Everything in her life was going wrong. She turned to strength training to get her out of the funk. Just one year later, she won her first fitness competition. Ten years as a professional bodybuilder, she is a two-time Ms. Figure Olympia who credits weight lifting with not only giving her physical strength but giving her emotional strength as well.
