IFBB Bikini Pro
Meet Racquel Symons now known as “The Little Fit Girl” on Instagram. Racquel is recently dominating the fitness world at just 20 years old.
She is an IFBB Bikini Pro Competitor, model and aspiring actress, as well as an athlete for HPN and Toxic Angelz Bikini.
Racquel was born and raised in Orange County, California. Racquel found her love and passion for health and fitness in the beginning of 2013 at just 16 years old. All her life she’s always been very active and involved with sports.
Racquel did dance and gymnastics at a young age as long as competitive swimming and Karate for five years. Racquel later wanted to get involved with tumbling and cheerleading. She decided to join a competitive cheer team and was a flyer for them as well as her high school prep squad.
During the summer of 2012 she was not enjoying cheerleading as much as she used to and was not happy with the way she looked. She was never rail thin or overweight but was not pleased with what she saw in the mirror. Unfortunately, she became overly obsessed with the desire of being thin and the number on the scale.
She soon started rapidly loosing weight, fearing food and was not eating. Racquel went from 112 lbs to her lowest 87 lbs in less then two months standing at five feet tall.
By the grace of God Racquel thankfully received help by Sean Torbati CEO of High Performance Nutrition and Co-Founder of HealthyBody NC. Sean has taken her under his wing since the very beginning showing her the importance of how to eat and nourish the body and to workout correctly. From day one she instantly fell in love with weightlifting and has never looked back. Racquel is appreciative and thankful for her struggles in the past because without them she wouldn’t be who and where she is today. This makes health and fitness that much more special and important to her in her life. Fitness has truly saved her life.
Since Racquel loves to perform and has a competitive side to her, she soon discovered the world of competing and wanted to get on stage and compete in the bikini division. Her first show she ever competed at she took home first place and received her ANBF PRO Card at 16 years old. After that she was hooked and loved training for shows. She loves the aspect that you can change your body the way you want it to look like. It motivates and excites her to know that I can improve my physique at every show, get better and grow physically and mentally each time I step on stage. The goal is to always improve and better yourself.
After competing in 10 amateur shows, Racquel earned her IFBB Pro Card at the NPC Miami National Show in November of 2015. She is currently training in preparation for her Pro Debut in 2017.
Racquel is now proud to be eating disorder free, the healthiest and most importantly the happiest she’s ever been. Racquel has a hope and desire to help motivate and inspire others to achieving their health and fitness goals as a means of improving their self confidence, self love and overall well being!.
