know, in great detail, but she chooses her words precisely so you know exactly what she means. I like that. In fact, I think it’s a strong attribute for a woman in her position since, as a pro figure competitor, she’s also a spokeswoman for the fitness industry. So, when I shared a story about one unnamed figure champion who made a speech for the television audience right after her win that was, let’s say, rather embarrassing in terms of its tone and simplistic content, Jane said, "If you think you’re going to win a competition and you know someone’s going to ask you a question afterwards on TV, shouldn’t you think about what you’re going to say beforehand? As I said, Jane’s candid, and she’ll tell you exactly how she feels.
But what you probably don’t yet know is how Jane got into figure competition in the first place. It was more or less by chance. According to Jane, "I actually stumbled upon figure at the 2004 Arnold Classic.
After Jane turned pro, she committed herself to figure competitions completely. Although she was very active in various sports when she was young and up to the time she went into her first competition, she knew that pro figure required dedication in order to go far, so she’s currently participating in no other sports and trains exclusively for figure.
With such a focus on figure, I wondered how Jane copes with the stress of professional figure competitions, a sport that assesses a woman completely on how she looks on a particular day. Jane says, "You cannot have an ego in this sport.
According to Jane, "I always recommend doing a show to people who are interested.
Jane is now the owner of a club in Windsor called Train with Jane. It’s there that Jane not only helps aspiring figure competitors, but also men and women of all ages who want to get into shape. Jane describes how she came to be a gym owner, "For years I have always wanted to open my own studio, but the timing was off.
I can honestly say that I have gained a lot of confidence in myself since opening up Train with Jane. I have always believed in myself, but now I believe that my knowledge, experience, and background in training and nutrition can help so many others, and hopefully I will inspire people to reach their own personal best by training them in my own studio."
Being an inspiration is something that Jane is obviously good at based on her personality, attitude and, of course, her own success story. However, I admit that at first I was a bit surprised at her answer when I asked her this: "How would you motivate someone to start working out if they’re not doing anything?
When talking with Jane about the "quick fix" that drugs can provide, as well as the health risks that come with them, I found out quite quickly where she stands on that issue.
200611_jane.jpg (39770 bytes) Jane's 5th-place finish at the 2006 Figure International competition has been her competitive highlight so far.
Jane’s a natural competitor, meaning she has not, and will not, use drugs. Furthermore, she feels strongly that other women shouldn’t either. According to Jane, "I am a firm believer that steroids do not have a place in figure.
Obviously, that’s good advice, and I’m very glad to see Jane and other women speak out about drug use and make a statement about it, particularly here on As a matter of fact, pro figure competitor Nina Luchka wrote candidly about the topic in our "Edge" section in September . It’s no coincidence, actually, that Jane and Nina are friends.
Says Jane, "Before ever stepping on stage with Nina Luchka, we became friends and kept in touch talking about our common goal, becoming an IFBB Pro.
Friendship, environment, and support are words that Jane uses regularly in her conversation, but, like I said, not haphazardly. Jane thinks about what she says and backs it up in her lifestyle and, as well, in her career as one of Canada’s top figure competitors. She’s not only refreshingly candid, but as serious about fitness as anyone I’ve met, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a trainer to get anyone else into shape.
In closing my interview with her, I wanted to find out two more things about Jane that few people know. First, I asked her who her all-time favorite figure competitor was. Without hesitation, Jane replied, "Monica Brant. She carries herself with pride and always has a positive upbeat outlook. She has been a great motivator over the years and now is one of my friends. Next, I asked Jane what her competitive career highlight was so far, expecting her to name either of the two North American competitions that she won. But I was was wrong again. Jane replied, "Placing fifth at the 2006 Figure International.
