KickAss Radio with Kristi Winger Szudlo welcomes AJ Ellison, the 2013 WBFF World Muscle Model, to talk about his personal journey in the world of fitness competition. Listen in as he shares the many reasons why he competes and what does fitness really mean to him.
Meet AJ Ellison. He was born in Merced, California and now lives in Kansas City, MO. He grew up a military brat so he’s lived in many places from California to North Carolina and even in his mother’s home country, Japan! It was quite an experience to move about every 4 years but with that he realized how much he enjoyed people and diversity.
His journey to becoming a personal trainer began with his first passion, running. He put on track spikes for the 1 time during his junior year in high school which led to a solid middle distance career at the University of Tulsa and continuing on to qualify for the 2000 Olympic Trials in the 800m. Years later, he fell in love with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA. After a severe tricep tear in February of 2010, he re-evaluated his priorities and being able to maintain his fitness with longevity was at the top of his list. He turned to fitness competitions as his new outlet. During his journey as a fitness competitor, he’s been blessed to secure a Pro Card in the Muscle Model category with the WBFF in 2011, and just recently won the 2013 WBFF World Muscle Model title. He’s also been honored to be published in magazines such as Natural Muscle, Fit & Firm, Status Fitness and KC Fitness Magazine.
