Carla Jones got a late start into the world of fitness competitions. Although she was a group exercise instructor for fifteen years, it wasn’t until about six years ago she started competing as a bodybuilder, then moved into fitness competitions. She was competing in a bikini contest in Florida when she was approached by a couple of photographers. It wasn’t long before she was on the cover of Fitness and Physique Magazine, and it was time to start seriously training!
Carla is 36 years old. She is 5’3″ tall, and weighs about 125 lbs. She says the easiest way to break into fitness modeling is just to compete. The competitions are usually jammed with photographers and other people from the industry not only trying to sell their brand and their product, but also find spokeswomen for their companies.
Carla is known for having a round, full, strong looking rear end. She says there is no substitute for heavy leg and hip exercises like squats, deadlifts, and lunges. Those are her staples, along with running which helps her shed extra fat and lean up before a competition.
Don’t forget, Carla is a mom, and knows a thing or two about how hard it can be to stay in shape or get in shape. She gained 60 lbs during her pregnancy, and attributes an active lifestyle and a tight diet to whipping herself back into shape.
