It wasn’t until she decided to join the gym that she discovered that competitive female bodybuilding was her true passion and where she belonged to be.
She was only a junior in high school when someone at the gym asked her if she competed. This question lit the spark that would later take her to become the best IFBB bikini competitor on the planet.

Ms. Bikini Olympia and Social Media Influencer
Being the best in the world at something is very difficult. But, becoming Ms. Bikini Olympia is even harder.
When the division was introduced back in 2010, bodybuilding fans couldn’t even begin to imagine the impact that the newly-created class would have on the sport.
The bikini division is (arguably) the most competitive class in bodybuilding. Even at the amateur level, shows are filled with dozens of competitors.
If earning a pro card is extremely difficult – winning the Olympia is virtually impossible.
Courtney King –against all odds- earned her pro card, won a ton of professional competitions, and ultimately ended up winning the biggest title in the world – the Ms. Bikini Olympia.
Her success helped her become a sponsored athlete and one of the most popular fitness personalities on social media.
It’s common knowledge that the competitive lifestyle can be very harsh on the human body. Courtney wasn't the exception and she had to take an indefinite break from the world of competitive bikini.
Nowadays, she’s still in phenomenal shape and focuses on being as happy and healthy as she possibly can. She’s also a fitness coach, holistic nutritionist, and a fundamental part of the Gymshark team.
Is Courtney King Natural?
Courtney King has been training with weights since she was sixteen. Before that, she was an accomplished athlete in different sports.
Although it’s believed that some bikini competitors have been known to use performance-enhancing substances to improve their physique appearance – Courtney King is most likely not one of them.
Any fitness expert will tell you that as impossible as it may look; achieving a muscular and toned physique like Courtney’s is most definitely achievable naturally.
Courtney has been seriously training for nearly a decade. She will always be one of the hardest workers in the gym and she's always taking good care of her diet.
Some people have speculated and claimed that her health issues are a direct result of not being natural – but these allegations just don’t make any sense. Competing –naturally or not- takes a huge toll on the human body.
It’s obviously impossible to know if she’s natural or not, but going by her track record – it’s highly likely that she is. She simply has an incredible work ethic, combined with awesome genetics.
