The Flying Finnish Fitness Beauty: Minna Pajulahti

By Kaisa Piippo

Minna Pajulahti is a 25 year old fitness competitor from Finland. She has been competing in fitness for five years and is hooked on the sport in and out. Or what do you think – how many flight attendants do you see living such organized live that competing in fitness demands? When she’s not flying around the world, she also works as an aerobics instructor. Another dear hobby of hers is cheer dance, which includes jumps, pirouettes and dance moves. She competes at national and international level in a team called Dream Team Dancers.

Minna lives in a small town called Nokia with her two dogs. She likes to be around people and her family and says,  “I have two brothers and two sisters. Two of them are younger than I and two are older, so I am the one in the middle. My family is very big part of my life so it is nice that also my mother and father live near me. I have met many of my good friends while doing sports and I mainly see them in practice or in the gym.  My family and friends have been a great support during these years that I have been competing.”

Lisette Valdes: Miami Heat

SONY DSC“I stay lean all year long because I diet and maintain my training the same. I only change the intensity depending on my competition status. Off season, I diet as I would for a show with the exception that I do not boil my chicken twice in distilled water before I eat it (just once in regular water off season) or occasionally I may not eat boiled but instaed baked chicken,” she says.

“Off season I may allow myself to enjoy cashew nuts, maybe some great salad dressing on my salads that may contain deadly amounts of everything, but salad dressing is a gift to have!”

Jamie Hope Pollack: Competing Over 40

Jamie Hope Pollack - NPC- National Level Masters Bikini Competitor I decided to join a gym and hire a personal trainer as a 40th birthday present to myself. I buy myself a birthday present every year and as it was my 40th I wanted it to be something special and meaningful. I had clothing, shoes, bags, sunglasses and jewelry. I wanted something that would be for me. I thought about it and came to the realization that I had been living a pretty sedentary life for many years. I drove to work, sat in my office, drove home, and sat on the couch in front of the TV after work. I had not done anything physical in quite some time. I said to myself that I was not getting any younger, it wasn’t going to get any easier, in fact it would only get harder as time went on, and I better do something to be more active.

Lotte Bendix: MuscleMom!

lm10Can you tell us a little about yourself, your daily day training why you started training etc?

Since I was about 9-10 years, I have been deeply fascinated by the muscles, it’s probably started with the first television series on The HULK. When I was about 11 years was my only wish for Christmas, a 5-kg dumbbell and I was so sure that my mom bought it for me, the disappointment was huge when I did not get it. I chose to save my pocket money for even being able to buy it, and so I did! My knowledge on the sport was minimal and it was not so much. I have not just grown much exercise in elementary school, but when I got to high school it started to come. We had sports day and I joined the weightlifting. I was introduced to the sport through Lillerød Weightlifting Association, where they had set up a team of girls who would strength train. It was not long before I asked for permission to get on the team with the men, because I thought that the girls spent more time gab than to train, totally frivolous. I moved up to the men and began to happen a bit with my body. After a year, I chose to become a member of the ordinary. Gym in Birkeroed. , I worked on the body and took part in the championships begin, and DM. My best position was 3rd place at DM in the late eighties. Unfortunately, I was too focused on career and the sport came at a low level. I was employed in Q8 as business manager, and quickly became both superuser and teaches accounting, although I no education.

Nicole Wilkins: 4-Time Miss Figure Olympia

Nicole Wilkins
For as long as I can remember, I have always been athletic. I started with ballet when I was five, then moved on to dancing and cheer leading. Growing up, I was usually outside riding bikes or climbing trees – you would rarely catch me inside playing with dolls.

My competitive career started early, when I dove into gymnastics at age seven and continued through high school as a gymnast and track and field standout. But it was two unfortunate events in particular that led me to another area of interest – the weight room.

The first happened when I was 15, when I tore the medial meniscus in my left knee and had to go in for surgery. Since I was still young, the doctors decided to try to stitch the injured area instead of removing the torn cartilage. Many months later – which included six weeks on crutches – I was finally back to normal … at least I thought. I was wrong. One year later, the tear was back, and worse.
