Jaimie Bernhardt was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. She was the youngest of the three girls in her family, and was unlike her two “girly-girl” sisters. Jaimie Bernhardt was very much a tom-boy growing up and she did not even own a Barbie! As a young girl, Jaimie’s tom-boy side brought on a lot of teasing and bullying for her. Once her family moved to Canton, Ohio, Jaimie decided some things needed to change in her life. She was tired of being that bullied tom-boy. Jaimie finally embraced her girly side in high school where the teasing switched from her tom-boy appearance to her too skinny appearance.
Once in college at Kent State, Jaimie Bernhardt was introduced to weight training. She fell in love with fitness the moment she set foot in the gym, and soon found herself putting on almost twenty-five pounds of muscle. That girl who was teased in high school for being too skinny had finally transformed into a curvy woman.
In 2009, Jaimie Bernhardt competed in her first bikini competition and walked away as the winner of her division. This is when she decided she wanted to try her hand at fitness modeling. Her success in modeling fueled her desire to try something else new, so in 2011 she tried out for Cleveland’s Lingerie Football Team. Out of the 300 women who tried out, Jaimie was one of the lucky ones who made the team!
Through her time as a fitness model, lingerie football player, bikini competitor as well as a trainer and coach, Jaimie Bernhardt has really learned a lot about herself. Discipline is one of the greatest skills she has obtained through her experience. Currently on Jaimie’s list of things to accomplish: become a NPC bikini professional as well as to continue her modeling career. Jaimie’s drive, passion and enthusiasm are clear and they will take her anywhere she wants to go!
