IFBB Figure Pro Larissa Reis: In Her Own Words

By Larissa Reis, IFBB Figure Pro – To realize one’s purpose in life is a goal that all successful people aspire to. Though sometimes uncertain, if one follows their heart, positions themselves in a positive environment, and surrounds themselves with good people, the end result will no doubt be a happy and rewarding life.


I was born in the Brazilian capital city of Brasilia, the only child of two very loving, but strict and demanding, parents who deserve all the credit for helping me to become the women that I am today. From the very beginning a love of sports, competition and the fitness lifestyle was a passion of mine, a passion that continues to burn in me to this day.

When combined with my natural athleticism, the fitness lifestyle opened up an amazing door of opportunity for me; the chance to enter into the very prestigious world of Playboy as a featured playmate. Being a playmate opened up additional doors and my following opportunity, a marketing campaign for a health food supplement store, exposed me to the world of female figure competition. From that moment, my career path began to crystallize.


I am a practicing Buddhist and owe much of my success to the principals of this philosophy. Buddhism is about self-improvement, sharing and world cooperation with the hope of making the entire world a better place.

I consider it a blessing that my success as a professional figure competitor has given me the opportunity to represent Nutrex, the leading fitness industry supplement company in the world. Nutrex and the IFBB have given me the opportunity to meet, inspire and experience many exciting and interesting people.


Always remember to follow your heart, work hard, surround your self with good people and stay positive. If you incorporate these basic principals into your life you will find that nothing is impossible and that your dreams can become your reality.
