She works hard, and she is beautiful inside and out! Anastasia decided to scratch one item off her bucket list by entering the Bermuda Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation’s 2nd Annual Bodybuilding and Fitness Competition that took place last week. She won 2nd place, which is amazing considering this was her first time ever being involved in such an event!
