Maple Leaf Figure Muscle

It’s been eight years since Canada’s Nadya Castellas, 29, stormed onto the fitness scene after winning the short class at the ’01 North American Championships in Mississauga, Ontario. The stunning 5-foot-2 competitor from nearby Toronto continued to dazzle and by ‘03 had already turned pro.

Away from the stage, Nadya is currently an important presence working as a physical trainer and sports therapist at the Buffalo Spine and Sports Institute. She’s been a celebrity in print, lending tips and insight on energy drinks to an excellent piece for the Buffalo News exploring proper hydration for exercise enthusiasts during summer months.

Under the spotlights, Nadya has shifted to the hotly competitive figure ranks and will look to improve on last season when three shows — the Europa Super Show, Sacramento Pro, and Kentucky Muscle Figure Pro — curiously resulted in prejudging eliminations.

But Nadya won’t be in the shadows for long. Having sculpted such a top tier physique — just look at her abs and back — it’s only a matter of time before this lovely Maple Leaf establishes herself as one of the top call-outs in the pros.
