Fit Ladies Rock! Frumpy & Domestic to Miss Bikini

I picked Arnold Schwarzenegger, not as governor of California ( I voted for the other guy). But I did pick Arnold as a model for my fitness journey. As a kid, I watched everything involving Arnold, from the Conan series to Pumping Iron, if it had Arnold in it I was watching it. The funny thing is that after watching him on television I would go to my room and do push ups and flex in front of the mirror. That was me then…well I still flex in front of the mirror now. What can I say? I enjoy everything muscle. My point is that my model of fitness and my desire to change my body as a teen came from a fitness role model.

When it comes to ladies, who inspires you to go beyond and get better? There is a growing number of female athletes and fitness professionals and this is great because there is hope for the younger generations. No longer do young ladies have to scour the planet to find someone to inspire.  Check out Jennifer Nicole Lee as she shows how she lost 70 pounds and became Miss Bikini America.
