Kim PerezWhen I finally broke through in competing in my first Ms. Olympia last September, I took the stage aware and proud of the long journey I took to get there. Much of that resolve can be attributed to my family, and, in particular, my father, mother and brother.

As the daughter of a military dad, I had the privilege to see and experience different cultures in distant regions of the world while growing up. As a child of an amateur bodybuilding mother, I learned the basic principles of conditioning that made me the professional bodybuilder I am today. As the sister of an athletic brother, I gained the will to compete by always following his example.

By the time I was in high school, I was already running cross-country and track and field, where I excelled as an all-around athlete competing in the 100 and 200 yard, 4 x 4 and one-mile relay, and earned a track scholarship to Eastern Oklahoma State College.

In 1992, I moved to Oklahoma City and started to lift weights while working as a model for John Casablancas and other local modeling agencies. Safe to say, my modeling career at 115 pounds was soon over once my body mass had increased and I had put on 25 pounds of muscle. This transformation I underwent made me realize my calling in life and my love for lifting weights soon became self-evident.

The gym became my home away from home. In 1994, I joined the American Amateur Power Lifting Federation (AAPF) and gained exposure as a power lifter. In fact, I not only won my first meet, but I ended up going to both the State and World meets, where I broke the State and World power lifting records benching 195 lbs. and 215 lbs., respectively. The notoriety I gained at these meets allowed me to make friends in the bodybuilding community and, by 2002, I followed their encouragement in competing in my first bodybuilding pageant.

Granted, I had naysayers. But the doubt expressed by those closest only motivated me more. I was determined to master my diet and elevate my physique like never before. By the time I ended up debuting physique at the NPC Oklahoma, where I placed first in the novice division, I knew I was on my way in pursuing my goal, which was to be a professional female bodybuilder. My first win, later that year, in the heavyweight class at the NPC Red River Bodybuilding Classic, only reaffirmed that goal.

I can still remember the reaction of my parents and the pep talk my dad gave me afterwards in where he said, "You go all the way. Don't stop here!" I didn't stop. In 2004, I met a gentleman, named Jeremy Minihan, who saw my potential and helped take me further in my bodybuilding career. That year I competed in the Junior Nationals, where I placed 2nd, and the Nationals, where I placed 3rd. In 2005, I gained my IFBB Pro Card by winning the North American heavyweight class and overall.

Over the years, I've been blessed to have a great group of workout partners who have inspired and motivated me; not just as contemporaries, but as friends. I owe all of my hard work and dedication to them. After taking sometime off, I came back this last year better than ever. The support I received from my fans could not be more appreciated. I was especially overwhelmed by the warm reception I received from them when I returned to the stage at the Europa Battle of Champions in Harford last August, and this enthusiasm carried itself to the Olympia. If nothing else, I felt like I owed them something, and this (message) is my way of expressing my most heartfelt thanks to them and to you. Thank you and I hope you enjoy!
