My name is Kara Baccus, and I am a 21 year old amateur fitness physique competitor.  I have lived in the fitness world my whole life, but it took me a while to decide if it’s where I wanted to settle my life. As I was growing up, I realized that I wanted to do something to help others feel better inside as well as out. So, in July 2013 I finished my NASM Schooling with Lifetime Fitness and became a Personal Trainer at Texas Family Fitness. During that time, I was working at a restaurant and met Angelo Keyes, the owner of Bold Warrior. At that time, I had no plan to become a Fitness Model and Competitor. As time passed and I got more into the fitness world, I finally decided that I could have the potential to do so. When I finally started training for my first competition, I knew I was going to need to have an amazing sponsor; someone who could be supportive as well as give me a wonderful social identity. The reason I decided Bold Warrior was a great start was because it’s not just a sponsor to me. Bold Warrior has an underlining meaning to the name and the people involved. Every person, whether it’s a sponsored athlete or just a regular person that wears the clothing is a true warrior somehow some way. To me, this is what means the most; the company and the people involved are caring, genuine, and passionate people helping others to always stay strong. Bold Warrior has their arms open to the world, because when it comes down to it at the end of the day, everyone is a warrior if they are willing to fight. I will be the next 2Before and After
