Generation Iron Massy Arias

Strong. Independent. Motivational as hell.

When most people talk about female bodybuilding the image that comes to mind are hulking woman with physiques far larger than what you’d expect from an athlete of the fairer sex. Female open weight bodybuilding is no doubt impressive for competitors to actually put on massive muscle, something that is usually reserved for male athletes. But if you were to ask anyone, male or female alike, the aesthetics of a female open weight bodybuilder isn’t exactly the most desirable. Obviously an argument can be made against that, but I’m of the opinion that a woman can both be strong and still have feminine qualities.

Women like Iris Kyle deserve merit for their accomplishments, there’s no doubting that, but where classic female aesthetics are concerned, the build of the women in the open weight bodybuilding class isn’t exactly ideal. But women the likes of open weight class competitors aren’t the only females that are considered to be bodybuilders. Women in the physique, fitness, and even bikini divisions are also considered bodybuilders, albeit of a different ilk. There are also others who may not be serious competitors that still have great classical feminine physiques while at the same time having great strength and athletic ability in their own right. Massy Arias is all that and more.

Besides being natural beautiful, Massy is an athlete through and through. The L.A. based fitness trainer and Instagram icon has proven to be one those women a fitness enthusiastic gentleman would happy to have by his side. She’s strong, independent, and motivational. Hell, it’d be hard not to be into fitness with a woman like her by your side. With a play attitude and a serious dedication to improving herself and those around her, it’s hard not to admire Massy. Just check out the vid below and tell me she’s not the girl of your dreams.
