About September 2017
On this month’s cover are the top-three Tier 1 Pro women’s athletic physique winners from the 2017 Physique Canada National Classic, which was held July 15 in Gatineau, Quebec. They were (left to right): Carole Wathier (second), Marie-Odyle Picotte (first), and Virginie Roy (third).
Women’s athletic physique is unique to Physique Canada – no other organization has the discipline. With athletic physique, the judges look for a highly athletic yet feminine combination of muscularity, definition, and body shape. For Marie-Odyle, who placed second at the 2016 National Classic, it was her first Tier 1 Pro win – and she is working hard for the 2017 Canadian Championships, on October 14, to prove that it won’t be her last. Congratulations to all.

Since 2012, our most popular annual feature has been the presentation of the Top 10 Fitness Models for the year. Once published, tens of thousands or readers from around the world visit us to see who was picked. Now that we are in our fifth year for this annual selection, we expect the number of readers to be at an all-time high.
This year’s ten include some women who have been selected in previous years, yet also includes women who are being featured for the first time. What’s important to know about the list of winners is that it is not ranked internally – there is no number one, two, three, and so on. Instead, all ten are the winners, which is why they’re simply shown in the gallery below alphabetically by last name.
As in previous years, most of the winners’ photos were taken by Paul Buceta, who is widely considered to be the world’s best fitness photographer. But not all were taken by Paul – three of this year’s photos are from photographers Taylor Oakes and Brian Reilly. We thank all of these photographers for their great work.
With that introduction complete, we’re now proud to present the Top 10 Fitness Models of 2016: Amélie Brisebois, Jenna Chadwick, Jennifer Lambert Foster, Rhiana Hogan, Jess Kanstrup, Amélie Levesque, Emilie Provencher, Sybil Sophia, Katherine Turcotte, and Edith Werbel.
Congratulations to all!
