This month she has released 2 books; “Living Living Sexy Fit: At Any Age!” and “Motherhood – Dreams & Success.” Kate says, “I’m committed and passionate about helping people take their sexy back. Whether that “sexy” is about doing work that fires them up, having the body of their dreams, or even having the relationship they desire. To me, sexy is all about living a life of vitality, passion and confidence. It’s about letting go of negative self-talk and feelings of unworthiness, which no longer serve you, so you can live your life all-out.” Catch Kate Mckay at the ’14 New York show on October 18.
’14 Ms. Bikini America competitor Andrea Baker is in the process of launching a virtual fitness business that focuses on physical and mental health. She was not always this active in the fitness scene though. In the beginning, Andrea just wanted a smaller waist, to look good in a bikini and a tighter rear. She soon found out she needed both physical and mental strength for her fitness journey. Andrea says, “I can push myself to get through that last 10 minutes of cardio. I can pump myself up enough to increase my barbell weight. I can exhale harder to knock out those last few reps. What I have struggled to do is shake off the judgments and negativity of others. It has taken all of the mental strength I have to keep going when I’m faced with these challenges, but I have done it and I’m doing it. With my chin held high, I say to you, now that is something to be proud of.” Catch Andrea Baker at the Fitness America Show on November 21-22.
