Before-and-After Transformation on Instagram Maite Garcia

The Exercise That Transformed This Woman's Figure (and Booty)? Weightlifting!

If you're still afraid of weightlifting, let Maite Garcia prove just how much the workout can transform your body and help you feel empowered. The Spanish figure competitor and weightlifter told the Instagram account, "Some years ago I didn't know nothing about the fitness lifestyle. I ate everything I wanted and even I was slim, I had no tone even no curves." Then, Maite — known as @tesha_fitbaby on Instagram — found weightlifting. "After few years I got a toned and curvy body that has allowed me to win some regional and interreginal [sic] IFBB bikini contests."

Her advice to every woman? "To not be afraid from using weights," she said in the caption. On her own account, she reflected on her journey, saying (in Spanish), "There is no greater satisfaction than when you go to look at photos from years ago and you realize the evolution." So this is two-fold advice: start weightlifting, and take those "before" photos to keep you inspired!
