Biography

Early Life

Born and raised in the south of Holland, Ridderkerk, Evelian was very active growing up. As a child, she took part in gymnastics, martial arts, and horse riding.

However, it wasn’t until she was a teenager that she entered the gym.

Start of Fitness Journey

At the age of 18, in 2007, Evelian began lifting weights after finding the desire to become muscular and strong. She trained intensely after working daytimes at a bank.

After months of hard work, she’d made serious progress.

Evelian met her husband that same year, who was also a fitness enthusiast. He started motivating Evelian, becoming her coach.

After encouragement a lot of encouragement, she decided to enter her first competition.

First Competition

2 years after starting her journey, in 2009 Evelian stepped on stage at the Walters Open in the bodybuilding category. Her years of hard work paid off, and at 20, she took her first trophy home.

But she was just getting started.

Women’s Physique and Personal Training

After her debut show, Evelian decided to switch categories to women’s physique. Over the next 7 years, she entered a further 15 shows, placing in the top 4 in all but one competition.

During this period, she decided to give back to the industry and help others achieve their dreams. She began training others, using her website to offer her services as a personal trainer.

She works out twice a day – cardio in the morning on an empty stomach at 6am and lifting weights in the evening.
