When Laura Dziak first started CrossFit, she was mildly concerned about bulking up. What preoccupied her more, however, was doing a workout as RX'd. Today, she's gained a total of 15 lb. of muscle but is still a Size 0.

As a member of CrossFit Reston in Virginia, the former model ditched her old image for a new one.

"I would not say that being muscular or being fit was encouraged as a model," Dziak says. "It was all about being skinny, being a Size 0, double 0. That whole skinny-fat thing that exists where a girl is a Size 0 but she's got no tone on her was completely acceptable."

Not only has her body changed "for the better" since starting CrossFit, but Dziak also competed for the first time last year. In the end, she didn't make the box's team, which finished 23rd at last year's Games, but she was an alternate.

"Just daily activities, I feel so much more confident doing things, lifting things that I think the average girl would shy away from," she says.

:) Nice, nice bla bla bla from those kind of happy girls, which are tall and naturaly pretty, nice and well situated - easy stuff, they usually talk a lot... Nobody cares about those, who used to be ugly, sick and to weight over 170 lbs (like me for example) and have to work hard to achieve their goals, but still will never become a model. Such is life... Only pretty things are valuable.

How do you know about what she goes through? Also, modeling isn't the only profession. If someone's not pretty then they can still have other great professions and also have family and friends and hobbies. Moreover, there are examples of very fat girls getting a nice body after working out and that they're also known in the industry. Are you not marketing yourself well enough? Please share with me if I can be of value in this regard. Best!
