The American Gladiator television show try outs came along and being the athlete Lori was, she blew away 50 other women trying out for the same position.
She then joined the team. She was branded “Ice” and for 9 years she was seen on national television and competing in live tours across the nation and abroad.

Lori Fetrick has always been a strong female, both physically and mentally. She has launched some very innovative businesses including Better Bodies, a chain of fitness facilities, South Beach Tan, a chain of tanning salons and a Real Estate publication. “I figured out a long time ago that I really enjoy the vision of a business or a company followed by the thrill of launching it.”
