Early life

Oksana Grishina (fitness pro) IFBB pro fitness competitor Oksana Grishina Talks to

She was born in Kaliningrad, Russia. When her father moved to Riga her mother decided to put her in gymnastics as a way to direct her energy. When she was 10 years her father was reassigned to a new post in Russia. This job came with a guarantee of government housing, which meant that, finally, they would be in a settled place. Sadly, there was no gymnastics school in that city. Her coach in Riga offered her the chance to stay there and continue her training. Finally her father got to move her family to Kaliningrad but they changed apartments often and she moved from school to school. She spent countless hours going to school an gymnastics in bus and by foot and she rarely saw her parents.

At that time there were no gyms in Kaliningrad. When the first gym opened in 2002, one of her friends suggested her to work as a fitness and aerobic instructor. A few trainers at the gym told her she had a good structure for bodybuilding. She took their advice, started training, and later discovered competitive fitness. She spent several years working as a trainer and manager in sports clubs while quickly rising to the top of competitive fitness in Russia. In 2005 and 2006 she was awarded the title of “Best Non-Olympic Sportswoman of the Year” in the Kaliningrad Region. While winning fitness competitions on the international stage at the European and world championships, she finally earned her IFBB pro card to compete in the 2007 Olympia. She has been in the United States for over three years and now lives in California. She continues to work as a personal trainer, fitness consultant, and fitness model.
