Michelle Lewin: Venezuelan Beauty with a Tight Booty

Major Distraction



These days, it’s hard for Michelle Lewin to leave the house without being recognized, thanks in part to a large following on social media— not bad for a girl who weighed in at only 90 pounds as a teenager! Michelle has a natural beauty that immediately captivates and draws you in, making you want to know more about this Venezuelan beauty...

AZ: Okay, tell us about your childhood?

ML: I grew up with my single mother in Maracay, Venezuela. My dad left the family when I was one year old, leaving my mother struggling economically. We had a hard time getting food on the table. I weighed 90 pounds when I was 17. Then the economy got better. I was able to work and go to school. We could finally afford proper food.

AZ: Do you come from a big family?

ML: My family is very big, but also very shattered. Lately, we are starting to get together again though.

AZ: What are your goals in the fitness industry?

ML: My goal is not to win the Olympia, or to be the best Bikini competitor. My goal is to be the biggest inspiration for the girls around the world.

AZ: I want to know what brought you into the fitness industry.

ML: I was doing a lot of glamour modeling, where abs are not priority. But since I was, and still am, a gym rat, the muscles started to show. I wasn’t really paying attention to the fitness industry, but the demand and attention was coming from there. After a meeting with the editor-in chief of Muscular Development Latino, Kit Sanderson, I knew my new destiny.

AZ: What kick-started your modeling career?

ML: Landing the cover of the Mexican edition of Playboy in 2012. Here in the U.S., I’m overwhelmed how girls give compliments.

AZ: Like what?

ML: Like … Oh my god, I love your legs! That doesn’t happen anywhere else but here. I never realized how big they were. I was totally blind. Now, I train legs a lot less, they were too big for bikini contests. My legs have streamlined quite a bit. What I really concentrate on is booty exercises.                                               

AZ: On that note, thank you and goodnight Michelle.
