Sara Hurrle

Sara Hurrle is definitely your standard “Type A” personality. She is an IFBB Pro, a personal trainer, yoga instructor, and owns her own gym. She grew up in the midwest in a fairly unhappy home. Sports like gymnastics and working out in the gym offered her an escape. She also tried softball, golf, dance, and soccer. But she ultimately fell in love with lifting weights at the tender age of 16.

In college, her activities continued and even increased. She managed the weight room, acted as a group fitness instructor, was the conditioning coach for the hockey team. She competed in several triathlons. Once she graduated, she worked as a corporate wellness instructor.

Sara is 5’5″ tall and weighs 125 lbs. She is 36 years old. Her measurements are more Sara Hurrle

Eryn Strickland

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. She excelled in high school sports, especially lacrosse. She ended up landing a scholarship for her lacrosse to the University of Delaware. A trainer at the university taught her the basics of weight lifting, and she fell in love with it.

She graduated with a degree in nursing, but fell into a state of addiction that almost ruined her life. She was able to claw her way out more Eryn Strickland

Cindy Landolt

Cindy Landolt (real name: Cinderella Landolt) has some of the best abs in the business. Thick, but not unfeminine, vascular, shapely. She spent eleven years training as a gymnast, which have her a very solid foundation for fitness and strength. She got started in weight training because she started squatting, just out of curiosity. She immediately saw changes in the way her legs looked, and she was hooked. Her shoulders and arms are well-developed, her legs are chiseled, it’s really hard to find a weak bodypart on this gal.

Cindy says she is a certified Nordic Walking Instructor. more Cindy Landolt

Kelly Rennie

Kelly Rennie is know for being tough as nails and as pretty as a model. Growing up, she cut her teeth on gymnastics, but moved on to more challenging sports – like Muay Thai kickboxing and rugby. She started doing figure competitions in 2010 after dating a personal trainer and signing up for a bodybuilding coach. She quickly won some sponsorships, and has even started her own fitness and fat loss company.

Kelly says she loves cats and owns several, and would love to ride a Harley motorcycle one day. She won the World Sports Model Agency competition last December, and it’s pretty clear why. Kelly Rennie pics and videos after the jump

Angela Ells-Smith

Angela Ells-Smith was born and raised in Wisconsin. Like many of the ladies featured here, she was very active growing up, and professes to have always loved cheerleading, basketball, and track and field. When Angela went to college, she started playing raquetball to stay fit, and it wasn’t long before she found herself in the gym lifting weights. Soon thereafter (the early 1990’s), she moved to Minneapolis and began competing. I think she is currently living in Oklahoma with her husband and doing personal training as well as teaching group fitness classes. Very long, lean legs. Muscular without a lot of bulk.
