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.

KickAss Radio welcomes Hillary Jones, a Chef and Fitness Model, to talk about overcoming her personal struggles in the world of fitness competition. Listen in as she shares how she stopped putting limitations on herself and the things she could accomplish and finally realized that once she believed in herself, she can achieve anything.
In 2010, Hillary Jones competed for the first time in the Arnold Amateur, and placed third among 35 girls in her height class. She did two other shows within the next two months and then competed in her first Nationals later that year. Her experience with competing was extremely unhealthy, but she had come to believe that it was just what everyone did. After competing at Nationals, she vowed to never compete again and spent the next several months battling a very ugly binge eating disorder.
She had always been passionate about cooking and decided to attend a farm to table culinary arts program in Boulder, CO and learned to look at food in such a different light. It was probably one of the best experiences of her life. Her passion for fitness never went away, and she decided to get recertified as a personal trainer and start training clients again. She still also had this desire to compete again and prove that you could do so in a healthy way. In May of 2013, she competed in her first WBFF show and won her pro status. She took some time away from the stage to figure out what she wanted in her life and career and now she is training for her first pro show in Montreal in 15 weeks. She is most passionate about helping women create a balance in their life, where they can create bodies that they may have always wanted, but not have to feel they are constantly depriving themselves or have to spend hours in the gym or on crazy diets. The most powerful thing one can do is show someone all the power that lies within them, once they just let that light shine.

Jeannette Jarnes is a mother of two beautiful children who are her heart, Cheyenne (8 years old) and Parrish (6 years old). She has been married to her lovely husband, Larry for 13 years. She’s also an extremely dedicated fitness competitor.
Dedication and persistence have brought her to this point of becoming a WBFF pro athlete. She has always been dedicated to fitness; playing competitive tennis and running in races. She wanted more and took it to the next level.
She wants to thank her children, husband, family and friends for all their love and support in helping her reach this goal. Her husband has been her number 1 fan and supporter through everything. She also wants to thank all her coaches, Doug Casebier, Karen Dancer, the TBA team and a big thanks to WBFF (Paul and Allison Dillett) for welcoming her in their fitness family. She couldn’t be more proud to be a part of it. Also, sending out a special thanks to all her fans for their support and inspiring her to be the best athlete she can be.
