My name is Justine Munro and I was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario. I moved to Toronto in 1997 and now split my time between Canada and the United Sates. From a young age, keeping active and eating healthy have been an important aspect of my life. I have always been active in sports, fitness, wellness, and nutrition, so being a leader in the fitness world just seems to be a perfect fit!
My professional bodybuilding career began when I started working with a personal trainer who introduced me to the world of weight training. I entered my first fitness competition in April 2009 when I placed first and won the coveted Audience Choice Award. Since then, I never looked back. I entered three more competitions, winning two and placing second in the third. I moved quickly on to compete in the O.P.A Provincial Qualifier, the O.P.A National Qualifier and the CBBF Nationals; I successfully placed 1st in the Bikini Division in all shows and won Overall Bikini, thus acquiring her IFBB PRO card.
I really burst into the fitness scene as an IFBB Professional and has made quite a name for myself as the only Canadian IFBB Pro to step on stage at the Arnold Classic and the Mr. Olympia within my division.
Competing at such level has been quite an experience. I continuously sets goals to challenge myself and have never felt better about the values that I stand for. My career has been very rewarding and I am thankful to the people who provided me with positive feedback and inspired me along the way to push to the next level. I credit NOW® products to helping support my healthy lifestyle.
