Flex Friday — Melissa & Haniset

•May 17, 2019 • Leave a Comment

We’ve got a bikini in arms tandem this week on Flex Friday with a pair of beauties we captured at the most recent NPC Nationals. On the left is strapping tall class competitor and Miami native Melissa Feijoo; and joining her on the right is striking Haniset Valdes, who claimed a top five finish in her class at the show and looks headed for big things in the division. Hani trained her way back from weight issues and now has one of the top physiques — knockout looks and impressive biceps — on the national level. Check her out in this interview from 2017 when she competed at Southern States.


Flex Friday — Sarah Burke

This week’s Flex Friday spotlight belongs to our newest model, Sarah Burke, an impressive IFBB pro physique competitor from Ontario, Canada. Sarah brings a strong pedigree to the roster in that she is coached by the multi-Olympia, fitness and physique superstar Mindi O’Brien. Can’t go wrong there and Sarah sports a sort of mini-Mindi look in her own right, highlighted by those horseshoe triceps and long, full biceps. She’ll bring all that to the stage and more at her next show, the prestigious Toronto Pro, coming up on June 1. Sarah is also a fitness and Zumba instructor besides being a mom of four.

Flex Friday — Elvera Cooper

It’s an extra-special Flex Friday when you can feature one of our top new models from last year, the radiant figure girl Elvera Cooper, in an all-new encore shoot. After finishing second at North Americans, Elvera came back even stronger at the NPC Nationals — where these pics were taken — and won her class to capture an IFBB pro card. The Pennsylvania resident has a finely tuned physique from years of kickboxing, powerlifting and gymnastics. Combine that with a flawless look and it’s not a stretch to believe success at the pro level could come quickly. Maybe a future Olympia competitor? We wouldn’t bet against her.

Flex Friday — Thea Dougher

One of our latest models, Thea Dougher, is our Flex Friday pick. We caught up with Thea for a debut shoot at the NPC Nationals last year, where she came away with a pro card after winning the B-class. It was the first national-level show for the 5’3, 125-pound new pro, who brings a strikingly full and flawless physique to the party as these pics show. A powerhouse new addition to the IFBB stage.

Flex Friday — Ashley Bader

Ashley Bader claims the spotlight for this week’s Flex Friday in pics from her debut shoot at the NPC Nationals in Miami last season, where she won the physique overall title and a pro card. Ashley started competing in the figure division back in 2015, but eventually switched to the physique ranks. Talk about finding your niche. The Columbus, Georgia native appeared in just two shows — a nationals qualifier and then Nationals — and won them both. We’ll certainly be watching as the former powerlifter tries to keep her streak going as the pro season gets underway. Thanks to Dan Ray for these and many more great pics of this very exciting new star.

Flex Friday — Sonya Istocka

Another photo update of Sonya Istocka means another Flex Friday appearance for the strapping 5-foot-11, 152-pound former volleyball and basketball player. The Akron University graduate combines the kind of girl next door beauty and feminine muscle that you just love to see and it shines through especially in this new set of pics. Sonya is the type of girl that you might see in a supermarket or coffee shop that makes you do a double take when you get a glimpse of that physique.
