Karen did not really get into fitness until she was 30 years old. She remembers her first visit to a gym as a nerve wracking experience and quite intimidating. But as we so often discover, fear does not equal reality, and Karen actually found that not only did she really enjoy training and the effects upon her body, but that she had a real talent for it, even dare we say it, a competitive streak.

A few years later she qualified to teach exercise classes, gym instruction and personal training, her life since has taken on a whole new direction and meaning, both through work and also in terms of personal satisfaction.

Since 1995 she has competed as a Natural Body Builder and has won an incredible two British Titles. Not only that but she was placed well in the Professional World Finals which is a great result although Karen being Karen is still hungry for a win in this area.

Karen teaches Master Classes both nationally and internationally and her skill and charisma have led her to have worked in the highly competitive arena of TV chat shows and commercials and significantly as a choreographer.

Karen is an excellent example of how to embrace life and live true to who you are without limiting your beliefs. She still teaches, trains and competes and feels fitness has given a real quality to her life which she hopes will inspire others.

    Hi April Not the easiest question to answer with a direct yes or no. Men will build muscle faster than women as they naturally have more male hormones in them to do so. Some men will build muscle quicker than others just as some women will build muscle quicker than other women genetics play a big part in this. Also the amount of effort a person is able to put into their training, male or female, will make an enormous difference. Sometimes you think you are training hard but if pushed a bit every one can train harder, so muscle will be build quicker. A starting weight again is so dependant on each individual, male or female. As a good rule of thumb if you can execute 15 repetitions of an exercise with good technique then the weight could be considerably heavier to do the same good form for 10 to 12 repetitions, so go for the heavier weight. Once you can get up to 15 reps with the heavier weight then up the weight again and so on. Majority of women get tied up with the thought that they should lift light and do loads of reps to get definition this can help with seeing the definition once the muscle is built, but it's not a place to start as you need to build the muscle to be able to define it! So lift heavy enough to be struggling with the last repetition or 2 of each set, look to do 3 to 4 sets and endeavor to put your weight up a bit each set until you feel the technique is suffering. It's impossible to muscle too much muscle by mistake, so many ladies think they are going to wake up one morning looking too muscular, it's a long slow process and you'll have plenty of time to judge how you look along the way. ....and John a thorough warm up is good as it gets the muscles prepared for work, not to the point of a sweat though :)
