Female Fitness Models and Female Fitness Competitors 7
More Female Fitness Models and Female Fitness Competitors With Oksana Grishina, Karen Konyha, Stacey Thompson (Stacey Oster) and more.
Here is my seventh article about Female Fitness Models and Female Fitness Competitors.
Like in the other articles I have written, I have tried to balance between the fitness beauties that you may have heard of, and some of the up and comers that you may not be so familiar with.
Figure competition is a sub-category of Fitness Competitions, but to me it seems to have more in common with bodybuilding than with fitness.
As I have said before, you don't have to actually compete to be a fitness model, but it seems that more and more women are.
So here is the next batch of female fitness stars...
