The journey for Deborah Sarah Baker has been an inspiring one, from her time as a fashion model to becoming a bodybuilding champion and coach. The passion for health and fitness has been a significant part of Sarah’s life, but it wasn’t until 2013 that she realized just how much positive impact being fit would have on her life and the lives of others around her.
During her teen years, Deborah Sarah Baker adopted unhealthy habits including undereating and excessive exercise, all to fit the mold of a fashion model.
“As a teenager, I adopted very unhealthy habits and embraced the stereotypes of undereating and exercising to achieve a certain “look” in order to please others and achieve my ‘goal’ of being a fashion model. I realized after roughly 5 years of being in the industry that I was not happy and ditched the modeling scene for good,” she wrote on her website, DBFitness.
Deborah Sarah Baker, who is bilingual as she speaks both English and Spanish, added, ‘I have under-eaten and been excessively underweight without knowing the damage I was doing, at that time I didn’t have the knowledge and understanding within training and nutrition that I now possess. I did not have a coach or someone guiding me through to ensure I was taking the correct steps. Ultimately, I was going in blind.’
In 2017, Deborah Sarah Baker underwent breast augmentation surgery to address her self-esteem issues.
Following her successful surgery, she opted for low-impact activities and cardiovascular work. Throughout her recovery journey, she didn’t hesitate to share regular updates about her progress, including her eventual return to her training regimen. Now, the beauty who stands 5’6, sporting a muscular frame has finally turned to becoming a competitive bodybuilder, competing 13 times and becoming the Women’s Physique Overall Champion in 2021 and 2022.
Apart from the Women’s Physique Overall Champion title, Deborah Sarah Baker also won the Finland Pro Qualifier in 2022.
Sarah is now fully dedicating her life to helping others achieve their fitness goals. She has a BSC in Applied Sport and Health Science from Truro and Penwith College and an FdSC in Exercise, Health, and Fitness. She has since coached hundreds of clients, teaching them the fundamentals of training and nutrition without sifting through books and magazines to add to the confusion.
“I continue to pursue my dream of turning pro whilst working alongside 100’s of clients from different walks of life, both athletes and lifestyle clients, helping them achieve their dream physique and moreover, feel content and happy with themselves!” she concluded. However, Sarah’s Instagram has over 138K followers, where she shares her journey, workout routines, and progress updates while inspiring others in their fitness pursuits.
Sarah’s Miss DB Fitness Instagram account focuses on her coaching service, providing valuable fitness tips, client transformations, and testimonials. Additionally, the bodybuilding champion, with a bust of 34 and a waist of 25, including hips of 35, has a YouTube channel, with over 1.110K subscribers, where she regularly shares videos on training, nutrition, and her experience as a competitive bodybuilder. Deborah Sarah Baker is no doubt an hourglass figure who is both fit and strong.
