In this article, we are going to share the story of how Ryall Graber climbed up the ladder to become the 2019 Arnold Ms. Fitness International Champion and the fittest woman in the world.
From Dental Hygienist to Fitness Expert
She grew up in Alberta, Canada, together with her younger sister as the only children to their parents. All through her grade school, Ryall showed an aptitude for sports and excelled scholastically. Her childhood dream was to become a strong and fit woman and have her dream home in a tropical paradise.
After finishing her degree in science specializing in dental hygiene, Ryall moved to the tropical island of Bermuda. While working as a dental hygienist, she enrolled for a fitness competition at which she was so excited that she later embarked on a 9-month training to become a professional athlete. Ryall quit her dental hygienist job and immersed herself fully into fitness training.
She later moved to Barbados in 2010 where she started the RyFit INC, a company that made her realize her hidden gift of helping others achieve their goals and see their lives positively overhauled. She was able to train over 100 online clients in the first six months only.
Rising to International Glamor
If you’d ask her, it wasn’t easy- it was a tough cycle of dedication and hard work – but it was worth it. After starting RyFit INC, Graber went on to compete as a professional IFBB Fitness athlete in global competitions. She already was becoming a master in the sport having won in many competitions globally.
As Ryall explains, she has worked so hard that at some point she had to strike a balance on her eating habits and her work-out routines to achieve the perfect body fit for her new career in athletics. Graber also worked with other top-notch champions and coaches but also used to have self-coaching sessions. She went through many setbacks – including injuries, personal loss and health complications but overcoming these obstacles are what have made her as strong as she is today. Graber believes that her commitment to the sport of Professional Fitness (a division of bodybuilding) has created her accountability, focus, relentless mindset and determination in life; which has been imperative for her to create a successful business.
