My name is Shalama and I’m so grateful you’re here!


I am an African American competitive athlete living in South Carolina. As a competitive National Physique Committee (NPC) bodybuilding bikini athlete, I am passionate about healthy living, fitness, sports and being physically active.

I began my fitness journey more than 10 years ago as a Black Girls RUN! ambassador where I traveled around the country running half marathons.

When I am not out and about, you can find me in my kitchen or relaxing on the couch streaming a movie.
