90 Day Fiance: Anfisa Nava Gets Top Scores In First Bodybuilding Contest
Over the weekend, Anfisa Nava took part in the NPC West Coast Classic in Riverside, California. The event marked the 90 Day Fiance celeb’s first-ever bodybuilding competition. Jorge Nava’s spouse gave her best shot at the event, landing her multiple awards.
As a first-time competitor, Anfisa did an impressive job and took the stage with confidence. Anfisa Arkhipchenko bagged a total of three awards — a bronze for landing fifth-place in the Open category, and silver medals for being the second placer in both Novice and True Novice categories.
Anfisa proudly shared the good news to her followers on Instagram. She uploaded a series of photos and videos taken from the event. In one of her posts, Anfisa shared a short video of herself showing off her awards. This caps off her chronicle since she’s shared all her training and preparations for months.
Anfisa Looks Fierce And Stunning In Glittery Bikini
In another post, Anfisa Arkhipchenko Nava flaunted her muscular figure in a fancy and skimpy bikini. The 90 Day Fiance star rocked a sparkly blue competition swimsuit and accessorized with lots of bling. Anfisa doesn’t look like a rookie at all as she flawlessly struck a pose to show of her figure.
Last year, she concentrated on bodybuilding and started transforming her body. Her strict diet and fitness regimen made her lose at least 20 pounds. In a previous interview with E! News, Anfisa admitted that she once weighed 146 pounds. But after months of sticking with her new lifestyle, her weight dropped down to 120 – and lots of muscle.
90 Day Fiance: Why Anfisa Decided To Transform Physique
So why did Anfisa Nava decided to take a completely different path and transform her body? According to the 90 Day Fiance alum, it has to do with Jorge Nava’s arrest. Last year, authorities sentenced Jorge to two and a half years in prison on a charge of possession with intent to sell. Apparently, it took a toll on her.
That was when bodybuilding came into the picture. With Jorge went to jail, his wife decided it’s time to divert her attention. She said she had a gap in her life “after Jorge was sentenced”. Because he was gone and she was alone, she needed to keep busy. Anfisa said she needed a diversion to keep busy. Since she loves working out, that made sense. Anfisa wrote that she decided to take “it on a higher level” and train to compete.
