Sidney’s Karen McCoy is working toward becoming an international lifestyle guru. The bodybuilding champion and trainer has more than 22,000 Twitter followers and hundreds of Facebook fans who regularly receive her messages. Come January, they can buy her book.

One Rep at a Time is McCoy’s memoir and includes her eight-week body makeover program that buyers access from a password in the book. It links to workout videos, workout cards, plus nutrition and spiritual information.

McCoy tells of her fall from grace after her son was diagnosed with a terminal disease.

Her body, once a pinnacle of health and strength, fell apart. With patience and tenacity, she healed her body and spirit, she says, and began to see her son’s challenges with fresh eyes. She now teaches these lessons through training and lifestyle programs.

One dollar from the sale of every book goes toward the Tristan Graham Children’s Foundation.

One Rep at a Time: An Athlete and Mother Reveals the Secrets to Creating Inner Power and Serenity by Karen McCoy, is published by Agio Publishing House in Victoria.
