NAME: Katie Barnes
AGE: 23
HEIGHT: 5'2"
WEIGHT: 95 pounds
LIVES: Boise, Idaho

PRETTY TOUGH:
"I've been playing hockey since I was fourteen-years old. My dad and brother are both hockey players so it was only natural that I jump on the ice. I'm also the president of the Women's Boise State Hockey Team. And no, the gloves haven't come off - yet."

MY FIRST TIME:
"My friend Crystal submitted her photos so I thought it would be fun to send mine in, too. I've never done a show before but I still went in with the attitude that I could win. It's important to have confidence in yourself."

GET IN THE RING
"I trained with a friend of mine who's an MMA [mixed martial arts] competitor and I loved it! I learned combinations, worked the bag and hit the focus gloves. It's a great way to relieve any frustration or stress."

FULL SCHEDULE
"I'm a full-time student at Boise State University studying business management and I work full-time as a clothing manager for Bodybuilding.com. It gets kind of crazy but I enjoy the challenge."

THE UNGLAMOROUS LIFE:
"People think modeling is glamorous, but it's a tough job and fitness modeling is ten times harder than regular modeling. Not only do you have to be in shape, you have to hold all these poses while keeping your abs tight and flexing your legs. It just goes to show that you should never judge a book by it's cover."

NAME: Mary Jarmolowich
AGE: 28
HEIGHT: 5'5"
WEIGHT: 120 pounds
LIVES: Las Vegas, Nevada

MARATHON WOMAN:
"Three years ago I got sick of being soft and out of shape, so I decided to run a marathon. I trained for five months and ran the Las Vegas marathon in twenty-five hours. Since then, I've been running half marathons."

FUEL THE FIRE:
"Last year, I entered the FLEX Bikini Model Search held during Olympia Weekend and got third. That was the second one I ever did and it just got me totally into it. I can't wait to be in the live contest during Olympia Weekend 2009."

JAY FAN:
"I saw Jay Cutler training for the 2008 Olympia and then I got to see him at the show because I was a presenter during the finals. I was rooting for him all the way! Even though he didn't win, it was awesome seeing the end result of all the training he did leading up the show."

EXPOSURE:
"This year, my goal was to get in the magazines and meet more people in the industry. I've found something I really enjoy and I'm going for it because that's the key to be happy and successful. Find something you like and just do it."

ONE DAY:
"The best thing you can do for yourself is to take it one day at a time. Set a goal and then take the steps to reach it. If you don't make it, then keep plugging away until you do. Then you set another one."
