Anastasia Rider

Anastasia grew up in Philadelphia where she pursued track, soccer, and football throughout high school. An all around athlete, she got into weightlifting and the gym in college.

Upon graduating she moved to Georgia where she worked in state law enforcement for 3 years.  During that time she joined a bodybuilding gym for the first time which was owned by a couple whom both competed.  The wife competed in the women’s physique division and this was the first time Anastasia ever got to see first hand a woman with substantial muscle and she fell in love.

Eventually she decided to move to Tampa where her and her husband opened their own gym to serve those at all fitness levels.

When she first started competing, she entered the figure division and did very well.  However her love of heavy weight and competitive nature caused her to eventually outgrow the figure division, so she moved up to women’s physique. Not too long after that, she outsized women’s physique as well and it was suggested she class up to women’s bodybuilding.  At first unsure if she had enough size at her height (5’10) she decided she would make sure she had enough size to be competitive as a female bodybuilder, and the rest is history.

Anastasia is particularly passionate about using fitness to empower women, and works as a coach, giving back as much as she can to the people she works with.  A competitor at heart, she loves competing in bodybuilding and also plays on a semi pro women’s tackle football team.

Andrea Shaw

As a girl, Andrea Shaw was seriously into gymnastics and competitive cheer.  She says that being athletic benefitted her both physically and mentally.  She loved it! Her mother is a nurse and formerly a personal trainer, and she encouraged Andrea’s athletic ambitions.  In fact, it was her mother who first got her to start working out at Powerhouse Gym.  Her mom’s training partner was a female bodybuilder and she began giving Andrea guidance on muscle building exercises when she was 17 years old.


“I had no desire to be a bodybuilder back then,” recalls Andrea, “I wanted to be a fashion model, but at 5’5” I wasn’t tall enough.  As Andrea continued her training in the gym she recalled coming across a fitness magazine and stated, “I came across Oxygen Magazine and saw it was full of athletic fitness and sports models.  So then that became my ambition.”


But Andrea is one of those women whose body started to respond quickly to resistance training and once she started intense weight training, soon people were asking her if she competed in muscle contests and if not, why not.  She didn’t see herself as having enough size and development to compete with the female bodybuilders she saw in the magazines but she liked the look of the figure competitors.  So in 2008 she entered her first figure contest and placed third.  “My problems was,” she recalled, “I had more muscle mass than the division called for.”  She entered another and higher level figure event and placed 4th.  But she still didn’t feel she was on the right path.


Andrea took a pause of about 8 years from competing, during which time she attended college, earning a BA in exercise and sports science and she continued to refine her resistance training. Then she decided to resume competing, and Andrea decided to switch to physique, entering a show in May of 2016, placing 4th.  “I felt much more comfortable in physique,” she says, “and in 2018 I entered five shows, earning my pro card at the NPC Nationals.”


But Andrea soon found she was not only too developed for figure, but for physique as well.  She competed in pro physique at the Toronto Pro in 2019.  At that contest she had an awakening.  She spoke to one of the judges, to Lenda Murray and Alina Popa and they all told her she looked more like a bodybuilder than a physique competitor and she ought to consider changing divisions.


So she entered the 2019 Chicago Pro as a bodybuilder, placing second by 1 point to the incredible Aleesha Young.  She knew she had obviously made the right decision.


Andrea says being a bodybuilder has been a tremendous relief.  She no longer had to hold back and restrain her muscular development.  She could diet for maximum hardness and definition without fear of going “too far” for the judges.  Finally, she felt she was where she belonged. “My legs, in particular, were just too big,” she says, “I tried over time to make them smaller, but nothing worked.  Getting into bodybuilding allowed me to create a better balance by further developing my upper body rather than reducing my legs.”


“I was particularly happy to be in bodybuilding because of Jake Wood and Wings of Strength.  Until the involvement of WOS bodybuilding there seemed to be no future in pro female bodybuilding.  No place to compete and nowhere to go, but thankfully Jake has changed all of that.”

Asha Hadley

Asha Hadley started weight training when she was in high school in Miami, where she also played softball and volleyball. After attending the University of Florida, she ran long distance and began competing in figure in 2011 when she was in her early thirties. But she quickly realized she was putting on too much muscle for the division, moved up to women’s physique, and turned pro at Nationals in 2012. For the next few years she competed regularly as a physique pro and, after relocating from Miami to Houston, made her Olympia debut in 2016 and placed ninth.

After that, Asha decided to take a break from competing, during which time she ran marathons. In 2020 she decided to make a comeback – but as a female bodybuilder. She realized she had now outgrown women’s physique and was excited by the way that Wings of Strength was marketing women’s bodybuilding – including, of course, bringing it back to the Olympia. She quickly put the size back on that she had lost during her four years off. At 5-foot-7 and at 171 pounds onstage, she won the Savannah Pro on her debut as a female bodybuilder and later that year placed seventh at the Ms. Olympia.

Now that she is a female bodybuilder, Asha no longer has to hold back in the gym. Known for her incredible delts and abs, she is now focused on putting on more size, especially in her quads and biceps. Looking back, she says moving up to women’s bodybuilding was “the best choice I ever made”. “I trained my ass off to fit that physique body that they wanted,” she says. “I was dieting really hard, cardio was crazy, and it was really stifling the natural progress. Now I’m a bodybuilder, I’m able to lift heavy, which I like to, and it allows me to grow naturally.”

Donna Williams Salib

Donna Williams Salib Aka “sis”

I am a happily married Coptic Orthodox Christian!

IFBB pro women’s bodybuilder

Live in USA

I began my journey in the fitness in 2006. As a single mother I knew it would take time, patience and Gods grace. I fought eating disorders as a teen and young adolescent. I wanted to be someone the youth could look up to and be inspired by. I wanted to influence the world and show it, despite the obstacles put in our way, that faith and hard work will result in achieving goals. I remember lifting concrete filled coffee cans with rebar that my dad had made and thinking one day I would be in the magazines like Lenda Murray and Rachel McLish. I started In figure in 2007 , to advanced to women’s bodybuilding in 2008. i won Kentucky muscle overall champ to go on to 2009 northern natural to win overall taking me to team universe and the national Stage experience with a less than favorable placing. I came home regrouped, changed coaches, and went back to work. 2012 I went to win overall in Indiana but knew I wasn’t ready for the national stage, and in 2015 my dream had been extinguished as the Ms Olympia no longer existed. I focused on strength training and competitive powerlifting to earn my Pro/elite status In the sport in 2013. I loved being able to compete with strong amazing women and challenge myself daily. I continued training diligently and was happy to hear that WOS was supporting women’s bodybuilding and bringing our division from the ashes . I was thrilled to know we had a platform to show case our artwork and share our love of the sport ! In 2017 I entered Kentucky state open, the only show in Kentucky to support women’s bodybuilding thanks to Gene Goode. This time I was using my husband as my coach and we won the overall title, that landed me at the North Americans three weeks later to earn my pro card with Ifbb.

I had the opportunity to meet the amazing team at WINGS OF STRENGTH at my pro debut at the 2018 Chicago Pro and I am so grateful for all they do for the athletes.

I served as a firefighter and paramedic up until 2010 and I have enjoyed being a personal trainer and strength coach since 2008. I currently serve as the event coordinator of Active Heroes Inc community center for our veterans. As a marines daughter, Air Force sister, and army mom, I am proud to work close with our veterans and military preventing suicides. ! I also stand at my husbands side as his valet in professional wrestling at OVW and enjoy the balance we have supporting one another’s dreams and ambitions. We make an awesome tag team there, and in anything we set out to do.

I love my huge family and my amazing husband , who have been so supportive on my journey. Gods blessings in my life are unmeasurable! The sky is the limit and love knows no boundaries!! Here is to an amazing future and making extraordinary memories!!
