Inna Wyatt made a sensational return to the figure stage this season, first winning the overall title at the Emerald Cup and then earning a pro card at the Masters Nationals in Pittsburgh. We actually caught up with this beauty — originally from Russia and now residing in Washington state — in the Steel City for a photoshoot just before her big win. You can see in these samples from her update this week just how the 36-year-old former dancer and soccer player impressed the judges with that combination of awesome conditioning and great muscle proportion. Gotta love all she brings along with colorful splashes of purple in her hair for a wild, fun look on this Flex Friday.

Mandi Thompson steps into the spotlight for this week’s Flex Friday in impressive pictures from her debut shoot at the Jr. Nationals this summer. The Houston, Texas native has been strong on the national figure stage and continued that trend with a top five placing in Chicago. Mandi brings a powerhouse physique to the party, with great back and shoulder development and particularly outstanding quads that probably rank up there with a few physique competitors.

Photoshoot Recap—2017 NPC USAs

•August 5, 2017 • Leave a Comment

Superstar in the Making: Nicole Wolf, one of our new models, won the overall figure title at 2017 NPC USAs last weekend.

The latest NPC USAs is a wrap and we’ve got 5 new shoots coming soon from the highly competitive and always exciting national event held out in Las Vegas. Even better, the girls brought their A-game for this show, winning three pro cards and looking great in contest shape, so let’s get right to the rundown.

Nicole Wolf – Speaking of bringing the best, this was Nicole’s national level debut and came on the heels of an impressive class win at this year’s Emerald Cup. As good as that is, Nicole was far from done and capped a storybook year by becoming the newest NPC USA figure overall champion! The blonde beauty out of Twin Falls, Idaho has only been competing for two years but her flawless look has her heading for the pros. We have a luminous new superstar on our hands and you’ll get to see the results – along with those perfect, hard-earned, championship-caliber figure muscles – right up close.

Jennifer McArver – Most classes are competitive at the USAs and figure class C was no different. Jennifer secured a pro card by finishing second in the group and now heads to the IFBB. The former crossfitter and rising figure star has been a strong finisher on the national level – she also finished second in two shows last year – and it was just a matter of time before she achieved her breakthrough. This is our third shoot with the charming brunette from Texas after also catching up last year at the Jr. Nationals and Nationals, and she just keeps getting better.

Sexy Figures: Jennifer McArver (left) and Kelly Fantauzzi both have new shoots coming soon from the USAs.

Kayleigh Padilla – Kaleigh is a former gymnast and cheerleader making her sexy debut on the site. The 27-year-old lifelong athlete began her competitive journey in the figure division but eventually shifted to physique. She made a solid impression by winning the NPC Texas State overall title last year and kept that streak going on the national stage. The Arkansas beauty left Las Vegas a winner with a class A trophy and a new physique pro card.

Kelly Fantauzzi – This blonde bombshell joins the roster with a great deal of promise on the figure scene. She competed in a tough class and made first call outs on her way to a fourth place finish. Like her good friend Jennifer McArver, Kelly is a wonderful poser and really shines for the camera. Another rising star from Texas whose great looks and solid physique make her a definite future pro contender.

Andrea Martinez – Andrea puts the proverbial cherry on top of our coverage and this physique competitor brings perhaps the most striking package of all with tremendous conditioning and baseball biceps. Also, she adds to our fit mom collection by being the mother of four daughters. Andrea competed and made top ten in her physique class so you’ll definitely want to stick around to see the footage from this shoot.

We’ve got a recap of last week’s NPC USA event coming up shortly, but first want to introduce the lovely Sonya Istocka, one of our latest models. The 25-year-old former volleyball and basketball player is shifting to the fitness scene and has had a most successful debut in her homestate of Ohio, competing locally at the North Coast Championships this season. As you can see, the 5-foot-11, 152-pound Akron University alum has what it takes to make a strong addition to the national level very soon. More feminine muscle and girl next door beauty at a very high level this week on Flex Friday.

Lauren Quinn proudly strides into the spotlight on this championship edition of Flex Friday. We say that because these pics were taken at the recent Jr. Nationals, site of Lauren flexing her way to a hard-earned and very well deserved overall title in the women’s physique division. The longtime athlete from Chicago has made tremendous gains since switching from figure to physique and sealed it with a pro card win in her hometown. Congrats to Lauren on becoming the reigning Jr. Nationals physique champ!

Photoshoot Recap—2017 NPC Masters Nationals

It makes for a pretty unforgettable experience whenever a competitor goes on a long trip to a show and comes back with heavier luggage than before because they had to pack a brand new shimmering trophy in their suitcase. It’s even better when a couple of best friends are ultimately faced with the same challenge.

That’s how things unfolded for figure girl Inna Wyatt, who won her pro card at the Masters Nationals in Pittsburgh over the weekend. She came into the show already with a win under her belt when she took the overall at this year’s Emerald Cup. Inna traveled cross country from Seattle with her top pal, Clarissa Diaz Rafanan, who also won her pro card in the physique division.

We’ve got new contest shape shoots coming up from Inna and Clarissa from the NPC Masters Nationals where they earned their new trophies; it will be Clarissa’s debut shoot and our second with Inna after a long hiatus. The girls also tag teamed for a Sisters in Arms segment.

Plus we’ve got new footage with Morgan Coggins, who also won her pro card in the figure division. The Chicago girl has been training hard and perfecting her look for the stage since 2009 and now she has officially punched her ticket to the IFBB.

That’s three new shoots and three new pros! Stay tuned because next week we’ll have more new models and shoots from the fast-approaching NPC USAs in Las Vegas.

 

Flex Friday – Sarah Bruce

•July 21, 2017 • Leave a Comment

 

 

Flex Friday is back and we’re featuring one of our latest models, Sarah Bruce, an outstanding and gorgeous young figure competitor out Columbus, Ohio. The 29-year-old started her competitive journey two years ago and made her national level debut at the Jr. Nationals — where her debut photo shoot took place — and finished an impressive fourth place in her class. Sarah’s weightlifting background began when she skated in the rough and tumble world of roller derby, a sport she played for five years before turning to figure. It gave her a rock-solid lower body to start with and now she has some of the best quad sweep, tie-in and calves on the NPC stage. Keep an eye trained on this blossoming pro card contender!
