Professional body builder makes a stop in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

Zoa Linsey spent most of her early life searching for something that she felt truly passionate about. It wasn't until she competed in her first body building competition that she realized she had finally found it.

When you talk with Zoa you almost forget that she spends most of her time in the gym and can eat up to six meals a day, but once you look at her biceps and ripped abs you quickly remember how much time she puts into perfecting her body for a sport she has performed in for more than ten years.

Zoa recently turned professional in the world of body building, and as a professional, she is spending her free time representing a sport that she says people often think is a little weird.   

"I try to help people understand the sport and maybe explain to them that they may not want to be a body builder but they can admire the dedication it takes to get there," Linsey said.

Zoa is currently taking some time off but will be back in training shortly.
