"Cathy Priest, wife of amazing bodybuilder Lee Priest, will be competing in 2004 for the first time as an IFBB Pro Figure athlete. She has decided to leave the sport of female bodybuilding as a result of all the negativity and stereotypes now associated with the sport and further her career as a Pro Figure competitor. She will definitely be missed on the IFBB stage, as she is one of the premier female bodybuilders in the world. However, her decision will be great for the IFBB Pro Figure division.
So far her training is going very well. She stopped training with heavy weights several months ago in order to change her physique. Her body is having great recall and she is progressing very well. Cathy says she is training hard and plans to come in great shape as the "New" Cathy Priest."
