Temecula, CA. Coach Kim Oddo of Body By O is proud to announce the signing of IFBB Bikini Pro Sarah Gayden. She will be the company’s first fully endorsed athlete with training and the full line of supplements. Born in Venezuela, the beautiful Latina now calls California home. As a chef, she has a passion for healthy cooking which resonates with her family and husband IFBB Pro Xavisus Gayden. Her love for the culinary arts helps both of them in the off-season as well as competition season.
“Many of you don’t know, but this is my first ever athlete sponsorship. I couldn’t help but feel SO honored and blessed to take the lead by being the first Body By O sponsored athlete! I want to thank Kim for believing in me and the many things I’m capable of achieving!” said Gayden.
Kim Oddo affectionately known as “Kimbo” to his athletes, has been coaching for over 25 years. He is one of top trainers and nutritionists in the world of competitive bodybuilding, fitness, figure and bikini. Over the years he has chalked up hundreds of NPC amateur and IFBB professional wins as well as five Olympia titles including back to back titles with 2X reigning Olympia Bikini Champion Angelica Teixeira. Kim said, “In 2019 I wanted to grow the Body By O brand. When I thought of adding our first fully endorsed athlete, Sarah was the first person that came to mind. We’ve been working together for over 6 years and with her being local, it provides us with an incredible opportunity to train together each week as well as get some amazing training, nutrition and supplementation content.”
Sarah continued, “Kim has made of me a better competitor, a better teammate, a better athlete, a better role model, which have all had a direct impact in my life outside of the industry as a mom, a wife and professionally in my career as well! Thank you Kim for mentoring me and leading the way. I’m excited for a very successful season starting in just about 3 weeks at the Muscle Contest Legends Pro in Las Vegas!
Sarah recently earned an invitation to the Sheru Classic in Medellin this February 17th at Expo Fitness Colombia. Follow the bi-lingual competitor on Instagram as she trains with Kimbo at his private facility each week.
