A gaggle of new photoshoots revealed here today include a long overdue reprise with sexy Ahlisha Newton, one of our earliest additions to the site. The 30-year-old from Palm Springs, California is hanging out at Venice Beach for this shoot. Stay tuned to see how the 5-foot-6, 130-pound fitness model has kept in the game over the last few years.
With several more encore shoots along the way, perhaps none figures to be more eagerly anticipated than a second turn in front of the cameras for Erica Cordie. The cute and curvy fan favorite takes center stage in San Diego this time.
Not to be outdone, we’ve also got Jami DeBernard returning fresh from her pro card win at USAs. Plus, Colorado figure star Noora Kuusivouri, who made top ten in the tall class in Las Vegas, hits the poses and weights in a new shoot from Golds Gym. In case you missed it earlier, here’s my interview along with more pics of the athletic Finland native.
And there’s more material in store for fans of Michigan’s Rauchelle Schultz, who has been active on the contest trail this year since making a switch from figure to physique. This is already our third shoot with the chiseled brunette—her trademark calves always a treat—a rising star and likely future pro in the new division.
Of course, fresh faces are in the queue as well like Cheryl Chechel, a new figure competitor who made her national debut at USAs after taking first in the NPC Texas State last fall. The native of Long Island, New York now lives down south in Houston, and amazingly started working out only a couple years ago. But one look at the name of her Bodyspace page—futurefigurepro—is enough to suggest that the strikingly confident Big Apple beauty has designs on moving up to the big stage.
Also coming soon, Joanna Wilson is another physique crossover and finished fifth in the medium class at the USAs. The 5-foot-6 former bodybuilder was middleweight champ at the Emerald Cup in 2010. Plus there’s Tammy Cazares, lightweight bodybuilder from Naples, Florida who began competing last year and already has a couple of wins. She has her sights set on competing again at Nationals in November. Check out more about Tammy on her website. Finally, we’ll welcome national level figure competitor Gemma Santos, who slipped out of the top ten in class B at this year’s USAs after taking a close second last year.
Hopefully, more detailed features to come on some of the ladies, along with new pics from the latest shoots as they become available.
