MEET VIRFA FERNANDEZ
Born and raised in Santiago De Los Caballeros, Dominican Republic. I have always been very athletic and since the age of 7 I have been doing Karate. The discipline and training involved with Karate really helped prepare me when I joined the Dominican Army (Ejército República Dominicana) at age 17. During my time in the army I participated in many sports competitions.
By age 20 I was working in Hotel Management for Food & Beverage, but it lacked the athleticism and energy that I craved. I decided to quit and pursue my dream job of being a Personal Trainer. As a Personal Trainer I’m able to continue learning and sharing knowledge about fitness and health.
In 2013 I quit Karate due to an injury. But with the encouragement of a friend I decided to start my journey into becoming a Bikini Fitness Competitor and I have been competing ever since.
On Being an ALLMAX Athlete
I feel so accomplished and one step closer to my goals. I’m so honored to be an ALLMAX athlete, I’ve really identified with the brand since I started getting into the fitness world. My improvements are thanks to hard training, smart dieting and proper supplementation with ALLMAX supplements. Team ALLMAX represents quality, science and results to me.

I don’t have a cheat food. I balance my diet so I can eat the things I like.
I don’t have a favourite per say because of the way I balance my diet. I eat what I like and just make sure it has an appropriate amount of macronutrients according to my goals.
My Carbion, ISOFLEX, a towel and of course my gallon of water!
I love to go outdoors and do extreme sports so I can enjoy nature.
At the age of 20 I started filling in for the boot-camp class instructor at my karate school. My Karate Master saw how much I enjoyed it, so he suggested I continue doing it full time. Since then fitness has become my life.
I don’t really listen to music while I work out.
Not completing the number of reps I set out to do.
