Kathi Sottosanti is a 52-year-old mother of five, competitive Powerlifter, co-owner of the motivational website Iron Beauty and a Health and Wellness Coach. Although dedicated to many forms of physical fitness through the years, Kathi began serious powerlifting training at the age of 50. Placing second in her first benchpress competition in her weight class, the experience taught her the importance of training her mindset to overcome fear. At her first WNPF (World Natural Powerlifting Federation) competition she broke her personal deadlift record of 295 with a 305. Kathi currently holds the New Jersey State and national record for all 3 lifts – squat, bench and deadlift – in the 148 weight class within the age group 50-54. She also holds the Novice record for Deadlift in the same categories. She qualified and plans on competing in the WNPF’s November 2016 event.
