Melissa Le Mans - Traded her office job for a fitness career

This is her story:

“Wake up and make your day unforgettable. Your attitude is everything! Having the right mindset to achieve your goals and success means believing in something with such passion that it becomes your reality. Passion is the fuel for your fire.”


Melissa Le Mans was born and raised in Queensland (Australia) and has been involved in various sports since childhood, developing a slim and beautiful physique.

Basically, she preferred playing sports, and in the gym she did nothing but run on the track or pedal an exercise bike. The girl did not work with weights.

After graduating from college, Melissa began working in an office. Her lifestyle was mostly sedentary, and there was very little time left for training.

Melissa was unhappy with her level of inactivity—she wanted to pursue a career in something she enjoyed. Determined to change her position, Melissa began to think about a career as an incoming athlete.

In 2009, at the age of 24, Melissa began preparing for her first show. The Australian began lifting weights in the gym, trying to give her figure volume and definition.

The girl took part in her first competition in 2010 and fell in love with bikini competitions. She moved from tournament to tournament, gaining experience and gaining more and more popularity in this sport.

It didn't take long before Melissa earned a trophy in her first major competition, the 2013 ANB Asia Pacific Day.

This pushed her to achieve even more, and a year later she achieved her goal. At the age of 29, she became the owner of the coveted professional card (Pro Card).

Melissa's impressive performances in fitness bikini competitions brought her immense fame. She started gaining a ton of followers on social media. People admired her incredible physique.

Continuing to post photos and videos sharing her fitness journey with fans around the world, Melissa became a social media star by 2016.

“Who wants to lose weight but still eat delicious food? … I! I spent years eating super strict to lose fat and have since learned that it doesn't have to be that way. Enjoy the products you love and still get the results you want.”

Melissa believes diet is the key to success when trying to achieve a great figure. She knows that you need to eat healthy and follow a well-planned diet to reduce body fat.

But she also believes you can enjoy tasty food in the process – Melissa started out eating bland food, but realized she could settle for small treats if she worked harder at the gym.

As for supplements, Melissa takes:

  • Spirulina
  • Multivitamins
  • Fish fat
  • BCAAs
  • Whey Protein

“Anything you dream of can become a reality: if you work hard enough for it, don’t give up when things don’t go so smoothly and be patient…”

Melissa taught us one thing: if you are unhappy with your life, change it. She didn't like working in an office and made the big decision to pursue her passion – fitness.

Melissa earned her WBFF Pro Card after 3 years of competition, proving that anyone can achieve their dreams if they work hard enough.
