Katie Miller, bikini competitor, fitness coach, and eating disorder surviver, has turned her love of fitness into her hobby, her job, and her life’s calling. Read on to learn more about her struggles, her triumphs, and her journey to a happier, healthier life.
Meet Katie Miller, a stunning 26-year-old Fitness and Nutrition Coach and National Physique Committee (NPC) Bikini Division medalist, and you might think she’s got it all. Happily married to husband Duane Kerner, 32, this successful businesswoman holds a B.S. in Exercise Science from Eastern Illinois University, along with certifications from The American College of Sports Medicine and The National Academy of Sports Medicine. Clients sing her praises, gushing that “hiring Katie was the best decision I ever made in my life,” and “she [brought out] a side of dedication and motivation I had never seen in myself.”
But life for this inspirational fitness guru hasn’t always been perfect. In her senior year of high school, Katie struggled with insecurity and says she hated herself. In a misguided attempt to become thinner and thus happier, Katie severely restricted her food intake, developing anorexia and losing a large amount of weight. With the help of professionals, a loving partner, and the discovery of fitness competitions, Katie slowly changed her thinking and her behavior to alter the path of her life. While far from perfect, Katie is far happier and more confident than she’s ever been.
