  • Country: USA

As a 34-year-old American surfer who has been competing professionally since 2003, Anastasia has always had this uncanny ability to push boundaries in the male-dominated world of surfing.

I’ve watched her career with keen interest, and her resilience and ability to break stereotypes have always resonated with me.

In 2014, Anastasia Ashley appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, and ever since, there seems to be no end to the extremely hot photoshoots she’s involved in.

The 32-year-old Californian native has played in the USA and the UK and has had tremendous success in her international career both at the Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup. After all, she's an Olympic gold medalist.

I’ve followed Lolo’s career closely, and as a fellow athlete, I’m always inspired by her versatility. Whether it’s on the track or during the Winter Olympics, Lolo embodies the adaptability and resilience I always encourage my clients to go for.

The famous American hurdler has had a lot of success over the years.

Allyson started off her sprinting career by specializing in 200-meter events, but she later pivoted to 400 meters. She also played a key role in the women’s 4 x 400 meters events as part of Team USA.

As someone who understands the nuances of sprinting, witnessing her adaptability and excellence in real-time was both inspiring and a learning experience.

The 2012 London gold medalist has won seven gold medals, along with many silver and bronze, making her one of the most accomplished women in history.

The track and field athlete maintains her top form with a rigorous training regimen that includes weight training and sprints.

3 - Leticia Bufoni

  • Country: Brazil
  • Sport: Skateboarding

As a female skateboarder, Leticia took on a discipline that has always been dominated by men, but that certainly didn’t intimidate her.

She has an amazing athletic body, and her multi-racial background gives her an even more unique and appealing look.
