Kelly Lockyer shares her story with Musclebombshell:

I can still remember the torture of being in gym class throughout my elementary, middle, and high school years, being picked last for any type of game that involved skill.  I am absolutely the CLUMSIEST person, still to this day.  Playing volleyball in high school only because it was the only sport I didn’t absolutely hate and because my friends were playing. I remember my child years as being chubby and never really into sports.  Whenever I show my friends now photos of me growing up they want to put me on some type of Montel Williams “look at her now” show!  One of my first memories was when I was a toddler, maybe 3 or 4 years old?  I went into a restaurant with my mom and stuck my WHOLE face in a cake on the dessert cart as the waitress walked by with it.  I told everyone it was because I wanted to see how the cake “smelled.”  My love for cake will never exactly go away but if you told me that day I was swimming in frosting that one day I would be competing in my first fitness show…and winning it, I would have giggled in their face, and asked for more cake.…BUT that’s my story.

I always loved being outside as a child.  I have never really been big into TV and was always outside in my pool growing up in the summer.  Again, back to the lack of coordination skills, I couldn’t ride a bike very well, but I still loved being outside and taking “walks” around the neighborhood with my girlfriends.  At age 15, I joined a local gym, and continued to workout religiously even throughout college 6-7 days a week.  After college I heard about this new crazed work out Cross Fit, and really only joined because I was told that I could never do it.  I took that as a challenge and was hooked by the “cult” instantly, and Shoreline CrossFit became (and still is) like a second home to me. I set some PR’s, lifted some serious weight (or so I thought) for awhile and than realized I needed a new fitness goal.  I wanted to find something that incorporated my love for working out with my love for being one sexy, sassy, and classy son of a bitch! Than I found myself jumping head, feet, arms, pretty much every body part first into training for my first ever fitness competition in December of 2012.  After 16 weeks of intense training I competed at the WBFF (world beauty fitness & fashion INC) Fitness Atlantic Show in April of 2013.  I placed first in the fitness diva tall category, EARNING MY PRO CARD and I placed fourth in the bikini division tall.

Working out is truly the highlight of my day; what I look forward to.  The contest prep journey and the attitude of a fitness competitor were what I needed to bring my fitness to the next level.  The competitive, yet supportive atmosphere is what I needed to crank my workouts up a notch.  This is the first time in my life that I can confidently say that I feel like an athlete and I’m not tripping over a ball, stick or being picked last.  Competing has made me more mentally and physically stronger than I ever have in my life.  I want to bring out the inner fitness diva in every girl because I know deep down everyone has it and it has become my passion in life.

Community Service Question: I recently started a fitness blog to reach out to my followers in order to share my fitness tips, work outs, recipes, motivational tips.  I am currently studying for my online personal training certification.  I am also a consultant for Isagenix all natural products, consistently holding nutritional/info seminars about their products to those who are interested in transforming their body and overall wellness.

I had the pleasure of meeting Katia about a year ago backstage at a competition. That was the night she won her class and overall. One look at her and you could tell she was clearly a winner. Read more about Katia …..

 

 

Tell the readers a little bit about yourself…

I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia and a graduate of Georgia Southern University. A freelance model and bikini competitor, I love to perform.  I am also a lover of the arts. Live jazz music, theatre plays, amusement parks, carnivals and roller skating are a few of my favorite things; and I think sundresses and flip flops are the absolute best! Health and fitness has become a major part of my life and I am committed to living a healthy, stress-free lifestyle.

What inspires you?
I am inspired by people who set goals and follow through. People often ask me about dieting and exercise, but very few people will actually execute a fitness plan. I am also inspired by my own results. When training for a show, my goal is to be better than I was in the previous show. The training is hard, the dieting is harder, but the sense of accomplishment once you have reached your goal makes it all worth it.

What shows have you done and what were the outcome?

What is next for you?
Right now I am focused on working with my trainer to make
improvements. I am committed to presenting a new and improved me each
and every time I grace the stage. You will see more of me in 2012!
I would like to thank my trainers Roc and Gina Shabazz and my Fitness
Pros family for their continued support. I would also like to thank
Celeste Hunt and Sabina Moise for introducing me to the world of
bodybuilding and fitness. I am so happy with what I have accomplished
thus far. I feel that I have accomplished so much in such a short
amount of time, and I plan to keep the momentum going. I am excited to
see what this season has in store for me. “In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” ~ Proverbs 3:6
