Name: Alice Matos
Born in Florianopolis, the capital city of Santa Catarina state in Brazil, IFBB Bikini athlete has gained high notoriety in the fitness industry. With an unbelievable fitness backstory which inadvertently led her to a comp-ready physique – and now Alice is one of the major female players on the IFBB scene.

By day, Alice divides her time between being a journalist, an entrepreneur and modelling.
Alice enjoyed exercise from an early age. As a child she regularly took part in sports, especially volleyball, basketball and soccer. However, it was only over the last few years that Alice started to get involved in the bodybuilding community.
Trying to get in shape for summer, Alice booked a session with a personal trainer. After learning a few exercises, Alice fell in love with lifting and continued to improve on her routine and nutrition.
Fast forward a year, Alice and her trainer realized that her hard work had inadvertently created a competition body. It was time to enter some contests…
Alice doesn’t have just one exercise that she prefers, she has three: Barbell Squats, Bench Press and Back Rows all at the top of her list. As they are all compound movements, Alice believes they are the best way to build mass.
