Karina Grau has been passionate about fitness from a young age. She was only 16 years old the first time she stepped foot in a gym. And after witnessing fitness models working hard on their physique, she realized quickly who she wanted to be and what she needed to do to get there. This is how Karina’s journey with fitness began.
It didn’t take long for her to fall in love with the sport. Karina became enthusiastic after seeing positive results from grinding it out at the gym. She knew it wouldn’t be easy, but if she focused her efforts, she would shatter her performance potential within time. This drive and determination eventually led her to compete nationally. And compete she did.
Today Karina is an IFBB Figure professional and has appeared in three consecutive Mr. Olympia contests. For her, competing requires the utmost discipline – mentally and physically. Karina’s biggest advantage throughout her journey has been her undying passion. The sweat. The sacrifice. The dedication. It all paid off.
