Abby Pollock is probably the most well-known redhead fitness fanatic in the world. Her pictures have circulated the internet for years now, most notably the transformation sequence from the featured image. Her transformation from having a flat, skinny body to a well-rounded fitness model has completely changed her life.
Getting fit isn’t an easy task – for anyone – but Abby has made it a point to show the world that getting fit takes time, dedication and will power. Acheiving one’s fitness dream won’t happen overnight – or within months – its taken Abby years to get into the best shape of her life and she’s constantly working daily to achieve better fitness levels.
She began her journey about five years ago and hasn’t look backed since then.
Being a shy person as it is, Pollock started out as a rather skinny girl, primarily due to her diet. She confessed to living an unhealthy lifestyle before she took on fitness.
900 Calories A Day
Pollock says she was on a vegan diet (and even used Vegan Protein Powder) that was particularly strict before she started her heavy workout routine, in which she used to only consumed about 900 calories daily. The image below on the left clearly shows the lack of any definition or muscle.
Feeling weak from her vegan diet, she soon started to become interested in body building – this is when her life changed completely. Being dedicated and continually refining her diet, work-out routines and strength training, she turned to competitive bodybuilding.
She’s now switched her focus on being a health-focused athlete that helps folks get fit and stay motivated by posting photos and videos of her daily workouts and health routines. She also gives advice and shares recipes and workout routines for her audience and followers through social media, in particularly through Facebook and Instagram.
Many Can’t Believe Her Progress
Her results are so impressive, many detractors online claim she must have had some sort of augmentative surgery such as implants. They argue you can grow muscle, but can’t change the distribution of fat in your body. No one has any concrete evidence for or against it, but we believe these types of results are highly attainable with many years of proper dieting and hard training.
Pollock said in a recent interview that she is “continuously challenge myself in all aspects of life. I like juggling school, fitness, and my personal life, along with their respective goals.” “Now and then, I feel overwhelmed or unsure of exactly where I’m going, but I refuse settle for mediocre so keep moving forward. To me, nothing is more satisfying than achieving my goals and then going on to pursue even greater challenges. It’s the struggle that motivates me.”
Pollock was recently asked what her future goals are, and as you can imagine for any serious bikini model or fitness buff, she’s shooting for her IFBB Pro Card.
Pollock gives this advice to those looking for advice on obtaining a Physique like hers, saying…
“Do your research! This applies regardless of whether you’re hiring a coach or not. Before making any significant changes to your life, set goals, figure out what it will take to achieve them, and don’t settle for any bro science or facts without evidence. A lot of people will blindly follow fad diets or training plans. Stop the mindless movement and move with purpose towards your goals! If you are consistent and make adaptations based on how your body is reacting, then you will reach your goals.”

I LOVE this circuit because you can use it as an at-home workout, warm up routine, or as a finisher circuit at the end of a leg workout.

- Side lying clamshell – x30s (per side)
- Quadruped kickback – x30s (per side)
- Side lying hip raise – x30s (per side)

Perform this circuit with minimal rest and repeat 3-5 times depending on what you’re using it for.
