Lola Montez is a Canadian IFBB Figure athlete and fitness model. Some of the shows Lola has won include the WBFF World Championships and Arnold Amateur.
Initially, though, Lola’s only goal was to get back in shape after having two children.
However, the more Lola trained, the more her love for fitness grew – leading her to become a full-time competitor and inspiration for other female athletes who follow her.
“I wish to inspire other everyday fitness enthusiasts and athletes alike, by showing that you can have a strong attainable physique naturally and feel sexy while doing it!”
“Fitness has always been such a positive impact on my life after having my two boys, and truly is my ultimate passion.”

Lola Montez trains 5-6 days per week to stay in shape for contests. She enjoys mixing cardio with weight training, along with stretching after workouts.
However, she doesn’t always lift heavy; instead, making every rep count by having perfect form.
Regardless of which body part she trains, Lola likes to add a few sets of leg exercises to every workout. In her words;
“I make sure to get at least one leg exercise in, no matter what body part I’m doing. Whether that’s at the beginning or end of that day. I just want to keep those legs working.” – Lola Montez

As a professional athlete, Lola is aware of the role that diet plays in her success.
She rarely ever ‘cheats’ and eats clean foods all-year-round. This allows her to quickly prepare for competitions.
Sometimes, when Lola wants to gain more muscle, she’ll increase her calories but will never sacrifice the quality of her food.
With that said, Lola doesn’t think everyone should follow a restricted diet. She suggests that people who don’t compete should enjoy a relaxed lifestyle, and treat themselves from time to time.
