Early life and education

Sheila Bleck was born in 1974 in Coos Bay, Oregon, along with her identical twin sister, Sherry. As a kid, her mother was young, unmarried (she and her sister never knew her father), had no child support, and worked a lot. Around the age of 3–5 years old, she and her sister were abused by many babysitters while her mother was at work. Eventually her mother asked her grandmother to step in and take care of them. In 1992, she graduated from North Bend High School.


At the age of twelve, Bleck's mother bought her and her sister their first weight bench. Her motivations to lift was Sylvester Stallone, the Hulk, and Rocky. She also wanted a dancer growing up and thought she could do both. In junior high school, she was involved in modern dance. At the age of 15, she attended her first gym. Within a year, she went onto a powerlifting team, which she competed for over two years. At the age of 17, her friends where encouraging her to compete. When she was 18 years old, at the gym, ‘Better Builds Gym', she received training from bodybuilder Jake Grabow, who educated her on eating and posing. At the age of 18 years, after high school, she started competing. In 2008, she won the NPC Nationals and won her IFBB pro card.


In 2009, John Romano became Sheila Bleck's prep coach for her pro career. Her current prep coach is Dave Palumbo. In 2010, she came in a close second at her first professional competition, the 2010 New York Pro. She lost to Cathy LeFrançois by just one point. Since 2010, she has been in the top six of every professional bodybuilding competition she competed in, with the exception of the 2014 Ms. Olympia. In 2014, she won her first IFBB pro competition, the 2014 Tampa Pro and qualified for the 2014 Ms. Olympia. At the 2016 Rising Phoenix World Championships, Bleck came in 2nd place and won the best poser award.
