Early life and educationEdit

Christine Envall was born in 1972 in Queensland, Australia. Her hometown is Bendigo, Victoria. She attended Castlemaine High School. In 1991, she started attending RMIT University, where she studied for food science and nutrition. She graduated RMIT University in 1994.[4]

Bodybuilding careerEdit

Amateur careerEdit

Envall is one of the few female bodybuilders with a career that spans more than two decades. In 1991 she first took part in the NPC-A/IFBB Bendigo City where she placed 3rd. Between 1991 and 1995, Christine Envall participated in six NABBA Australasian Championships. Inn 1995, during the NPCA/IFBB Australian Nationals, she was awarded her IFBB pro status without being judged.

Also in 1995, during the NPC-A/IFBB Australasian Championships Envall was ranked 3rd, simply because her very lean profile did not set a good example for the other women. Reason being that her physique didn't warrant her to compete in the same category as amateur bodybuilders. Between 1996 and 2001, Christine focused most of her energy in trying out for various NABBA World Championships.[1]

Professional careerEdit

In 2001, Envall competed in her first IFBB pro show, the Jan Tana Classic, where she placed 6th in the heavyweight class. In 2015, at the Toronto Pro Supershow she won her first ever IFBB pro competition. It is documented that Christine Envall is the only active IFBB female bodybuilder from Australia.[1]
