Kathleen Gauthier
My name is Kathleen Gauthier and I am 26 years old. I am a full time mother to a beautiful one year old daughter, and a devoted military wife. I own my own business as a hairstylist, and specialize in wedding and event hair and makeup. Growing up I have always been athletic, however my passion for fitness started when I joined our local gym in 2009, and it has only gone uphill from there ! My interest in competing sparked when I was doing hair and makeup for one of our local shows. Seeing all the incredible physiques and hearing everyone's journey of hard work and dedication was truly inspiring for me, and my husband as well. Last year he began training for two pro shows in the fall. Being by his side through all of his competition prep only to watch him succeed on stage was something unexplainable! I figured this spring would be my chance. I competed in the bikini fitness class on March 16th at the OCB Green Mountain Thaw in Brattleboro, VT. I took first in all three classes; as well as taking overall champion in bikini debut. I also competed on March 29th at the OCB Liberty State Natural in Syracuse, NY, and placed fourth. I am very excited to be sponsored through IREP Athletics. I have the opportunity to be a part of an amazing team, while receiving customized training to achieve my physiques full potential. Thank you so much IREP for bringing me on to your awesome team. I can't wait to see what the future holds !

Daniel Woods

My name is Daniel Woods and I'm originally from Ticonderoga, New York. I am currently Active Duty in the United States Air Force stationed in Great Falls, Montana.

I began to take weight training seriously in 2011 while deployed to the Middle East. I grew up my whole life always being the small kid. Once I started seeing results I was completely hooked. I have decided that I will be separating from the military to follow my passion in becoming a personal trainer. I am a Certified Personal Trainer through International Sports Science Association, CPR and AED certified through American Heart Association, Personal Training Leader certified through the United States Air Force, and Self Aid Buddy Care First Responder certified through the United States Air Force.

There is no greater feeling than reaching goals that you once thought were impossible. I am happy to be part of team I.R.E.P. Athletics. They are helping me live my dreams and become part of something great. I love helping people reach those "impossible" goals, and getting them to realize just how strong they truly are on the inside and out.

Eric Tucker: NGA PRO

I am a 34 year old Personal Trainer and Fitness Director at Concourse Athletic Club, also the owner of ETX Fitness. In my years of elementary through high school. I competed in a variety of sports; soccer, baseball, basketball, cross country, and track and field. It wasn't until 2003 when I joined a gym and began weight training for the first time. That I really developed a passion for personal training and bodybuilding. I became a NASM certified trainer in 2012, and could not wait to start helping people. Through many experiences of others and some of my own I decided to broaden my training knowledge in nutrition and corrective exercise. In 2013 I became a NASM CES specialist and received my Precision Nutrition certification. To take that even further I am currently enrolled in Life University seeking a degree in Dietetics, to be completed in 2017.

I am also proud to be a P4P Muscle Athlete, and now a member of the IREP Team.

I am currently training for the DFAC World Finals in Miami on Nov 1 2014, and hope to get my pro-card this year.

I believe in perseverance, motivation, and the right knowledge are all you need to reach any goals no matter how tough they may seem. I also believe in the "natural way." Natural foods, natural competitions, and natural supplements are everything that I live and stand for.
