Introducing Sarah Pawlicki - figure competitor

Hi! my name is Sarah Pawlicki. I began competing in Fugure competitions in 2005, thirteen months after I had my daughter Faith. My goal was always to come back from pregnancy and proove that I could get my body back and I did!

I won my first Figure compeition, taking not only first, but overall as well! This year I made the leap to Nationals competiing in the NY Team Universe and the USA's in Vegas. I did well for my first year competing nationally! I know what I have to do for next year and am actively pursuing success in the spring of next year! I also run an online training sight, and have invented a new piece of equipment. The Spider ball is about to become the new face of fitness! The patent is pending and we can't wait to get it out to the world! Thanks for your attention.

Claudia Morales

A new up-and-coming female bodybuilder to look out for is Jersey girl Claudia Morales. Claudia recently won the heavyweights and overall at the 2006 Excalibur in Bridgewater, N.J. - her first ever bodybuilding show.

Claudia, who is 28 years-old and 5-foot-7 and 148 pounds in contest shape, has two pretty illustrious training partners - national-level competitors Elena Seiple and Heather Lee. “Being able to see them and train with them was an incredible motivation to push myself harder than I had before,” she says. “It gave me something to strive to and compete against, which I couldn’t do training mostly with men.”

Claudia plans on making her national-level debut at Junior Nationals next summer.
