As one can imagine this amounts to a very large sponsorship commitment for these athletes and allows them to focus even more on competition and making an even bigger name for themselves in the industry.
Genevieve will be competing for the second time with UFE when she takes to the stage at UFE Chaos in the Figure category. A gorgeous competitor with amazing potential in her physique, she looks to unleash that potential and come away with a top 5 finish which would qualify her for UFE’s Elite division.

Her conditioning is spot on and carries a perfect amount of muscle.
Marilyne was named one of UFE’s Spokesmodels in 2010 which earned her an all expenses paid trip to Las Vegas, courtesy of UFE. She then took 2nd place in the Figure category at UFE Chaos and won the Fitness Model category, qualifying for Elite in Figure and PRO in Fitness Model. She then traveled to the USA and dominated over 30 girls in the Figure category the next week to come away with a 1st place victory.

Pick up your copy to find her in her own 2 page spread where she talks about UFE! Congratulations Marilyne! You are quickly becoming a force in the fitness industry!

UFE’s Official Spokesmodel Featured on January 2009 Oxygen Magazine Cover
This is quite a success story for Sean Everingham and the UFE. While Sean was a trainer with Family Fitness in Hamilton, Ontario he noticed a stunningly beautiful young lady by the name of Ashley Harrison. Sean approached Ashley and told her that he thought she had the potential to do extremely well in fitness competitions and that he would like to train her. At the age of 18, Ashley placed a respectable top 15 among nearly 100 competitors in her first competition and was hooked.
At each show Ashley competed in, she continued to place higher and higher and Sean told her that one day, she would end up on the cover of Oxygen Magazine. When Sean began training in Mississauga, he and Ashley discontinued their training, but kept in touch. In 2007, at UFE’s inaugural event, UFE Halloween Mayhem, Ashley was a part of the competition and in addition to those who would walk away with top honours in each category, 1 person would be selected as UFE’s "Official Spokesmodel." and would represent UFE on all of our print material. The winner? Ashley Harrison! UFE was the first organization to realize Ashley’s true potential and when competing at the WBFF Championships in 2008,
Ashley was recruited to do a shoot for Oxygen Magazine. During this shoot, it was decided that Ashley would be the cover of their January 2009 edition…6 short years since Sean told Ashley she would one day make the cover of Oxygen. Ashley is not the only one that Sean told would be on the cover of Oxygen Magazine. Francisca Dennis is another young lady that Sean approached about the potential of doing well in competition and Fran has since gone on to be featured on the cover of Oxygen Magazine as well as in the magazine several times and is a top ranking figure competitor. Fran has also hinted that she may just decide to take to the stage at a UFE stage in the near future.
