A rural Watseka woman is vying for Ms. Health & Fitness and the public can help get here there.
The daughter of Doug and Donna Hahn, Callyn is a 2006 graduate of Donovan High School.
Growing up she and brother Tyler worked on the family farm. They raised cattle. She was on the livestock judging team.
She moved to California four years, where she was a bikini competitor and did body building.
She started body building two years ago, she said. “I’ve always been a gym goer,” she said, though she says she as more of a person who would go to the gym just a couple of days a week.
“Living in California there are so many recreational activities,” she said.
She first started training in the physique style/bikini style conditioning and body shaping. As she progressed, she found a coach who worked with her as she competed. She reached national qualifications and then continued to work out, competing in Sacramento in November, where she placed first in her class.
She will be competing in the National Physique Committee (NPC) competition again this year and hopes to make it to the national competition in November.
Now living back in Illinois, she is working out at The Zone in Watseka, and would appreciate the votes for the Ms Health & Fitness title.
She is also very interested in nutritional.
“You need to fuel your body for success,” she said. Hahn said she finds it very important to educate people on nutrition, which isn’t the same for everyone. “Your body has a scientific card of how you burn carbs and fat,” she said.

Hahn hasn’t forgotten her agriculture roots. She said she will donate a portion to livestock shows and youth development, while using the rest to invest in her self and her health and fitness business. She said she really wants to help people be more fit and reach their own goals.
