Alicia Marie is one gal who goes for the gusto—and takes it wherever it leads. The tall, exotic-looking fitness supermodel and multimedia celebrity has a résumé almost as long as her legs but says that her introduction to training was inspired by the comic books she read as a kid, particularly those with Wonder Woman and other female superheroes. She was a boxer before getting into fitness, where her career path has gone from the cover of IRON MAN and other bodybuilding and fitness publications to the IFBB pro figure stage to—well, we’ll let her tell you. One hint: That love of comic heroes turned into a lifetime affair.

Favorite movie or TV show? Favorite movie? So hard to name just one. I am a film buff—give me anything on celluloid, namely in the horror genre. For now I’ll just give you one of my classic faves: “Aliens” (the second one). Television show: “Walking Dead,” “American Horror Story” and “Game of Thrones.” I absolutely love watching Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” on Netflix.
Describe your current training program: It varies because I am not precontest. Right now I am doing five days a week of strength training and five days a week cardio. I am a dancer—ballet, ballroom, funk, jazz and contemporary—and I have to pay attention to how much cardio I am doing so I don’t throw off my gains.
What do you consider to be your greatest achievement? The Booty Bible—writing a book and actually finishing two more books. The second one is coming in late 2014!
What is the number one philosophy you live by? If you want to soar one day, you have to learn to fly. So jump.
What are some things about you that not many people know about?
