MAITE GARCIA became a fitness champion after completely changing her body.
Maite Garcia has always been skinny. A doctor even told her she needed to gain weight when she was a child but this just drove the Spanish model to junk food.
It wasn’t until Maite met her now-husband five years ago that he helped her gain 1st of muscle and bulk up to 8st – and go from a UK dress size 4 to 8.
The 27-year-old explained: "I have always been very skinny and it took a lot of effort to gain the weight, I have what is known as an ectomorph biotype.
"I've always liked curvy and toned bodies and it was my goal to get it. When I met my husband, he’d practised fitness for years and introduced me to this world.
"He made me realise that changing some dietic habits and starting a workout programme could help me get a more toned body and eliminate the cellulite and flaccidity - and he wasn't wrong."
