Michelle Lewin was born in Maracay, Venezuela and she’s currently based out of South Florida. Lewin first started her career with modeling at a very young age and aside from being a fitness model, she also graced the catwalk as a fashion model. The Venezuelan native didn’t let her 5’4″ stature stop her from sharing the ramp with much taller models either.
Being a fitness freak, she started taking hold and realized her potential and that investment of time in the gym to sculpt her body would lead her to do wonders in the industry. All this was seen by one of her close friends, who suggested Lewin enter the NCP bikini competition.
Michelle was also approached by many photographers, offering for her work with many famous modeling and fitness companies, and that was the time she emerged as a cover model.
She says: “A friend of mine encouraged to compete in the next NPC bikini competition so I gave it a shot. It was such a thrill to step on stage!”
Moving into Fitness Modeling
Lewin’s career is a true testament to what can be achieved with lots of dedication and hard work. She is an array of inspiration for many. She eventually moved away from the catwalks and modeling for cover magazines to shape her 95lb body into the solid, lean 120lb physique that has garnered so much attention.
“The abs started to show and I was enjoying the fitness lifestyle after months of intense training. Suddenly the modeling requests were coming from Fitness Magazines and Supplement companies.”
Michelle Lewin’s training consists of cardio and weight lifting along with a nutritious diet plan that yields superior results. Although she admits that it’s not always so easy. But her successful history and pictures speak that her training is the basis of her life and fitness.
Her biggest advice for optimal fat loss is to focus on HIIT (high-intensity interval training) which burns more calories. For this, you can choose any kind of exercise like squats, sprints, or pushups, and also any form of cardio. But make sure you keep the rest times short to keep your heart pumping.
Here’s her training schedule/routine:
- Monday – bicep and back workout
- Tuesday – leg workout (calves and hamstrings)
- Wednesday – triceps and shoulder workout
- Thursday – day off, relaxing
- Friday – full legs workout
- Saturday – working on chest
- Sunday – Preparing for the next week by getting a full day of recuperation and rest.
