Deborah Sarah Baker’s journey has been nothing short of inspiring, evolving from a successful fashion model to a celebrated bodybuilding champion and coach. Her unwavering commitment to health and fitness has profoundly impacted her life and those in her circle, a realization that truly took root in 2013.
During her teens, Deborah Sarah Baker developed unhealthy habits like under-eating and excessive exercise to conform to the fashion model ideal.
“As a teenager, I adopted very unhealthy habits and embraced the stereotypes of undereating and exercising to achieve a certain “look” to please others and achieve my ‘goal’ of being a fashion model. I realized after roughly 5 years of being in the industry that I was not happy and ditched the modeling scene for good,” wrote Deborah Sarah Baker on her website, DBFitness.
She added: “I have under-eaten and been excessively underweight without knowing the damage I was doing, at that time I didn’t have the knowledge and understanding within training and nutrition that I now possess. I did not have a coach or someone guiding me through to ensure I was taking the correct steps. Ultimately, I was going in blind.”
In 2017, she had breast augmentation surgery for self-esteem reasons.
After her successful surgery, she chose to engage in low-impact exercises and focus on cardiovascular fitness. Throughout her recovery process, she remained committed to providing consistent updates on her journey, including her triumphant return to her training routine.
Today, she stands at 5’6″ with a well-defined, muscular physique, and she has transitioned into the world of competitive bodybuilding. She has competed 13 times, achieving the title of Women’s Physique Overall Champion in both 2021 and 2022.
Deborah Sarah Baker not only secured the Women’s Physique Overall Champion title but also clinched the Finland Pro Qualifier in 2022.
Sarah has wholeheartedly committed herself to assisting individuals in reaching their fitness aspirations. Holding a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Sport and Health Science from Truro and Penwith College, as well as an FdSC in Exercise, Health, and Fitness, she has garnered extensive knowledge in the field.
Over time, she has coached numerous clients, imparting the essential principles of training and nutrition, sparing them the ordeal of navigating through a sea of bewildering books and magazines.
