Quick Takes

Go Figure or Physique: Strapping Lisa Shanklin could turn heads in the new division.

Tall and athletic Lisa Shanklin was a veritable overnight success on the figure stage this year, achieving national-level status in her debut at the Northern Kentucky last March. The 38-year-old mother of two went on to a top ten finish at the Masters Nationals, and later was runner-up in her class at North Americans in the 35-and-over category.

Originally from Wisconsin, the 5-foot-7, 145-pound former high school and college volleyball, basketball and track star now works as the lead personal trainer for Anytime Fitness in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Here’s a highlight from Lisa’s contest-shape shoot in Atlanta this past fall, where she showed off a very well-developed frame — impressive shoulder caps, rippling abs, sweeping quads and amazing vascularity — that could make the striking brunette another good fit for the approaching physique division.
