Jaime Franklin grew up on a farm practicing a very active life. She helped out with chores on the farm, practiced competitive gymnastics, and wrestled her older brother like a fiend. In fact, even as a young girl she was so competitive she broke her arm working her brother over. She went on to drop gymnastics and concentrate on track and field in high school, successfully breaking conference records for the long jump and hurdles.
After injuring herself teaching gymnastics, she started lifting weights. Only four months after she started competing in figure contests, she won her pro card. Jaime gave up competing in 2005 to settle down and become a mom, and she currently works as a computer consultant. Of course she still trains!
