Blonde Ambition: Sexy hulk Amanda Ptak returns in a new shoot from the North Americans.

The North Americans show is a wrap for the year and so are the photoshoots. With that said, let’s recap the action that unfolded in front of Krivs Studio lenses in Pittsburgh this past weekend.

This year’s show was a little different in that there was a masters pro class in figure, bodybuilding, physique and bikini to go along with open NPC figure, physique, bikini and fitness. On the pro side we’ve got new material with ageless star Patty Corbett who competed on the bodybuilding stage and two new arrivals, Kathleen Sarmento, from the figure division and Andrea Bordeaux of New Orleans, who took home a pro card after winning the 45-and-up physique division.

Toni Wheeler returns to the site and brings along a friend, fitness competitor Shelby Maynard. The two women did a tandem shoot complete with some fun armwrestling, lift & carry, comparisons and fitness tricks. Plus we have two more new physique competitors coming soon in Esther Carnabuci, who brings split biceps to the party, and Laura Foster, who was the lightweight winner in the open class.

Another newcomer sure to be remembered by longtime fans is Canada’s Emmanuela Pintus, who began in bodybuilding in the late 90s before shifting to the figure division. The popular fitness model has a background in soccer and track and has been training since she was a teen. An exciting and long anticipated shoot.

Finally, we’ll catch up with the always stunning Amanda Ptak (formerly Amanda Folstad), who returns in perhaps her best shape ever. The Arizona star will be back on the blog in this week’s Throwback Thursday so plenty of Amanda coming your way.
