Michelle Jones - British Female Bodybuilder - 2006 UK Champion

Michelle Jones is an up and coming female bodybuilder who -- at 21 -- has a lot of potential on top of what' she's already done. She works out at Forest Gym in the UK, where these photos were taken by Hans Klein, a writer for GeneX Magazine. It can be said that Hans discovered her for the Internet world.

He posted this account:


Michelle Jones, a 21 year-old British girl I met today, is one of the most promising young female bodybuilders to come out of England in years - in fact, since Joanna Thomas. When she won the British equivalent of Nationals last October – only her second ever show – she was, in fact, even younger than Joanna was when she won the same show back in 1998. But unfortunately, the rules have now been changed. Whereas Joanna got a pro card automatically, Michelle will have to compete at the Europeans or Worlds to get hers.

To that end, she’s in the middle of what she calls a “two-year process of bulking up”. At 5-foot-3, she competed last October at 125 pounds and she’s already put on a lot of size since then - as I saw when I went to visit her today at Forest Gym, a hardcore gym (paint peeling off the equipment, signed photos of pros on the wall, Rammstein playing) in Sussex, just south of London, where she trains.
