Karly Woodle

Karly Woodle has been active her whole life. But she never really paid much attention to her diet, and new nothing about nutrition. In fact, for a number of years, she battled with several eating disorders. She moved from North Carolina to Arizona, and decided to really get healthy. She quickly got interested in figure competitions, and her life was changed forever.

Karly has been a fitness model for several years now. She is 5’4″ tall, weighs about 123 lbs, and measures 33B-24-29. She obviously has some great genetics, with very tight abs and thin skin. Her arms and shoulders always look great. As her measurements show, Karly has a tiny waist and not much in the way of hips. Her legs are muscular, but are probably her only weak point from a competitive standpoint. Her contest history: more Karly Woodle

Tiffany Ryan

Tiffany Ryan grew up poor in a single-parent home in a fairly small town in Arkansas. Her mother was a big influence in her life, and taught her a lot about a strong work ethic. Tiffany juggled several jobs and raised a daughter while going to college part-time to earn a degree in Education. It took her seven years – that’s a lot of determination.

She only taught 3rd grade for a short while before she realized she wanted to do something else with her life. She became a certified personal trainer, and before long began competing in figure competitions. She believes if she can do it, anybody can, and her story is a big inspiration to many ladies out there. more Tiffany Ryan

Nicoleta Chiorean

As a former Ms. Figure Ireland, Nicoleta Chiorean has the looks and the body to earn a few trophies. She grew up in Romania, and participated in basketball and tennis. Her husband was always into bodybuilding and enjoyed watching fitness competitions. After he took Nicoleta to one in 2005, she became interested and started training. She won the NAABA Ms Ireland in 2006 after training for only 12 months. She also placed 8th at the Ms Universe that year.

Nicoleta is an expert in nutrition, and has gone to school to study that topic, as well as sports psychology and kinesiology. She loves working with people of all different capabilities as a personal trainer.

She is 5’3″ tall. Her weight varies between 125 lbs off-season, to 105 lbs (contest weight). more Nicoleta

New England Patriots Cheerleaders

Apparently, we were so sure the New England Patriots were going to win the Super Bowl, that we put together a montage of their famous cheerleaders. Ha-ha, the joke is on us. But in thinking about it, we have decided most of you really don’t necessarily care who the cheerleaders play for, you’re just ready to see some cute gals with pom-pom’s showing us what an active life can do for a body.

It’s important to note than some industry insiders consider the Patriots to have the best cheerleading squad in the NFL. They have been to Afghanistan, Kyrgzstan, and Qatar to involve themselves in humanitarian assistance projects and perform for troops to increase moral. I doubt there are few things a weary troop would rather see than a bouncy, smiling cheerleader. Probably a very effective morale booster, even if it’s also a significant distraction. more Patriots Cheerleaders

Alea Suarez

The Europa Super Show in 2011 was a gigantic event, one of if not the largest NPC event ever. Alea Suarez managed to place 6th in the figure competition. (Heather Dees was the 4th place winner.) It has been a long evolution for Alea.

She is a certified personal trainer, but that just demonstrates her roots. She started out as an aerobics instructor, and eventually – after having three kids – she began competing in bikini in 2009. She ended up winning the 2009 NPC Texas State Bikini Championships. She then transitioned into figure competitions, and earned her Pro card.

Alea was born in San Diego California, but now lives in Texas. She has a very diverse ethnic background that includes Cherokee and Apache Indian, German, French, English, and Mexican. She says her jump from bikini to figure involved a much more detailed and careful approach to her training, diet, and supplementation. Speaking of which, she recently inked a deal with a supplement company called Fahrenheit Nutrition. They say they signed her more for her off-stage personality and role-model potential than for her winning weighs and stunning looks. more Alea

Christina Halkiopoulos

Introducing the exotic wonder of Ms. Christina Halkiopoulos. She was born in Grece, but she moved to South Australia at a young age. She has been modeling almost a decade. Magazines seem to be her medium of choice, considering she’s been in FHM, Ironman, Zoo, Muscleman, and even Playboy. Christina is 31 years old, but obviously looks much younger. She is 5’2″ tall, weighs 100 lbs, and her measurements are 34DD-22-33. That 22″ waist pretty much puts her in the 1% of every fitness model out there. She says she’s always been athletic, and she loves staying fit because it gives her so much energy and confidence. She does very little cardio work, unless she’s dieting down for some kind of show or competition. Instead, she spends 90% of her time in the gym lifting weights and working to put on muscle. She is obviously blessed with a fast metabolism. That’s lucky, since she has a weakness for more Christina

Vanessa Rahn

Vanessa Rahn is a beautiful and feminine gal who manages to carry a lot of muscle. Considering she has only been training for about four years, her physique is really impressive. Vanessa is 26 years old. She stands 5’5″ tall, competes at about 132 lbs, and has a fairly dark complexion. Vanessa tends to compete in bikini competitions, but looking at the size of her arms and the sweep of her quads, it’s obvious why she does fitness or figure shows as well.

Vanessa enjoys interviewing contestants of NPC shows. She has that outgoing, gregarious personality that seems to make the people she interviews feel at ease and open up about how they are feeling about their win, what their diet, exercise, and contest prep program was like, and what they intend to do in the future.

Here she is interviewing the Men’s Masters Overall Winner of the 2011 NPC New Jersey State Bodybuilding Championships. His name is Scott Rauseo. more Vanessa Rahn
