Monique Minton in Flex Magazine

monique minton,flex

So I was in Barnes and Noble yesterday and I was looking at the magazines and my eyes landed on this month's Flex Magazine.
And look who is on the cover!
Yes, right there on the right hand side of the cover is our very own Monique Minton.
Okay, she's not "our" very own, but I have done write ups on her here and on my other fitness blogs.
This is the second time the beautiful Monique has appeared on the cover of Flex that I know of.

Flex has also put up some of their videos from the making of their swimsuit issue here.

Linda Minard

linda minard, actress

This beautiful young lady is Linda Minard.
She is an actress and fitness model born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in Monterey Bay, California.
Now I hope you are sitting down reading this.
Linda is married and the mother of four children!
And she is almost forty!
That should inspire anyone out there!
And talk about active, she has tried her hand at Judo, Karate, tennis, shot-put, discus, triple jump, hurdles, sprint relays, cheerleading, mountain biking, snowboarding, trapeze catches, rock climbing, adventure running, and natural bodybuilding.
Is that enough?

As far as her acting goes, she is in a movie with Steven Seagal called "Driven to Kill" and is working on another film called "The Red Rooster".

She earned her Pro card at the 2008 FAME Canadian Nationals and I'm hoping we see a lot more of this lady up on the stage and the screen.

You can find out a lot more about Linda by visiting her website here:

Denise Paglia

Another former ESPN beauty, Denise Paglia.
Denise was very popular in the fitness magazines in the 90s, and her fame has carried over to today.
As popular though as this beautiful lady is, I really cant find much info on her.
I read that she was of Japanese and Italian descent.
She is sometimes listed as Denise-Paglia-Cole.
Denise is a Certified AFAA Fitness Trainer.
Besides Fitness Beach, she appeared on Cyberfit and Bodyshaping.
As female fitness competitor, Denise placed in the 1992 and 1993 Fitness America National Pageants, and she came in 5th at the 1995 Fitness Olympia.
She was on the cover of the very first issue of the fitness magazine Muscle & Fitness Hers.
Sadly, I can't find a MySpace page for her.
