Well, that just sort of came out of nowhere, one day it was warm and then it just wasn’t anymore. Suddenly, those of us who do the morning training session find ourselves heading to our chosen training destination while it’s still dark and for the most part there’s a fully stocked weight rack. It’s way too cliché to use the “summer bodies are built in winter” line, but it is so incredibly true. As much as it sucks to get up and out of bed in the dark, there is no better time to reflect and start your day than that initial training session, especially when you are free from the chatter encountered during the more mainstream months of training. Something else to consider over the next two months, try…

our cover model

MICHELLE LEWIN didn’t start out wanting to be the supermodel of fitness on Instagram. She discovered her love of working out almost by accident when training with her husband, Swedish bodybuilder Jimmy Lewin. “It was awesome to see the progress I could make. I started going to the gym all the time. I was stuck!” Lewin, who was born in Venezuela, was a fashion model before she became immersed in fitness. In 2013 she started entering bikini competitions and then earned her pro card and finished on the podium at several IFBB events. But she tired of the politics and moved on to focus on her fitness modelling career full time, posting her progress on social media. Today, Lewin has an astounding 12-million-plus Instagram followers. And while many are likely guys…
