Her motivation: “I have been training for figure contests for three years, but I’ve been working out regularly for as long as I can recall,” says this former Mrs. Oklahoma 2006, who also competed in the Mrs. America Pageant. “Though I didn’t place there, the experience in the pageant world really enabled me to have confidence and stage presence.”
Her balance: Chazz, a mom and wife who works full time in banking, keeps a consistent training schedule, and she says her secret is working out early in the morning before her family wakes up. She tackles cardio before work and weights after work, changing up her workouts for variation. “I mix weights with plyometrics,” says Chazz, who loves the way incorporating the two gets her heart rate up while working her whole body.
Good advice: “Don’t be intimidated by the machinery or the people there. Slap on your iPod and go!”
What music do you work out to? “A mixture of ’80s rock, pop and rap.”
