The Top IFBB Pro Female Figure Competitors - 2010

The Top Female Figure Competitors of 2010 with Erin Stern, Larissa Reis, Monica Brant and more

I gave the top IFBB Bikini competitors their own article, so I thought I would do one on the top IFBB pro figure competitors so far in 2010.


As I have mentioned before, back in 2003, the IFBB created the figure division, which is a lot like fitness competition, but without the routines.
Figure places its emphasis on an athletic physique combined with beauty.
So it's really more like bodybuilding, but with less emphasis on muscle size, and more on muscle tone.
These ladies will generally be bigger than bikini pros, but smaller than bodybuilders.
But even though they are smaller, like their bikini pro counterparts, they train just as hard as the bigger girls, just in a different way.
And several of the women from the figure division have moved over to the bikini division.
In 2003, the first IFBB-sanctioned figure contest was the 2003 Figure International, although before that, they held the NPC Figure Nationals in 2001, which wasn’t a pro event.

So here, based on competitions in 2009 and 2010 so far, and internet popularity, are the top IFBB figure competitors so far in 2010....

1. Monica Brant

I have already done a Hub on the incredible Monica Brant-Peckham.
Monica was born on October 26, 1970, in Ft. Hood, Texas.
Yes, she's 39 years old and still going strong.
Since I'm only listing 2009 and 2010 here, I have to leave out the fitness contests that she has been in since 1991.
Yes that's 19 years.
But here is what she has done lately....

2009 IFBB Olympia- 10th Place
2009 IFBB Europa Show of Champions- 3rd Place
2009 IFBB Arnold Classic- 6th Place
2010 WBFF World's Pro Figure Champion

I guess next year I'll have to take Monica off this list, because she has moved from IFBB to WBFF.

2. Larissa Reis

That is when she's not competing.
She's five feet, five inches tall and weighs between 132 (for a contest) and 139 (off-season).

This five foot seven, blonde haired green eyed fitness beauty was born on Sept 27, 1971 in Pompano Beach, Florida.
With her looks and build (38-26-36) she could have easily gone into traditional modeling, but she hit the figure competitions instead.

2010 IFBB Fort Lauderdale Pro - 14th Place

Gorgeous Kathleen Tesori started out in Hawaiian Tropic contests before she made her way to the IFBB Figure Pro division.
Like Erin Stern, I expect to see her move way up the list.
Or maybe even switch to the IFBB Bikini Pro division.

2009 NPC National Bodybuilding, Bikini & Figure Championships - 1st Place

They are all very fit looking and look like they could build a house between them. I can imagine them carrying bricks and mortar up a ladder. LOL! Seriously, they are very sexy. And some are kind of "mannish" and ripped!
