Hot For Teacher: Meet NPC Bikini Star Summer Taylor

IMG_8648The new sport of NPC Bikini is attracting a great variety of women from diverse backgrounds and disciplines.  One would think that the most successful Bikini Athletes and stars would come from dance, theatre or modeling and that they would primarily be from warm and sunny states such as Florida or California.  However, the Bikini talent network stretches much further than just these three disciplines and states.


Meet Indiana resident and educator Summer Taylor.  Summer has already made a name for herself at the National NPC Bikini level and her goal of becoming an IFBB Pro is well within reach.

Countdown to Vegas. . . Camala Rodriguez Trains Back!

CamalaChill (3)As the countdown begins to this year's Olympia in Vegas. I thought it was time to catch up with some of the leading competitors to find out how things were going in terms of their preparation for the final showdown. First up is Camala Rodriguez who has had a pretty rapid ascension up the competitive ladder when it comes to the fitness division.

When I caught up with her she was just about to train back, so I thought I would take advantage of the situation and ask her a few questions on her back workout. However, before we get into that, let's take a brief time-out to find out just a little more about this rising star in the fitness ranks.....



When Others Speak on Your Behalf

Getting your name out there, gaining attention and marketing yourself is a smart idea. An easy way to do that is through the Internet and outlets like Youtube, Twitter, Facebook and/or your own blog. Nothing earth shattering or new there, right? Right.

When you do it on your own, you have control over what you publish. Many times fans will post videos or talk about competitors and how they look or what's happening with them. This happens often and out of your control. It doesn't mean you agree with what's being said or how it's presented. Other times there are people who like to speak on a competitor's behalf, and when this happens they act as the messenger on behalf of the competitor.



Meet Ali Rosen - Another Interstate 4 Future Superstar

IMG_7392Interstate 4 stretches from Daytona Beach, Florida on the East coast to Tampa, Florida on the West coast.  The drive will usually take you about 2 hours.  If your a Floridian or visiting the Sunshine State you know I-4 as Traffic Jam City.  It can take up to one hour to cover a three mile stretch when passing through Orlando.

Besides being know as the connection between the East and the West coast of Florida, I-4 also has the unofficial title as IFBB Bikini Capital of the World.  Last year, this interstate highway was the home of an unusually large number of NPC Bikini Athletes who earned their IFBB Bikini Pro Cards last year.  IFBB Bikini Athletes Jaime Baird, Missy Coles, Kira Riveria, Jessica Lawrence & Amanda Procida all lived off of I-4 exits.  Maybe it's the weather or maybe yet it might just be that this region of Florida is the Mecca of Bikini.

Meet Ali Rosen, another shining example of  a beautiful NPC I-4 future Bikini Superstar.  Ali, a very beautiful and athletic girl decided to showcase her talent by competing in the NPC Bikini Division.  The pieces are all there.  Ali has a rocking body, gorgeous face and the charisma to make a judge smile.  Needless to say, Ali has it going on!


The Multifaceted Nicole Ball!

DSC_8805Nicole Ball belongs to a select group of bodybuilders who, in truth, need never set foot on a bodybuilding stage again yet still be universally accepted as a champion within the community.

However, that being said, since turning pro in 2006, her competitive endeavors have been impressive enough for her always to be considered a threat in the pro ranks. As she currently prepares to return to competition at the PBW Tampa Pro, the anticipation is building as to what she will bring to the stage this time around. One thing is for sure, surprises are in store. In fact Nicole is a woman full of little surprises, as I discovered when I spoke to her recently about her life on and off the stage......



The following memo was issued today by the IFBB Professional League:

"Please be advised that starting with the 2010 Houston Pro Figure competition and all Pro Figure competitions after the 2010 Figure Olympia, there will be only one round in IFBB Pro Figure - the two-piece swimsuit.


The Great Bikini Debate: ‘Stephanie Wicked’ Answers The Critics


One of the hottest topics on the contest scene at the moment is the arrival of the new bikini division. Let’s face it, from the moment these girls appeared on the bodybuilding stage feathers have been ruffling and criticisms have been flying.

However, I guess as with most things in life there are two sides to the story and, in the interest in presenting the story from the competitors point of view, I recently sat down with ‘Stephanie Wicked’ who not only competes in this new division but also has very strong feelings when it comes to its right to be included in bodybuilding competitions.

But, before we get into all of that, I have to ask the time honored question…
