Page-3 girl takes up bodybuilding

I find this story quite interesting, maybe also because I once stood next to Jodi Marsh, 32 (one of Britian's most famous page-3 girls) in a London club. She was once famous for her curves, but now her body is making the headlines once again, this time around, for very different reasons.She was seen showing off her new muscular body in the Natural Physique Association (NPA) Mike Williams Classic and Pro-Am Bodybuilding Championships last month. She has completely transformed herself.


In order to get the look she undertook a gruelling diet and exercise regime, actually shrinking her from a size 10 to a size 6. 

'This is the best I’ve ever felt, and the best my body has ever felt too. 'In just 50 days I have gone from 25 per cent body fat to 10 per cent body fat, gained 8 pounds of muscle, and lost 20 pounds of fat. In 8 weeks I have achieved what normally takes 6 to 9 months,' she said. 

Once again, this shows how closely the body and the mind are connected. Our bodies constantly drive our opinions about ourselves and makes us either super happy or self-conscious and depressed. With so much focus on the body, this is likely to result in an inevitable future, where the state of our body will always determine our state of the mind...

An interview with Jodi Marsh:
