As a Cincinnati ER trauma response nurse, Tracy Heyob is challenged professional everyday. And, as a cancer survivor, she is equally challenged personally everyday. The 5'7", 135 lbs., 47 year old says, "My experiences have taught me to not miss out on anything in life and the importance of keeping up with healthy lifestyles an choices."

Tracy started her health and fitness journey two years ago. "I discovered the joy of lifting and the affects that proper diet has on the body," she explains. "I entered my first show 6 months later and the Fitness Universe Weekend in Miami this earlier this year where I earned my Figure Universe™ Pro card! Through it all, I have made naturally, physically and spiritually gains."

Moving forward, Tracy plans to continue being an active participant in Fitness Universe™ show and will begin personal training, holistic health and nutrition coaching next year.
