Bethany Nelson, at the age of 28 decided to become a Fitness and Figure competitor because of her love for hip-hop dance and performing. She loves to create her own choreography with her signature flirty, strong and powerful style. After discovering she had a severe gluten allergy a year ago, Bethany quickly adapted to a new healthy lifestyle of eating clean and feeling fit for the first time in her life. In just the 15 months she has lost more than 20 pounds and cut her body fat in half!
Bethany is also an entrepreneur and runs an online businesses of her own painted creations. In her free time, she stays busy with fitness modeling, teaching Hip Hop and Chair Dancing classes. Some day she would love to spend most of her time choreographing for fitness competitors. “It’s a dream to be able to do what I love with this brand new “dancer’s body”. It’s an honor to be an inspiration to others along the way. This journey will NEVER get old!”

"A lot of people see me now and assume that I have always been in this shape, but it's only been about a year now! I have actually always struggled to stay in shape throughout my 20's.
By age 26 I had a major onset of chronic pains and migraines that lasted a couple of years
and I put on about 20 lbs. Last fall, I discovered that gluten was the culprit to my
chronic issues and quickly I felt better and shed the pounds going gluten free.
Now I'm in the best shape of my life and heading into my 30's!!"
