What’s New With Claire Rae? Physique of the Year 2015



You have recently announced the winner of the Body Makeover Movement’s Summer Slim Down Challenge.
Yes, that’s right, Keli Park was the winner of the Summer Slim Down Challenge. This was her third challenge and her hard work definitely paid off. She will be coming down to the Olympia with me to do what I normally do down there. Shoot with LGHFX. You can expect to see a lot more of her, including a spread in Fitness Gurls Magazine!

Based off your social media it looks like you have been doing some traveling. What inspired you to hit the road?
A: I always like traveling but recently I felt that getting out and meeting new people and living in different environments would be helpful as I put the new Fit Soul Challenge together. I have also been trying to practice taking pictures with my camera and thought finding new places to do that would keep me motivated. I also wanted to show how to eat on the road through my snapchat for those that are interested on how I do it.

What’s next for The Body Makeover Movement?
A: All the members were invited to come out to Vegas to shoot with LHGFX and Picture Groove. The winner got her trip paid for but I always like inviting all the members on the trips. I find that when people can connect in real life that there is more to gain from the fitness lifestyle. When you surround yourself with other like minded people your success level goes up. I also love putting together photoshoots to glamorize these hard working individuals. When you see yourself in a good light it’s motivation to keep you going. It’s fun and I love meeting everyone on vacation. I also just launched The Body Makeover Movement’s Fit Soul Challenge. It’s the last challenge of 2015. I especially excited about this challenge because we are giving away a portion of the registration fee to Women’s Outreach. This is social group that helps women dealing with domestic violence. I feel passionate about this and helping in this area. We have heard and seen too many women fall victim of this and I believe my program is the kind that helps women build confidence, strength and a sense of self worth. These are the kind of things women need to protect themselves from this. I’m hoping in some way to bring awareness while teaching people to live healthy and happy.


And what’s next for Claire Rae?
I’m heading to Las Vegas myself with the BMM team and will also be hosting the Fitness Gurls Swimsuit 2015 Release Party (which I’m on the cover), but you knew that. Other than that I have relaunched which has become more of a personal blog with my ongoing ventures. I don’t plan on settling down anytime soon. I’m keeping my schedule open and available at this time and I’m just going with the flow with my camera and computer in my bag. I really feel like this last season has been a great season of growth and I look forward to what the future has in store. The possibilities seem endless.

Taylor Brown Model of the Moment



Photo by Aleco Photography

How/when did you get started in training and living a fit lifestyle?
I have always been active and used to competitively cheer throughout grade school. Then when I started college at the University of South Florida, I coincidentally became great friends with a bunch of meatheads and quickly became addicted to the gym. 

>> Buy the issue that Taylor Brown is in below.

What is the most challenging thing about being a fitness model?
Comparing yourself to so many others and the occasional self-doubt. It’s important to focus on yourself and your accomplishments and unfortunately, sometimes it’s inevitable to compare your journey to others, which isn’t fair to yourself. 

We LOVE your physique, what can customers get out of your Personal & Online Training Programs?
Wow, thank you! I offer a very wide variety of programs and training! I currently offer a 12-week program for both men and women which comes with step by step workouts with photos, nutrition tips, cardio, and full access to me throughout the entirety of the program. I also customize programs for individuals that want more of a personal online coaching relationship as well as train a limited amount of clients in Tampa, Florida! 

Do you listen to music while you train? If so, what’s your favorite type of music you like working out to? 
ALWAYS. I actually listen to a wide variety of music, depending on my mood. Some days I’ll listen to a lot of rap, hip-hop, trap, and EDM. Other days I listen to heavy metal. It just depends on how I’m feeling walking into the gym that day! 

What is your current training style, routine or split?
Currently, I switch up my routine often. I do have a training split which always includes 2-3 leg days/week, 2-3 upper body days and either fasted cardio or post-workout HIIT. I have recently been adding a lot more circuit style training and full-body workouts into my routine to step it up a bit and lean out for the summer!

What are your favorite clean foods and splurge foods?
Favorite clean foods? Eggs and fruit! Splurge? Pizza, sushi, anything with bread, pasta and cheese! 

What’s your most memorable photo shoot or the funniest thing that’s happened on a shoot?
Probably the looks and stares I received doing a bikini shoot one day by a very large group of elderly people that must have been on some kind of trip together. There were probably 15-20 of them and they all just stopped and stared, I really didn’t know how to react! Haha.

If you were trapped on an island, what 3 things would you bring with you?
FOOD (water). My pillow and blanket. And, let’s be honest I’d try to have my phone so I could call and get a lot more necessities. 

Oh Monday is here, I got this 👊🏽 Tag someone who needs some Monday Motivation, check her page out she truly is amazing 👌🏽 ———————————————————————————————— Model: @tbrownkins ———————————————————————————————— #alekophotography #mondaymotivation #monday #mondaymood #girlswholift #entrepreneur #fitfemales #model #fitnessmodel #girlswhosquat #tooshietuesday #fitness #fit #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #girlswholift #bossbabe #babesofinstagram #babes #fitfam #inspire #motivate #killthegame #portrait #portraitphotography #beautiful #strongwomen #womenempowerment #goddess

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I feel like most of the “crazy” things I’ve done were when I was younger. Young & dumb. Streaking around the neighborhood, skinny dipping in pools and rivers.

What is your greatest strength?
Making people smile. I always try to be a light walking into a room, you never know what kind of day someone may be having or what they’re going through. I love to just be funny and weird and make people laugh. Laughing is so important (and contagious) and a lot of people don’t do it enough!

You’re a mom to an adorable 1-year-old boy! You’ve managed to bounce back to incredible shape also! What tips can you give for expectant moms and moms who are looking to get back into shape?
Thank you so very much, it honestly was consistency and patience. I also did not do a lot of cardio but focused on lifting and making sure my food macro levels were on point so I could slowly lose weight.

How much has your life changed since having a baby? Are there any things that have surprisingly remained the same?
There has been a lot of things that change but for the most part, where I go, my baby goes. My husband has an awesome schedule so we get to be together and go on trips to see family and friends each month. the biggest change is that it’s not all about me anymore, I wake up and I immediately think about my baby when he will wake up, what will he have for breakfast, what do I need for him today and not me.

How often are you riding these days? Are you more selective about when and where?
So I only ride when I do filming and work trips! I don’t have a dirt bike anymore and I get all my riding time in on jobs which actually works out great!

You’re a co-founder and designer or an active and swimwear line called Salty Honey. What inspired you to start a line and what sets it apart from the rest of the sportswear out there? Do you see a baby line in the future?
So I was inspired to start it because I’m all for my fellow woman and I wanted something affordable unique and cute. my girlfriend Taylor has been my clothing inspiration since High School. She used to be apart of a former company and when they parted I knew she would be a wonderful partner and creator of a new women’s fitness and bikini line. So we embarked on this journey together and it took a few years but timing finally became right and we release in August of 2016. Its been going GREAT.
