For this beauty, it’s all about the legs. As the 2015 Pikes Peak International Boxing Tournament 132lbs Champion, she can definitely say that legs contribute to a powerful punch. She’s gained that strength through dedicated hours at the gym. How does this 24-year-old maintain her drive? “At least once a month try a new activity. It is important to stay motivated and inspired. My greatest sources of motivation and inspiration have stemmed from meeting new people while trying new activities.”

According to this 51-year-old fitness trainer, model, and minister, exercise is more than just for looks. He and his company, LP Fitness, believe that the mind, body, and spirit are one. “All need to be addressed in order to achieve long lasting success. Exercise keeps my mind sharp and my spirit strong.” Besides helping clients lose weight and regain their strength, he volunteers at Shelby County School’s Very Special Arts Fest to encourage children who are physically and mentally disabled. “I want to be part of the solution to helping our city, our citizens, really live healthfully.”

Whether it’s TRX, Pure Power, Turbo Kick, running, cycling, or bootcamp, this 43-year-old mother of two and owner of LiveFIT Bootcamp & Studios knows how to stay fit. But her real secret lies in clean eating. With a large collection of healthy recipes, she devotes her Sundays to preparing nutritious meals for the week ahead. “Meal prepping increases your odds of staying on track immensely! There is no magic pill that will offer lasting results. Plan and prep for your week to be successful. And keep it simple!”
