I’m Carol Saraiva. I was born in Florianopolis, an island in southern Brazil. I've always been a very active child who practiced a lot of sports, like volleyball and athletics. When I was 12 years old, a doctor recommended that I should start going to the gym as I was constantly getting injured and needed to strengthen the muscles. I fell in love as soon as I started! Since then I have never stopped.
Working out became a passion which I decided to turn it into a career, so I went to University to study Sport Science. I graduated from University in Brazil and also from the University of Lisbon in Portugal. During my studies, I met Eduardo Correa who introduced me to the world fitness and bodybuilding. And that is exact time when I started to get involved in the fitness market and got my first sponsor. He taught me how to eat better and how important nutrition is for my health and body. We've been married for 9 years, we have built a lot together and have many stories to tell. I worked as a personal trainer and taught over 50 lectures in all of Brazil about training for women. Today, unfortunately, my busy schedule doesn't allow me to work as a personal trainer anymore.
My greatest professional achievement was a collaboration with one of the best supplement brands to come up with my line of supplements designed specifically for women. In two years after launching the line, it is represented worldwide, including representation at the biggest fitness shows of the world like Arnold Classic (Brazil, USA, Europe, Asia and South Africa), FIBO and Mr Olympia. Line includes all the essential nutrients to assist women in achieving their goals and maintain good health. Last year I was so proud to share my own fitness clothes collection with the world to make women all around the globe beautiful.
I dedicate my days to encourage and inspire other women to become stronger and achieve their goals.
It is amazing being able to wake up every day and do what I love. Believe in your dreams and fight for them! Do not give up on your dreams ever!
