Train With Dana Linn Bailey Contest: Winning Back Workout

Find out how one aspiring women's physique competitor got to train with her idol Dana Linn Bailey! Once you're done feeling jealous, try the intense back workout they did together.

Sam Wells is one lucky girl. The aspiring women's physique competitor not only met the first-ever women's physique Olympia winner, Dana Linn Bailey, she trained with her too. Sam won MHP's 2013 "Train With Dana" contest, and her prize was spending the day at City Athletic Club in Las Vegas trading reps with her idol.

"When I got the call that I had won, I honestly didn't know what to do—I just ran around the house crying like a total spaz," recalls Sam. The day after DLB won the Olympia, Sam was there to meet her. Among flashing cameras and surprise visits from other notable Olympia athletes, such as Kai Greene, the two women got right down to business by crushing a back workout. "Getting to do what I love to do most alongside the person I most look up to was a remarkable experience," says Sam.

Although she was depleted and tired from the day before, DLB challenged Sam to do her best. "The thing about Dana is that she is so inspiring," says Sam. "She makes you feel like you can do it too. There are some people who are discouraging and have a cocky attitude. She's not like that at all. She's really uplifting, inspiring, and motivating."

"I was speechless the whole day—I just tried to take it all in. This day changed my life."
