WINGS OF STRENGTH PROMOTES EVENTS!

by on Feb.29, 2016, under Daily Digest, Events, Physical, Uncategorized

Had so much fun here! Promoter WOS put on this event on the Venice Beach boardwalk. You will know it as the infamous ‘Muscle Beach!’ I met the promoters, Kristel and Jake Wood! So cool and nice. If I understand correctly they have offered their ability to save women’s bodybuilding in the IFBB by putting up the money to do so, as well as offering good prize money to the athletes! The Ms Olympia was recently discontinued by the IFBB.This event comprised of ‘the muscle mansion’ girls, created an atmosphere of camaradie amoung us women.

This event comprised of ‘the muscle mansion’ girls, created an atmosphere of camaradie amoung us women. Something lacking amoungst the bodybuilding women in the past. The girls, Alina Popa, Isabella Turell, Hella Trevino and Margie Martin, and the infamous Lenda Murray! All these women incredible bodybuilders! I went with my friend and IFBB pro Michelle Brent. Lovely that we were invited to join the hardcore training party in the pit while there! She joined the main girls of event enthusiastically, and Lenda Murry (8 X Ms O, mentor, WOS promoter, and great ambassador for the sport), summoned me to join as well. OMG So flattered to have Lenda’s approval!! But I wanted to support as an IFBB pro team mate and let the gals enjoy their spotlight. I totally enjoyed watchng! I also met Brian, WOS, their bro and marketer, great vibe, and was wonderful meeting onlookers and fans of all of us girls.

The Peurto Rico ifbb pro show is this weekend May 28, 2016, AND also put on by WOS! 2 of the ladies Michelle and Isabelle are competing.  Whats so especially impressive about Michelle,  is not only her positive attitude in the world of bodybuildng, but that she is 58 years old, and is STILL competing! Not to mention with a set of biceps many would die for!  And in regards to Isabelle,  is her young incredible physique, clearly an up and coming bodybuilding star!

In regards to pro bodybuilding as a whole, Hopefully there will be more such events with many different pro athletes being showcased in addition to the above mentioned, with WOS! It helps involve the general public and athletes together.  It would be a nice idea if all the pros were informed and kept in the loop at the same time regarding what goes on overall in this sport. A monthly newslettter, meetings, etc.  knowledge creates Power. I think it would help. ;)

Was great to meet everyone here! Good luck to EVERYONE this weekend in Peurto Rico! xo

Thanks to Bill Dobbins for these shots I posted, our loyal Female Blodybuilding Photographer!

Peace, Love & Happiness,

RhndaLee Quaresma XO

-MICHELLE BRENT: (IFBB Pro Bodybuilder & Friend- www.Michelle’smagicmoves.com legendary bodybuilder & friend!) She helped Me thru out this show so much! There’s probably not enough or the right words to express the thanks I have regarding the dynamic that occurred between us, BUT, she has turned out to be my mentor, one of my best friends, and a joy in my life! She unconditionally helped and supported Me preparing for my last show. Her experience, time and expertise re training, posing, stage presence, etc, etc.,  was given so unconditionally,  and her confidence in Me was/is beyond invaluable! I swear i would never have been able to do this show even if not for her help! Plus She and Blondie came with me to my show and we had the best time!! Having them by my side is such a positive and great memory in my life Ill never forget! Support from people who care goes so far!

To A Super Special Person, JOE DeANGELIS, RIP!

by on May.17, 2015, under Daily Digest, Physical

   Wow, I am shocked and beyond saddened to hear about My very good long time friend,  bodybuilding Champion and peer,  Joe DeAngelis. :(  I’m almost at a loss for words right now, even though there’s so much good to say about Joe and his life! Joe had a huge impact on me, and many! He was always kind  & supportive, sharing of his vast training excellence and experience!  His work ethic, strength and passionate ‘Do it’ attitude,  were to be no less than admired, leaving you no choice but to be motivated! The Mecca of Bodybuilding (Golds Gym Venice beach) was his shrine and sometimes I was lucky enough to run into him and he would invite me to join in and train with him and some other guys!  What an experience! 

(pause as i think)…. Time flyes… We lost touch for a while due to life, but just on my most recent trip here (I see this last meeting as a blessing), we found ourselves back at the same time at the Mecca in Venice beach! :) No surprise though really,  as this has been a common occurrence  for many other Top level bodybuilders to reconnect here at one time or another! A wonderful thing! 

Presently, My compassion, (and i speak for many who agree with me here),  for his latest life trials is beyond explaining. I feel it goes to show that every human no matter how strong, is not prejudiced to what we might have to deal with in life! 

(another pause)….Joe, I KNOW, you will be pleased to know, that you have left happiness and knowledge,  here on this earth. (especially in The Muscle world).   The Universe’s creator knows You and Your life! I believe that it will take care of all, leaving your legacy in such a place, that if you were still here, in this moment, everything would be as you would wish! That being said, Thank you for touching my life!  RIP JOE!

With Sincerity and Love,

RhondaLee Quarema XO

P.S. To give you an example of what I talk about above, years ago, Joe was more than happy to let me do this ‘Showcase’ about him for one of my websites, http://www.rhondalee4u.com/showcasejoedeangelis.html 

Enjoy!
