Competitive figure builder works her way to U.S. team

Angela Yeo Angela Yeo
(Toledo News Now) -

The transformation of 29-year-old Angela Yeo didn't happen overnight.

"There are no cupcake workouts," said Yeo. "I lift heavy. I lift as often as I can."

It is the life of a competitive figure builder - think body building, but without the mass.

"I focus on delts, lats, and well-built quads," Yeo said.

It's hard work, but it's paid off. Yeo's interest in the sport began seven years ago when she read about it in a magazine. Soon it consumed her thoughts.

"It kind of happened quickly," said her husband Jamie.  "You could really see it. The physical transformation was amazing. Everything about her seemed to change."

As her muscles grew, so did her confidence. Still, Angela never wanted to get involved in actual competitions. That is, until last year.

"I felt if I didn't, I was going to live with some serious regret," she said. "I went for it and I ended up doing very well."

She's certainly got the proof. In less than a year of competing, Angela's worked her way on a U.S. team that will compete in the Natural Olympia later this fall. Win or lose, she's got a lot to be proud of.

"It's such a rush and it's so much work getting there," she said. "It's just so much pride and it's like - you are really here."

You may think a competitive figure builder would probably work out at a big gym, but in reality, Angela works out at home with her treadmill, some weights, and a couple key pieces of equipment.

"A lot of tried and true methods are that way because they work," she explained.

It's the life of a competitive figure builder, and it's a life that's just perfect for Angela Yeo.
