Her name may not be familiar to some readers, but many will remember Gabriela Anton as one of the models featured in IRONMAN's last Fantasy Workout pictorial (September '02). Other than that, however, you probably haven't seen much of her. That's about to change. On the following pages she unveils a body worthy of recognition.
Gabriela has made an impressive start in competition, having won the Overall Figure title at the '02 NPC California Championships, and by the end of the year this Guadalajara-born siren plans to be a pro figure competitor. She's training hard to make that happen while also working as a personal trainer and aerobics instructor. Oh, and to top it all off, Gabriela is the mother of an 11-year-old daughter, Paulina.
No doubt about it: This exotic beauty's got the drive to succeed, and after you check out her photos, you'll agree that she's destined for pro figure greatness.
