Tracy Meinhart: Newest Featured Contributor for FitGems Nation

Remember this name...Tracy Meinhart. While most of you are not familiar with her right now, I have a feeling you will be by the time the 2014 Jr. USAs roll around. 

Her first show: Complete. domination.

Tracy Meinhart is a NPC figure competitor, originally in Florida and now resides in Nashville, Tennessee. She first competed in 2013, and in all honesty, you couldn't have asked for a better first year in the amateur rankings. She won the Overall Open and Masters figure titles at the 2013 Hub City Fitness Quest, her show debut. It was my first show to attend, and I can tell you from personal experience, mouths were dropped when she stepped on stage. It was almost unfair to the rest of the competitors, and she was clearly heads and shoulders about everyone else who competed with her that day. She would end up following her big debut by competing in the 2013 NPC Tennessee State Show a few months later. She would win Overall Masters Figure and would take 1st place in the Open Figure Medium class, just barely missing the overall. The scary thing about that...she wasn't at her best at the NPC TN show and she did that good.  To say that 2013 was a heck of a year for the figure newcomer would be an understatement. 

Tracy now looks to the future with aims to become a IFBB Pro Figure competitor, as she will compete in her first National-level show at the 2014 Jr. USAs. Chances are high, but it won't be easy. We at FitGems are happy to announce that Tracy will be a featured contributor for our blog in the weeks and months ahead as she gets ready to compete once again. She will be posting photos and write-ups on this blog from time to time. We hope to have the first one from her soon. 

Look for this woman to do damage in the National figure scene next year!
