Oksana Grishina was born on the 25th of March, 1978 in Kaliningrad. She was raised in Latvia as well as Russia. Oksana is a professional fitness competitor and used to be a gymnast.

When she was young, Oksana’s father moved to Riga. Her mother decided that Oksana needed to channel her energy into something, so she enrolled her in gymnastics. Her father got transferred to Russia when she was 10 years old. Unfortunately, no school offered gymnastics there. She was given a chance to continue training in Riga, by her coach. Eventually, Oksana’s father moved the family to Kaliningrad. Here, they had to keep changing houses and she was constantly shifting schools. A lot of her time was spent attending school and her gymnastic classes, so she got barely any time to see her parents. Fitness was everything to her. She used to go to the University of Kaliningrad, where she got her degree in Physical Training and Sports.
