8x Wellness Champion in Regional Championships
Isabelle started training about 8 years ago, but in the first 3 years since her diet wasn’t on point, her results were also not satisfactory. She met her husband who was into bodybuilding and introduced her to world of bodybuilding. After watching Wellness athletes on stage, her heart was beating fast and she fell in love with that category. She decided to take her fitness journey further and prep for a show, 5 months later took 2nd place the very first time she stepped on stage to compete, and never stopped! She loves bodybuilding and being on stage make her fell complete. She got over 10 competitions under her belt, always placing between top 6.
She is also a professional athlete at the IFBB ELITE PRO federation, in which she has represented Brazil in 5 professional championships in several countries including Chile, Ecuador, the Caribbean, Paraguay and the United States. IFBB Elite Pro federation is not a qualifier for Mr. Olympia and her biggest dream is compete at the Olympia. So after announcing that wellness would be at Olympia in 2020, she decided to change the federation, giving up her professional card and starting a new path in the NPC - IFBB PRO LEAGUE. In January 2020 she debuted in the new federation and was overall champion in 3 categories, leaving the championship with a total of 6 trophies and I became the first NPC wellness champion in the USA. She is extremely happy
