Prime Time: You might start spotting Ashley Sebera not on a fitness stage but on a TV set. The busy fitness pro is in the middle of adding another gig to her athletic resume signing a deal to eventually become a new WWE Diva. Her wrestling pseudonym will be Dana Brooke. Think she’s tough enough to hold her own in the squared circle? We do.

Peaked Princess: It’s been a long time since we checked in with Capucine Leconte and even though this footage is a couple years old, you’re likely to enjoy looking back at the curvaceous powerhouse turning heads while doing a long set of pull ups during an Expo. Cap is one strong girl.

Eat Those Vegetables: Finally, Kristin Bogie recently started an excellent blog with plenty of training, motivation and nutrition tips that you can find by clicking here. The fiery and unequivocal personal trainer out of Pittsburgh, Pa. isn’t one to sugar coat her advice for readers. Among other topics, her latest post takes on would-be fitness enthusiasts who haven’t yet learned to eat vegetables. “Then learn!!” Kristen admonishes. “Broccoli won’t kill you. Stop being a brat and eat the green stuff!” Better listen to her.
