Sue found herself in the fitness industry after her Freshman year of college. She had spent the first 19 odd years of her life feeling stuck in her body and didn’t quite know the path she was supposed to take. Sue started following accounts on Instagram for motivation and stumbled into the world of competing. She used starting a prep as her ticket out of the lifestyle she no longer wanted to take part in. She was tired of coping and wanted to starting living. She was coping with her inability to say “no” to others, and to say “yes” to herself. Sue claimed her life back in 2016, took charge, and has never looked back. Sue is an ACE certified trainer, along with being a certified fitness nutritionist. Sue has been coaching and teaching clients for the past few years as well as still pursuing higher education. Sue now resides in Kentucky with her husband, Alex – and pupper, @gusthedude
Katie’s fitness journey began after graduating high school. She had always played sports and was incredibly active growing up; however, once she finished high school and found herself without sports – she ended up lost and without guidance. Katie then turned to the gym to keep herself in shape, but also to see how far she could push myself. She missed the structure and competition that sports brought her and yearned for that. After following more and more fitness accounts on instagram, watching youtube channels, and reading to learn all that I could on my own, Katie was able to make a lifestyle transformation. Which in turn, lead to her learning about competing. Katie competed in her first show in 2014 and found that it was exactly what she had been missing and found a deeper love and passion for fitness than ever before. After she had immersed herself into this new lifestyle, she found herself wanting to help others feel the same way she did. This ultimately lead her to becoming a CPT and fitness nutritionist through ISSA and training clients in person for the past 3 years. Katie constantly is evolving within her physique and knowledge and is excited to now take her efforts online while working with Physique Development. She now resides in Bloomington, Indiana along with her pup, Odin!
Charlotte found her way into the fitness industry during college. After overcoming an eating disorder, Charlotte discovered a deep passion for weight lifting which she says changed the trajectory of her life forever. This inspired her to continue learning about the human body and exercise and ultimately to pursue a career as a coach to help others hopefully do the same. Instantly, she was hooked. Now an ACE CPT and Precision Nutrition L1 nutrition specialist for almost 2 years, she loves helping her clients reach their goals and discover what they are truly capable of in the gym and beyond. She looks forward to continuing her education for years to come alongside the Physique Development family while helping people uncover their true potential. She loves listening to podcasts as well as coffee, books, and watching the sunrise from her porch (bonus points for those last three together). Charlotte now resides in Columbus, OH with her 3 fur children, 2 dogs – Pablo and Carlos, and cat, Phoenix.
Kortney’s passion for nutrition and fitness began seven years ago as an incoming freshman at Indiana University. With a naturally inquisitive spirit and drive for continuous improvement, Kortney decided to build a lifestyle around enhancing her health and physique. Her routines in a college setting were far from “normal” but she quickly developed a newfound respect for the way our bodies are designed.
Kortney was fascinated by the incredible nature of our bodies but struggled to know what was “truth” from reading so much information online. For a few years, she naively adhered to widespread (but inaccurate) rules to try and stay in shape and allowed herself very little time for rest. These habits eventually wrought havoc on her system: chronically elevating her stress hormones, disrupting her reproductive system, and diminishing her ability to be fully present.
With time and continued learning, Kortney realized that something needed to change. She decided to pursue formal education and hire her own physique coach to learn how to support her body and improve her physique from the inside out.
Today, Kortney’s health has never been better. Her knowledge as a nutrition specialist, mentorship from Alex Bush, and anecdotal experiences have intensified her mission to teach others about good nutrition, intelligent exercise, and genuine recovery. She aspires to help clients tune-in to their bodies and steadily make sustainable changes to look and feel exceptional. Kortney lives downtown Chicago near her fiance, Kevin.
