Info about Rachel Cook is rather hard to find. She placed 5th in the Women’s Open Figure D Class in the 2016 Elite Muscle Classic.
Darlene Mitchell lives in Greensboro North Carolina. She studied sports science and fitness management at North Carolina A&T State University. She also worked there as the assistant volleyball coach and assistant sports information director.
Candice Lewis is one of those figure athletes with an incredible taper. She has great shoulders, and a waist so tiny it’s like she’s a female action hero doll. She is 5’7″ tall and lives in Denver Colorado. She grew up running track and cheerleading, so fitness and activity is nothing new to her. She is 31. She is actually the oldest of ten siblings (10!), so there was a good bit of pressure on her growing up to set a good example for her brothers and sisters. That still reflects in her personality and lifestyle today. She is all about empowering women and showing them how to live with strength and confidence.
She is extremely active in the NPC and IFBB. As you can see, she competes in several contests every year, and has done so since 2011.

Here’s a video of Candice Lewis doing an interview:
I recently ran across Brook Ence (aka Brooke Holladay) and was spellbound by her beauty, her body, and her personality. She’s already a big star in the Cross-Fit world, and I have no doubt she’ll continue on into more mainstream activities.
She is 25 years old, 5’7″ tall, and weighs around 150 lbs. As you can see from this video, it’s solid muscle. She was a National Figure Competitor for awhile, so it’s hard to say how much of that body she built with traditional bodybuilding work, and how much was built with crossfit workouts. She started out by taking 1st place in the Utah Open in 2008. I see she placed 16th in the 2010 NPC USA Nationals. Brooke lives in Santa Cruz, CA and is a full-time coach.
She actually went to college in Utah as a dance major, so clearly she has been active and athletic her whole life. That blonde hair and unique face suggest some European roots. She claims that she always gained muscle easily, even as a young girl. If we could all be that lucky!
Although we discussed her back in 2010, Sasha Brown has been on our minds again lately. This is probably because she did so well in the IFBB Tournament of Champions this year (taking fourth place). After moving to the US in 2005 to focus on her career in fitness modeling and personal training, she found her tomboy upbringing gave her an edge in figure competitions. Maybe it was the well-rounded athletic background, but her stunning and exotic looks don’t hurt either. She got started in fitness when she saw pictures of Monica Brant in a magazine, and was inspired to be better than the average lady. For whatever reason (and there’s certainly no excuse for it), Sash grew up continually being told and feeling like she was not good enough. Continue reading “Sasha Brown”
It’s hard to say enough or to get enough of Jamey Peters. Moving from women’s bodybuilding to women’s figure, the distinction is a tough one. Figure was really created to capture the feminine muscularity that some say women’s bodybuilder’s lack as they bulk up and become more vascular. Jamey really epitomizes the women’s figure champion bloodline.
Jamey is able to present a ripped, muscular physique, while striking just the right balance between size, muscularity, and femininity. She is 27 years old, stands 5’4″ tall, and weighs around 128 lbs in the off-season. Jamey is from Washington state. She was into powerlifting for awhile before she started competing in figure, so it’s hard to believe her long lean, feminine muscles.
Tanji Johnson has historically helped Jamey prep for contests, and the results seem to speak for themselves. She won her class as well as the overall title in the 2011 NPC Northwestern Championships. She then placed 3rd in the NPC Emerald Cup, and took an incredible 1st place in the 2012 NPC Los Angeles Championships.
With the athletic background, the know-how to get the training and the diet just right, the genetics that help propel her to greatness, and the support she has from people who are in the know, we are expecting many great things out of Jamey Peters!
Jill Rudison grew up in Miami Florida. She was always athletic as a kid, playing softball, participating in gymnastics, and even dance classes. She began lifting weights as a part of a high school class. She began to get more serious about her diet and taking care of her body, which accelerated the results she got from her training.
She spends a lot of time coaching and training others in the fitness lifestyle. She says most people just want to take a pill and look great, they are very reluctant to invest the kind of time and effort into training and diet that it takes to see incredible results like hers.
Although there have been a few absences – one that spans almost four years, Jill has competed in tons of shows. She has an outstanding record that goes to show how hard she works in the on and the off-season, and how consistently she makes improvements.

Carla Sizemore really exemplifies some of the great attitudes and constructive efforts in women’s fitness. Carla is 5’4″ tall and weighs about 114 lbs. Her measurements are 34B-24-33. She grew up in Indiana, but currently lives with her son in Texas.
Carla has been active and striving for fitness as far back as she can remember. She didn’t know much about women’s figure competitions until she was in her 30’s. She has always placed a lot of emphasis on nutrition and attitude.
Carla’s competitions started in 2009. Her track record so far:
2009 NPC Europa – 8th
2010 NPC National Bodybuilding, Figure & Bikini Championships – 10th
2010 NPC Junior USA Championships – 2nd
2010 NPC Europa Super Show – 1st

With a name like Prudence Moe, we don’t have to worry about forgetting her. But just in case, there’s that amazing body and angelic face! Prudence is petite. She is 4’11” tall and weighs about 110 lbs. She lives in Las Vegas Nevada, but she was born in Burma and moved to the United States when she was a little child. She is 28 years old.
She competed once upon a time in Figure, but I haven’t seen her post any results in many years. She took 12th place in the 2008 NPC USA Bodybuilding and Figure Championship. And she placed 4th that same year in the Junior Nationals.
One of the things she has definitely done right in her career, Prudence has managed to get hooked up numerous times with professional photographers. more Prudence Moe
Carla Jones got a late start into the world of fitness competitions. Although she was a group exercise instructor for fifteen years, it wasn’t until about six years ago she started competing as a bodybuilder, then moved into fitness competitions. She was competing in a bikini contest in Florida when she was approached by a couple of photographers. It wasn’t long before she was on the cover of Fitness and Physique Magazine, and it was time to start seriously training!
Carla is 36 years old. She is 5’3″ tall, and weighs about 125 lbs. She says the easiest way to break into fitness modeling is just to compete. The competitions are usually jammed with photographers and other people from the industry not only trying to sell their brand and their product, but also find spokeswomen for their companies. more Carla Jones
