Teresa Giudice on Her New, Ripped Body: At 46, I've "Never Felt So Confident"

"I wanted to see my body transform," The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom says.

By Adele Chapin

Teresa Guidice is a bodybuilding champ! The The Real Housewives of New Jersey yogi went through quite a body transformation and she showed the world this week, placing third in the NPC South Jersey Bodybuilding Championships thanks to her incredibly toned, tanned physique.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

Now Teresa is sharing the backstory behind how she got so amazingly buff. She's on the cover of Us Weekly, talking about her body transformation and how she got in the best shape of her life at age 46. It turns out she's always been into working out at the gym, but after a tough year, she dove into strength training as a stress reliever.

"I wanted to see my body transform," Teresa told Us. "I love the way my arms and back look. All my clothes are big on me. My body drastically changed because of yoga, but this was even more extreme. It debunks the myth that if you’re over 40, you can’t look good."

There's another result besides just the physical: Teresa says she's “never felt so confident,” and she couldn't be prouder of her efforts. "I also wanted to show my daughters that if you put hard work and time into something, you can achieve anything," she says. 

We'll raise a dumbell to that!
