Helle Trevino Beginnings
Helle Trevino was born on a Danish farm in the rural area of Sønderborg. During her time in rural Denmark, her father used to work out on a regular basis. She must have given her the motivation to get into body building later on. Later on, when she went to college, she majored in German and English. Afterward, she ventured into body building by taking courses in nutrition and body training.
Since early on, she was an athletic child who took up competitive sports as early as three years of age. She was a gymnast and she also took up other sports. Some of these were track and field, swimming, shotput, horse-riding, martial arts, biking, boxing, yoga, and ballet. At the age of seventeen, she joined a gym and trained seven days each week.
In the beginning of her training, she was 128 pounds. At the end of her first year, she had piled on 29 pounds of pure muscle. At that instance, she came to the realization that she had the potential to hulk out. She realized that her genes allowed her to build up muscle fast.
