WPWFV04 - The 1986 Ms. National Fitness and 1990 Muscle Beach Weekend Show
The 1986 contest, to the best of our knowledge, was the first ever fitness contest, promoted by Wally Boyko. The field of women featured traditional fitness women and also some bodybuilding crossovers, such as Liz Karp, Jeanne Splittgerber and Brenda Herrera. Other women include Debbie Hale, Toni Dee, Debra Stefan, winner Lynne Carpenter and Shirley Eason, who at 6'3" might be the tallest competitor ever. The picture quality is very good and the women are introduced in dresses, pose in bikinis and do routines. We cant remember much about the 1990 Muscle Beach show, but it seems like it was unsanctioned as it is a combination of figure, fitness and bodybuilding. The field of women included 'name' bodybuilders such as Shelly Beattie, Nikki Fuller, Etta Timmerman, Virginia Brady, Melissa Dick, Chris Adams. They, and the other contestants are introduced in evening gowns and pose in bikinis/heels. Note that the picture quality for this contest is great, but the microphone was very loud, making it hard to understand the MC. In addition to the two contests, we have one-on-one posting scenes with Dick and Adams, hitting the shots fitness/bodybuilding style in bikini and one dress.
