Nataliya Kuznetsova is a 28-year-old world champion bodybuilder from Chita, southeastern side of Russia. Girls at the age of 14 would be shopping and gossiping with other girls on the new hot guy, Nataliya was hitting the gym for bodybuilding.
Her father thought that the activity can help her in building her self-esteem as she was a ‘timid little mouse’. She started as a 40kg bodybuilder. At the age of 15, she was already a champion for the region of Zabaykalsky Krai.
The woman is married to her husband, 42-year-old Yusif Eyvazov, who is also a ripped bodybuilder. But he has smaller muscles to the champion, which is pretty obvious but also uncommon.
Speaking to Golder’s News and Sport, Nataliya reveals that she met her husband a decade ago and has never cared about whether his body is smaller than hers. She believes in ‘mutual love and support’ when it comes to building a happy marriage.
She’s now a 90kg bodybuilder and revealed surprisingly that she did not have a high ambition of winning a championship. But three months after training, she was asked by her trainer if she wanted to try competing. From there on, she began climbing the stairs of world-level championship.
She has also set world record for European bench press and deadlift titles. She also participated in a production at the Bolshoi Theatre that featured opera star Anna Netrebko, 48, and her husband.
