WWE.COM published a days ago an article about the Superstars & Divas with a bodybuilding past and they didn’t forget to our girl and Divas Champion ,Kaitlyn.
Being in prime physical condition is a requirement for any Superstar or Diva mixing it up in the squared circle. But several competitors have also showcased their amazing physiques on the bodybuilding stage. In addition to WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn, see who else had the drive and focus to get in phenomenal physical shape.
Bodybuilding claim to fame: Arnold Classic Figure Championship (top five placing)
WWE Divas Champion Kaitlyn got an early start in the world of bodybuilding, beginning her training at 18.
“I did really well in several NPC shows in Texas,” the Divas Champion said. “The first show I ever did, I trained all on my own and didn’t have a nutritionist or a trainer. I just loved bodybuilding and fitness ever since I was a kid. I placed 10th out of 20, which is pretty good for doing everything on my own at 18.
One year later, she came back and won the same show.
However, Kaitlyn’s favorite moment was competing in the Arnold Classic figure division at the amateur level. “I was the youngest competitor on stage,” she said. “Even though I didn’t win the show, I placed top five. Just being in the top five in the Arnold Classic — a huge international show that I was invited to — was such cool moment for me.”
Recalling the rigors of bodybuilding competition, Kaitlyn revealed her secret to success.
“A lot of people say the diet is the hardest thing. But once you commit to doing it, the diet just becomes routine. The hardest thing is staying mentally focused. Once you accept this [diet and cardio] is what you have to do, it’s easy. The second that you get out of the right mindset, it screws everything up.”
Certainly, Kaitlyn has figured out the key to success in WWE as well.
