Early life and education

She was born Kathy Huddy in Miami, Florida, but her family relocated to the area of Atlantic City, New Jersey, where she was raised. She didn’t compete in sports or athletics; she attended the Sonnenfeld School of Modeling, and competed in beauty contests. In 1970 she was one of the local beauty queens who appeared in the Miss America Pageant Parade.

Bodybuilding career

Kathy Segal Katey Sagal Official Website

Kathy, having little interest in sports, got an unusually late start for a bodybuilder; she started training in her late 20’s. Her commitment from the outset of her training was improved health and fitness; she was what was referred to in the late 80's as a "natural bodybuilder" (drug and steroid-free).

She won the Ms. South Jersey Fitness contest at the age of 31, in 1983. She followed with a second win of Ms. South Jersey Fitness in 1984. In 1985 and 1986 she competed in several New Jersey contests, always achieving a podium finish.

In early 1987 she was invited to compete in the WABBA Best In The World Championship. The WABBA held the event at the Trump Castle Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. Former Mr. World, Mr. Universe, Mr. Europe Serge Nubret came from France to be the featured guest poser. World renowned fantasy and physique artist Boris Vallejo was also among the invited dignitaries. Upon arriving at the competition she accepted an impromptu invitation from AAU Mr. America Robert "Stonewall" Jackson to compete as his partner in the couples division. Though last minute, they prepared an ad-hoc posing routine, and were judged the 3rd best bodybuilding couple in the world.

In late 1987, at age 35, she won the Ms. International contest, which was generally considered to be the second-most prestigious competition for female bodybuilders (behind only the Ms. Olympia competition).

She is a certified personal trainer with NSCA, AFPA, SFA, AFAA, The Arthritis Foundation and Kaiser Fitness, has managed a number of health clubs and continues to support women and men who are seeking a higher level of fitness.
