Nakeata Graham won the open bikini category of the NGA Natural American Bodybuilding Championships and earned her professional card (which allows her to compete for cash purses) at Irondequoit High School in October. Nakeata finished near the bottom of her division back in the Spring competitive season and used it as motivation to train and eat smarter in preparation for her victory. It is that tenacity and focus that we honor with the cover photo this issue. Congratulations Nakeata!
You can count on us to share information, motivation and inspiration year round, but the New Year is where we all ‘go to work.’ The Healthy Edge Body Transformation Challenge will be back in January to assist those of you who choose wait until the temptation of tantalizing baked creations, office parties and traditional seasonal goodies are behind us to get focused on your workouts and eating healthier.
