The Top IFBB Pro Bikini Competitors

The Top IFBB Bikini Pro Competitors

IFBB Pro Bikini is a new category in IFBB (International Federation of BodyBuilders) contests, but not all bodybuilding fans are crazy about this new division, saying that bikini contests are better suited for spring break. Some feel that the bikini division was created just to draw more attention to the contest and bring in more money.

But these ladies train hard and diet to get into competition shape. So if they work as hard as their bodybuilding counterparts, why not hold them in just as high regard?

To recognize their hard work, here are some of the women that I think will be the main players in this new division.

1. Marzia Prince

I have an entire article devoted to Marzia, and this blond fitness beauty from Dallas, Texas may be the first big thing in the IFBB Pro Bikini division. But, don't think this lady is all show.

She's a certified personal trainer, a physical fitness specialist, and a pre/postnatal fitness instructor. She is trained in the biomechanics of resistance training, is a fitness specialist for older adults (65 and up), and she has her nutrition certification and is CPR certified. Whew!
Marzia has appeared in magazines such as Planet Muscle, Flex, Muscle Mag, Oxygen, and Muscular Development just to name a few.

Kristal was the Bikini Overall Champ at the 2009 NPC USA Championships and got her Pro card.
She later came in 2nd place at the 2009 Arnold Classic bikini contest. And these bikini contests didn't end with someone getting hit over the head with a folding chair!

I am definitely not a body builder, but some of my friends are. All I can tell you is that if I went to one of their competitions and they had a contest with those girkls, I would enjoy watching it better than watching my friends. I love the smooth muscle tone of those girls.

Not usually into female body builders, but these certainly had the right curves. :)

I like women who have some development, as long as it's not too much. Call me old fashioned or traditional or just that kind of female, but I like a woman to retain the curvy parts that make her appealing to ...well..whoever finds her appealing! Heh! That said, Kristal is deff my fave here. She is just divine. And Amanda has a rocking body too! Phew! Hot Hub! Nicely done, my friend!

"Articles" like this, beckons for 'Google Image Searches'...

Is this your tact? Ha-ha!

Nice hub, but I'll take the full-figured, big-booty girls any day as opposed to these "healthy figures"...although, I'll reconsider my prior verbiage, when it comes to your pics of Tianna and Amanda; Yummy!

Keep up the good work in the field of 'sports & recreation' even though I find this category to be misplaced, of some sorts, but yet it belongs in its own right... ;)

sabrebIade 6 years ago from Pennsylvania Author

Yeah I know, "Bodybuilding" in sports and rec is the closest I could find category wise. And since Bikini Pro is a branch of the IFBB (International Federation of BodyBuilders)I stuck it here.

Most of the women body builders I've seen are too developed. Their faces always look skeletal. Scary, and not feminine at all. These women on your hub are toned, feminine, and totally hot. Thanks for sharing.

Nicely done. These woman are gorgeous and well defined. I like this side of body building for women.

Voted up, beautiful, and interesting...Thanks, Larry

This IS the correct category. IFBB Bikini came out of the world of bodybuilding, and they have to work much like bodybuilders (without as much drugs), to build a nice physique. Its not some "woohoo, hey these girls are hot, everybody scream for your favorite". Its hard work, respect, and placement, based on a number of different criteria. Both men AND women judges judge these competitions.


Myra 5 years ago

Having won an ameteur level regional bikini competition, I can tell you it is very difficult to train for the "bikini ideal" muscle balance/proportion withOUT leaning out or getting too defined. Achieving the right balance is a science, just like bodybuilding or figure. Bikini is slightly more forgiving than bodybuilding because the diet is more liberal.


Top Notch 5 years ago

These girls are beautiful, but I honestly think that Jessica Jessie deserves to be in the top 10. That girl is Too Marvelous for Words
