Katelyn Runck was born in Fargo, North Dakota USA, on 20 July 1991 – her zodiac sign is Cancer and she holds American nationality. She is a fitness model and a social media personality, best known through her Instagram account.
Early life and education
Katelyn was raised alongside her three siblings in Fargo by their father who is a car mechanic, and their mother who is teaching at a local high school. Katelyn became interested in modelling at a very early age, and participated several sports while attending elementary school, mostly because she believed this would help her sculpt her body and look good.
After enrolling at the same high school where her mother teaches, she began playing soccer and running track, while also working on her acting and dancing skills at the school’s drama club.
Katelyn was motivated by her friends and teachers to pursue a career in modelling, and upon matriculation, she didn’t immediately enroll at college but decided to become a fitness model first, and later obtained her American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certificate of Non-Public Education and Vitamins. She eventually enrolled at Rocky Mountain Laser College, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree, and then studied at Laser Institute, American Institute of Intradermal Cosmetic, and Hollywood Airbrush Academy.
Katelyn launched her career in 2009, when she was noticed by a modelling scout and started working with the Elite Model Management on the catwalks in Chicago. She started spending more time at the gym, lifting weights, and attending National Physique Committee bodybuilding competitions, while she also competed in the World Beauty Fitness.
She gained recognition in November 2017 when she competed in the World Beauty Fitness and Fashion (WBFF) Bodybuilding Championship in Miami, Florida, winning it and obtaining her Pro Card.
She then became a certified yoga instructor, and also obtained her Medical Aesthetic license.
Katelyn forced herself so much that she eventually developed an eating disorder, which put her health at risk. After being persuaded by her friends and family, she agreed to spend some time in hospital, but after she was released, she didn’t stick with the deal she made with her doctor, and had to be hospitalized once again. After realizing how severe the situation was, she started taking better care of her health.

Katelyn is also a social media star as she has gathered over 2.2 million followers on her Instagram account, and has uploaded around 630 pictures mostly taken during her photoshoots and her workout sessions at the gym.
Workout plan and nutrition
Katelyn has created her own mix of exercises which she believes works on her body the best, while she occasionally changes her workout plan if she senses that her body needs it. She believes cardio to be the most important aspect, and she usually does her exercises in four sets of between eight and 12 reps.
When getting ready for a competition or a photoshoot, she will mostly focus on cardio and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), and after it passes she will wait a week or two without doing any cardio, but will balance it with working out with heavier weights.
She is following a strict diet, meaning no fast food nor sugar but will allow herself one cheat meal a week, mostly eating pizza and sweets for it. She is focused on having a high intake of protein from wholesome foods, including coconut oil, avocados and nut butter among others. She has six to eight meals per day, and is careful about her intake of calories unless she has no competitions nor photoshoots happening soon.
