Francesca “Fancy” Adams is living her dream of becoming a professional bodybuilder. After winning her first competition last year, she is seeking to obtain her professional card this summer. For her to accomplish this, she must raise the necessary funds, which is why she is throwing a fundraiser.

Adams is holding the “Fun Fit” fundraiser to hopefully reach her goal of $2,500. The cost is $10 for adults and free for children. Adams entered the world of bodybuilding in 2012 and after battling injuries and personal setbacks, she is ready to turn pro. She will compete in the Junior Nationals in Rosemont, Illinois, on June 15.

The fundraiser will take place on April 27 at Kimberly Park Elementary School, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The fundraiser will include Zumba, hip-hop dance, boot-camp style workout, yoga and other workouts. Adams will also go over nutrition tips for those in attendance.

“I will be talking about my journey and why they are there,” said Adams. “This is a fundraiser for my first NPC (National Physique Committee) figure bodybuilding competition. Because I won the first show, I qualified for the national show and you have a one-year window to compete in a national show.”

“I am going for a huge goal in going for my IFBB (International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness) pro card within six months. My coaches originally said they think I can do it in two years, but I think I can do it in six months.”

Adams wants to pursue her pro card so quickly because that will allow her to compete on the “next level,” she said. 

“It means you can compete for money and have more opportunities for sponsorships and more recognition and impact,” she continued. 

The total cost for the show is around $3,500, so Adams isn’t asking for the full amount during her fundraiser. She said bodybuilding is an extremely expensive sport, so she needs some assistance to get her to her goal.

“It’s really just to fund a dream, because my hopes are to inspire, especially the youth and young girls, to let them know that they can do anything they put their mind to,” she said.  “I just want to let the girls know, it doesn’t matter what your height is or what your background is, you can do anything you put your mind to.”

Adams expects the competition to be tougher at the national competition in June. To win her pro card, she must win her height class. This allows her to work on her conditioning in preparation for the show.

She wanted to thank Kimberly Park for their cooperation for the event. For those who are not able to come to the event, but would like to donate to the cause, please visit Adams’ CashApp at $fancywellness, paypal at fancywellness@nullgmail.com, or visit her Facebook page at Francesca Adams.

“I am just excited to see the package that I have put together, because I have put on so much size compared to my last show,” she said. “I am also excited to step on stage and hopefully get that win.”
