Candice Perfect – Rising Fitness Competitor & Bikini Sensation


Candice Perfect - Fitness and Bikini Competitor

Briefly share with us your background (Education, Interests, etc.)?

I am one of the most ambitious, dedicated, hardworking, reliable, go-getters you will ever meet. If I say I’m going to do something, I do it… and I do it right. I believe in putting your full effort into things, otherwise why waste your time?

Candice Perfect Bikini Competitor

I am a lifelong Alaskan resident but am moving to Los Angeles, California in July 2012 to pursue opportunities in the fitness industry and to obtain my Master’s of Public Health degree from UCLA. I graduated in 2011 from the University of Alaska Anchorage with various Honors such as: Magna Cum Laude, Departmental Honors, Leadership Honors, Seawolf Leader Award, Phi Kappa Phi, and Pi Sigma Alpha. I also managed to complete my Bachelor degree in 2 ½ years time!

I wrote my undergraduate senior thesis on the history of various public policies and the impact they have had on the food supply over the years which in turn has contributed to the increasing rates of obesity in the United States. My thesis also covered how various media influences and increasingly favorable portrayals of obesity have altered public perception of the epidemic. During my graduate studies at UCLA, I intend to conduct research similar to the topics in my undergraduate thesis.

My immediate goals in the fitness industry are to earn my IFBB Pro Card and make my pro debut before the end of 2012. Once I earn my Pro Card, I hope to qualify and compete at Olympia and the Arnold Classic. A couple of my longer term goals are to make a name for myself in the fitness industry as someone who is dedicated to helping people achieve their weight loss and fitness goals; I will be looking to build a clientele of people willing and motivated to make a healthy lifestyle change. I would also love the opportunity to become a spokesperson.

Although I’m still new to the industry, I am very creative and intend to own my own brand one day. I am all about self-promotion and have managed to earn several awards and titles within the last couple months.

Here are a couple of my most recent accomplishments:

  • FLEX Magazine Bikini Model Search Finalist, June 2012
  • Team EDGE Timeline Cover Model, June 2012
  • “Girl of the Month” on MuscleProdigy.com, June 2012
  • “Kandy Girl of the Week” in Kandy Magazine, May 2012
  • 2nd place, Physique of the Week Contest

I have also been lucky enough to be interviewed as a featured fitness competitor and bikini model on several well know fitness resource websites such as DualFit, Directly Fitness, Six Pack Factory, Trimmed and Toned, Fit Body Hype, and Figure Bikini.

Who has inspired you the most to succeed as a Fitness Competitor?

There are several people within the industry that I am inspired by and look to for motivation. The person who has inspired me the most however, is my coach from Team EDGE, Ingrid Romero.

I am a very driven, dedicated, and optimistic person with an excellent work ethic. It is rare that I find somebody with the same qualities that I can look to as a role model. Ingrid is not only a wonderful coach, but has become a great friend and someone that I admire as not only a force within the industry but also as a person.

What competitions have you made appearances in? From these, what were your
placements (titles won)?

  • 2nd place, 2012 NPC Los Angeles Amateur Grand Prix
  • 4th place, 2012 IRON MAN Magazine/LA FitExpo Naturally Bodybuilding Championships (my first show EVER!)

Candice Perfect Rising Fitness Competitor

My next show will be nationals in pursuit of my IFBB Pro Card!! I am 5’4” so I am class C. My next competition is in July at the Jon Lindsay NPC USA National Bodybuilding Championships in Las Vegas!

Jada Kelly – Bikini Competitor

Jada Kelly – Bikini Competitor


Jada Kelly, bikini competitor and all around fitness girl who has all the makings of a future IFBB Pro!

1. Briefly share with us your background(Education, Interests, etc.)?

I was born and raised in Southern California and the oldest of 3 girls! Dance and cheer was my exercise from elementary school through High School.

I discovered my love for fitness while I was in college, studying Sociology at UC Riverside. I needed a job and the Student Rec Center was hiring Weight Room Assistants. I started working there during my sophomore year as a glorified maintenance girl!!

My job was to sweep the floor, wipe down machines and update a monthly “fitness” bulletin board. I loved the energy of the gym and started to learn more about weight training from my boss and through my research while making the bulletin boards.

Long story short, my boss saw a passion for fitness in me before I even knew I had it. He gave me my first opportunity to be certified as a group aerobics instructor and I started teaching classes at the Rec Center.

About 6 months later, he gave me an opportunity to be certified as a personal trainer. I started training clients and haven’t stopped since!

In 2010, I decided to tackle the challenge of competing in the NPC. My life is full as I split my time hanging out with my amazing husband, teaching PE to middle schoolers, volunteering at my church and training to be the BEST competitor I can be. I love to laugh, love to cook and love to inspire others on their own fitness journey!

2. Who has inspired you the most to succeed as a Fitness Competitor?

My husband is my biggest inspiration! He believes in me even when I struggle! He is awesome because he doesn’t just inspire through his words. He inspires me through his actions and I love him for that.

I am also inspired by the amazing, strong women who live out healthy lifestyles, especially Jennifer Dietrick, Amanda Latona, Missy Coles and Alicia Marie. I love how all of these women love life and live healthy at the same time! They keep me focused and determined to reach my competitive goals. Next step is earning my IFBB Pro Card!!!

3. What competitions have you made appearances in? From these, what were your placements (titles won)?

  • March 27, 2010-  Muscle  Contest Los Angeles, Unlimited Bikini, 5th place Class C
