Kelly Lynn returned to the national scene at the North Americans in Pittsburgh this past summer and rocked the stage, winning trophies in both the figure and women’s physique divisions. She was fourth in a highly competitive figure open C class, and third in the physique 35 and over class. Longtime fans of the sport will no doubt notice how much K-Lynn has packed on quality muscle and really taken her physique to the next level. The star personal trainer is edging closer to pro status and might very well break through next time in the spotlight.

Flex Friday – Nicole Wolf

Nicole Wolf, the reigning NPC USAs figure overall champion, made her debut on the site this week in a photo gallery fresh from the weekend of her big win. Amazingly, this platinum blonde beauty from Twin Falls, Idaho has only been competing for two years and the USAs was her very first national level show. Nicole mixes her signature look of confidence and strength with the flawless package she brought to the stage in Las Vegas — abs, quads and biceps chiseled from granite — to make this edition of Flex Friday one for the books.

Physique Pro Jodi Miller Coming Soon!

•September 20, 2017 • 2 Comments

Queen of Peaks: Longtime competitor and IFBB pro physique girl Jodi Miller is coming to the Studio.

Exciting news to share on the blog today as Jodi Miller, longtime competitor out of Dallas, Texas, is coming soon to Krivs Studio in a debut shoot from the Arizona Pro held earlier this month. Jodi competed and took home an impressive fifth-place finish at the tough pro show. Dan Ray did the photos and videos for this epic shoot.

Jodi arrives on the site as one of the most accomplished athletes in the industry. The 44-year-old has participated in bodybuilding and figure shows as well as obstacle course challenges and WPC powerlifting meets during a distinguished and successful competitive career that now spans over seventeen years.

Jodi rose to pro status in other federations but earning the title in the NPC proved elusive. That changed in 2015, after she shifted to the women’s physique division and won her class—and at long last, an IFBB pro card—at the NPC Team Universe in Teaneck, N.J.

On stage or off, Jodi is a joy to watch, always bringing creativity and energy to her physique posing routines—just check out this one from the 2016 Arctic Pro in Alaska—along with a huge smile and sense of genuine enjoyment in what she’s doing.

In addition to all her athletic triumphs, Jodi is also a posing coach, prolific blogger and published author of the motivational book, “Ready, Set, Achieve.” She’s a graduate of the University of Texas and a former school teacher.

But most fans know Jodi by her smallish stature (she’s just 4-foot-11), or her legendary bicep peaks—beautifully defined, shapely muscles that rise to incredible little mountains—which were getting attention even before she ever stepped out on stage. In fact, according to a story Jodi shares, it was the reaction she got to an early double bicep flex that helped inspire her to become a bodybuilder in the first place.

Flex Friday – Kayleigh Padilla

It’s Friday and that means another look at one of our latest models. This week the spotlight shines on Kayleigh Padilla, a radiantly lovely and highly athletic former gymnast and cheerleader who began competing in figure but soon made the switch to physique. The 27-year-old dominated the south region last year in winning the Texas State overall; Kayleigh carried that momentum onto the national stage this summer, winning a trophy in the short class and a women’s physique pro card at the NPC USAs, where her debut photo shoot took place. Those pics show a very well-rounded competitor with a great look poised to make waves on the pro level very shortly.

Flex Friday – Kelly Fantauzzi

One of our latest models, Kelly Fantauzzi was a tremendous catch at the recent NPC USAs in Las Vegas. The beautiful blonde figure girl out of Texas took on a competitive class in the always tough national level show and shined all the way to a fourth place finish, solidifying her status as a pro card contender moving forward. Kelly looked outstanding for our cameras as well, showing off a great physique highlights — capped shoulders, powerful quads and deeply etched abs — to go with that gorgeous face and sexy presence. Lots to look at and admire this week on Flex Friday.

Carli Terepka Wins Physique Overall at 2017 North Americans

•September 6, 2017 • Leave a Comment

Carli Terepka

From teen phenom to new IFBB star, Carli Terepka won her class, the overall title and a pro card in the women’s physique division over the weekend at the NPC North Americans in Pittsburgh. The 22-year-old began competing in the figure division as a teen and shifted to physique last season. We first caught up with Carli for a shoot at the Arnold in 2014 and knew she was destined for great things.

Carli has competed in over a dozen shows and has been close to winning a pro card in a few, snatching several top five finishes on the national stage. Most knew it was just a matter of time before she put everything together and that was the case at the North Americans, where Carli stepped on stage with an absolutely flawless package. Physique, symmetry, presentation—you name it, she was on point.

Even more impressive, Carli accomplished the feat during one of the busiest times of her life, training and prepping while working and studying long hours for her nursing license in her home state of Ohio. People told her she couldn’t be a champion bodybuilder and graduate nursing school at the same time. But she obtained her license at the beginning of August and won her pro card at the end—not a bad month.

After the win, Carli wrote about her journey on Facebook: “I went to school, I worked 12hr shifts as a nursing assistant, and I trained my ass off…People called me crazy but I believe if you want to achieve excellence in anything, you gotta be a little nutty. We got one shot at life and it will be over before we know it, go get what you want.”

Well said, Champ, and congratulations!

Photoshoot Recap—2017 NPC North Americans

•September 5, 2017 • Leave a Comment

Kelly Lynn

Kelly Lynn – Our very own video editor and star personal trainer made a dazzling return to the competitive scene at the North Americans in Pittsburgh this past weekend, winning trophies in both the figure and women’s physique divisions. Kelly was fourth in a very crowded figure open C class, and even better, claimed third in the physique 35 and over class—which left her just one spot away from earning a pro card that will certainly be within reach next time.

Stephanie Mitch – We first caught up with this impressive tall class national level figure cutie at the Jr. Nationals earlier this summer, where she notched a top ten finish in her figure class. Now the athletic brunette and Indiana native is back to delight you in an encore shoot after placing seventh in class F at the North Americans.

Brittany Nicole Bennett – Brittany is set for a sparkling two-way debut—an individual shoot as well as a Sisters in Arms showcase—that will have you marveling. Her remarkable story belies the photos, but this beautiful trainer and coach out of Fort Worth, Tex., recently battled back from serious health problems and a lengthy hospital stay to take her spot on the national physique stage. She’s a brave fighter, a great inspiration to never give up, and a winner in the most important sense.

Lauren Martin-Stow – Lauren is a 24-year-old rising star in the figure ranks who claimed a sixth place finish in the figure open C division at North Americans. Her nickname, “She-Hulk,” suggests that maybe a crossover to the physique division might be in the cards one day. You be the judge. We’ll introduce her in a solo shoot and then with Brittany Nicole for a Sisters in Arms feature.

Angie Corbin

Sarah Grace – This Orlando, Florida native got into weight lifting just two years ago as a way to alleviate the stresses of working through law school. She fell in love with it and now is beginning to shine brightly in the national figure spotlight. Sarah competed at the USAs before making her way to the North Americans, where she secured a top ten finish in a crowded figure F field. The striking, 5-foot-10 cutie has an adorable, girl next door look and charm, a great attitude about flexing and loves showing off her hard work.

Angie Corbin – Back for her third and perhaps most impressive shoot yet, this lovely and underrated Northwest hardbody just keep getting better. Angie competed in both figure and physique divisions at the North Americans, grabbing a top ten in her figure class and placing sixth in the women’s physique over 40 category. Angie certainly looks like she has added some muscle and could be a sleeper to watch in physique. Meanwhile, she definitely had onlookers mesmerized, rocking her shoot in Station Square flexing in that classic Hollywood dress. A gorgeous beauty wraps up the weekend in high style.
