7 Incredible Female Fitness Models and Their Training Routines

As a self-professed fitness freak with a passion for physiques, I have decided to share with you, my readers, my favourite female physiques of all time. Here are my seven favourite fitness models from three different corners of the world. 

What I decided to share was not just their incredible physiques but their training and diets so that you can get a glimpse of just how hard they have worked to look the way that they do and become successful in their fields. 

This list is not in order of preference because you will notice that each woman has a different aesthetic, look and style that makes them each unique. 

Cultural differences aside, they have each worked so hard to attain a healthy and curvy figure, so that is why I chose to write about them. Enjoy.

She is an also an avid fan of carb cycling, she believes that diet is 80% of the equation and her body really is a testament of how disciplined she is in that domain.

Her Training Style: Sagra is known as an aesthetic athlete meaning that she focusses less on performance and more on the definition, shape and symmetry in her body. She is known for being the best aesthetic fitness model in the world. She therefore trains by body part, her focus is on physique so her fitness is mainly lifting weights. She is known for her shredded abs, my duty is to my readers so I should mention that achieving and maintaing Sagra’s level of aestheticism is highly difficult to maintain if not involved in the fitness profession. She still is a remarkable example of how hard work and nutrition can mold the female body into something highly aesthetic.
