Ava Cowan has graced over 20 magazine covers such as Oxygen Magazine, Muscle & Fitness Hers, Iron Man Magazine and Fitness Rx for Women and has been in virtually every fitness magazine around the world. Ava is equipped with brains, beauty and brawn, and anyone who has seen her work either on the competition stage, in print or at public appearances knows instantly she gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “persistently driven”. Her well-proportioned physique, vast knowledge of exercise science and unbelievably inspiring story has led her to become one of the most talked about and sought-after fitness ambassadors in the industry. When this woman has a vision there are virtually no obstacles that can stand in her way.

Ava is a certified personal training specialist having graduated from the renowned Fitness Institute International in Boca Raton, Florida. This education is what initially gave her superior confidence to not only training others, but herself as well. Realizing her potential in 2005, she decided to turn her passion for a healthy lifestyle into a career and discovered her path as a figure competitor.


Harnessing her rock solid work ethic, knowledge of exercise science, and innate ability to "Never Give Up"​ is what enabled her to move herself forward at a breakneck pace. In August 2005, she entered her first figure competition the NPC Southern States where she won the Overall Figure title. That “win” was a defining moment in her life, and she never looked back. With well over 1 million devoted online followers, Cowan is something of a social media phenomenon. The popularity is eye catching, but the many years of coaching herself and others has led her to the next phase in her life as an online consultant and new business owner.
