Rachel Baker has competed in the physique short class at 4 pro qualifiers this year and each time placed next to women who turned pro.


2011 NPC Jr USAs - 2nd place (class winners turn pro)
2011 NPC Jr Nationals - 2nd place (class winners turn pro)
2011 NPC Team Universe - 3rd place (class winners & runner ups turn pro)
2011 NPC Nationals - tied with Kim Bell for 3rd place (class winners & runner ups turn pro)
She'll continue her quest for a pro card in 2012...

Thanks Jason! You've always been very supportive and its much appreciated. I just missed it again (4th place) but it's ok because I'll be back! I had a blast at Nationals and am so excited at the interest that WPD has generated. It's good for the division and great for the sport.


She didn't know at the time when she wrote the above that she tied with Kim Bell for third place. :)

She is definitely pro material. It is only a matter of time and she will turn pro.

Rachel's time is coming. I have a feeling she WILL become a pro in 2012. :)

Indeed she has. She placed 9th in her class at the 2010 NPC Team Universe. She's also competed in bodybuilding, placing 8th in the LW class at the 2010 Masters Nationals.

WPD seems to be a great fit for her. I also like her hair in the above WPD pictures. I'm sure she'll get that card!

She was an IFPA Pro Figure girl... she rocked in the IFPA; consistent with her first place wins. :o)

I saw her at JrUSAs and Team U...I think she has a beautiful physique and am baffled why she hasn't won!!!!!!!!!

Thanks everyone for your supportive comments. I do (strongly) agree that I need to work on my posing and my lat spread. I've got a laundry list of things I want to improve on and address before I get on stage again in 2012. It is disappointing to keep missing the pro card but, my cup being half full, my placings have remained consistant and I'm grateful for that. I'll continue to work on my physique and presentation and we'll see what 2012 holds!

Once again Rachel placed 2nd. One placing away from a pro card. Amazing! Rachel Baker placed 2nd in physique short at the 2012 NPC Jr USA Championships. :)

I am surprised they didn't allow top 2 in every class get their pro card but she will get it at the next show I am sure!!
