I could think of a few reasons.
I’ll be the first to admit that interviewing people is a bit intimidating when you’re not used to it. There are a lot of questions to take into account and a lot of variables to think about when it comes down to talking to people. You can think that it’s easy to talk to other folks or you can think that it’s difficult, but when the time comes to start forcing the words from your mouth it can be a little intimidating when it comes to feeling another person out, be it over the phone or in person. But sometimes you can get lucky and find someone that is easy to talk to and might have at least a couple of similar interests, and on top of everything is just a cool, decent human being. That’s a big part of what this article is about since the lady I’m here to talk about is someone that absolutely exemplifies what Radass is about.
In fact, she’s someone I’d gladly call Ms. Radass without question since from a short interview and a look at her Twitter and Instagram profiles, she’s the kind of woman that’s impressive for more than just her looks, though let’s be honest and say that she’s definitely a good-looking woman, and if you take a look at her pics, she knows it. The great thing, and one of the things we look at in terms of who is worth being listed as a consideration for Ms. Radass, is whether a woman is just as attractive on the inside as she is on the outside. I get it, that sounds corny as hell and stands out as a massive cliche, but when all is said and done, this site isn’t just about T&A…I mean, we are about that kind of stuff, but when it comes to character, that matters just as much.
Holy Elle is one of those folks that you can listen to for a couple minutes and come to the conclusion that she’s got a heart that’s every bit as big as the muscles that she likes to show off, which is saying a lot. It does help that during our brief interview it was discovered that we have a few things in common, which helps when talking to someone since not only does it boost your confidence, it helps to loosen up and just talk to a person without being as stiff as a board. It also keeps a person talking like they just had about ten cups of java in one sitting. All in all, the brief interview that I managed to have with Holy Elle told me enough about her to think that she’s not just an interesting person, but she’s likely a great friend to have. Okay, that’s an assumption, but first impressions can tell a person a lot if they’re listening.
I’ll admit, I was impressed by her initially, and that didn’t change.
I’ll be honest and say that the moment I was asked to look at Twitter for her profile, I cringed. It had nothing to do with HolyElle, but it had everything to do with Twitter. That’s another matter though, and it’s more personal than anything. Upon looking at her profile though it was quickly made worth it since her role as a personal trainer might not make her stand out as one in a million, but talking to her made all the difference since a person can only get so much from pictures. It’s talking to them that makes it come together. Had we the chance to meet, I’m fairly certain that it would have been fun to just sit down and pick her brain for an hour or so, but Oregon and Missouri don’t exactly share a time zone, and aren’t right next door to each other. Ah well, talking to her for a short while was enough to get a feel for the type of person she is.
She’s dedicated, and that’s impressive enough.
Holy Elle’s role as a personal trainer has been something that she’s been dedicated to for a while now and has been one of her joys in life as she’s figured out how to stick to a plan. Losing weight, getting in shape, and learning how to maintain the fruits of your labors happens to be something that a lot of people can’t figure out or can’t stick to for a number of reasons. Both those that are made up and those that might require a little bit of adjusting to make certain that they can be remedied. This is a woman that has made that tough decision to stick to the straight and narrow and pick herself up when she has one of those days. You know those days, right? You’re not motivated, you don’t want to do anything, and even your body seems to say “Give yourself a rest, don’t worry about it”. Nope, she knows how to get up and get back to work, and I’ll be perfectly honest, I like that. It signifies the kind of hard work that’s needed to go from the picture on the left to the one on the right. It’s not easy, a lot of people know this, but it’s worth it. She believes it, and I believe her.
I won’t deny it, she’s earned this flex.
I don’t mean to sound creepy but there is something incredibly appealing about Holy Elle’s overall look and it’s easy to state that women with a bit more meat on their bones, whether they’re kind of curvy in an impressive way, or have the kind muscular appearance that’s not scary or severely intimidating, are impressive to look at. Saying that might sound kind of strange, but there’s nothing but genuine respect for this woman coming from those of us at Radass.
Her interests in sports and comic books definitely made for a fun conversation.
This was a pleasant surprise that came from taking a good long look at her profiles and from talking to her. Upon finding out that she’s a comic book fan I have to say that my heart leapt just a bit as my inner child perked up in a big way. Talking comic books with her would have likely taken a long time since knowing at least enough to make a long and interesting conversation, I could have sat and debated one thing or another or talked up one series or another with this lady and felt entirely vindicated for being a comic book nerd for so much of my life. But to make it even better she’s a sports fan as well, and to make that even better, she knows what it’s like to root for a team that isn’t great, but it’s her team. While the Orioles of the MLB might not be the best team (hey, I’m being kind here) I can’t really talk since I’m a devoted Mariners fan. As far as the NFL goes, her being a Steelers fan…I won’t hold it against her as a Seahawks fan since it’s nice enough to find someone that not only enjoys the game, but is a firm supporter of the teams that she’s come to enjoy. I swear my heart skipped a beat when I found out she was a comic book fan…the joy was simply too much.
This woman does not miss leg day.
It goes without saying that Holy Elle does not miss her workouts that often, if at all. Would it be wrong If I wondered if she could crack a walnut, or maybe a watermelon? Seriously, this woman has put in the kind of work that makes her legs look like they could give her the type of power that would allow her to knock a wall down with a good front kick. Some folks would look at these legs and be intimidated, and others would look at them and simply say ‘damn’ in the best way possible. Now tell me, how could you not look at this woman and be inspired to do better, or even just find a way to attain this kind of result? One thing this proves is that while younger individuals that are into fitness might be able to parade around with bubble butts and waists that barely reach double digits, Holy Elle is one of those individuals that makes you realize that fitness is still possible when you’re out of your 20s and have taken what life has to throw at you for a while.
Holy Elle is the type of person you can’t help but like after talking to her.
With over 130k followers on Twitter it’s kind of obvious that she’s the type of woman that people feel confident in following and also feel is worth the effort to keep up with. While I’ll admit that I don’t have the same regard for Twitter as many others, I don’t see the harm in people doing what they can to use the platform to help and inspire others, and that’s exactly what Holy Elle appears to do. To be fair, she does make it pretty clear what she’s there for and what she’s not willing to deal with, and that’s another mark in her favor that makes her so easy to talk to and easy to like. She’s the type of individual that’s bound to tell it to you straight and not spare your feelings if it’s not necessary. But she’s also the type that can be a very down to earth and kind person if she happens to think you’re worth the effort. In other words she’s a nice lady that has a great sense of humor and a lot of interesting hobbies.
At the end of the day, she’s a confident woman, and we love that.
Holy Elle has made it known that if a man is intimidated by her that’s his issue, and after reading this on her Twitter account I fully agree. It was a pleasure speaking with her and at this point she’s definitely someone that has what it takes to be Ms. Radass if she wants the title.
WTR? (Why’s That Radass?)
We’re always on the lookout for folks that stand out in some unique way, and folks that are interesting enough to talk about. For the Ms. Radass competition that we’re still working on we’re looking for women that have the looks as well as the personality to make it worth speaking with them to find out as much as we can to make our decision. My advice would be if you need a bit personal training advice or just want to talk about sports or comics for a while, Holy Elle would be a great person to seek out.
