Whatever they are called — "men in skirts", "iron ladies", "mountains of muscles", "women-men" and so on… But, despite all the insults and condemnations from the public, these strong and brave women continue to do what they love and achieve impressive success in it.
Below you will see photos of the most famous women from the bodybuilding world. Of course, appearance is a matter of taste, but their desire to go to the goal can definitely be envied!
Danish-American bodybuilder Helle Trevino began to get involved in sports at the age of 3. At first, the girl was engaged in gymnastics, then there were ballroom dancing, swimming, athletics, shot put, martial arts, horse riding, boxing, cycling, yoga and even ballet! But at the age of 17, Trevino realized that she was created for bodybuilding, and since then they have been inseparable.
Can you believe that the woman in the photo is 48 years old? We are not either, but the numbers in the passport of the Canadian bodybuilder do not deceive. The key to Melissa Coates' beauty, strength and youth is an active lifestyle. The athlete is engaged in wrestling, is fond of bodybuilding, conducts workouts in the gym, moonlights as a fitness model and even tried herself as an actress a couple of times.
Once we already wrote a detailed post about this strong girl from Engels, but it's a sin not to mention Julia Vince again. On the web, she has long been nicknamed "The Hulk with the face of Barbie", but these insults do not bother Julia — she continues to do what she loves and improves her body the way she wants. And a Russian woman owns her own coffee shop — you can also read about this on our website.
Nina Zavadskaya is a vivid proof that bodybuilding is not always equivalent to the loss of femininity and sexuality. The vice-champion of Arnold Classic Europe in ordinary life is a loving wife and caring mother. She herself admits that her main happiness is peace and harmony in the family, and bodybuilding is a huge passion and a way of self—realization.
Over the 12 years of her sports career, Natalia Kuznetsova managed to set a record in the bench press and deadlift, become an international—class master of sports in bodybuilding and armlifting, win many championships and, most importantly, come to the form that you see now in the photo. Many criticize Natalia and call her "Hulk's girlfriend", but she has already learned not to pay attention to the opinions of others.
Alexandra Rudenko started playing sports professionally about 10 years ago, but during this time she managed to significantly transform. Looking at a woman's body during the competition, you begin to envy her dryness and tightness. Of course, Alexandra looks a little different in the offseason.
Natalia Bystrova's peers, looking at her, nervously bite their elbows! The woman recently turned 51, and she is actively engaged in sports, conducts personal training, takes prizes at bodybuilding championships and moonlights as a model. And the most amazing thing is that Bystrova made herself! When Natalia was 19, she came to the gym and began to get acquainted with all the equipment on her own, try different exercises and improve her body step by step.
This 41-year-old bodybuilder is considered one of the most famous athletes in Romania. By the way, the surname "Popa" is not uncommon in Romania and has about the same meaning as the Russian "Popov". Like many others, Alina started with simple workouts in small sports clubs and programs that were viewed in foreign magazines. But now Alina is a multiple champion who boasts a steel press, a powerful shoulder belt and strong legs.
And how do you feel about such women?
