Early life and education

Ava didn’t get to spend her childhood in one place because her mother’s job required her to move from time to time and of course she took Ava with her – she worked in the US Army Corps of Engineers. Ava claimed to like that kind of life, but it also made her feel uncomfortable having to leave old friends and then make new ones everywhere, making her feel insecure, and lowering her self-esteem. Ava was the second of four kids – her parents divorced after the birth of her youngest sibling. She had a dream of becoming an actress or a model, and took some acting classes while the teachers used to compliment her and encouraged her dream of becoming an actress – she was also training in gymnastics from the age of three until she turned 15, and was the California age State Champion. As soon as she celebrated her 19th birthday, Ava moved to Los Angeles to chase her dreams and never enrolled at college.


Ava’s career did not begin as she wanted it to – she auditioned for many roles but didn’t manage to win any of them, so after a couple of  years passed she decided that it might be better if she tried her luck with something else.

She was physically active since she was a kid and so had an idea about becoming a personal trainer – her first step towards that was to take a personal training course in Florida. It took 16 months of hard work and exercising but she managed to learn all she needed to know about diets and training, and was ready to start her career of a fitness coach.

She was not interested in weightlifting at first, but after she began working with several clients, she gave it a try and realized that she enjoyed doing it – she claimed how she used to look at the cover pages of fitness magazines and admired the girls, but then she realized that she could be one of those girls. At this point of her life, Ava again had problems with her self-esteem, and weightlifting and going to the gym helped her build it up again and regain her self-confidence.

Competing in fitness events

Ava knew she was very good at what she was doing and therefore decided to start entering fitness competitions, and found herself a coach who helped her with her diet and workout program. Her first competition was the 2005 IFBB North American Championship at which she won 3rd place – since she had such a great performance at her first try, she became more motivated and in 2006 won 8th place at the NPC Junior National Championship.

During the next three years up until 2010, Ava went on to compete in four shows and managed to win all of them – first was Muscle Mania Model America Championship in 2007, then Muscle Mania Universe Weekend & Expo in 2009, NPC Eastern USA Bodybuilding Fitness & Figure in the same year, and NPC National Bodybuilding, Bikini & Figure Championship.

Ava’s first professional competition was the IFBB Jacksonville Pro in 2010 when she managed to win fourth place and went on to win the IFBB Europe Super show in 2011 while winning 3rd place at the IFBB Mr. Olympia during the same year. She competed at the IFBB Arnold Classic Show in 2011 and 2013 and won 3rd and 7th place, respectively – she also won the 2nd place at the IFBB New York Pro in 2012 which made her one of the most recognized fitness competitors of the period.

Ava’s workout program

In case somebody would like to have the same legs as Ava, here is what she does during her leg workout: Barbell squats 4×10, leg extensions 4×10, butt blaster 4×8, lying leg curls 4×8, Romanian deadlifts 4×9, seated calf raises 4×8, and standing calf raises 4×8.

This is how Ava’s usual workout week looked like during her competitions in 2011 and 2013 – she did legs on Monday, shoulders and abs on Tuesday, she would take Wednesday off and do biceps and back on Thursday, chest and triceps on Friday, legs on Saturday and then she would rest on Sunday.

Food is also a very important factor if you are going to exercise, and Ava advises everyone to eat every three hours, and to try not to eat the same food over and over again but to try and mix numerous things – some of the items which you definitely don’t want to eat or drink include sugar, fried food, dairy products, alcohol, and fruit juices. Inclusions could be  Boneless chicken breast, egg whites, sweet potatoes, cream of wheat, brown rice, garlic, onions and olive oil.

People she looks up to

Even the best of competitors have someone they look up to – for Ava, this is Monica Brant who was the first person she ever saw in a magazine and was her motivation for working out when she was just starting.

Personal life

Ava doesn’t talk about specific things in her relationships, but she claimed during an interview that she is almost always seeing someone, and only had one long break of one year when she wasn’t dating anyone, and that was around 2009.

Ava admitted to have had some drinking and drug problems when she was younger, but has now been sober for around 15 years – she took rehab for 30 days and it was her own decision because she came to the realization that she can do so much more and be better than that.

All of Ava’s dreams haven’t been fulfilled yet – she wants to be a part of reality television, and claims that if everyone can make it, so can she.

Appearance and net worth

Ava is currently 44 years old. She has long blonde hair, blue eyes, is 5ft 4in (1.62m) tall, weighs around 130lbs (58kgs), and her vital statistics are 34-26-35 and she wears shoes size 7.5.

According to authoritative sources, Ava’s current net worth is estimated to be over $2 million and is likely to rise since Ava is still very active as a personal trainer, and sells her own merchandise on her website.

Social media presence

Ava is very active on the Internet too, which is important for a career of a personal trainer – she launched her Twitter account in February 2009 and has so far gathered over 55,000 followers and tweeted more than 10,000 times. She has an Instagram account with nearly 41,000 people following her while she posted around 270 pictures – based on the photos she posts and her description, one can come to the conclusion that Ava is a very spiritual person who believes in energy healing and the importance of consciousness.

Ava also runs her own website, on which she sells products related to fitness while you can also read her blog, testimonials of the people who she influenced, and also contact her.
