About Shanique


I am a 24 year old Professional Athlete in the International Federation of Bodybuilding, as the current YOUNGEST reigning Ms Physique Olympia. It’s been a journey to obtain such a glorious title and I’ll do everything it takes to retain it. Gradually, I am focusing on branding my name while inspiring those who have the same dreams, along the way that anything is possible as long as you put your mind to it. My mother is my best friend, my life. She’s always been my strength within each breath I take, I’d do anything for that woman. I LOVE shopping, my favorite kind of therapy, and you know for sure I will never turn down a good cheat meal. I live life to the fullest every single day because tomorrow is never promised.

How did you get into fitness and competing?


I began working out for my health back in 2013, within several months (May of 2014) I met my coach Johnny Casalena who took me under his wing. He saw so much potential I didn’t see at just 18 years old. We got into my first show NPC Muscle Beach Championships August of 2014 where I placed first and overall in the figure division, 14 weeks later I placed first in another show East Coast Championships. The following weekend I competed at NPC Nationals where I gained my IFBB Pro Card and was officially one of the Youngest Figure Pros in history at 19 years old.

How do you balance your social life and fitness life?


I like to keep myself around people who have the same work ethic as me. Don’t get too consumed in the social life but have enough fun where you don’t feel trapped in your fitness lifestyle. Balance is important for you mentally! Always keep the right people in your circle, they will keep you on track!

Who do you look up to in the fitness industry?
