Kortne Green: How An Injury Lead Her to Bodybuilding

Kortne Green’s journey into the world of bodybuilding started from an unfortunate injury, but like a true champion, she worked through the adversity and found herself on a new and greater path. Although her injury forced her to stop participating in the competitive sports that she grew up on, she never lost her desire to be challenged. She is now gearing up to hit the stage once again this fall to compete in the NPC women’s physique division.

Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

A. First off, I am 24 years old and I was born in St. Louis, Missouri, but grew up in Roseville, California. I am a Northern California demo rep for BSN supplements.

Q. How has fitness changed your life?

A. Fitness has always been a part of my life. I’ve always been active since I was a little girl, playing sports. When I was 22, I tore my ACL/meniscus and decided to retire from sports fully and really get into weightlifting. Ever since then, I haven’t looked back!

Q. When did you know bodybuilding was for you?

A. After my injury, I began a rigorous therapy regimen that required flexibility and weight training. From that moment on, that’s when I had started lifting weights seriously and decided to get into the competition world of bodybuilding. And ever since then, I haven’t looked back.

Q. What is your training and nutrition regimen while training, and when you are in your “off season?”

A. During the season and offseason, my training regimen isn’t that much different. I try to keep the same intensity with high volume workouts to get the best results. Functional training has never really been my thing. I’ve always loved the “old school” way of lifting weights. I feel that is what has worked best for me.

Q. Do you have any competitions coming up? Have you recently competed?

A. I plan on competing in late fall in the physique division. The last time I competed was last July in the figure division.

Q. What advice would you give others in reaching their goals?

A. You have to be 100% committed! Stay motivated and dedicated and trust the process – whether it’s competition or for personal fitness. True success doesn’t come overnight. Always understand and practice your craft because patience is truly a virtue. I always want to aspire to inspire the younger and older crowd of both men and women because I want them to look at me with a goal and say to themselves “I can look like her” or “She’s my motivation to conquer my goals like she did”. That’s why I love what I do. Workout to inspire.
