Biography

Early Years

Born in Florianopolis, Brazil, Alice Matos had always been athletic as a child. She played numerous sports including volleyball, basketball and soccer, but she hadn’t considered a career in fitness growing up.

However, at the age of 25, Alice started following athletes such as Michelle Lewin and Larissa Reis on social media and became inspired by their awesome figures.

It was at this point that she decided to embark on a journey to sculpt her dream physique.

Fitness Journey

In 2010, Alice hired a personal trainer to help her in the gym – she was determined to achieve her personal goal.

For the next year, the future competitor began training 5 times a week, with the aim of getting in shape for summer. But she soon fell in love with fitness and dedicated all of her time to working out.

It wasn’t long until her coach realized her potential and entered Alice into her first fitness show – the 2011 Arnold Classic in Ohio, America.
