From Model to Fitness Model

Michelle, who started out as a traditional model, found her way to fitness modeling. "I've been modelling for a few years, and a part of my job was to stay in shape. I loved it and it led me to became a total gym rat. After months of intense training the abs started to show and I was enjoying the fitness lifestyle. Suddenly the modeling requests were coming from Fitness Magazines and Supplement companies," she told Simply Shredded. "A friend of mine told me to compete in the next NPC bikini competition so I gave it a shot. It was such a thrill to step on stage!"
