Jackie, 35, has been bodybuilding for less than three years but has somehow managed to carve herself a seriously built, show-winning physique.
Her biceps and back are particularly outstanding and her conditioning is near show-level all year round.
As she sat in the hairdressers getting her 'do' for her next show the UKBFF North West Qualifier, on 5 May 2013, at Parr Hall, Warrington, England the mom-of-two spoke to realfemalebodybuilding.com.
“The biggest thrill I have got from my female bodybuilding career so far is my children being proud of me. They were there to see me win my first competition, that was amazing!
“It was actually my kids that gave me the confidence to get onstage in the first place, having both performed countless times themselves onstage for the school orchestra all around Blackpool in front of big audiences, so I thank them for that.”
Jackie lives in the British seaside resort of Blackpool with her husband and two kids aged 11 and 12.
She says she was quite shy growing up but that female bodybuilding gave her a level of confidence.
“I have always been shy since I was a child and tried my best to keep away from spotlight situations.
“But my husband encouraged me to start training and I am so I'm pleased I made myself do it, I know I would have regretted it.
“I'm living my dream! I'm doing something that I love. Even met and spoken to women bodybuilders which i had only seen in magazines and videos!
“I've been onstage in front of an audience and judges which I never thought I would ever be able to do and loved every second of it!”
A quick look at our sneak peek gallery of Jackie shows just what amazing condition she's in. So go along and cheer at the Warrington show on Sunday – Jackie Hague is a star in the making!

How many years have you been competing?
2012 was my first year of competition after 2 years weight training. I'm currently getting ready to compete in my second year.
What contest are you prepping for now?
Having competed in the women's Bodybuilding class in my first year of competition, I have decided to give the new Women's Physique class a go this year. After much thought, I've come to the decision that it would suit my feminine body shape and condition.
How's it going/where are you at!?
As with all competition prep, there are bumps along the way. It nearly always never goes how you want it to. For example, I have just come down with a chesty cold 4 weeks out. But it happens, you just have to get on with it. Even so, I am happy to say it's progressing nicely :)
How many years have you trained?
I will have been training 3 years in May 2013. I did a bit of weights about 14 years ago before having my children, nothing on the same level as now- my diet & training are far superior.
How and why did you start?
It was my other half who first got me in to weight training. He showed me the ropes as he has been doing it many years and still continues to.
I was an active child. I enjoyed many sports at school. It gave me a lean 6 pack body from an early age and even a good set of guns- which some would argue are my best body part :)
I just love the look of a healthy strong physique!
What is your dream?
Do you know what? I'm living my dream! I'm doing something that I love. Even met and spoken to women bodybuilders which i had only seen in magazines and videos! I've been onstage in front of an audience and judges which I never thought I would ever be able to do and loved every second of it!
What is your short term goal right now?
Getting my lower body to match the condition of my upper body for competing this year. Women naturally hold weight on their lower body.
What keeps you motivated?
Seeing the constant changes in my body. There is nothing better than having all your efforts pay off. This sport is all about 'progress'.
What do you love most about bodybuilding?
It has given me so much confidence and I have gained knowledge in diet and training which I'm able to pass on to other people who are just starting out on their health/weight training road, and I love the fact I can help them on that journey.
And what do you hate the most?
Unfortunately this sport doesn't have a good reputation. Manly due to the fact that the (general public) lack knowledge of what goes in to what we do. They put it down to (yes I will say it) Steroids. They don't seem to understand the effort and sacrifice you have to put in to this sport. So that is what I hate the most- ignorance.
What is the biggest thrill or moment you have got from bodybuilding?
My children being proud of me, when they were there to see me win my first competition, that was amazing! It was actually my kids that gave me the confidence to get onstage, having both performed countless times themselves onstage for the school orchestra all around Blackpool in front of big audiences, so I thank them for that.
Also getting through to the last 6 at the British Championships, my family and friends reaction when I told them I'd made it was a great moment I'll never forget!
How often do you train?
6 days a week.
What is your program/split?
An off season example-
What really works for you?
Changing my training split around. I like to mix things up and keep it fresh.
Favourite bodypart to train and why?
Legs in the off season- I love training them heavy! Chest & Shoulders, you can't beat a good pump!
Biggest improvement in last 12 months?
Has to be my Legs. I've gained size on them. They were my main focus after the quarter finals 2012.
Improvements you are targeting?
My condition coming in to the new competing year.
What tips would you give to newbies?
1. Don't try and lift too heavy, the most important thing about training is strict form.
2. Ensure you are eating properly, without proper nutrition your efforts in the gym will be wasted.
3. It's all about consistency, keep at it, you can only progress!
4. And lastly, enjoy it!
Any training secrets or amazing exercises which have worked for you?
If you have a flagging body part, try changing your training split around to give it more focus.
I stick to the basics (Old School) for adding mass. e.g- Squats. DeadLifts. Barbell Rows. Dumbbell Presses. Pull Ups etc...
