Barbie Guerra has surmounted incredible challenges to become a successfully Figure Competitor. When she was 2-1/2 years old in Pasadena, TX she climbed up onto an electrical transformer and grabbed some wires. Her arms were burned so badly that they had to be amputated, and she sustained scarring on her legs. Despite doctors odds that she would not live she not only survived but thrived. She became fascinated by fitness competition and began entering competitions. Some of her results include: 2007 Arnold Classic Amateur Fitness B, 7th Place; 2006 Heart of Texas, 2nd; 2005 Western Regional, 5th; 2004 Western Regional, 2nd. Barbie balances her fitness career with a husband and four children. Visit Barbie at www.fitnessunarmed.com.
