MARIA MIKOLA - IFBB PRO
Hi and welcome to my official web site! For those of you visiting for your first time, let me tell you a little about myself.
As I was growing up I was always active. I was a provincial competitive gymnast in high school and a national competitive trampolinist in college. I took up windsurfing after college to stay active but that was only a summertime activity. I took up weight lifting in 1995 to stay in shape over the winter months but was hooked and have been training with weights ever since. I was a state/provincial level bodybuilder for 5 years and a national/international level bodybuilder/physique competitor for 13 years. The last couple years I moved into the physique division where I won my IFBB pro card in 2013. As an IFBB Pro I competed 1 year in physique then a year later I moved back into bodybuilding where I belong!
I was certified as a National Level Artistic Gymnastics Coach for 12 years before I became a personal fitness trainer in 2001 helping others reach their health and fitness goals. Whether it be losing a few pounds, getting into better shape, increasing their physical strength, improving cardiovascular fitness, I can help you get there!
