Whitney Wiser is an IFBB Bikini Pro, fitness model, and coach from the United States of America.
She’s been competing ever since 2011 but has had many roadblocks on her way to the top.
Back in her early competitive days, Whitney injured her spine which derailed her progress for months.

High School Training
Whitney Wiser has been active her entire life. She got into weightlifting back in high school when her coach brought a personal trainer for their basketball team.
Whitney loved lifting weights just as much as she loved playing basketball. Day after day, she could feel the progress from training in the gym. Not only that, her performances on the basketball court improved too.
All of this motivated Whitney to keep pushing her limits in the gym, and eventually, it made her fall in love with bodybuilding.
“I wanted to be the best and strongest in the weight room so while most of the team was goofing off, I was paying attention to the trainer and pushing myself daily.”
After graduating from college, Whitney’s days in her basketball team came to an end. It wasn’t long before she switched to bodybuilding contests full-time.
At first, Whitney wasn’t sure in what category to compete in. There were initially two choices: figure and bikini class.
Whitney initially wanted to compete in figure. However, she wasn’t able to build enough muscle in the 8 weeks that she had before the show. So she ultimately chose to compete in the bikini class, which didn’t require her to put on as much muscle.
The year was 2009. Whitney stepped on the stage in her first amateur bikini contest. To her amazement, she took 2nd place that day. In fact, this result made her even more ‘addicted’ to bodybuilding and competing.
At that moment, Whitney set a goal to train harder than ever so she could win her next show.
National Level Shows
Whitney started competing in national-level shows in 2011. And initially, everything was going well.
But not long after, she faced a huge challenge – suffering a crushed spine. This set her progress back for several months. She couldn’t do any bodybuilding during this period, focusing on recovery instead.
But Whitney had a strong mentality and said this would only motivate her to come back stronger. True to her word, she returned to contests in 2012 and slowly made her way to the top. In fact, by the end of 2014, she was getting closer and closer to winning her IFBB Pro Card.
Pushing For the Pro Card
Whitney kept working hard in the gym throughout the months. Then, in 2014, she finally won the IFBB Pro Card after taking 1st place at the Junior National Championships.
Riding high from her victory, she didn’t waste any time – placing 9th in her Pro debut a couple of months later.
Within months, she climbed up the competitive ladder and eventually won her first Pro show – the 2016 Muscle Mayhem Pro.
Ever since turning Pro, Whitney hasn’t slowed down for a moment. She continues to impress with her results on and off the stage in her career of a fitness model, bodybuilder, entrepreneur, and NPC judge.
Whitney is also an inspiration for people that follow her online. She continues to compete at the highest level and looks forward to what the future has in store for her.
“I never expected anything or did I ever once say that I was going to turn pro before it happened. I just put my head down, put my headphones in, and put in the work and got rewarded for it. If there is a will, then there is a way.”
Whitney goes to the gym at least 5 times per week.
She stays on top of her training by constantly experimenting with new workout routines. She likes to switch things up often so her body never adapts.
Whitney’s favorite exercise is side lateral raises. She also loves training her lower body – especially legs and glutes.
Whitney also plays basketball a couple of times a month. She does this as a hobby but also for fat-loss goals.
Whitney generally eats a healthy diet but knows that balance is key. For this reason, she’ll enjoy burger and fries once in a while.
Her favorite high-protein food is oatmeal mixed with whey protein and peanut butter.
