Julia Vins or Yulia Viktorovna Vins, a 20-year-old Russian weight lifter, known and famous for something unique, a doll-like-face with weight lifter’s body.
Julia broke the internet couple of years ago when her pictures went viral for the very same reasons she is known now, doll-like-face with a weight lifter’s body.
In an interview which she held for herself, Julia Vins said that she never wanted to become a weight lifter. All she ever wanted was to gain strength and self-confidence and hence started training with a gym trainer. Julia has both, admirers and haters.
In her own words, “There will always be people who respect my choice or simply adequately explain why they don’t agree with it, but there is nothing to be gained by trying to defame someone who is following their dream.”
In an interview with an online portal, she said, “People know me as ‘muscle Barbie’ — I like this comparison.”
“I have these big, beautiful eyes and wear makeup. But at the same time, I’m strong. I can dead lift 180kg in training. I want to become as big as possible.” And trust me when I say, a dead lift of 180 kg is almost every weight lifter’s dream.
As per Julia Vins, everything she does including workout is solely for her and not anyone else. In a youtube video, this doll-like-face weight lifter says, “For me, a workout is not just a hobby – it’s part of my life.”
Recalling her childhood days, Julia says she was compared to a Barbie. That’s when she realized she needed a change. In her YouTube video, she says,“When I was 15 I realized I needed to change something with my life. I was not satisfied, with everything. I did not do anything, I was very skinny. So I decided that I needed to become stronger – physically and mentally.”
Defying every odds and criticism, Julia worked hard and has been training every day since past few years. That’s not only an inspiration but also, a lesson for those who try to escape from hard work.
