Featured Fitness Spotlight: Pauline Nordin

Hailing from Ystad, Sweden, Pauline Nordin is not your typical glamour model. While still a teenager, she found her inspiration at an early age on the cover of a fitness magazine. Rather than wait for opportunity to come knocking on her door, Pauline chased after her dreams with drive and determination and devoted her lifestyle to becoming a fitness athlete. She was competing in the bodybuilding circuit by the age of 20 and quickly got recognition for her beauty, physique and business savvy. Producers from the European version of "Biggest Loser" chose her to represent Sweden as the head trainer for her national team which she led to victory. She made the permanent move to Los Angeles in 2006 and has continued to expand her horizons as a model, trainer, competitor, and author. 
She penned "The Fighter Diet" which offers a no nonsense approach to fat loss and getting in shape. 
 
Pauline is known for her tough, no nonsense approach to working out, but you know what? She is living proof it works! 
 
We are glad to bring you Pauline Nordin as this week's featured model. Get to know her a little better after the jump.

 

Bellator 70 Highlights

Heading into their fight in "The Big Easy," Bellator Season 6 Lightweight Tournament finalists Rick Hawn and Brent Weedman dominated their competition through the first two rounds of the tournament. With an opportunity to face Bellator World Lightweight Champion Michael Chandler within reach, both men were eager to prove their status as the #1 contender. Throughout a fight engaged primarily on the feet, both fighters were able to land solid shots in front of an electric New Orleans crowd. However, it was the polished striking and the world-class takedowns of Hawn (14-1) that ultimately led him to victory. For three rounds, Hawn appeared to land the harder shots while Weedman (21-8-1) tried his best to deliver strikes of his own. However, it was not enough as all three judges awarded Rick Hawn a unanimous decision victory as he becomes the Bellator Season 6 Lightweight Tournament Champion
