OTHER PRO CARD WINNERS

Willaine Marquez – Class B Winner
Judge’s comments “Could be tighter everywhere, especially in the legs. I don’t mean bodybuilding tighter – I mean about 4 pounds tighter. Don’t come in shredded. She has to change up her stance, relax her shoulders, pull them back a little bit and open up her back.”

 

 

 

 

 

Dani Ronquilio – Masters Over 35 Class C Winner
Judge’s comments “She needs to be a lot leaner. Her lower half is way too heavy. Her upper body does not match her lower body. If she’s in shape she can be dangerous, but she has to bring that lower half down.”

 

 

 

 

 

Cinderella Richardson – Masters Over 35 Class B Winner
Judge’s comments “Needs to be leaner, her legs need to be tighter. She just came in too heavy, especially in the legs.”

 

 

 

 

 

Sheri Fisher – Masters Over 35 Overall and Class F Winner
Judge’s comments “Needs better leg development, especially the front thighs. Pretty good from the back. She’s going to have to improve that to be a good pro. Also needs to learn how to present herself a little better.”

Judge’s comments “Very cute. Needs to be darker – her color was very light. Her suit could use some work. Very nice body.
