22-year-old Julia is 5’5’’ and weighs around 135 pounds. At the same time, the 'fragile' girl squats 445 lbs, bench presses 220 lbs, and deadlifts 360 lbs! One can’t but wonder, where is such strength coming from?

Not every male athlete is that bulked up!

In 2015, Vins became International Master of Sport in Powerlifting and she says she started working out at the age of 15. Her goal was quite common: the girl wanted to become stronger and more confident in herself. But then there was no competent coach around and she didn’t achieve the desired result.

In 2012, Julia took up powerlifting, and, according to her, it was the best choice:

That year completely changed my outlook and concept of beauty. There are many people who like me, and even more people who are annoyed with my success. Progress inspires me, I stopped paying attention to others. I set goals and achieve them, and with that my body changes. I like the way I look.

Julia receives a lot of negative comments about her appearance, but she got used to them. She is convinced that everyone should look as they see fit, and fragile, tender girls are nothing more than a stereotype:

Everyone should be the way they want to be - thin, athletic, slim - it doesn’t matter, you can be anything you want.

Now Julia is completely satisfied with her appearance and this is exactly what she wanted. She advises all the newbies to find a good coach. She thinks that if your body doesn’t become better after months of training, you need to look for a new coach.

In many ways, the results depend on proper nutrition, which a coach will also help to choose based on your parameters and the desired result.

I used to be a shy girl with a whole lot of self-esteem issues. Now I am a confident girl who can express her opinion when I need to. Thanks to believing in myself I achieved what I wanted,

- Julia summarized.

It is great that sports helped the girl to believe in herself. Despite the huge amount of criticism, Julia doesn’t give up and continues to do what she likes. And this is what matters!
