Figure Competitor Dawn Fernandez Coming Soon

Desert Gym Rat: Phoenix figure girl Dawn Fernandez

We see quite a bit of downsizing lately with figure to bikini crossovers so it’s good to find a new athlete take a turn towards upsizing her physique. Dawn Fernandez, sixth-place in her bikini class at Nationals last year, has shifted to the figure ranks and you’ll be seeing more of her transformation progress soon on the studio.

In a feature for models observer, the 41-year-old mother of three reveals her competitive journey began in 2009 with a classic bikini division win at Fitness Universe. But the Phoenix, Arizona resident refused to put the weights down and began training harder to build muscle for what became a memorable figure debut, a tall class and overall title at the NPC Western Regional last November.

More recently, an impressive sixth-place finish in class E at the Arnold Amateur — where her photoshoot took place — provides further proof that Dawn’s future at this level continues to look bright. “So much happier as a figure competitor,” she shared with me recently. “Not sure what is next, just training and adding a little size here and there. Will keep you posted though!”

  1. Hello,
    I appreciate the write up and the support. Glad we got a chance to shoot some muscle shots with the dumbbells. I’ve been in the gym daily working on my physique and can’t wait to show it off at my next show. Stay tuned…

    Thank you!!!


  2. Dawn Fernandez is an absolutely stunning fitness model and competitor. Her rise to win the competitions after a long period of recuperation from an auto accident and foot surgery shows that where there is a will there is a way.
    She is featured on ModelsActresses International on Facebook.
