STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Award-winning bodybuilder and author Wendy Ida visited the KCAL9 studios Wednesday to talk about her upcoming charity gala!

This 60-year-old Fitness Warrior and National award-winning Bodybuilder and Figure Champion, Wendy Ida launched her new book, Take Back Your Life in November, 2011 which became an Amazon bestseller within the first week of its release. She is a sought after trainer, speaker and health and fitness expert who has earned her nick name as the “Ab Queen.” Nearly 17 years later, Wendy Ida shares her story how she went from a 180lb overweight fast food junkie to a rock-solid size 4!

In Wendy’s book, Take Back Your Life: My No Nonsense Approach to Health, Fitness and Looking Good Naked, she outlines her 90-day plan for women of any age to feel strong and sexy and guides them to getting the body they want with her program. She creates a “no excuse zone” that effectively neutralizes the most common reasons people avoid eating well and exercising, and shows them how to push through anything from divorce and career changes to overcoming peer pressure for burgers and fries. She speaks to the needs of women whose lives have spun out of control due to the physical changes that occur during midlife and the many major life transitions that hinder weight loss and can leave women feeling powerless and unattractive.

Wendy’s “Take Back Your Life Gala Celebration” will be held on July 15 and the SLS hotel in Beverly Hills. It will benefit A Window Between Worlds, a nonprofit organization dedicated to using art to help end domestic violence.
