What Led Yanita Yancheva to Strength Sports

Yanita Yancheva was born in Bulgaria on February 10, 1987. The girl was fond of gymnastics and could not even imagine that she would ever take the bar in her hands. Everything changed after participating in 2008 in the TV show Survivor Bulgaria Edition. In 50 days, she lost 8 kg and began to look like a teenager. Looking at the figure that had changed not for the better, Yancheva realized that it was time to go in for sports. This decision became the starting point for constant physical self-improvement. From the first days, the girl was carried away by work in the gym, and could no longer quit classes.

“I started to like the reflection in the mirror more and more.”

Once she realized that it is a sin to hide such forms under clothes, Yanita began to upload photos on social media pages. The guys liked them and wrote enthusiastic comments. In 2014, she was again invited to a reality show on the island. The audience appreciated the girl’s form and filled her up with compliments. So Yanita became a local star. Today, a 34-year-old model and fitness instructor teaches others how to build an aesthetic body.
