Top Canadian Bodybuilder Maria Mikola Debuts

Maria hits a sleeve-stretching double bicep pose.

Longtime Canadian bodybuilder Maria Mikola has built a resume almost as impressive as her physique during a career in the sport that spans twelve years, reaching back far before the days of physique websites (or any websites for that matter). But at last, we’re able to bring her to the studio and don’t mind being a little late to the party — particularly considering the sensational and tireless 41-year-old from Ontario just keeps looking better and better.

Moreover, she remains an elite competitor across the globe, having recently traveled to compete at the Women’s World Championships in Italy and the World Juniors and Masters Championships in Poland. This past summer, Maria also swept a pair of awards in her home country, flexing her way to the middleweight crown at the Canadian Nationals and also capturing the Canadian Natural Physique overall championship.

The curvy Canadian flexes her dramatic horseshoe-shaped triceps in a fetching pink top.

A wonderful and classic example of gymnast turned bodybuilder — she was still coaching gymnastics at the time of her first bodybuilding competition in 1997 — the short, stocky Maria is widely recognized for showcasing dense and shapely muscle throughout her strong (235-pound bench press max for starters) and striking 5-foot-3 frame. Today, she continues teaching as a certified personal trainer. Check out her website for more.

Meanwhile, here’s a highlight reel of Maria from her tantalizing contest-ready shoot at this year’s North Americans, where she placed fourth in the middleweights. As you can clearly see, with such a charming smile accompanying those breathtaking muscles, this incomparable and indefatigable Canadian hardbody is always a winner in front of the lens.
