Why we chose her: Look at those abs! Take it from a pro: "Gina is showing that can live a balanced life and achieve great things. She's as dedicated as any fighter I know -- really hits her core training hard. And she punches as heavy as some men; believe me, she's sat me down a few times. But when it's over, she enjoys hanging out with her family and eating Italian food. She's just a normal girl. To me, that's what's inspirational." --Scott Bieri, Sparring Partner
