Regiane has been actively competing since 2001. Initially, she achieved great success by participating in amateur competitions. Like any other fitness competitor, her ultimate dream was to convert her hobby that was bodybuilding into a career. Thus she sought to achieve the IFBB pro status. An IFBB Pro status allows one to compete in bodybuilding shows with prize money.
In 2006, she had finally achieved her dream and became an IFBB pro. She first competed at the 2006 Arnold Classic and Internationals and finished in 8th place. With this result, she qualified for the 2006 IFBB Olympia, the most prestigious bodybuilding contest in the world.
Competing with professionals, however, proved to be an uphill task. She only managed to finish in 10th place at the 2006 Olympia. After winning most of the amateur contests, she was now aware of the standard of competition she would face against professionals.
Over the next few years, Regiane consistently finished in the top 10 of several IFBB certified contests. In 2008, she managed to finish in the top 6 at the Olympia. It was not until 2011 that she racked her first win as a professional. She placed first at the 2011 IFBB FIBO Power Pro Germany. Her performance at that years Olympia wasn’t too impressive. Due to the presence of high-profile figures, she only finished 12th. This was when she decided to focus all her efforts and change her training regimen to achieve better results.
From 2012 until 2015, she consistently placed in the top 5 of all the competitions she entered. In 2013, she placed 2nd at the Arnold Classic Brazil. With renewed confidence, she worked very hard over the next year. At the 2014 Olympia, she finished in 2nd place. It was the best result of her career. It was a testament to the effort she had put in over the past couple of years. Additionally that year, she finished in 2nd place at the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio, the Arnold Classic Brazil that was held in Rio de Janeiro and the Arnold Classic Europe held in Madrid, Spain. Perhaps with a little more luck and dedication, she can achieve her life-long dream winning the Ms. Olympia and be crowned the best bodybuilder in the world.
