Haute Power Couple

Move over Brad & Angie, you don't hold a candle to Jesse and Shane Vizenor!

Jess became an HP girl in the summer of 2010 when she was prepping for her first bikini competition. That fall she went on to take 2nd place in bikini short during the FAP Midwest show in Chicago.  After her first appearance and success on stage, she had the bug! We then trained her for the NPC Upper Midwest, where this beauty took 3rd out of ten girls who posed very stiff competition (I'd never seen so much talent at a local show and there was Jess, catching the judges' eye and being rewarded with a trophy!). There's no stopping this girl--she is currently training for a national Fitness America show to be held in Las Vegas, NV this November. This is the big leagues, folks, and she's ready for it! She will also be joining forces with nationally recognized fitness coaches at Cathy Savage Fitness to help enhance her competition prep. This show will be available via live webcast at  on November 18th and 19th. Keep an eye on this woman, it won't be long before we'll be saying we knew her when...
Jesse's husband Shane is no slacker either! He was up for the HP challenge as well and has been right there supporting Jess through her journey to the stage both times (really, we even had him running for tanning supplies!). Beyond Shane's commitment to helping Jess succeed and leading his own fit lifestyle, he also has a pretty cool "hobby" of his own. He was selected to compete in Smokin' Wheels Competition in Guam this past April where he took first place. This trip was not only eventful because of Shane's very respectable placing, but also because this is where the couple celebrated their nuptuals before returning home!
You'd think they might be ready for some down time after so many exciting events, but they turned around and headed right to California where Shane and his buggy "Lil Nasty" showed 'em how it was done again in The Top Truck Challenge 2011 where he took home Judge’s Choice Award & People’s Choice Award! The whole event will air on the Outdoor Channel in November and it will also be in the December Issue of Four Wheeler Magazine.

These two are such a great example of what can be achieved when one surround themself with positive and supportive people. Here's wishing them the best of luck for their remaining 2011 goals and all that the future holds for them!

Meet Our New Strength Coach

Welcome Coach Carmen! She's no newbie around HP---you're all familiar with her leading those crazy Wednesday Workouts in my absence as well as bronzing up your killer bods with a great spray tan! She's now taking on a new role and new challenge as strength coach for Haute Physique. She will be helping to write monthly workouts for our clients and contributing to this very blog with new exercise and health tips--all while maintaining her other HP duties! This girl loves to be busy!

Carmen is a 2010 graduate from the University of North Dakota with a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science and Wellness, and minor in Health Education. She currently works as events coordinator for our own UND Sioux men's hockey team. She is an avid runner, weight lifter, and golfer and was a star athlete in golf as well as soccer and hockey at Crookston High School. She has been the assistant coach for the Red River Girl's Soccer team for the last three years. This past March, she got on stage at the NPC Upper Midwest and rocked her first ever bikini competition! She continues to seek new challenges and recently set a new personal best at the Fargo half marathon in May. At the end of this month she will be competing in an inline marathon right here in Grand Forks and also participating on a kickball team (while recovering from a elbow fracture nonetheless!). Gotta love the energy of a true HP girl!

Get ready for her to rock your body this fall with some kickin' workouts that all of you Haute Physique folks know and love!
