PNBA natural bodybuilder Tiffany Stosich shares her 4-year natural bodybuilding transformation after birthing her second child.
Mothers who love fitness know the challenge of being in shape after bearing children. Unfortunately, getting and staying in shape is harder to accomplish after childbirth. However, with the right approach, you can still get into fantastic shape to become a mother. Professional Natural Bodybuilding Association (PNBA) athlete Tiffany Stosich is a testimony to this. She proves that you can be in good shape after conceiving children and that you can build one of the best women’s natural physiques on the planet.
Tiffany Stosich made a lot of progress with her physique over the past four years and has accomplished outstanding feats, including winning the 2020 Natural Olympia in the Women’s Pro Physique division. On June 7, 2022, she went to Instagram (IG) to encourage others about what you can accomplish with your bodies with hard work and dedication. Stosich commented:
“DON’T GIVE UP ON YOU! MORE PEOPLE WANT TO TAKE THE EASY ROUTE OUT AND GIVE UP ON THEIR GOALS. PEOPLE THINK I WAS BORN THIS WAY, WHICH IS FAR FROM THE TRUTH. I WORKED FOR IT LIKE EVERYONE HAS TO WORK FOR IT. IT’S DOESN’T COME NATURALLY FOR ME TO BE LEAN AND HAVE MUSCLES. I PUT IN THE WORK!
THIS IS A 4 YEAR TRANSFORMATION AFTER HAVING MY SECOND BABY. I DEDICATED 4 STRAIGHT YEARS TO ACCOMPLISH THIS. I MAY BE AMAZING AT PATIENCE AND CONSISTENCY BUT GENETICS ISN’T MY GIFT. I. HAVE. NO. QUIT! HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?”

Fitness After Bearing Children
Although being in shape as a mother presents challenges before bearing children didn’t, as you can see, getting into shape and even excellent condition is still possible. The process may take a bit longer, but patience, consistency, and execution of a well-structured plan will get the job done–Tiffany Stosich was able to build a fantastic physique, but it took years.
Exercise after pregnancy should start slow, then slowly increase in intensity–walking is a great place to start. Experts agree it’s safe to begin an exercise routine a few days after giving birth. To get results like Stosich, we recommend weightlifting combined with a proper nutrition strategy.
INBA PNBA Bikini Mamas

- Division 1: within one year of giving birth
- Division 2: within two years of giving birth
- Division 3: within three years of giving birth
