Early life and educationEdit

Tina Chandler was born in 1974 in Shreveport, Louisiana, the second of three children. She grew up in Conroe and Willis, Texas. She attended Sam Houston State University.[1][4][5]

Bodybuilding careerEdit

AmateurEdit

During her childhood, Tina was a competitive gymnast; in addition to all the sports available at the schools she attended (volleyball, track, basketball, tennis, cycling, cheerleading), she got involved in weight training from the sports. Soon after, her career as a gymnast had ended and she needed something to get her in shape, so she sought information from the magazine Muscle and Fitness. She soon found herself in the weight room more and more as I was pleased with some of the results she was getting quickly. She attended her first bodybuilding competition, the SW Texas State, in 2004, which she won. She won her IFBB pro card after coming in 1st in the middleweight class at the 2007 NPC Nationals.[3][6]

In 2009, Tina attended her first Ms. Olympia competition, which she placed 10th.[3]
