“I saw a few girls like Jamie Eason and Dana Linn Bailey, and thought it would be really cool to look like them.”

Biography

Construction Worker

Although Cass had always been naturally lean growing up, she wasn’t always a fitness enthusiast as a child. She also wasn’t the typical teenage girl; she was more interested in sports and hobbies more commonly associated with boys her own age.

After graduating from College, Cass began working as a full-time construction worker alongside her boyfriend.

Inspiration

Cass had always been aware of the fitness industry due to her partner’s keen interest in it. However, she only found the desire to sculpt her dream physique after seeing female bodybuilding icon, Jamie Eason, on the cover of a magazine.

This was the first time she’d seen a muscular female physique, and immediately, she became inspired to get lean, and gain muscle mass. At this point, Cass set her sights on building a figure similar to her fitness icon’s body – at the age of 23, she began training in the gym.

Through hard work, determination, and the help of her fitness-obsessed boyfriend, Cass made serious progress to her figure.

Lifting Heavy Weights

After venturing into the world of bodybuilding, it wasn’t long until Cass had become aware of the legends of the sport. She saw a video of Ronnie Coleman lifting weights and was inspired by the brute force of the Mr. Olympia legend.

Becoming fascinated by Ronnie’s strength and charisma – she knew that she wanted to increase her lifts. It was at this point, when Cass began training with heavier weights to achieve her new goal.

Fitness Journey

A couple of months later, Cass’ fascination for bodybuilding had peaked – she’d fallen in love with working out.

She began following the journey of fitness athletes on social media in her spare time – Cass was motivated by the intense training sessions of other fitness models, and how they managed to retain their femininity during their workouts.

She began to idolize female athletes such as Dana Linn Bailey – respecting how Dana presented herself, not needing to expose herself sexually, but purely through her training in the gym and work ethic.

For the next year, Cass continued to develop her physique. After realizing her goal of building a powerful figure, it wasn’t long until she was recognized for her aesthetics.

Online Sensation

At the start of 2016, Cass created an Instagram profile, aiming to spread her passion for fitness with others. However, she didn’t expect to receive such a reception; almost immediately, she started to attract fans, with many fascinated by how she was able to stay feminine while being muscular and strong.

By the end of 2016, Cass had gained masses of online followers. As a result, she’s become arguably the biggest female fitness sensation in the modern era.

Due to her passion for bodybuilding, Cass is now admired on bodybuilding forums all over the internet. This is just one of the places where she inspires a huge fan-base to begin their fitness journey, and to lead a healthy lifestyle of their own.

    Ain’t no way she initially ate that type diet to build muscle…maybe when she cutting but there Is no complex carbs and she has lot muscle…she would had no energy to lift those heavy weights.

      Hi Bethany,

      Thanks for your comments!

      You’re absolutely right, to build muscle, complex carbs can play an important role when looking to build muscle mass. We’ve done a little digging to find Cass’ bulking diet, this time around, it contains more carbs.

      Thanks again for your comments.

      All the best,

    Inspirational and doesn’t have to be overly sexual and half naked while showing us her results.I just started back weight lifting and a few powerlifting routines..far from my goals but with God’s help I will achieve them. I need motivation bc no on else I know is training.

    I can do all things through Christian Jesus who gives me strength.

    Always Take up one idea. Make that one idea our life-think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success…and i get that idea by just looking at u…😊
