FITBODY’s Kathy Bunch, Breast Cancer Survivor and American Record setting Powerlifter, takes on a new challenge at 50 – NPC Masters Figure Competitions!
I am 50 Years young, and I have worked for the IRS for 26 years – currently an IT Specialist. I am AFAA certified as a Personal Trainer and volunteer at my local gym in Callahan, Florida.
I have competed in powerlifting, in which, I have set American Records but something was still missing for me. I’ve dreamed of competing in a Figure Competition but fear held me back. I finally faced my fear in November 2012 and again in August 2014 and entered a Figure Competition – where I placed 2nd in Masters 50 and Over in the August 2014 show.
