IFBB Bikini Pro Brittany Ann has been an athlete for most of her life. Growing up, she was involved in dance, gymnastics, karate, ballet, cheerleading… you name it, she did it. But during her teen years, Brittany lost interest in sports due to her physical insecurities, saying “my skinny body and extra bones (non-cancerous tumors) that protruded out made me feel insecure. My insecurities eventually kept me from participating in sports simply because I didn’t want to wear shorts.”
Brittany Ann underwent surgery in college, and it was then that her passion for fitness and her self-love journey was born. Numerous friends suggested that Brittany enter bikini competitions, but the thought of walking in front of hundreds of strangers scared her.
In 2018 she finally decided to compete, and immediately fell in love. “Competing gave me goals to work towards and strengthened my confidence in my own body.”
In 2019 Brittany Ann competed once more, and won the entire show. That moment gave her the final push she needed to fully commit to her dreams, and she decided to leave her teaching career to pursue fitness full-time. “It was the best thing I could have done! While things have not always been perfect, I wouldn’t change this experience for anything. I’ve gained so much knowledge about myself, and my goal is to always give back to others and help them in their life's journey. I’m still teaching in a sense, and I’m excited to see where this road leads me.”

BRIAN 'BOOM' KELLEHER
What are your credentials?
I have completed 32 pro fights—11 of them being with the UFC now. I was the ring of combat bantamweight champion and the World Cup of MMA champion. I’ve won 4 performance / fight of the night bonuses with the UFC as well.
How did you get started in MMA?
Originally, I was a big fan of the sport. I was always an athlete and this MMA gym opened up the next town over and it was perfect timing as I was fantasizing about getting into the sport.
I joined that gym and ended up getting my first fight after two months of training. After I won by TKO, I was hooked. Soon afterwards, I dedicated my time to getting better and pursuing MMA as a professional.
After moving to Ithaca, I lived in the gym for a year and a half, training hard with a pro team to try to make my dream happen to get into the UFC eventually.
How do you stay motivated during tough times?
I stay motivated by keeping focused and staying in my routine. I try my best to not let outside factors that I cannot control affect me. Instead, I focus on changing what I can to make me a better athlete and person.
What are some of your personal and fitness goals?
My goal is to be the best MMA fighter I can be, to have a long, healthy career with the UFC, and to eventually help other aspiring fighters get to where they want to go.
I want to figure out some things to do post-fighting like working the desk at ESPN, breaking down fights—and potentially being a commentator for a fight promotion. Also, I’m continuing to build my podcast called the “Boom Breakdown,” where I talk about current events and fight analysis when it comes to MMA and UFC.
