MAHWAH, N.J. -- The reigning Ms. Bikini Olympia, Brazilian fitness model Angelica Teixeira, stopped by Powerhouse Gym in Mahwah on Tuesday.
Teixeira, 32, came to the United States less than a decade ago.
She began competing in 2013 on what became a meteoric rise to the title -- including 15 first-place finishes as an amateur and a professional -- and works as a professional trainer.
"One of the nicest and humblest people I've ever met," said Powerhouse trainer Greg Wetterau of Mahwah.
To be lean and toned, she told GreatestPhysiques.com :
- Eat small, and clean portions every 3 hours. Your diet is 80% of the job;
- Avoid saturated fats, alcohol, and sugar;
- Incorporate intense exercises such as HIIT to speed up the metabolism.
