Marika's Story

“Hi, my name is Marika Magriplis. I am 31 and as a mother of a young son I realise that life has many challenges and obstacles that can at times prevent us all from living an active and healthy lifestyle; I can relate to this myself without a doubt. Life can throw us all curveballs however it is at these times I have found my training to really help me to de-stress and helps me to cope with my ever-changing lifestyle.

"In 2013, my training cumulated into success in the IFBB Bikini division where I won the QLD All Female Classic and the highlight of my career so far where I won the IFBB Australasian Bikini Short division."

“In 2014, I fell pregnant and chose to remain as fit and active as possible and I really enjoyed my training during this period. Sure, there were many exercises I was not able to do and I had to also decrease my training intensity for the health and well-being of myself and my son, but it was a great feeling staying fit while pregnant and it was a beautiful time in my life."

“In 2015 after giving birth I found my return to an active lifestyle very challenging as being a Mother my priorities had changed but when the time was right and with the support of my family I was able to very slowly progress back into some weight training and also make changes to my diet to help get back into the shape I wanted to be in. This was not easy and it was a physical and emotional rollercoaster with many ups and downs but in the end I was able to achieve a degree of success in which I got into shape 7 months after giving birth and had a photo shoot in LA with the world-famous photographer Alex Ardenti."
