Some of these ladies are from the world of female fitness competition and some are fitness models...like the title says.
I pointed out the difference between the two in my first Hub.
And female bodybuilders are a whole 'nother story, but they have a loyal following too.
Even though they are not included in this Hub, I'll be taking them into consideration later.
It's kinda hard to find a picture to go with an entry on her, because this woman has an incredible body and she likes to show it off (within limits that is).
It's also kinda hard to find any kind of contest history on her.
The only events that I could find was the 2006 Hardbody Entertainment's World's Fittest Model Search which she won, the John Sherman Classic in Houston in 2005 and the 2006 NPC Junior Nationals in Chicago.
Jamie was born on April 10, 1976 and stands 5'2".
She's a fitness model, television show fitness instructor, actress, author, a former Oakland Raider cheerleader and is of Chinese, Hawaiian and Irish descent.
You may remember her from the ESPN TV show, Bodyshaping in 1988.
Kiana proved so popular there that she got her own show, Kiana's Flex Appeal in 1995.
She co-starred in the 1999 film, Universal Soldier: The Return, with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Michael Jai White.
And she has acting in her blood.
Her father Layne Tom Jr. played Charlie Chan's son in 3 of the Charlie Chan movies.
She's been an actress, a fitness model, a film producer, a WWE Diva, and a singer (her first CD is available on Itunes, Amazon and CDbaby).
Although I can't find any record of her ever competing, she has shown up in several muscle magazines (Muscle and Fitness for one) as a fitness model.
Amy was so popular on the WWE that she kept her feud going with fellow Diva Joy Giovanni after they both left the WWE, culminating in a wrestling DVD "Amy vs Joy" released early in 2009!
And she was voted one of the "Top 10 Fitness Models" by the voters at AskMen.com.
In May 2009, Amy gave birth to twins.
But I expect to see her back on the scene in short order.
But she is not only a fitness model, she is also a fitness trainer and a nutritionist.
And she's also a Kickboxing trainer, so watch yourselves guys!
Carmen's appeared on the cover and inside magazines like Muscle and Fitness Hers, Oxygen, Ironman and Planet Muscle.
Carmen was born on July 16, 1977, in Havana, Cuba, and raised in Miami, Florida.
Jenn has overcome a lot to get to where is is today.
James Brown may have been called the "Hardest Working Man in Show Business" but Jennifer may be the "Hardest Working Woman in Fitness".
She's been on Oprah, E! Entertainment infomercials and on September 19th, Jennifer won the WBFF Miss Bikini Diva Competition in Toronto for the second straight year in a row.
Jennifer has gone from self proclaimed "frumpy housewife" to where she is today through a combination of eating right and hard work.
One that I can post at least.
Ashley got her start in fitness modeling by entering a Hawaiian Tropic swimsuit contest.
She won the local event and that qualified her to go to national contest in Las Vegas.
Ashley was chosen as a Met-Rx fitness spokesmodel and she hasn't looked back since.
In an interview with her, I read that she stays within five pounds of her competing weight all the time with a combination of diet and working out.
She doesn't have an "off-season".
