It’s Michelle Bridges like you’ve never seen her before.
If you need some next-level #fitspo, look no further than Michelle Bridges’ latest Instagram post.
Bridges, 44, has stunned us all by releasing archived images from her days as… A BODY BUILDER.
And you thought she had sculpted guns now… Those muscles are next-level.
In a caption accompanying the impressive photos, Bridges wrote:
“Throw Back Thursday! Ha! I’ve had a lot of people lately ask me about when I competed in Miss Figure, Miss Australia Fitness and Miss World Fitness in USA and are there any pics?? Here’s a couple of snaps from back in the day…. gawd that bikini was a bit small?!?”
“I’m cringing but also quite chuffed,” she added. “I wont the Miss Oceania title and other bits and pieces. Hard training. Tough nutrition. Ticked the box.”
The Biggest Loser trainer and national health and fitness icon was the Miss Oceania “Overall Figure Winner” in 1996. At the time, she went by the name Michelle Dombrowski.
Bridges has long been a beacon of fitness in Oz, recently telling news.com.au: “Exercise isn’t just about looking good in a pair of jeans or looking good in a dress for a wedding, it’s what it does for your head.”
“It does such good things for the way in which you think. There’s so much research out there on depression and anxiety and exercise, its completely linked,” she said.

“And then of course what it does for you physiologically in terms of looking after your bone density and strengthening your ligaments and giving you a body that’s agile and energised. You’d be crazy not to do it!”
