Early Years

Born and raised in South America, Columbia, Carolina Mestre always had a passion for fitness – she began working out at 16-years-old, striving to make progress on her physique.

However, she’d never considered a career in the industry – until she met a professional fitness model in the gym.

Carolina became inspired by the model, and set her sights on achieving similar success.

Start of Fitness Journey

At the age of 21, in 2012, Carolina began sculpting a figure capable of competing. Over the next 2 years, she dedicated her life to fitness.

Her hard work paid off. By 2014, Carolina had achieved a lean physique and began looking at entering herself into fitness shows.

First Competition

At the age of 23, Carolina entered her first competition as a bikini athlete – the 2014 Seminole Classic.

Impressively, the Colombian placed in the top 3 on her debut. She was motivated by this performance, and set her sights on winning her first show.

With this determination, she appeared in 6 more contests that same year – walking away with 4 trophies.

Carolina carried her success into 2015, winning two NPC championships and taking home the overall titles both times.



Carolina trains 6 days per week in the gym. She always mixes up her routine and which muscle groups she trains, keeping every week different.

Her favorite workout is chest – this is her workout plan:

Barbell Bench Press

“Start to warm up with press on flat bench with bar. Press lying on flat bench, hands apart in a length greater than the width of the shoulders. First only with the bar 25 repetitions.”

  • The second set of 15lbs on each side: 25 reps
  • The third set 25lbs on each side: 20 reps
  • The fourth exercise is called contractions and we do 20 repetitions with the help of someone, pressing the bar as you go up

Chest Cable Flyes

“And we do it seated in the machine with separated arms in horizontal position, to inspire and to join the arms to the maximum and we do the following”:

  • 40 lbs weights, 25 reps
  • 40 lbs weights, 25 reps
  • 60 lbs weights, 20 reps

Incline Bench Press

“Stretched on a narrow bench so as not to disturb the movements of the shoulders. Arms extended, elbows slightly flexed and we do”:

  • 20 on each side
  • 30 repetitions
  • And 3 more repetitions

Pull Ups

“Standing with legs slightly apart”

  • 3 sets of 30 repetitions



Carolina eats 5 high protein and carb meals per day to provide her with enough energy to develop her physique. She begins her day at 5am and continues eating until 8pm.

Diet Plan:

Carolina’s diet plan will look something like this:

  • Meal 1 – Oats with Milk
  • Meal 2 – Chicken, Quinao, Vegetables
  • Meal 3 – Chicken, Brown Rice, Vegetables
  • Meal 4 – Chicken, Sweet Potato, Vegetables
  • Meal 5 – Chicken and Salad

Supplements Stack:
