CONGRATULATIONS to LENA VAJAKAS Women’s Physique (Canadian Nationals)!

by on Aug.16, 2016, under Events, Physical, Uncategorized

With Lena Vajakas

With Lena Vajakas

Congratulations to this high caliber athlete for her first and successful top 5  finish at the Canadian Nationals Women’s Physique category.  This is excellent for her first attendance at such a prestigious event.  The highest in Canada that earns the class winners their pro cards. 


Lena Night show Routine

     I just finished having the pleasure of working with Lena as her trainer/coach as she prepared for this show! I was surprised when Lena approached me to take on this role, but I eagerly accepted the challenge.  Her previous trainer and excellent bodybuilder Kristen  McCarthy, had some personal business to attend to and couldn’t help so much this show,  so I had a good pair of shoes to fill , as Kristen had done a fantastic job with Lena over their time!  I’m confident in my abilities,  but hadn’t trained clients for shows a bit of time. (see my success stories with some of the athletes I’ve worked with here on this blog).  Same thing, I had personal life to attend to over the last few years.  Well, it was like I never left!  I loved the process of prepping a client for show, especially when they are as dedicated, disciplined, and gifted as Lena is!  I like to work with my athletes as a team.  We are in this together, and the goal is to be the best!  Her transformation over 20 weeks was amazing, and she had clearly packed on some dense muscle! Combined with her lines and beautiful posing and stage presentation, Lena is surely a Winner yet to come! Lena is getting ready soon for another bout of physique battle.  I will follow up with details soon or you can find her on https://www.instagram.com/lovendahouseCanadian Women's Phyique Nationals

For training sessions, you can email me at store@rhondalee4u.com or https://www.instagram.com/RhondaLee_Quaresma

Very proud of you Lena, and Congrats once again! xo


Outta the gym time!

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

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
