f you’ve ever met Amanda Latona Kuclo, best known as the Booty Queen, you’ve realized one thing right away: This girl has fun with life. On set, Kuclo is singing to the music, laughing, and staying relaxed. Joy motivates her to work harder.

“I’ve always been a hard worker,” she says. “I’m not a diva in any way. I picture the outcome and think, ‘Let’s get the shot and have fun with it.’ Because to me, it is a lot of fun. You work hard, you train hard, and having fun on set will come through in the images. I shot my first cover in 2010 for Muscle & Fitness Hers, and since then the magazine has been nothing but supportive.”


You could easily say that Kuclo has always been a natural in the spotlight. Her first most notable obsession that put her onstage was singing. At age 18, she was in a girl band called “Innosense” alongside Britney Spears (just before Spears reached stardom).

Kuclo’s musical career didn’t end up being her bread and butter, but doing her best for an audience has been an enduring ethic. She fell in love with fitness when she was still singing, and it was only a matter of time before she stepped onstage as a competitor. After years of dedicating herself to the weight room, Kuclo (then Latona) earned her IFBB pro card in 2009. For more than a decade, she clinched more than 25 first-place fitness and bikini competition finishes—10 of those IFBB championships. Since then, she keeps expanding her fit-fluence—inspiring others who want to follow a fit, healthy lifestyle—and she became a Team AllMax-sponsored athlete.
