Countries with higher amount of muscular women

Apr 10, 2021 - permalink

I know muscular women are really hard to find but living in Greece I feel like there are not any muscular women at all, even in the several gyms I was going to, I ve seen only like 1 or none really fit/muscular girl. I also feel like there are some countries like US or Latin American countries who have more girls with muscle. Can u guys tell me what is the situation in your country?

I'm from Germany and I think here are not as much female bodybuilders as for example in Spain or in great Britain. The only famous fbb we have is Jana Linke-sippl, Nicole pfützenreuter died and that's all.

Latin America has a good bunch of them indeed. Also a lot of muscular women in Asia, particularly in South Korea.

Seems like Canada and South Korea have disproportional amounts

Just guessing but I would imagine America has the most. Not everyone is born here but a lot move here. Maybe California and New York are your best bets. Certainly the coasts. Maybe Texas. After us then Canada and Brazil. Seems like everyone Woman I see from Brazil has incredible legs.

I think more in Canada than US. There are a large number of Canadian buff women on this site. Maybe US comes in second with CA, FL, TX and NY having a higher number than other states. Just by looking in my gym in Brooklyn, every day about 40-50% women working out and maybe up to 4 individuals who could be on the GWM site.

There aren't "a lot" in Asia, even South Korea, compared to other parts of the world. It's still a rarity anywhere in Asia.

Yeah here in Brazil it got pretty mainstream in the last couple of years. Every gym/crossfit you go to you'll find at least a few decently muscled chicks, and many of our famous instagirls are jacked.

The average brazilian is not fit, though. Yeah having strong legs is common (specially in smaller cities where people walk instead of driving) - but still they're usually a bit chubby.

In contrast, in countries like Austria and Russia most women are physically active, so you don't see many fat chicks and everyone is in shape. But you won't see many bodybuilders either.

On Instagram it looks like LA is a mecca for female bodybuilders, but I've never been there.

Seems to me to be depending on how easy you can get access to PEDs...

All proportions kept, Iceland would be my first bet (with all those crossfit goddesses...) Then US and Canada. On the other side Countries like UK and France doesn't seem to be much into girl with muscles at all... (In general Europe is disappointing in that regard, save for Scandinavia)

In my country belgium i have never seen a muscular woman in person.

These are the 4 highest population states, so they may have the greatest number of muscular women because of that, but not necessarily the most per capita.

Canada and Finland come to mind as two countries that seem to be overrepresented based on their low populations (especially Finland) but this is just a guess.

Yep. Latino countries, for sure.

South America > Brazil

North America > US and Canada

Europe > Sweden, Iceland, Russia

Africa > South Africa I guess

Asia > South Korea

Australia has a decent amount as well

In the US the places Ive seen the most femuscle is Florida, Vegas, Los Angeles.. didnt see much in NY as those other 3 but again, I was just being touristy :)

In Latin America (I live in Panama) it's become really popular and everyday there are more and more, this started with the crossfit craze around 5-7 years ago

LA, Vegas, and FL are definitely the places to see bodybuilders in the US - but every US metro area has at least a few gyms where you will see muscular women on PEDs. I can think of at least three in my (top 20 population) metro area where I could go to see really muscular women and there are probably 3-5 more that I haven't been to but probably would have them.

So. Overall I guess I have to move to US or Latin America to find the women I like 😂

In Chile (South America) the number is rising up fast. The last 3 years I ve met a bodybuilder, and a lot of wellness and crossfit girls. Even this year with all the pandemic I ve seen a couple of very fit girls in the street.

Also I can tell about Chicago. I spend just a month there and I saw/met 4 muscular/very fit girls, including the best abs I ve ever seen.

But, for sure, U.S and Brazil are in the top position.

That, plus a culture that places an emphasis on physical fitness.

I am surprised no one has mentioned Scandinavia. A lot of the girls I follow are from the Viking countries.

Normalize for size. Eg, 340M people in the U.S. only 8.5M in say Switzerland. Imagine 40 Julia Förys and 40 Jay Fuchs in the US. - Crazy

I live in Ohio and I’ve seen some muscular women here. I would say America has a good amount of girls with muscle

I live in the Us and, especially in the last few years, I've seen a good amount of muscular women. Mostly at the gym, but not only.

I am from the U.S. as well, having spent most of it in rural areas or small towns. I don't think I have ever seen a hardcore FBB up close and personal, but I have seen my share of fairly muscular women. The following are the places I have seen them the most:

1)a, gyms (this one should be a no-brainer). University gyms in particular have a high concentration of muscular or semi muscular female athletes.

2) farm girls at any kind of agricultural event. Some of those farm girls are damn strong.

3) public parks and public beaches.

4) amusement parks in the summer. There's always at least one in the crowd.

There's a fair number of muscular girls in the U.S. yes. Sadly, they are far outnumbered by other body types.

That sounds like a good list of likely locations. I don't really think any country has a disproportionate amount per se. As for the US, bear in mind that almost 3/4 of Americans between the ages of 18-35 are ineligible for military service and 2/3 of that is due to obesity and associated conditions. The other 1/3 is due to criminal records and tattoos.

Personally I live in New York and each summer I notice a slightly ever increasing number of women with noticeable muscle. I'd also suggest looking at shopping malls and more higher end or boutique grocery stores (ex. Aldi, Lidl, Stew Leonard's, etc) in warmer weather. I've also seen a surprising amount of fit women at my local Panera.
