San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2009
Professional trainer Wendy Ida, http://www.wendyida.com, was the winner of three top trophies in the 2009 NPC San Diego Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Championship on March 21, 2009. Ida won a First Place Gold Medal in the Women 45-plus category, Second Place in the Women, 35-plus category, and Second Place in the Women, Unlimited category.
Known as the "Fitness Warrior," Wendy Ida is the owner of Wendy Ida Fitness in Los Angeles, CA. Ida is a Nationally Certified Master Trainer and a nutrition specialist who specializes in helping women over age 40 to achieve fitness results. She had never competed in a bodybuilding event before the NPC San Diego Championship.
Ida, who is 56, did not begin her own fitness training until after age 40. When her passion for fitness transformed her body, career and life, she thought it only natural to take her skills to the next level and help other women to achieve their own health and fitness goals.
"Working out is my cup of coffee in the morning," says Wendy Ida. "I love how it makes my body smile. But my greatest reward is seeing how I inspire others to step up their game. It's a wonderful thing to see how the power of fitness can set you free."
Ida is the author of the upcoming book, "Take Back Your Life: Wendy Ida's 'No Nonsense' Approach to Health, Fitness and Looking Good Naked!" Her book is endorsed by Cindy Popp, Producer and Director of CBS's "Bold & the Beautiful;" Actress/Recording Artist, Eloise Laws; Professor Sidney E. Morse, Publisher, "In the Black" California Magazine; Tina Treadwell, Entertainment Producer & President of Treadwell Entertainment; Rickey Ivie, Esq., Ivie, McNeill & Wyatt and others.
