After giving birth to her second child, Cara Christensen had a problem. She had gained 60 lbs during the pregnancy, and had to immediately begin losing weight. She enlisted the help of a personal trainer, drastically changed her eating habits, and began training in earnest. Her plan was to enter a fitness competition only seven months after she gave birth.
Cara loves the fashion industry, and has been associated with the modeling lifestyle for years. She does some modeling, some makeup and hairstyling, and is a pretty good dancer (tap, jazz, and ballet). She was born in Virginia, but now lives in North Carolina. This 31 year old mother of two is 5’7″ tall and weighs about 115 lbs. This is another gal who has been athletic all her life. In addition to the dancing, she has played volleyball, basketball, softball, track and field, and in-line skating. more Cara Christensen
Originally from Finland, 31 year old Noora Kuusivuori is now residing in Colorado. Growing up, she played baseball and was a swimmer. She was talented, ending up at the world championship level. She was also involved in volleyball, track and field, and jazz danzing. She started weight training at the age of 14 as a part of a program to improve her athletic performance.
Noora won the tall class at the 2010 Colorado State Figure Championships. She says she loves training, and her favorite body part is her glutes. Several guys would agree with her I’m sure. She is 5’10” tall and weighs around 145 lbs. She’s no waif, this gal is strong. She’s been known to pound out 5 reps with 85 lbs when doing biceps curls. She once amazed other swimmers by doing several sets of 10 reps for 225 lb squats. more Noora Kuusivouri
We took a look at Brittany Beede a couple of years ago- back in 2010 in fact. Yes, she is the WWE girl who was trained by MMA giant Brock Lesnar. What a crazy body this beauty has. She is 5’3 and about 115 lbs soaking wet, so she is fairly petite. But as you can see in this video, she has curves in all the right places. She has an impossibly skinny waist. Ladies do not get tiny waists like that by yo-yo dieting, and only staying in shape for parts of the year for contests. This gal has been rocking the hardbody for years now, and her complete devotion and discipline to her diet and training regiment are both notorious and very evident.

When Amber Day flashes those pearly whites, you realize she has not only spent some time sculpting her body, she also spends some time on those teeth. After all, Amber graduated from college with a degree in dental hygiene. Amber is 27, and she is very much a very mainstream fitness model. She is a mother, works as a personal trainer, she competes at the national level in bikini, and she does some writing.
Amber is 5’5″ tall and weighs about 116 lbs. There for a year or two, she was the cover model and spokesmodel for Hard Rock Cafe. She says she stays so busy, that it’s hard to balance time between fitness, competing, being a mom, and actually earning an income. Her favorite fitness athletes more Amber Day
We took a look at Samantha Kelly back in 2008, so clearly it’s time to revisit the subject! Samantha is an easy girl to profile, since she’s always out there promoting herself, contributing new photos and videos, and staying in great shape. She is 31 years old, and currently lives in Los Angeles California.
She’s been in more than a few magazines and books, including:

Hailing from Maryland, Eric Cruikshank grew up around DC and is a popular fitness model in the northeast. She learned how to walk on her hands when she was four years old, and quite a bit of gymnastics training ensued. She was very competitive until she hurt her knee. At that point, she relegated herself to cheerleading all through high school. Like a lot of the gals we see here on FBB, Erica was always athletic, and fitness seems to come easily for her.
Although she mixes it up, she tends to train one body part per day, eat plenty of protein, and keep cheating to a minimum. She says she loves M&M’s! Unlike lots of figure competitors, Erica gets all her protein from food, she does not supplement. Her favorite fitness stars: Ava Cowan, Tanji Johnson, and Nicole Wilkins. more Erica Cruikshank
Kitchie Laurico was on the scene 15 years ago, but has since dropped into oblivion. She posed in Playboy at one point, and was the playboy equivalent of a fitness goddess. She was on a number of bodybuilding magazine covers, and then showed up at a few conventions and car shows before she retired or disappeared.
She is 5’3″ tall, and usually weighs about 105 lbs. more Kitchie Laurico
Okay, well it has taken us long enough… sorry for the delay. Better later than never, right? Here are four brief videos of goddess Catherine Holland.
In this video clip, Catherine Holland is topless and has a red scarf hiding her chest. She turns this way and that, posing in front of a mirror. She flips her hair around, in the process showing off those muscular arms and well-defined shoulders. Catherine is known for doing risque stuff on her website, so you can imagine what this full-length video looks like! more Catherine Holland videos
Heather Dees recently won 4th place in the Europa Super Show. She was born in 1983 and lives in Salt Lake City UT.
Heather was athletic and active as a kid, but nothing out of the ordinary. None of the sports she tried really struck a cord until she found figure competitions. She met a trainer when she was 24 who helped her turn into the fine physical specimen she is today. She was so appreciative, she ended up marrying him! You may recognize his name – Justin Dees. He is a competitive bodybuilder.
Heather says she loves lifting heavy weights, and her favorite part about competing is when she is shaping up for the countdown and she’s able to watch her body lean up and transform. She is known for having some thick, powerful looking arms, but her body is well balanced and very feminine. Obviously, she doesn’t cheat very often, but when she days, she say she loves dark chocolate. She does quite a bit of fitness modeling, which keeps her busy and also requires her to stay in good shape. more Heather Dees
