Lynn Priest    
Hometown: New Milford, Connecticut 

Up Close And Personal

Claim to fame

I'm petite, but I pack a punch.  Meaning that when I set my mind to something I accomplish it and make an impact.  I also have a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Taekwon-Do.

Fun fact about you

I am a fitness model and bikini competitor.

If you have one wish to be granted in 2018, what is it and why?  

It is to assist people by helping them get healthy to save their own lives. Exercise and food is medicine. If we don’t “move” or “push” our bodies or eat unhealthy food, then we are at risk for serious health consequences such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and much more.

Life In Pageants 

When did you start getting involved in pageants?

I got involved in pageants in 2012. I saw it as a way to spread my passion for health and fitness. I love helping people and teaching them how to be strong. You cannot help others if you are not strong enough to help yourself.

Why did you choose the Classic International Woman system?

I chose the CIW system because I want to show the world that age is just a number and that if you can dream it, you can achieve it. It is an honor to represent the Classic International Woman. I use my years of age as a life experience that I can share with the world.

Tell us about your platform or yourself, choose one or both.

My platform is health and fitness. I work for a medical fitness center. To be more specific, I am a Cancer Exercise Specialist. I get assigned patients once they are finished with their treatments, and I create a workout program to get them strong. I also design workouts and hold workshops for Osteoporosis patients. It is important to teach that body movement is crucial to becoming and staying strong. I teach that by exercising you can improve or prevent heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, minimize the discomfort of arthritis, decrease insomnia and depression. I also teach proper nutrition. By eating healthy you can prevent diabetes, improve cholesterol levels and reduce body fat.

Passion or interest outside of pageantry

My passion outside of pageantry is being a fitness model and bikini competitor. I’ve done runway and print. I love exercising and competing on stage. I compete against women 20 years younger than I am. I’m showing the world that this is possible.

Beauty And Women Empowerment

Define beauty

Beauty is how you make someone else feel. If you can build someone’s self-esteem, teach them how to be strong and stand up for themselves, make them be happy and smile, then you’ve achieved beauty.

Define women empowerment

Women empowerment is having a dream, staying on your path to achieve that dream, even if you get opposing opinions. Stand strong and hold your ground. Then once you’ve done that you use your achievements to make an impact on someone else.
