Sharing pictures today from a shoot with the amazing Fern Assard back in 2010. The figure competitor and personal trainer plans to get back on stage later this year, perhaps even appearing at the Masters Nationals in July where she’d have a chance to earn a pro card. Don’t count her out — the legendary fit mom is well into her 40s but still training hard and looking better than ever these days.

Our latest fit sensation is Kelly Lovan, a lovely and multi-talented firecracker from San Diego. Not only is this dynamic athlete one of the hottest young personal trainers in Southern California and a blossoming women’s physique competitor, but she’s also a rising force in powerlifting circles.

Kelly competed last weekend at the Western Warrior Powerlifting Challenge in Phoenix, Arizona and her impressive marks — including a 331-pound deadlift, 231-pound squat, and 185-pound bench press — qualifyied the 5-foot-3 brunette to compete next at the national level in the sport.

Kelly shows off her hard-earned strength flexing on the physique stage and placed in the top five at the Ironman Natural in 2014. She also competed at the Jr. Nationals in 2013 and is a cinch to climb the division’s rankings this year.

Lou caught up with Kelly for her debut photoshoot out in San Diego recently and she was looking bulked-up and ready ahead of her latest powerlifting meet. Hopefully more news on Kelly to come, but for now enjoy some shots of this impressive new face as we kick off another season at the studio.

It’s a good time to look back on a classic armwrestling showdown between Elsie Velazquez and Rebekah Kresila during an epic tandem shoot from North Americans weekend back in 2010. The ‘Girls of Ohio’ put on quite an exhibition of strength feats, posing and more on a late summer day along the shores of Lake Erie.

Exciting news on this Throwback Thursday as our favorite Air Force officer and avid rock climber, Holland Canter, is planning a comeback later this year. Photos above are from one of her last competitions, the NPC Nationals in 2012, when she placed sixth in her physique class. It’s wonderful to hear this physique superstar is getting back into the game.

The latest addition to our lineup is Natalie Lyle, an athletic blonde beauty who runs her own cosmetics business and travels to shows doing contest makeup for competitors. The impressive young star out of Southern California has also stepped on stage herself in the bikini division, but could be ready for the figure class with all the muscle she’s added to her lengthy frame the last couple years.

For this edition of Throwback Thursday, we’ve got a big Texas hardbody in Ginger Martin. The 5-foot-6, 140-pound Lone Star State beauty had a solid season when this shoot took place back in 2012, winning at the NPC Texas State Championships and then finishing top ten on the national stage.

Joanna Wilson is marvelous national-level specimen who deserves an extended peek into the archives on this Throwback Thursday. The 5-foot-6 brunette beauty has been a perennial top ten finisher on the women’s physique stage and claimed third place in her class — nearly earning a pro card — in 2013 at the NPC USAs. Not surprisingly, she’s one of the most respected personal trainers in the Pacific Northwest and shares her experience and knowledge daily at Anytime Fitness, the gym she owns in Centralia, Washington. These pictures are from a shoot in the summer of 2011 and feature Joanne in top condition with well-developed size, razor-sharp curves and flawless symmetry. A pro in the making.
