An all-time favorite, top fitness pro Amanda Hatfield is our Throwback Thursday girl of the week in pictures from a shoot at North Americans in 2011. The sensational Ohio native is still going strong and in the midst of one of her best competitive years ever. This summer, Amanda took sixth at the Tampa Pro and was fourth at the Chicago Pro. She’ll make her Fitness Olympia debut next month.
One of the perks of being a fitness pro is performing guest routines headlining smaller shows. That’s what young star Kelcie Gahley did at last weekend’s NPC Dexter Jackson Classic in Jacksonville, Florida. Check out the video of our Flex Friday pick of the week in action.
Alabama native Robin Castro steps into the spotlight for this Flex Friday. Our latest bikini gal is fresh from a 12th-place finish in her class at last weekend’s NPC USAs. The future looks bright for this sassy Southern Belle.
Bodybuilder Patty Corbett Becomes New IFBB Pro
Pictured in a 2008 shoot, ageless muscle girl Patty Corbett — who won her pro card earlier this month at the Masters Nationals in Pittsburgh — steps into the spotlight for this week’s Throwback Thursday. The longtime lightweight bodybuilder from California broke through after finishing second on the same stage last year. A great personal milestone for Patty and a triumph for mature competitors in a sport where dedication and effort is timeless.
In today’s Throwback Thursday we have tall class figure competitor and Georgia native Katie LeBoeuf in a couple of shots from the 2012 Nationals held in Atlanta.
Congrats to Tracy Pruitt for grabbing second in the figure short class this past weekend at Masters Nationals in Pittsburgh. Our little Texas firecracker missed earning a pro card by just one place — again! — but nevertheless was among first call outs and continues to be one of the top competitors in the division. Her time will come!
