Christa Bauch Spotlight

Christa Bauch
I was born in Bad Schandau, formerly East Germany, December 19th 1947. I enjoyed music, riding and athletics (sprinting) at school, before training as a masseuse. At age 27 I left East Germany to settle in the West - not over the wall, but legally, having married a West German citizen. My three kids gave me plenty to do, but I felt unfulfilled. I took up rifle shooting for a couple of years - with reasonable success - before finding the answer in bodybuilding.

I'd always had a complex about my figure. I really wanted to look like a contemporary woman, with long slender legs and a big bust. It was impossible for genetic reasons. Through bodybuilding I have been able to get away from that by making the most of the physical structure I was born with. My self-confidence has increased enormously and I like the way I look now.

In 1993 I got to know Robin Parker in New York when we did Laurie Fierstein's show "Celebration of the Most Awesome Female Muscle in the World". I was very impressed with her personality, her physique and her way of life. She taught me how to wrestle and find out that I'm a good arm wrestler. I always had fun working for her - for "Physical Culture".

In the past my goal was to compete in the "Ms. Olympia". I competed in the "Ms. O." in 1993 and 1994. Now I don't have a special focus. I will keep training my muscles always to stay strong and in good shape, because I like that and a lot of people like big muscles, too. Perhaps one day I'll come back on stage.... who knows?

Celebrity Muscle Morphs

Eva Mendez
Everyone loves celebrities.  Female muscle fans wonder what would they look like with muscle? The question can be answered with the aid of Photoshop.

Ever wonder what Megan Fox would look like with muscle? Download your favorite celebrity headshot and your favorite bodybuilder photo... poof, instant celebrity with muscle. While most morphers are hobbyists and not professional Hollywood retouchers, Photoshop is the main program used by both. The software basics are fairly simple to use but it takes some talent & ability to make them look realistic.

This gallery shows images from different artists (not including Area Orion) and there are many others out there. Image copyrights and fair use aside, these are all done for fun in the fantasy world of Female Muscle.
