Kristi Winger Szudlo
Lipid Specialty Manager
March 2013 KickAss Woman of the Month
WBFF Fitness Model Pro
Kristi Winger Szudlo is a married mother of two wonderful children, ages 7 and 3. Her family is very supportive of both their church and the March of Dimes. Her first born child was born very premature, 15 weeks too early, weighing just 1 pound and 13 ounces at birth. He spent 96 days in the NICU and his first 2 years of life were ones that were filled with prayer. Their second child required 21 weeks of bed rest to avoid the same fate. Her children are now healthy, and they are grateful for their blessings and the March of Dimes past and present research to unravel the medical mysteries behind premature birth and preterm labor.
Kristi has been a fitness competitor since June of 2010. She was blessed to have won her WBFF Pro Card 11/5/2011 at Kevin Topeka’s New England WBFF show and have since competed at the World level competition as a Pro with the WBFF. Prior to becoming a Pro, she won the title of Ms Bikini Carolina Nationals in 8/2010 and she enjoyed many top 3 placings in the Fitness Universe Federation and top placings in the WBFF during her competitions leading up to her pro card.

She has been featured in Natural Muscle Magazine and in multiple prints of Fit and Firm Magazine.
