"I believe that they accepted anyone in the athletic field to you know join it. Give it a shot. I really didn't think much of it, and then I won the first round, and then the first round became the top 15, and then the top 15 became the top 10," added Buffy.
We'll growing up Buffy did play a sport. She ran track at Williamsport Area high-school. She is a mother of three and a grandmother of six, and has been a personal trainer and running her business out of EPIC Fitness for the past 5 years.
"Plain and simple you just need to move. You just need to move. I made it my lifestyle hence I train physically all day, but my output isn't the same as what I teach at night," again said Buffy.
Part of the voting process involves donating to Jared Allen's home for Wounded Warriors. Buffy is honored to be part of the fitness element for the magazine but believes the real goal here is helping our veterans.
