Start of Fitness Journey
Born in 1990, in Balneário Camboriú (Brazil), Fernanda’s passion as a child was surfing. She began practising at 15, and became very skilled at the sport, with her figure becoming lean and toned due to the demands of surfing.
However, Fernanda moved to São Paulo to study Physical Education at college, leaving surfing behind to focus on her degree. It wasn’t long until fitness took over her life, and she began training daily, determined to sculpt her dream figure.
After a few years of intense training, Fernanda had managed to develop a lean and toned physique. With the female bodybuilding scene prominent in Brazil, her friends encouraged her to compete as a bikini athlete.
As a result, in 2011, at the age of 21, Fernanda entered her first show – the Cantarinense Championship of Bodybuilding.
Although she didn’t have the dream start in her debut, she placed a respectable 4th. This motivated her to return to the stage stronger than ever; she stepped up her game in the gym, and began working towards winning a trophy.
Over the next 5 years, Fernanda’s life moved very quickly. She graduated from college, and opened her own personal training studio – to help others realize their fitness goals.
