Female Fitness Models and Female Fitness Competitors 3

Ava Cowan, Dana Hamm, Pauline Nordin, Mary Castro and more

Here is my third article about female fitness models and female fitness and figure competitors.

Like I pointed out earlier, not all fitness models are fitness or figure competitors, but a lot of them are.
Some of the most popular fitness models out there today have never competed on the national level.
But...that doesn't mean that many of them haven't put in the effort.

And many national level competitors do very little modeling, perferring to focus on competitions.
So here we go....

Dana Hamm

Exotic fitness beauty Dana Hamm has appeared in fitness magazines like Muscle Mag, Planet Muscle and Muscular Development.
Dana was born in my home state of North Carolina (in Sanford), on August 31, 1979.
Her very first fitness gig was modeling for the cover of MuscleMag International.
She differs from a lot of the other fitness models out there because of her full figure, and her killer eyes.

Ava Cowan

Ava Cowan is a fitness model, bikini model and certified personal trainer based in South Florida.
Besides doing fitness modeling, Ava has been in a few figure competitions as well.
She won the Overall Figure title at the 2005 NPC Southern States Figure Championships. She won the advanced division at the 2007 FAME North American Championships.
At the 2007 Figure America, she won short class and Overall.
Then at the 2009 Figure Universe, she won Overall Champion.
And Ava is one of these models that can go from soft and curvy, to ripped and hard in a heartbeat.
Ava has gone into competition big time recently, placing in many contests and winning the 2011 IFBB Europa Super Show in Dallas, Texas.

Cori Nadine

The beautiful Cori Nadine has been a fitness model since the 1990s.
I think I remember reading that she had actually done a few amateur female fitness competitions before becoming a fitness model, but that career never took off.
She was born on June 11th, 1969 in Pasadena, California and she owes her exotic looks to her Filipino, Irish, and Navajo Indian heritage.

Mary Castro

Another one of my favorites because she is a really nice person.
You see, I have a friend on MySpace, a little boy with cancer. I sent an appeal out to all my friends to add this brave little guy, and Mary was one of the first that responded. She may have actually been the first.
So to me that proves this lady is beautiful inside and out.
Mary was born on April 14th, 1981 in West Covina, California.
Besides fitness modeling, Mary has also done a lot of TV and movie work.

Pauline Nordin

Another fitness beauty I like so much that I did a Hub about her.
Pauline Nordin has that exotic look, plus an incredibly hard, ripped body.
She was born on July 23rd, 1982 in Ystad, Sweden.
She started training in 1999, and started competing in 2002.
Here are a few of the contests she has been in....the 2006 IFBB San Francisco Pro, the 2006 IFBB Pittsburgh Pro Figure, the 2006 IFBB California Pro Figure, the
2006 IFBB Europa Super Show, the 2007 IFBB Pittsburgh Pro Figure Championships, the 2007 IFBB California Pro Figure Championships and the 2007 IFBB Colorado Pro/Am Classic Bodybuilding And Figure Contest.

Amrit Dhaliwal

This beautiful lady is the first Indian fitness model that I remember ever seeing.
Her name is Amrit Dhaliwal and she has a lot of nicknames...."The Canadian Corporate Chic", "Punjabi Femme Fatale", "India’s First Fitness Bikini Model", "Canada’s Best Import" and I think she lives up to them all.
And there is a rumor that the lovely Amrit may have her sites set on Bollywood.

Dina al Sabah

Again, another lady I did a Hub on, Dina has suffered through a lot of prejudice to get to where she is today.
Dina was born February 28th, 1974 in Beirut, Lebanon and is related to royalty. Her grandfather was the son of Salim Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah who was the ruler of Kuwaiti from 1917 to 1921.
She has first place wins at the 2001 NPC Monica Brant Fitness Classic, the 2001 NPC Jan Tana Figure, the 2002 NPC Debbie Kruck Figure Classic, the 2002 NPC NorthEast Figure Classic and the 2003 IFBB Jan Tana Pro Figure and you can add to that finishing in many, many more.
And Dina isn't just gorgeous, she holds degrees in electrical engineering, telecommunications and computers, and an MBA.
Plus she can speak English, Spanish, French, and Arabic.
Like Ava, Dina has gone back into competing after taking seven years off.
No small feat.

Christina Lindley

Actress and Fitness model Christina Lindley was born on September 18, 1983, Atlanta, Georgia.
At one time, Christina was so popular in fitness magazines, she had a twenty five page layout in Muscular Development magazine!
Besides being a model, she has appeared in several movies and TV shows like "Curb Your Enthusiasm", The Marine (with John Cena) and "Entourage".

Michelle Lewin

Michelle Lewin is one of the hottest fitness models on the internet.
She is hugely popular and everyone seems to love her.
And while she is in incredible physical shape now...she never really was an "Ugly Duckling".
Even her "before" pictures look pretty good.

Crissi Carvalho

This is Fitness Model and Bikini competitor Crissi Carvalho.
Besides being a fitness model and a bikini competitor, Crissi is a Vegan.
And Crissi is also 42 years old.
She has had first place wins at the 2016 IFBB Australasia Bikini Model Masters Champion 35s+, Arnold Classic Australian Bikini Masters 35s+, IFBB Gold Coast Classic Bikini Masters 35s+, and the INBA Fitness Bikini Model 30s+ just to name a few.

Tanya Etessam

Tanya Etessam started out as a dancer, then she went to the Alvin Ailey School in New York City, battled anorexia and molded herself into the woman that you see here today.
Now she is a fitness model, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, IFBB Figure Competitor and motivational speaker.

These female models look great, it takes a great amount of discipline to achieve that level of physique. Most people do not have the mental strength.

Cheers
