A little about Maria

My name is Maria Sharp, and I was born and raised in Langley BC. I am an IFBB Pro Figure competitor and pretty much live this life 24/7.

From a young age, I have been an athlete, and was driven to always strive for perfection in every sport I was in. I was a figure skater, basketball player, swimmer, but most of all a competitive runner. Before I got into bodybuilding, after I had my two children, I was a cardio queen aerobics instructor who had no idea how to eat properly. At the age of 30 my whole life would change for the next 15 years, as I built a physique that would take me to 7 wins at the National level and on to my IFBB pro card. This was my ultimate goal and I am so blessed to be living my dream every day!

At the age of 30 my whole life would change for the next 15 years, as I built a physique that would take me to 7 wins at the National level and on to my IFBB pro card.

Currently I lead a large direct selling team for the past 15 years. I am actively involved in the Canadian Physique Alliance, and teach posing classes as well as run posing seminars. Giving back to athletes is so rewarding for me and I enjoy volunteering my time at most of the local shows.

What are the qualities in you that you considered yourself to be an ALFA?

I AM ALFA due to my Type A personality. I believe I lead my life with integrity and respect. I strive for perfection in everything I do and hope that I come across as a good role model as well as inspire all woman coming into my sport.
