Kate Shelby IFBB Pro Figure

How did you get interested in bodybuilding/working out?

I met my husband in a gym and the rest is history! : )

How was your first show like, any interesting experiences?

For my first show (it was fitness) in 1999 I broke my femur while practicing - I got off my crutches (after 12 weeks) and had 6 weeks left to prepare and get my leg back to par. Thank goodness for "muscle memory" because I ended up taking 1st.

What are your future goals in this industry?

I truely want to be an ambassador for the sport. I would love to work within the industry (whether it be supplements or equipment, etc.) as a sales rep. I would also love to make it to the Olympia stage.

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?

Still competing and promoting healthy living to young adults and women across the country.

Any additional notes? People you would like to thank?

I couldn't have done any of this without my best friend, soulmate, trainer and nutrionist - believe it or not this is all wrapped up in one person - my husband. : )
