I first met Nina Tonnu in May of 1995 while competing in the USPF Masters National Championships in Seattle, Washington. Nina and I started a relationship that due to the 2300 mile distance between us, was somewhat difficult to maintain. Soon, I flew out to Seattle and Nina and I made the long trip back to Beavercreek Ohio where we now live and are engaged to be married later this year. Nina has a Bachelor of Science degree from Western Washington University and is a health and fitness fanatic.
She entered her initial fitness competition in 1993 placing 2nd in the Ms Fitness Oregon. Nina was crowned Ms Fitness Washington State a year later. This past year Nina placed 2nd in the Miss Fitness Mid-States qualifying her for the Ms Fitness USA Nationals to be held in California the week of March 24, 1997. The top 5 finishers will compete in the Ms Fitness Universe March 30.
