Cara Christensen

After giving birth to her second child, Cara Christensen had a problem. She had gained 60 lbs during the pregnancy, and had to immediately begin losing weight. She enlisted the help of a personal trainer, drastically changed her eating habits, and began training in earnest. Her plan was to enter a fitness competition only seven months after she gave birth.

Cara loves the fashion industry, and has been associated with the modeling lifestyle for years. She does some modeling, some makeup and hairstyling, and is a pretty good dancer (tap, jazz, and ballet). She was born in Virginia, but now lives in North Carolina. This 31 year old mother of two is 5’7″ tall and weighs about 115 lbs. This is another gal who has been athletic all her life. In addition to the dancing, she has played volleyball, basketball, softball, track and field, and in-line skating.

She says she was surprised when she won her first competition, and plans to do more. It’s a little unfair to compare the progress of ladies who have been active and fit most of their lives to those who haven’t. It always looks like a miracle (and it is), but the beautiful physique was always hiding just inside.
