Belizean women seem to be on a trend of bodybuilding and are stepping up to the challenge to transform their bodies into healthy works of arts. We have seen local Sanpedrana Katherine Portillo on the spot light and most recently Belizeans Zarifa Waight and Cricel Castillo. This week we bring to you a Caye Caulker native who resides in the United States of America; her name is Luna Novelo.
Luna Novelo grew up in the lovely island of Caye Caulker and is the daughter of Caye Caulker resident Jim Novelo and former wife Cindy. Luna is currently living in Kansas where she was a cheerleader at her high school and is now happily married to Matt Ellis; she has become a professional body builder.
On Saturday, October 12, 2013, Luna competed in the NPC Natural Colorado Open Bodybuilding, Fitness, Figure, Bikini & Physique Championships in the Bikini division and won first place in the Novice Class A. Luna trains with Team Heugly and her trainer is Tiffany Heugly. Congratulations to Luna! (Source: Caye Caulker Chronicles)
