Michelle Lewin is a famous Venezuelan fitness model and bodybuilder. She started her modelling career at a young age and soon realized that she possessed the potential to go beyond the catwalk and took part in several competitions including the NCP bikini competition. The next step she took was to hit the gym and sculpt her body. She began gaining attention and fashion photographers started approaching her for modelling for big companies in both the fitness and the modelling industry. She also became a cover model on several magazines including ‘Playboy.’ Today, she is among the most sought after fitness models in the entire world. Michelle is also a YouTube star and a popular social media personality, with more than 9 million Facebook page likes, 13 million Instagram followers, 430k Twitter followers, and 346k YouTube subscribers as of April 2018. Although she likes to pose in tiny bikinis and booty shorts, posing in the nude is not her style as she feels it’s not necessary.
Michelle Lewin grew up in poverty and had a difficult early life but her life started improving after her marriage to a bodybuilder. Encouraged by her husband, she started pursuing a career in modelling. She traveled to Milan, Rome, and Barcelona, and contacted several fashion agencies. However, she was turned down numerous times for her short height (5 foot 4 inches). They also objected to the freckles she has on her chest and asked her to get them removed.
She then decided to get into bodybuilding and become a fitness model. In 2013, she took part in five NPC competitions, and in 2014, she was a participant in five IFBB competitions. She won many competitions including the NPC Fort Lauderdale Cup. She also became the Latin Queen of the fitness scene, and appeared on more than 30 magazine covers including ‘Playboy,’ ‘Oxygen,’ ‘Inside Fitness,’ and ‘Muscle & Fitness.’ Her strong social media presence boosted her popularity even more.
