Female Fitness Models and Female Fitness Competitors 8

With Jennifer Gates, Larissa Reis, Erin Stern, Jelena Abbou, Gina Aliotti, Felicia Romero and Amy Fry.

Here is my eighth article devoted to female fitness.
This time, most of the fitness beauties here are figure competitors, but there are a few fitness competitors here and there.
And almost all (if not all) of them are fitness models as well.

One thing I have noticed recently is that fitness modeling used to be the domain of the fitness stars.
But now quite a few figure competitors are getting attention in advertizing.
Just goes to show you how some things change.

Anyway...here are some up and coming fitness stars, and little about them, along with a list of the women's fitness competitions they have been in.

At 5'8" Amy Fry looks very statuques and the muscle definition of her legs is visually captivating. She is a "big strong girl" to say the least. They are all ripped!
