Today I speak with IFBB Pro Kristen Reilly. She was born and raised in Northern New Jersey and grew up with a super active/athletic background. She played almost every sport you can think of, but never really fell in love with anything except for horseback riding. Before her fitness/bodybuilding career, she poured her heart and soul into horses and competing in the show jumping arena. This was her life from the age of 7-28. She came to a point in life where she had to put riding on hold and that is when she decided to put all her energy into fitness and bodybuilding. 

She started lifting weights around 2013 and began competing in 2018 when she won the overall at her first show. She fell in love with the sport after that and eventually went on to compete at the national level, earning her Pro card in 2022 at NPC Universe.

She was married at a young age and it was an extremely toxic relationship. She hit rock bottom and felt alone, worthless and extremely depressed. Until one day she said NO MORE and left. She put all her energy into the gym and fitness and it truly saved her. She is now remarried to another competitor. He won his Pro card in Classic Physique art the same show as Kristen! Outside of fitness and bodybuilding she is a full time hair stylists. She owns a private studio in New Jersey where she specialize in hand tied hair extensions and natural looking hair color.

Topics covered include:
-toxic marriage/relationship
-depression and low self esteem
-binge eating after shows
-dangers of comparison
-finding your soul mate
-developing discipline
-prep versus improvement season
-having a love of fashion
-working as a hair stylist
