The Top Female Fitness Competitors

Updated on January 12, 2017

The Top IFBB Female Fitness Competitors of 2010

When you hear the term International Federation of BodyBuilding and Fitness or IFBB, you probably think of massive bodybuilders on the stage flexing.

Well you are only partly right.

Yes male bodybuilding is a huge part of the IFBB, but there is more to it.

The IFBB has a class for male bodybuilders, female bodybuilders, figure competitors, bikini competitors and fitness competitors.

The Fitness competition has been around (professionally) since 1995 with the Fitness Olympia.
The very first Fitness Olympia was won by Mia Finnegan.
Right now, Susie Curry and Adela Garcia are tied for the most title victories at four each.
(Since this was originally written, Adela has won eight putting her well in the lead)

In 1997, the Fitness International started as part of the prestigious Arnold Classic weekend.
Again, the most victories held there is by Susie Curry.
But Adela Garcia is right behind her at three.
The Fitness Competition has a swimsuit round, and a routine round.
The competitors wear two piece swimsuits and high heels, showing off their physiques in a series of quarter or half turns toward the judges and the audience.

As opposed to bodybuilding, the physique competition focuses on a small amount of muscle mass, clear separations between muscle groups (a lightly ripped look); and leanness.

The Routine Round is usually aerobic, dance, and (or) gymnastic routines.
This can actually be the most entertaining part of the competition.

Here are some of the biggest names in fitness competitions today.

      If these are fitness competitors...what does the "Bodybuilders" look like? Adela and Susie are no longer tied with 4 fitness titles apiece, so I guess Adela has the most recent victory.

      All of the athletes are "ripped" and photos captures their muscle definition superbly. It would be very difficult for me if I was a judge to pick a winner from such buff, toned, and attractive fitness competitors.

      Hi Sabreblade, now I know the difference between the two competitions after reading and viewing the photos and video(s) on your lens...2011 IFBB Arnold Classic-The Women.

      Very enlightening and an excellent resource for someone who is new to the sport of Bodybuilding in general and female Bodybuilders in particular. Thanks again.
