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

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
"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.
