Kym "Nonstop" Perfetto, star of Bodybuilding.com's new program Home Body, talks about her past in reality TV and her present as a fitness star and bike racer. General silliness, off-color humor, and kale-massage jokes abound. Highlights: - How living a fit, athletic life prepared her for the rigors of The Amazing Race. - The lessons she still carries from her time in Reality TV - How being a (temporary) fitness model compares to bike racing or globe-racing. Spoiler: It's just as hard, but in a different way. - How she takes her training experiences and blends them together to fit her style - On making home-based fitness and working from home function: "It's always about scheduling, and sticking to your schedule, the same way you would when someone else is expecting you. You have to be expecting yourself and show up for yourself." - On the limits of sport-specific training: "When things start to fall apart and you have any kind of back pain or neck pain or shoulder pain or you tear something, that's when you realize you've really been neglecting everything else. Your body will always tell you." - Her experiences with 8-week and 12-week programs, and what made the difference - Her love affair with bands - "I wasn't clean-cut enough for the fitness model side of things, and then I wasn't rough around the edges enough for [bike racers], but I just found my own little niche and I feel like that corner of the fitness world has definitely grown since then."
