Tiffany Vann | Boss Bodies Coach
Tiffany Vann-Cole a native of Jacksonville, FL, is an IFBB Bikini Pro and a former professional dancer having danced with the world renown Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. She is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Weight Loss Specialist as well as a Certified Pilates Mat and Apparatus Instructor and Registered Yoga Instructor.
After graduating from The Juilliard School in 2004 she began to incorporate Pilates and Yoga into her cross training to keep her body agile and injury free during my dance career. She fell in love with both disciplines, and knew they would be a part of her life forever. The journey doesn't end there, as in 2012 she fell upon the bodybuilding world. After retiring from dance she saw it as a platform to keep her in shape, and to get back into the discipline that dance provided. That was it! She had little knowledge of how transformational the sport could be. It was far beyond the sculpted, tanned bodies in sparkly bikinis. The transformation was in the hours of dedication and hard work carried out during the journey to the stage. She learned immensely about the importance of proper nutrition and training in accordance with reaching a fitness goal, but the biggest lessons learned were that of finding the willpower to dig deep and push past perceived limitations. She found that aspect of the sport translated to all areas of life, and the mental fortitude needed was what sparked her passion.
Through all of these experiences she realized that she wished to empower others to invest in their fitness as it definitely enhances your life physically and mentally. In 2015 she fulfilled yet another dream of becoming an IFBB Bikini Pro after winning her class at the Jr. USA Championships. Since then she has competed in 6 IFBB pro shows earning top 10 placings in nearly all of them and 3rd place at the Ft Lauderdale Pro. This year will mark her 3rd season as an IFBB pro this
Why do you love Boss Bodies?
I love the support. I believe that a great team must have a strong leader, and since day one Casey has been super supportive and has shown a great belief in me. She takes tremendous pride in her athletes and wants to see each one of them succeed and reach their personal best. This attitude is contagious as it is clear that the women on the team are very encouraging of one another which makes the experience of competing that much more rewarding.
