Southern Belle—Alabama’s Tish Shelton after winning a pro card at the 2013 NPC North Americans. She has her sights set on qualifying for the Olympia this year.

Newly minted physique pro Tish Shelton has lofty goals in mind for her first season in the IFBB ranks—namely earning a trip to Las Vegas to compete in the Olympia next fall. Challenging expectations to be sure but certainly legitimate considering the rising star from Mobile, Alabama brings a notable and striking package to the stage.

In fact, we just discussed a coterie of contenders for the upcoming season in the previous post that could have easily included the steely 5-foot-1, 125-pound powerhouse and reigning NPC North Americans short class champion. Pro physique continues to be intriguing with newcomers like Rikki Smead, Erica Blockman, Tracy Weller and Tish Shelton all joining the mix this year.

Following Tish’s dazzling, pro card-winning routine, highlights from a contest shape debut shoot in Pittsburgh, Pa. last summer feature a tantalizing combination of sinewy and sinuous. Tish’s tremendous development is on display—wide, detailed back; tight, shapely glutes; thickly muscled quads and terrific calves; bulging forearms and sculpted biceps—artfully capped by beautiful, slow-motion movements and graceful posing against an appropriate brick wall backdrop. You don’t want to miss these neat video clips.

Along with her athletic credentials, Tish is also a personal nutrition consultant, first-grade teacher and a mom of three. She actually competed in figure and made the top ten in her class at Team Universe last year before switching over to WP. The short class and pro card win at North Americans came in her first national level show as a physique competitor.
