NPC California State Championships

Who am I?
My name is Jamie Kass and I am a Team Edge Bikini Athlete.
I am 26 years old and born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I work a full time office job and love competitive sports as well as baking and traveling.
Describe your fitness journey – why did you start?
I have always been an athletic person. From the time I was a little girl, soccer was my main sport and I loved the feeling of being on a team, working hard, and traveling to different regions to play. Once I went to college and stopped playing soccer, I realized I needed to pick something else up if I wanted to stay in shape. I started working out and experimenting with different plans that I had found online and my interest started to grow.
After slacking for a few years out of college, I quickly gained weight and knew I wanted to get back on some sort of plan. I went to the Muscle Contest Excalibur show in 2016 to watch my boyfriend compete and was instantly intrigued. I noticed the Team Edge booth and saw all of the Team Edge girls competing and it looked like they were having the time of their lives. I reached out to Joe and Ingrid right after and started my 18 week prep right away.
How has it changed your life?
I have always been someone to get interested in an activity but not always finish it. Completing this prep and dealing with the emotional highs and lows has given me the confidence that I can truly do anything I set my mind to. Not only have I seen my body transform, but my mental attitude towards life and healthy living has a whole has completely changed.
What does the future hold for you?
This is just the start for me. I plan to continue to become as knowledgeable as I can about the sport and pursue my dreams of one day becoming a pro competitor.
