Born in Latvia, a small yet independent country on the Baltic Sea between Lithuania and Estonia that is known for its strong national identity and diverse culture, Evita at the young age of 15 moved to the capital city of Riga for her studies. Her family’s history is related to sports in various ways.

Her family comes from a background of physical education teachers, so from an early age, competitive sport has been a huge part of her life.

Her real passion towards fitness started at the age of 19, her love for food and not wanting to become an overweight teenager, she joined her first gym where she fell in love with exercising and toning and there she found her passion.

Evita Breide immediately fell in love with fitness.  She changed her eating habits and all on her own she managed to get rid of 22 pounds in just a couple of months!

At that moment Evita realized how easy is to change the body’s composition and fell in love with fitness.

A short time after she moved to Dublin, where she spent 6 years of her life and kept training, and that’s where she started her interest in fitness competitions!

However, having a lack of knowledge how to start, she just kept training all on her own.

Working diligently on her studies, Evita Breide got her personal Trainers Certification and her Gym Instructor Qualification from one of the best schools in Dublin, The Elite Fitness Performance Academy.

Immediately after, she started to work as a gym and class instructor at one of the best gyms in Dublin – Crunch Fitness Premier and that’s where she discovered how amazing it is to do a job you love!

When we asked her, “How is it you make it seem so easy?”  she replied, “It wasn’t easy, especially when you live in a country, where you don’t even speak the language, but it is getting better because I have a feeling my hard work is paying off!”

We also asked her, “Do you believe that by merely setting a goal, one can easily accomplish it?”  She replied “I know I am just in the beginnings of my fitness journey and together with my esteemed coach Danny Marquez who taught me that hard work pays off, and Paola Speciales who personally designed my custom show bikini, I was able to accomplish and beat all odds. It all begins with believing in yourself and since day one, I have proved to everyone that with hard work you can make your dreams come true!”

Evita Breide mastered her life goal and continues pursuing her passion knowing in her mind it just can’t get any better!  Her ambition and dedication carried her off to Spain and left everything behind in Dublin.  Taking a huge risk she accomplished what many individuals only dream of doing.

One important rule she keeps to her forefront is knowing her meal plan and exercise regimens. For Evita Breide a great start to your day includes a lean protein, low carb breakfast all with freshly assorted fruits high in antioxidant qualities.  Keeping her energy balanced and strong throughout her day

Evita Breide is a prime example of what dedication and persistence is all about, she clearly demonstrates that you can easily accomplish what so many only dream of doing when you do what you’re passionate about, there is no limit to what you can achieve.

Her amazing and rapidly growing excellence in the Fitness Industry clearly demonstrates her skills and leadership, but most importantly remember her name, because she is rising to the top of the Fitness Industry faster than anyone ever has.

Tiffany Rose Mockler

Pole Dance Competitor and Fitness Instructor

Tiffany Rose Mockler

Born in the early 1980’s Tiffany Rose Mockler of Saratoga, California has been a fitness enthusiast all her life. As an accomplished athlete, she began six years ago successfully infusing fitness and the intricacies of exotic dance in Competitive Pole dancing.  Tiffany has successfully taken fitness to a whole new level.

Her professional and educational background holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from San Jose State University and became a Certified Personal Trainer at Evolution Trainers in Mountain View, Ca.  While accomplishing both NASM and ACE Certification.  She has taken her passion towards amazing heights.

At the very young age of 19 Tiffany Rose Mockler became the leading National Champion of Synchronized Swimming.  She is a Cancer Survivor and a huge environmentalist, a sort of Left Handed Metal Head. She has competed in Swimming, Synchronized Swimming, Dance and Figure Competitions with great success.

With her personal training certifications, Tiffany Rose Mockler attributes her success to her constant dedication towards self improvement.

Tiffany Rose Pole Dancer

As Tiffany’s involvement with physical training grew, one of her clients, a dancer,  introduced her to a free pole class.  She was hooked immediately and inverted to combining her fitness attributes with pole dancing.

We asked her what her diet is like and she replied, “I was a vegan for 11 years and recently started eating a bit of dairy and eggs but I don’t rely on them that much. My weight training and emphasizing on lifting/corrective exercises with intense short interval cardio every other day, I continue to improve my performance clearly stating, “Never train for your sport with your sport.  Cross training really helps prevent repetitive stress injury.”

Seeing her abilities on how she makes this sport seem so easy and fluid, we asked her what her biggest challenge is and what does she do to manage this challenge, she replied,

“My biggest challenge is people’s misconception of what pole dancing is. It becomes exhausting to educate people on the legitimacy of my sport/art.  So now I just open my Instagram and show them a video clip.  A 15 second video is worth a thousand words.”

“As a winner of the People’s Choice Award, of the Queen Mary’s Pole Dance Championships in 2014 and being selected as a cast member for “Tonya Kay’s Pinup Pole Show”, being a working artist in Hollywood is by far my biggest accomplishment yet.”

How does someone like Tiffany Rose Mockler set her goals we asked, “I like to set short term and long term goals.  I write my short term goals on paper or add them onto my phone for the week.  By chipping away at those I achieve my long term goals before I realize it!  I am a list maniac, it keeps me on task and cuts down on the time wasted when I train.”

“My ultimate achievement would be to teach workshops around the world.”

“Bloom Where You’re Planted!”

Tiffany Rose Mockler is simply someone who cannot sit still or be complacent.  If she is not striving to improve herself, learning something new on a daily basis or helping someone with their goals, she feels miserable.  This is the urge that attributes to her drive.  “Making the best out of every opportunity and situation even if it seems like a drag at the time, you never know what is going to be the moment that changes everything.”

Tiffany Rose Mockler on Facebook

Tiffany has been making huge strides within her balance as a dancer.  Much in part by Taryn Francis Yermilov and her mentor Sergia Louis Anderson whom both are world class dancers.  Their involvement in assisting Tiffany improve her technique and lines are providing the tools to further Tiffany’s way towards being a better dancer.  Her personality and drive while keeping an acute focus as to her dream goals will shortly land Tiffany Rose Mockler in a class all of her own!

About Tammy Streich WBFF Pro

tammy_streich_1Born and raised in small town USA, Tammy Streich is now a personal trainer, group fitness leader, fitness competitor, fitness model and first and foremost a devout wife and mother.

Growing up she was very active and participated in a multitude of competitive school athletic programs.  Her upbringing consisted of learning to balance life, schoolwork and her athletic career, including Basketball, Track, Gymnastics and Cheerleading.  Moving onto her college years as a major in Exercise Science she earned her Bachelors Degree.

Along with her minor in Marketing followed with her degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant, all while Cheerleading at the same time.

Tammy Streich has always had a love for fitness, however life always comes in and tries to tear you down when you think you’re at your peak.  The love of her life, her Father and inspiration suffered a stroke at the very young age of 42.  At this point Tammy became more concerned with health and not just fitness.  She developed a passion for a healthy lifestyle and not just working-out to look good.  She watched as her dad struggled with his disability and after twenty years it has made her appreciate having a strong, healthy and fit body.  She mostly enjoys helping others reach and excel in their own fitness and athletic goals.

Immediately out of college Tammy Streich began competing in Fitness Competitions.  She has always used strength training to excel in sports, however this is the time she really began working hard to change and sculpt her physique.  After several years of successfully competing in the Fitness Categories, (fitness routines and physique) she decided to retire and focus on starting a “Family”.

This took many years, due to fertility issues, however at the beautiful age of 40 she gave birth to her inspiration and today her motivator, a lovely daughter.  Tammy’s decision and goal was that while she was pregnant, she is to set the ladder up high and step right back on stage in a Bikini Model competition just twelve months after her delivery.  This decision came into reality just 14 months later as she was back up on stage and began working for and accomplishing the most pristine and sought after PRO title with The World’s Beauty Fitness and Fashion organization.

Since then Tammy and her sister Carmen Hamm who is also a certified personal trainer and wellness coach with a degree in nutrition both created UBeFIT2, a health and Fitness company that specializes in Individual and Group Fitness Training and Nutritional Education.  Since their commencement they have helped countless individuals thru motivation and education on what it takes to be in the best shape of your life and lead a healthy lifestyle for the rest of your life.

About Kristi Szudlo WBFF PRO

Kristi Szudlo2

Being born half  “Tomboy” and half “Princess” she loved to play with her brothers and their friends climbing trees and racing down the street.

Much as she liked playing with Barbie’s and dressing up with her girlfriends pretending to be the next Ms. America Pageant winner, Kristi Szudlo was not your run of the mill girl.

She has always been a competitive spirit and loved competing with the neighborhood boys.  She was an outstanding runner and started her competitive career in elementary school running for her youth team.  At age 5 she joined her school youth swim team with her brothers and by age 8 was swimming year round and participated in her first state competition.

She also began cheerleading in elementary school during the fall recreation leagues and fell in love with the sport.  She continued cheerleading all thru high school and was always voted to be captain.  At the very young age of three she also was involved with dance and ballet and enjoyed lyrical jazz dance all thru high school.  Not only did she do these highly competitive sports, thru high school she was also involved on a track team as a sprinter, long jumper and high jumper.

Although Kristi Szudlo never stopped working out in any stage of her life she always stayed fit thru college even though sports was not her primary focus.  She concentrated on school and socialization.  Her return to athletics and competitive sports once again began after the birth of her second child at the end of 2009.  She had just become the Ohio “Beauties of America Pageant” titleholder when she discovered she was pregnant with her second child.  Carrying her pregnancy to full term, she was just shy of the 13 weeks it would take to get into shape for the National Beauty Pageant in Myrtle Beach.

Reaching the National Beauty Pageant and winning in at least the fitness category was her goal.  She knew that in order to succeed she had to win at least that.  Though her pregnancy was not easy and was met with all sorts of complications she needed to avoid, it gave her the strength to not only deliver a very beautiful healthy girl, she took 1st runner up in the beauty category, won the fitness and evening gown categories all in just 13 weeks after delivering her new born princess!

Kristi Szudlo is now a WBFF PRO card recipient and a Bikini and Fitness model, a writer, a life coach and a motivational speaker, and the Host of Kick Ass Women.Com radio show.  She is the proud mother of two beautiful children a foster parent and currently a fitness and bikini competitor.  She also works full time in Medical Sales.  As a devout Christian she is extremely grateful of all her accomplishments.  She now trains, manages and encourages some of the world’s most accredited athletes and inspires all those wanting to follow in her footsteps to becoming the Best of the Best in Fitness, Beauty and Pro Competition athletes.

Athlete-Model Christin Rossano

Bestwaytohealth.com Introduces you to;

Athlete/Model Christin Rossano

WBFF Competitor, Fitness Model and Fitness Motivator.

66825_154081488092139_542711515_n

Christin Rossano modeling her beautiful styles

Three years ago Christin Rossano was your typical High School student. Although she struggled with her looks, she was also struggling with her schoolwork, friends and her family’s loss. Even thru these struggles, she managed to have the most supportive family anyone could ask for. Apart from the culinary life that she dreamed for, she had other ideas brewing in her mind.

When Christin Rossano went away for college, she started realizing she was unhappy with her looks. She wanted to become fit, she was always the skinny toned ballerina however she wanted more, and she would have more. As a young adult her eye was caught by those fitness models sporting on the covers of magazines, shows and adds with their beautiful aesthetics. She wanted and craved that life and more.

Although Christin Rossano was motivated to transform her body, others around her tried to change her mind and bring her down off the ladder of her dreams. She remember trusting in someone and telling them her fitness goals only to be told the she would never accomplish her dream of that “Six Pack” abs and a well toned physique.

This just fueled her desires even more, her hearing that someone believed she did not have to courage to accomplish her dream truly made her insane. This was when she realized her dream was just starting to weave itself into reality and it began her journey towards a new life.

1016188_185831058250515_2005538050_n

As the months of training went by Christin Rossano was faced with all sorts of complications, hurdles one might call them. Time management of balancing her culinary schoolwork, friendships, and dance recitals and most importantly working out at the gym, there were plenty of opportunities for her to decide to just give up. At times she would break down and just cry at all the stress that was going on in her life.

That is where she realized that nothing in life was easy. To achieve what no one else can takes courage and a clear understanding that one must do what one thinks they can’t in order to become what most will never get a chance to be. At some point there were times in her career she was close to deciding to give up. She became discouraged, and almost lost all her will power. She had no motivation to continue in the kitchen or the gym.

She and her family faced a tragedy and were met with the news her Aunt got cancer, it was her aunt that gave her the courage to overcome. Her Aunt is a very strong willed woman with high hopes and most of all patience and persistence. After fighting for some time her Aunt’s test results came in and they realized she was almost cancer free. “My Aunt is what gave me my second wind.” she says. She could never imagine the ups and downs her Aunt has gone through but she did it, and if her Aunt can, she most definitely will.

Christin RosannoThis is when she became more determined than ever to continue her dreams and accomplish what most only dream of. Her decision to attach herself to her Alpha Mind Power and focus her mindset to not only achieving the goal but also surpassing it was now an easy task. She stopped making excuses, and realized that there is no real definition for perfection.

Most people think that beauty is only skin deep, and most people do not think to pay close attention to the important characteristic that make a person. Most feel that beauty is based solely on the exterior appearance. To her, true beauty consists of what is on the inside, that beauty comes from the love you give and see yourself with. The Love you give yourself and others finally shapes your personality.

These are the characteristics that became her goal to accomplish what she saw as “perfection”.  The way one can be so kind hearted and generous to others, even to those who have mistreated her in High School. She made it her goal to overcome the body she had and transformed her self into the perfection she always dreamed of.  Cleansing her mind of doubt, self-pitty and resentments is when her true transformation began showing results.

Christin Rossano realized that the universe answers your intentions and gives you what you think about the most. Her new outlook on helping others see that not everything in life is easy, but it is never impossible. Life is always going to throw curve balls at you and she wants teenagers, adults and even elderly adults to realize that if you always believe in yourself, anything is possible.

Christin Rossano’s  VISION

Trying to branch out and get connected with different big time fitness magazines, food magazines, fashion magazines and federations.  She is trying to become sponsored eventually.  Fitness, fashion and eating clean is a way of life to her.  She lives to help others, she would rather help someone out than helping herself.  She is a culinary student from Johnson and Wales University.  She’s in the middle of trying to write her own book targeting culinary and fitness aspects.  She literally lives for it.

Christin RosannoNever in a million years did Christin Rossano see herself where she is in life today, she could never be more thankful from the deepest bottom of her heart. Now at only 20 years old,  a striving student, a daughter and now a fitness competitor. Not just an ordinary fitness competitor but a World’s Beauty Fitness and Fashion Competitor (The WBFF!).  She is now taking on the opportunity in helping others to reach their goals as well, by helping teenage girls as well as boys who are struggling in life with their appearances and show them we can all be beautiful. The ones who are in that unhealthy mental state of mind, the ones who are beaten down by hurtful words from their peers are the ones she wants to show that as a culinary major and an athlete, there are ways to embrace your body while being on a good diet.

Candace Harmon WBFF Pro

by: Andrea Kincaid

Candace Harmon WBFF Pro

Candace Harmon WBFF Pro always has and always will go her own way. Five years after gracing the bodybuilding stage and competing in the figure category, Candace has not slowed down by any means. With her WBFF Pro status now earned, two E-books in the works, and a Power-lifting competition coming up early next year, Candace Harmon WBFF Pro is hardly a woman who will go unnoticed.

Candace Harmon WBFF Pro on Facebook

Originally from Brownsboro, a small rural town in East Texas, this mom of 2 boys and wife of 11 years to husband Jeffrey, has always been an athlete. She was a recognized basketball player in high school and ran track. And, while she was weightlifting in college, it wasn’t until after her second child, Blake, was born in 2006 that she really took training seriously.

When I asked Candace Harmon WBFF Pro what made her get into the competing side of fitness, she told me, “I recall looking in the mirror one day and didn’t recognize that person. It looked like me but I didn’t know whose body that was. It was at that moment I decided to do something about it. I was curious whether or not I could get back in shape after having two kids, but I took it as a challenge.”

“For most women, the thought of working out is enough to exhaust them.” 

Candace Harmon WBFF ProNot only do you have to carve out the proper time to make it to the gym, but you have to be patient long enough to start to see real results. Then, take in consideration the diet and dedication that plays a big important role in achieving that dream body.

Unless you are fortunate enough to have a personal trainer come drag you out of that warm bed in the morning, achieving that fit appearance requires more than just a gym membership and a new pair of tennis shoes. However, Candace Harmon WBFF Pro isn’t like most women or mothers for that matter.

Candace Harmon WBFF Pro used that “other” person staring back in the mirror to fuel her desire to kick it into high gear and show other mothers out there that children shouldn’t be used as an excuse to not stay in shape, but as a catalyst to push yourself a little more each day to that get that physical appearance you have been dreaming of for so long. For those who are curious.  Candace Harmon WBFF Pro maintains an Off-Season body fat of 12% to 13%.

 “Everyone always remembers the moment they take first place in a competition.”

Whether it be for a promotion at their job, the first in line at some big sale or the first to win a big project, for Candace Harmon WBFF Pro, she remembers placing 7th out of 13 at her first bodybuilding competition and next to last at her second one. “The challenge now had been set. I could choose to walk away and think I wasn’t good enough or I could use that moment to push myself harder. I chose the latter.” That hard work, persistence and positivity paid off in May 2013 when she achieved the coveted Pro Status from the WBFF at the Kansas City show.

Candace Harmon WBFF Pro 4When I asked her how it felt to receive that honor after all that she had endured along the journey to that stage, Candace Harmon WBFF Pro shared, “I was in shock, they awarded me my first place trophy, but said nothing about offering me a Pro card. I thought to myself, well, I’ll get it next time and about that time, I was welcomed into the WBFF Pro family! I was overcome with emotion but held it together until I got backstage. That’s when I started to cry. I still get emotional thinking about that moment. I now understand what it means when people say it feels so surreal, it really does!”

After the lights go down and the stage is swept clean of the feathers and rhinestones from the theme wear, the reflection of the journey to stage begins. For Candace Harmon WBFF Pro, her favorite part about being up there, showing off all her hard work and dedication is the pose everyone is asked to do. She enjoys each moment and every second up there because it does go by rather quickly.

For most people, role models can be considered anyone from parents, to teachers and even best friends. Role models are those who aren’t necessarily of fame or fortune, glitz and glam, or even, rags to riches. They are who inspire us in multiple ways in all aspects of life. They are who we think of when we want to quit before our goal is achieved. For Candace Harmon WBFF Pro, her role model is one of both physical and inner beauty, IFBB professional figure and fitness competitor Nicole Wilkins. “Her photos are always classy and having met her in person, I can say she is really down to earth.”

After the long and grueling yet rewarding adventure to the WBFF Pro stage, most competitors take some well-deserved time off. Some even hang up their titles as competitors and go on to pursue other dreams. When I asked Candace what her plans are for the 2014 year, she assures me she is not hanging up anything just yet. “I plan to compete in at least one more WBFF Pro show and in my first Power-lifting event on January 18th in Longview, Texas at the Purefit Performance Fitness Expo.” She’ll also be hosting a clinic for those who are interested in competing.

Often times, many people, women in general, get the wrong idea about what it takes to lean down and still manage to lose body fat while obtaining a fit and healthy lifestyle. There’s a saying, “Don’t expect to look like a million bucks when you eat off the dollar menu.” This couldn’t be anymore correct. For competitors such as Candace, off-season can be a time to unwind, loosen up the strings of a fierce diet, and introduce foods (that are still healthy) back into your daily eating routine. “If I want a little cheat, I take it. I still eat my grits with protein powder for breakfast and I will still eat a lot of fish and chicken for my main meals.” The same goes for the gym.

Once your season has come to an end, some competitors take a week off then jump back in the gym. “I work out an hour and fifteen minutes. I believe you can get an adequate workout in that time. But, you’ll still find me in the gym five days a week. It’s a way for me to relieve stress so I rarely take more than a couple of days off in a row.” And, like every competitor or athlete, we all lose a little fire somewhere along the process. That’s when drive, determination and motivation kicks into gear. You have to dig real deep inside to relight that flame that had you so sparked to want this goal.

“Her poise, gratitude, effervescent personality and contagious smile”

I asked Candace what pushes her on a daily basis. “I am by nature a very driven person. However, being a role model for my children motivates me to be my best. I think it’s important my kids see mommy living her life and doing things for herself. I also think it’s important to see mommy fail from time to time. The way I choose to handle these moments are probably influencing them more than when mommy brings home a trophy.“
