4 Gorgeous Crossfitters [check these ladies out!]

Danielle Brandon
Danielle is a Crossfit Games athlete as well as a coach. Her Instagram is
She currently has around 72k followers. It sounds like she attended college on a scholarship for pole vaulting. She is an incredible athlete. Maybe some of that is genetics – her parents were Olympians. She finished 20th in the 2020 Crossfit Games, and took 11th place in 2019. She is 24 years old, and stunningly gorgeous. This girl could model. And her body looks like it belongs to a greek goddess.

Alexis Raptis
Alexis is another young xfit competitor. She is 21 years old, 5’5″ tall, and weighs around 138 lbs. She lives in the Salt Lake City area. She was ranked 104th in the US this year. She has 14k followers on her instagram channel. She got into Crossfit a few years ago after suffering some injuries in gymnastics. She was also dealing with some back problems a few years ago, but hopefully she can stay healthy and competitive.

Steph Chung
Stephanie is a very popular Crossfitter who has steadily improved her ranking over the years. At 28 years old, she has gone from 130th a few years ago to 46th this year. She is 5’5″ and weighs around 150 lbs. She’s built up quite a following on instagram, with 166k fans:
Steph’s father is Taiwanese, and her parents enrolled her at an early age in gymnastics to help use up some of her excess energy. Like many girls in gymnastics, she suffered some injuries. This gal has a lot of personality, and she is driven to enjoy herself while competing.

Zummer Pagan
Zummer is a tiny little stick of dynamite. She weighs around 135 lbs, and stands only 5′ tall. She is 26 years old. I couldn’t find any recent competition stats, and her US/worldwide rank isn’t really relevant for that reason. She is from Puerto Rico. She has around 60k fans on her instagram account
She has an addictive smile!

5 New Fitness Models for You to Check Out

These fitness models/athletes may not be “new” as in new to the scene. Some of them have been around for years or even decades. But they may be new to you. So check them out and let me know what you think!

1) Tiffany Rodee is a mom of 3, a teacher, and she competes. I see that she won 1st place in the Class C 2019 NPC Southeast Texas Championships. Her Instagram account is https://www.instagram.com/tiffernhtown/ and she currently has 6,007 followers.

2) Dana Shemesh is an IFBB Pro. She placed 8th in the 2019 IFBB St. Louis Pro Women’s Physique category. She has been a personal trainer for over fifteen years. Her Instagram account is https://www.instagram.com/dana.shemesh.ifbb.pro/?hl=en, and she has 58k followers. She is from Israel.

3) Jessica Gubenschek is a figure competitor, online fitness coach, and fitness model. Her InstaGram is https://www.instagram.com/fit.by.jg/ and she looks to have around 17,800 followers right now. She lives in Canada, stands 5’8″ tall, and typically weighs around 175 lbs in the off-season or around 150 lbs when competing. She won 3rd place in H Class of the 2019 NPC North America Championships Figure contest.

4) Katie Cork is a crossfit athlete and as far as I can tell she does not compete in figure or fitness contests. Her InstaGram is https://www.instagram.com/katiecork/ and she is quite popular with 166k followers. She lives in the United Kingdom, and is a hairdresser for her “day job”.

5) Laura Marie Masse graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in interior architecture. She is a fitness model, and lately has began competing in the NPC bikini division. Laura is really popular on Instagram. Her account is https://www.instagram.com/lauramariemasse/, and she has 316k followers. She is getting ready to turn 32 years old. She always seems to be in tip-top shape.

Yuan Herong

It’s pretty rare that I cover a Chinese fitness model or bodybuilder. It doesn’t seem like it is a wildly popular pastime in China, and I supposed I’m just not exposed to much of the mainland China culture. But today we have an exception!

Yuan Herong works as a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine. She is thirty years old, and was recently married. Although she dreamed of being a Kung Fu fighter when she was a kid, her parents, who are in the medical industry, forced her to follow medicine as a career. Darn parents!

Yuan has a tiny waist, and surprisingly broad shoulders. her quads are well-developed, and as you can see her abs are no joke.

She has competed at various times, and in fact I read some news stories that she was dieting for a bodybuilding competition when the Covid-19 virus took root in China. But I am not able to find any competition history to list for her.

Yuan has 400k followers on her Instagram account

Vivi Winkler Brazilian Fitness Model

Vivi Winkler is a Brazilian fitness model.

She was born in 1992. At the age of 21, she considered herself flabby, out of shape, and unhealthy. She started a fitness journey that won her many fans.

She is 5’7″ tall, and typically weighs between 115-125 lbs. Her Instagram page (you can find a link in our list here) has 2.2 million fans, so you could certainly call her a social media influencer.

She definitely seems to be a dramatic workout partner. Many of the videos I’ve seen of her feature her in apparent agony as she works her muscles. Case in point:

In her “defense”, she has some well-developed legs, and it’s not easy to build quads like that. I’m glad she’s willing to put that kind of effort into her workouts!

I couldn’t really find much in the way of competition history for Vivi. I see some documentation that she won second place in the Liga Carioca Bodybuilding Championships, but couldn’t really confirm that. Maybe competition isn’t really her thing.

CarrieJune Anne Ace

As with many of the ladies we profile here on FitBabesBlog, CarrieJune Anne grew up heavily involved in athletics. Track and Field, gymnastics, and cheerleading were all a big part of her life.

Her birthdate is February 7th, 1996. She was born in New Jersey. It wasn’t until she was a sophomore in high school that she started working out with weights at home. It wasn’t long before she joined a gym, and started dedicating even more time to working out.

She is a popular trainer, and is followed by 1.2 million people on her Instragram page. Her claim to fame is probably her tiny waist and her giant quads. She claims that she made huge gains once she dialed in her training and nutrition specific for her body.

She tends to carb cycle, and as you can imagine she is very careful with her diet, nutrition, and calorie intake.

Her name is pretty unique, and she’s actually married to a guy named Steve Ace.

She is 5’4″ tall, and her weight fluctuates between 125-135 lbs.

She started her own fitness apparel brand, and presumably spends much of her time (when she’s not working out) running her business and building her brand.

Her abs are basically legendary, and her tiny waist combined with her massive glutes and quads are amazing:

Here’s a look at her glutes. I can’t imagine how much time she has put into sculpting them:

CarrieJune’s flexibility is a byproduct of the time she spent in gymnastics and cheerleading as a kid:

Here’s a shot of CarrieJune wearing a thong bikini:

And then finally, how about a huge video of her!

Her thick musculature somewhat reminds me of Cindy Landolt‘s.

Misc Updates

A number of you have contacted me letting me know that image links in posts from several years ago are broken. That’s been the case for awhile, and it’s very annoying and time consuming to repair.

I spent some time updating posts, fixing images etc.

I fixed and updated the Penny Price post.

I also fixed the images in the Rachel McLish post.

All of the January 2013 posts have been repaired.

Amanda Barnhart Crossfit Athlete

Amanda Barnhart white shortsAmanada Barnhart has been in Crossfit for a few years now. I see competitive results for her going back to 2014.

Her profiles list her as 5’7″ tall and 151 lbs. She is currently 26 years old. She works as a physical therapist.

She has around 21k followers on her Instagram account these days:

Amanda Barnhart muscular armsShe has what may be the world’s crappiest youtube channel, and I will only link to it reluctantly:

Amanda has been athletic all her life. As a child, she practiced gymnastics. In high school, she swam, played volleyball, and ran track. When she went to college, she swam for a D1 school.

Amanda Barnhart celebratingWhen preparing for a contest, Amanda does quite a bit of volume, which is not unusual for Crossfit athletes who oftentimes compete for the title “fittest on earth”. She loves heavy cleans. Her maxes are listed as:
squat 315 lb
clean and jerk 230 lb
deadlift 390 lb
snatch 195 lb

Amanda Barnhart absI don’t know many guys who can deadlift 400 lbs, much less women. Amanda is definitely strong. At such a young age, she had incredible potential if she can minimize her injuries.

Unfortunately, with Crossfit, it really is “mimimize”. It’s a sport notorious for injuries. It’s less a question of if you’re going to get injured, and more about when. I guess you can say that for any top-level sport and athlete.

sexy Amanda BarnhartLately I’ve heard that Amanda has been training with some of the sport’s greatest, including Brooke Wells, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, Katrin Davidsdottir, and Ehea Schuerch. I would think that will pay positive dividends in her performance.

Amanda was married a couple of years ago to Wesley Barnhart. I think they both currently live in the Ohio area.

Heidi Powell

Heidi Powell selfieHeidi Powell recently placed 5th in the bikini division of the 2018 IFBB Dennis James Pro. I think it’s about time we do an in-depth profile of her here on FBB!

The fact that she currently has 439k followers on her Instagram feed speaks to how popular she has become.

I would definitely classify her as a “celebrity trainer”, not in the sense that she trains celebrities, more like she is a trainer who is a celebrity.

Heidi Powell Bio

She was born in Phoenix Arizona in 1980.

She and her husband Chris Powell began hosting the television show Extreme Weight Loss in 2011. That was really her first launch into fame.

In 2015, she published the book Extreme Transformation: Lifelong Weight Loss in 21 Days.
It has sold thousands of copies, and gets 4-star reviews on Amazon.

Heidi Powell absShe has her own clothing and accessory line that she likes to associate with a positive body image. She uses the tagline “Perfectly Imperfect”.

Heidi has four kids, and her marriage to Chris is her second. She is a certified personal trainer, with both ACE and CrossFit certifications. As of 2018, she is 36 years old.

Contest History

It appears as though Heidi began competing in 2015. She may have started before that, but that’s what shows up when I research her history. She has placed as high as 1st and as low as 17th.
