Get Fit__ Gold Medalist Natasha Hastings on Her Muscular Physique
Muscular physique, check. Runners legs, check. Toned tummy, check.
Gold medalist and Team USA athlete, Natasha Hastings dominates on the track, but also in the gym – and she's not ashamed either.
“It's unfortunate that some people don't appreciate women's athletic bodies,” says Hastings in an interview with Cosmopolitan. “As much as I'm a girly girl, I love being buff because it makes me look pretty intimidating — I can still come off as a badass.”
Hastings has no problem engaging in some friendly competition in the weight room either. “I love going to the gym and lifting the same size weights as guys lift. I say embrace what you have."
And embracing her physique is just what she'll do. "I have a nice booty, so I like to play that up. I love my arms, so I show them off,” says Hastings. But at the end of the day she refuses to engage in that ever-famous body-shaming saying, “I don't think that you should shame yourself for not having the perfect body, because no woman has the perfect body.”
