Tanya Hyde is a lot of things. By that, I mean it’s hard to describe her and tell you who she is and what she does succinctly. As you can see, she is a female bodybuilder and a fitness competitor. She also does quite a bit of fitness modeling, and she happens to be a professional chef. She always enjoyed cooking, so she went to the Culinary Institute of America in New York to obtain an official degree.
Tanya says the hardest part about competing for her is always the diet. She has such a love/hate relationship with food – she’s around it all the time, she is passionate about cooking, but then she has to be so strict and disciplined about what she eats because of her fitness aspirations. more Tanya Hyde
Not unlike Kelly Rennie, Vlatka Dragic started out her athletic endeavors when she took an interest in gymnastics. You tend to get pretty good at something if you spend 20 hours a week for nine years practicing it, which is exactly what Vlatka did.
Although she grew up in Croatia, as a teenager she moved to Australia, where she still lives today. She says she was inspired into the fitness modeling and competition world by the likes of Jamie Eason. more Vlatka Dragic

Everybody knows who Kristal Marshall is, so I’m not sure how we’ve gone this long without listing her here on FBB. Kristal was born in LA in 1983, so she’s 28 years old. She is 5’5″ tall and weighs about 120 lbs. The reason everybody knows her is because she’s been everywhere. She’s most famous as a gal for WWE, but she also competed in the Miss California pageant, and was on The Price is Right. I think she was even in a few music videos.
Kristal is obviously very athletic. She has been known to compete – she placed 2nd in the 2009 NPC Arnold Amateur Championships, and took 1st in the 2009 NPC USA Bodybuilding and Figure Championships. more Kristal Marshall

Eryn Strickland grew up in Maryland with a couple of brothers and a neighborhood of boys. She was athletic and competitive right from the start.
