The Confessions of a Bikini Pro Podcast is the only place where IFBB Bikini Pros share their struggles, strategies, stories, insights, and advice in a real, raw, and vulnerable setting. Host, Celeste Rains-Turk, dives into the parts of these professionals’ lives that aren’t always openly discussed in the public eye or on social media (You know, the stuff we tend to wonder about the most).

There are a wide range of topics discussed including, but DEFINITELY NOT limited to; post show rebound, health complications, eating disorders, mental illnesses, winning mindset, dealing with losses, judges feedback, approaches to the stage, life outside of competing, money, relationships, philosophy, pursuing passions, and SO MUCH MORE!

Today I speak with IFBB Pro Erin Kamm. She has been into fitness since an early age, having swam varsity swimming throughout Middle/High School; however, much of her life was overshadowed by a severe eating disorder that totally consumed her for over 15 years.

But that all changed when she started weight training in 2015. What began simply as the desire to stay “skinny” and get abs, quickly turned into a true love for fitness and bodybuilding. Erin stepped on the NPC stage for the first time in the fall of 2016. She since competed in 10 regional shows and 8 national shows, before earning her IFBB Pro card at NPC Universe in 2022.

Through bodybuilding, Erin has not only achieved ED recovery, but also discovered her love of competing and her passion and desire to inspire and help others overcome their own struggles and achieve their own health/fitness goals. She strives to teach her clients the importance of focusing on sustainability and balance to ensure that they can not only achieve their goals, but maintain them long term as well. Health is a top priority for Erin and her clients- not only physical health, but mental and emotional health as well.

Topics covered include:
-history of eating disorder
-anxiety and depression
-the journey to Pro
-coaching with Fit Body Fusion
-seeing bodybuilding as a privilege
-gaining weight in the off season
-dealing with grief
