ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT – AMY NGUYEN

TANKTEAM!.. Happy Flex Friday.  Check out Amy’s athlete spotlight below.  WOW, transformation is epic!  Amy, see you at the OCB Capital City Classic – Yes I am eating all of the FLEX Donuts!


My name is Amy Nguyen and I am a Hokie and Saint alum. I work full time as a Substance Abuse fitnesspicCounselor in residential drug treatment with Fairfax County and am the founder of the protein donut company, Flex Donuts. I found myself in fitness through losing myself. Being in a past abusive relationship, I was told that dressing nicely and tending to my outer appearance was a sign of disloyalty. I disguised my inner turmoil through excessive alcohol and food consumption. Eventually, I was able to break those chains, which led to my own re-discovery, in and out of the gym! Lifting became my new source of happiness and helped me find the strong, intelligent, and confidently beautiful woman that I have always been.

I competed in my first two bodybuilding competitions as a figure competitor in Spring 2016. I fell in love with fitness and a healthy lifestyle, but always had a sweet tooth! After struggling with post-competition depression and binge eating disorder, I was motivated to find a way for athletes to safely incorporate tasty foods and still reach their fitness goals, all while keeping mentally and emotionally sound. Thus, Flex Donuts was founded. Some of the proceeds from protein donut sales go back to Love 146, an organization devoted to survivor care, prevention education, and training professionals to look for signs of trafficking.

In my spare time, I love to LIFT, blog, fiddle with the ukulele, watch low budget horror movies, and explore different foods. I am happy I am now able to share my passion with others!fitnesspic2

ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT – STEVE KING

TANKTEAM… Post food coma turkey daaaay.  Take some time off from shopping and go get those gains in.  Today’s spotlight is Catonsville Conquer competitor – Steve King.  Steve has an inspiration personal journey that he shared below, thank you Steve and see you in April!


My name is Steve King. I reside in York PA and am 46 years old. 5 years ago I decided to make a life change for myself. I started my journey at a whopping 270lbs and not very healthy. After 4 years of clean eating and busting my tail in the gym 6 days a week I decided to share my results with the natural bodybuilding community. I have been competing for 2 years now with unexpected success in a few different natural organizations. I would like to thank the OCB Matt Shepley and Frank Meekins for providing a venue to show off all of our hard work. Training is my antidepressant and part of my daily routine at this point. In closing stop doubting yourself. If I could do it so can you.

ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT – CARRIE MERSCHAT

TANKTEAMMM….  ALLO!  The next athlete spotlight features OCB Chesapeake Classic figure competitor – Carrie Merschat.  Awesome job at the show Carrie!  Check out her gym here:

http://www.schoolhousegym.net/ and give her a shout: @merschat79

 


screenshot_20161030-2328252I live in Addison, PA with my husband and 3 children. 

I own/operate Schoolhouse Gym & Studio which facilitates Schoolhouse Tae Kwon Do.  I  have achieved my 1st degree black belt in Chung Do Kwan Tae Kwon Do, and have recently taken interest in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and MMA training.  Those types of activities conflict with my lifting at times, especially as I am a hard gainer, but I love a challenge.  My biggest challenge at this moment is studying for my personal trainer certificate as I homeschool my children.

 

 

 

I attended my first OCB event at the 2016 Catonsville Conquer and made it a goal to prepare for my first organized show that coming fall.  I chose the Chesapeake Classic and could not have been happier with a first experience.  I was very pleased with the friendliness and courtesy of the organizers and staff. It was a huge learning experience and will have me better prepared for my next time around.
