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


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.

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.



“When it comes to my training, the basic movements have worked best for me.”


Cass enjoys training 6 days per week with heavy weights, always pushing her limits. She’ll mix up her workouts so her body doesn’t get used to a certain routine – sometimes performing 3-7 reps in sets of 4, but then performing up to 12-15 reps in other sessions.

Cass trains individual muscle groups every day, apart from leg days, as she believes her body responds the best to this. She works through 4 exercises per session, adding in super-sets occasionally.

Exactly, she is georgeous but clearly not natural. She didn’t go overboard with her roids just enough to look muscular as hell and still very feminine.

Great article. She is sooo inspiring. Also my wife follows her, and because of it, now we both train together.
Go Champ????

Wow, I’ve seen her videos, she’s very impressive and dedicated, wow, and she is so strong for her size, and she’s gorgeous. what are her stats ?

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,

Greatest Physiques

Thank you so much for this article! I’m a heavy weight lifter and get a lot of grief from my male counterparts to quit getting “big”. She’s what I aim to look like. Thank you for the inspiration

Hi Kit,

You’re welcome! Cass inspires us all to keep lifting and chasing our goals! Glad you enjoyed her profile!

All the best,


You’ll need to use steroids, she is not natural. Jamie Eason is mentioned as her inspiration, that women is natural. Use her as a standard to obtain.

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.

When i feel lazy…i just look at my wallpaper n i get innspire by just looking at her pics n workouts.I never miss her workout videos..i just it…so keep it up…????

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…?

U r so beautiful.u r strong girl with beauty.u have attractive physique.I love it.keep it up Cass.never give up.take care ur self……..,??

Hello Peter
As a champion bodybuilder and lover of all things Iron, I am quite offended at your statement. I have a question for you. Have you ever wanted to or been really good at anything? It amuses me how some people immediately credit the chemicals for the great results, yet there are people who abuse chemicals who will never get the look they desire because they depend upon the chemicals solely to produce the ascetically pleasing physique they desire. Pause. Since you like to condemn people and you are judge jury and executioner, I’ll ask another question… When you take your lazy ass to happy hour, are you not “enhancing” the cool that you lack? Here’s another, when you attempt sex with hopefully a person, I know your test levels suck, and your libido is non-existent because obviously your estrogen levels are through the roof, do you not reach for a little blue pill to enhance? Uhh huh see I knew it! Get yo ass to the gym and lift something and leave that lady be! Loser! Blessings….
Chems or not, the work still has to be done, and that is what deserves respect. I won’t argue about the usages etc. or how Steroids have actually been medically proven when used properly to assist in various health diseases and treatments, I will just say to please educate yourself on a subject before selecting reply. Trust me, you will be a much better person for doing so!

U r my favourite fitness model.. I really inspired to u… Nd ur physique.. Is awsm… I really want 2 meet u.. Cassandra martin..

Ela é linda, tem um corpo super definido e uma pele macia e bem clara, longos cabelos americanos, gostei muito, parece uma Campeã Olímpica, algumas eu andei encontrando no Rio de Janeiro – RJ em 2016 nas Olimpíadas, o que faz? Onde vive lá? gostaria de saber mais.

how come all these lifters eat hugh amount of foods that are high in cholestrol (beef,whole eggs,etc). is’nt it unhealthy. would like some clarification on it.

They may say she’s not a Natty. But look at her daily life. 😉 She works full-time in construction (gutting and renovating houses) and throws around 50 lb bags of concrete, drywall and beams at work . The gym is only part of her daily workout.

Good read. With all that food she must poop like an elephant. My girl has been trying to follow her lead and can’t eat all that. Cass is an inspiration to women everywhere.

Pete sounds like a jealous little queen. Is “using roids” your excuse for everything? Not that she works out religiously..or she has always been athletic.. or she works construction? Congrats douchebag, you’ve managed to suck at life. Enjoy your participation trophy.

I become a fan of cass yesterday. Because I joined jim before 2 month .I really need a role model for my jim workout and I start searching on web and finally I find it that is Cassandra martin absolutely she is awesome.
