Female bodybuilders: Society – Dating – Muscularity

 

tumblr_n87d2he76e1rlddepo1_500

Many female bodybuilders will attest to ‘standing out like a sore thumb’ in a crowd and being starred at by men and women. Some will even joke that they are often treated like “aliens”. It’s typical that even if female bodybuilders’ physiques are privately admired by men and women, many will still judge them publicly. Female bodybuilders especially are ridiculed on anything, from their muscles to their character. Usually the ridicule is solely based on their muscles. People often think that because a female chooses to adorn muscles, her character is automatically flawed. Truth is, these women are rarely given a chance of getting to know them before being scrutinized. This mindset of society alone may be one of the most intriguing reasons why some men are fascinated with female muscle.

If given the opportunity to date a bodybuilder, most male muscle lovers would jump at the chance. Of the men who have had relationships with female bodybuilders, they will tell you that dating them is not much different than dating a “normal woman”. They feel that female bodybuilders are normal women too who just happen to be in a sport which requires muscularity. These are “women and not aliens” and love the same things that most women love in a man and otherwise.

‘More Than Bodybuilding': State Champion Shares Inspiring Story

MelissaFanning01

Six years ago, Melissa Fanning took her now 13-year-old son to an aquarium during a beach trip. When he started running up a ramp to see the dolphin exhibit, Fanning—who weighed 280 pounds at the time—couldn’t keep up.

“I told him to go without me,” she remembered. “The look on his face was just disappointed.”

Fanning credits that moment with motivating her to make a change and get in shape.

Last month, she was named Ms. Alabama Female Bodybuilder in the statewide bodybuilding competition. One month earlier, Fanning competed in her first competition, where she won overall female bodybuilder in the Body B One show in Phoenix City.

By Elizabeth Narins

GinaPolicastro01

Gina Policastro, 28, is a Queens, New York-born earth science teacher who works at a high school in Manhattan. She’s also an eight-time National Physique Committee competitor who’s placed 12th in three different national competitions, and is currently training for two upcoming shows.

Cosmopolitan.com recently talked to her about what it takes to go from the classroom to the stage in a bikini — and how she sculpts her body leading up to competitions.

Have you always been interested in fitness?

I always liked being active. As a kid, I did dance and gymnastics, and then cheerleading in high school and college. When I was in high school, I had a boyfriend who liked to work out, so I would go to the gym with him and his friends about twice a week. I think we just figured things out using pictures on the machines. I had no formal training, just picked things up along the way.
