  1. I will be there for Season 3 – I cannot wait to tryout for this competition. I am a Chiropractor from Saint Louis, MO and specialize in nutrition and weight-loss. I won the Saint Louis Body Building Championships in 1997 and played Division I softball in college for 4 seasons as a starter. I am very excited to show my family and patients what hard work and determination can actually do for you.
