Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
Twenty year old Cara Ovis (http://www.caraovis.com) secured her first major win in the growing international Fitness America - Fitness Universe competition by winning the 2011 Ms. Bikini America title in Las Vegas, Nevada on 11/20. Fitness America (http://www.fitnessamerica.com) features fitness competitors from around the world in several different classes of muscle development. Ms. Ovis burst onto the fitness scene earlier this year by winning the 2011 Model New Mexico competition at the Hard Rock Casino Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She was a finalist at the Model Universe competition in Miami in June, and placed second in the 2011 Model America Championships.
Ms. Ovis has had a long hard road to fitness success. In high school she was often bullied for being overweight. At one point she weighed over 160 pounds. With the encouragement of her friends and family, she joined a gym, got her diet under control and started to live a healthy lifestyle. She hired well known fitness coach Mike Donathan (Defined Fitness, Albuquerque) and started collaborating with 2009 Fitness America winner Cristin Kiburz of CK Iron (http://www.ckiron.com). The team approach has helped her rise to the top of the fitness industry.
"It's truly surreal what a journey I've been on during the past year. I have taught myself that through hard work and determination anything is possible. Fitness has completely transformed my body and given me a quality of life I didn't think was possible".
Ms. Ovis is currently a junior at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Her goal is to continue to grow her portfolio in commercial and fitness modeling while completing her undergraduate business degree. Additional inquiries please contact info(at)caraovis(dot)com.
