Growing up, Claudia battled with her body image and became obsessed with unhealthy eating and fitness habits. It wasn’t until she met a bikini competitor that her perception of ‘health’ changed. Going from only cardio and low-calorie processed foods, to weight training and nutrient dense meals, Claudia finally found the self-acceptance she had always wanted. Now based in Sydney, she has unearthed a passion for all things related to modelling, fashion, travel and most importantly – a balanced mentality when it comes to health and fitness. Claudia’s determination and healthy mindset has helped her make a household name for herself in the international fitness industry. In just under 5 years, she has won three PRO Cards, five world titles and multiple placements. Aside from her fitness achievements, her exotic look and rising social media presence has helped her grow an extensive modelling portfolio. Over the last few years, Claudia has been featured and on the cover of several international magazines, and has also had the pleasure of working with the likes of Puma, Chobani FiT, Adidas and Sweaty Betty, to name just a few.
Claudia has graced the front covers of Women’s Health & Fitness Australia, Oxygen Australia and Krunch Magazine India, and has been featured in numerous international publications including Strong (USA & AU), Maxim (USA & AU), GQ Mexico, Sports Illustrated and Fitness Magazine South Africa. She was also named Maxim’s Finest Australia in 2017.
Equipped with both Certificate 3 and 4 in Fitness, Claudia has extensive knowledge on nutrition and exercise. Aside from her qualifications, her competitive edge has seen her win several Bikini-Fitness contests in South Africa, Australia and USA.
An eclectic mix of Spanish, Macedonian, South African and Australian heritage, Claudia’s exotic look has captivated a wide range of international brands and photographers. Her recent shoots have included brands such as Chobani, The Mulia Resort Bali, Lilybod, Chuchka, Asics and Celius.
