This incredible photo is of Robyn Mentgen who placed 4th in the 2007 NPC Jr. Nationals. There's little information about her, but for Google references to a Robyn Mentgen who's working to help dogs. Perhaps that's the same person?

Tracy Beckham By GeneX


Tracy Beckham, originally uploaded by genexmagazine.

The arresting photo's about Tracy Beckham. I don't know if she's related to the famoud soccer guy, but here's more about her from Andy Vogel:

Where and when were you born? Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; 11/11/1961

What is your profession? Certified Personal Trainer and Owner of Tracy Beckham’s Unique Physiques.

What kind of activities/sports did you do before you started lifting weights? This is on website – BIO area.

How and when did you get involved into lifting weights? I started lifting weights in 1985 in an “all female” gym just to get into better shape. As like most women, I was bottom heavy and wanted to balance out my shape. Lifting weights did that for me with amazing results and quickly. I joined Gold’s gym in Canada early 1986; hired Mr. Canada to train me and won my first show that year.

Was it a goal for you to compete in bodybuilding competitions right from the beginning or was it something that grew in your mind as time went on and you saw the progress in your body? I had the bodybuilding bug from the start, especially winning my first show.

What was your first competition and how did you place? 1986 Alberta Body Building Championships – 1st Middleweight

And which contest has been the biggest success for you yet? The 2004 Masters National Light Heavyweight Champion. I think each contest for me has been a stepping stone to a successful career.

Could you please add a history of all contests that you have entered so far?
Contest History:
2005 4th Masters National Light Heavyweight
2004 1st Masters National Light Heavyweight – over 35
2004 10th Junior Nationals – Light Heavyweight
2003 Overall, Masters Overall and Middleweight winner - Caveman Classics - National Qualifier
2002 1st Kentucky Bodybuilding Championships – Masters Overall
2002 2nd Kentucky Bodybuilding Championships – Heavyweight
1999 2nd Kentucky Bodybuilding Championships – Heavyweight
1996 2nd Battle of the Champions – Heavyweight
1996 Overall, and 1st Middleweight – Derby Classics Bodybuilding Championships
1987 4th IFBB Hawaiian International Championships (one of four on Canadian Team) - Heavyweight
1986 6th Western Canadian Championships – Middleweight
1986 1st Alberta Bodybuilding Championships – Middleweight

Please describe a typical day in the life of Tracy Beckham. I’m up at 6:30 am, as I personal train clients 6 days a week from 8 AM to 7:30 PM. I train between 4:30 and 7 PM depending on the day.

Please tell me something about your daily training routine. How often do you train in a week? I train 5 days a week in the off-season with maybe 3 days of light cardio a week.

What are the main differences when you train for a competition and in off-season? I train 6 days a week at contest time; more cardio at contest time – 5 days a week if needed.

Which bodypart is your best in your opinion? My Back and Delts

What is your favorite exercise in the gym and which one you don’t like so much? I love DB pullovers for Back; I don’t love doing biceps – such pain for a small muscle group!

Judging in Women’s Bodybuilding has always been criticised in one or the other way. Please tell me your honest thoughts about today’s judging in Women’s Bodybuilding. As an NPC body building, fitness/fiqure judge, I understand body building is about building muscle, etc. but females should not look like men and should try to maintain a feminine look from head to toe.

Please tell me about what else you are doing when you don’t work out (profession, hobbies, etc.) I enjoy movies, dinners out, dancing, travelling and spending time with friends.

What are your future plans for 2005/2006? I am competing in the 2005 NPC Masters National Body Building Championships July 23. I was the Light Heavyweight winner of this show last year and I am going back again, as the Overall winner can turn Pro!!

Please note:
Tracy does not do sessions or wrestling of any kind. Please don't ask!!

Collin Fischer Comparing Guns at Bay to Breakers 2007

This is FBB Collin Fischer, apparently at one of the many parties along the route of the San Francisco Bay to Breakers run, which annually draws between 50,000 and 70,000 people. Her bio says she lives in New York, so she must have flown out for the event.

Here's more about her, from Andy's website:

"I have only done 3 shows I won the NPC New York City Championship Overall in 95, The NPC Atlantic States (Bev Francis) Overall in 96, and then 1st place middleweight in Dallas 97 Nationals. I have been holding out since then for an invitation to the Ms. International which I finally got this year, but l thought with only 7 weeks notice I was unable to participate. I wrote back to Mr. Demilia in hopes of an invitation for this next year but as yet have received no reply. I am currently pursuing my undergrad in Biology and perhaps a minor in Chemistry or Biochemistry at Queens College.

With regard to my training routine, I try to get to the gym at least 5 days a week (unless I have an exam in Organic Chem). Before a contest I often train 7 days a week. It would be rather difficult for me to give you an exact schedule because my strategy is one of constant change. Variety in ones routine is truly the key to success, once your muscles have adapted to something change comes slowly if it comes at all. I recommend changing the exercises each time you train a body part. I also believe strongly that one should train each and every body part with equal intensity (and love), this includes calves forearms neck and lower back which seem often to be overlooked by many enthusiasts. Further, I prefer to train quads ,and then hamstrings and hips with a day break from legs in between. Otherwise you will lose the intensity that these groups demand toward the end of your training session and these groups will lag behind the rest. Finally, it is very important to train hips consistently and properly, I often see many professional bodybuilders who seem to be deficient in these areas. THERE ARE FOUR WAYS TO TRAIN HIPS adduction, abduction, flexion, and extension, it is essential to perform each of these exercises regularly.

I am now bartending at a club called "Infinity" in Long Island City, New York on Thursday and Saturday nights."
