Fitness leader, sponsored athlete and Magnum Brand Manager, Marlo van den Brink discovered fitness competitions after signing up for a gym membership post-back surgery due to a horrible car accident. Staying active and healthy turned from a necessity in order to fully recover, into a love and passion for the health and fitness industry.
Having worked as a personal trainer, Marlo has since gone on to become a sponsored athlete for two Canadian supplement companies, moved into a Brand Manager position at Magnum Nutraceuticals and is now working on building her own personal brand.
Marlo loves inspiring and motivating others to take action and accomplish their dreams. “All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”

Bikini Competitor and Fitness Model, Emily fell in love with the fitness industry as soon as she stepped inside the gym just after graduating high school in 2012. She began exercising and lifting weights to improve her mental and physical fitness and quickly moved her way up in the industry. After high school, she attended University on Vancouver Island in hopes to become a lawyer. During that time, she competed in her first bikini competition. She quickly realized that law was not her passion and that she loved the challenge and excitement of fitness competitions. After being featured in the same magazine as Magnum’s President, Markus Kaulius, she was offered a job at headquarters. She jumped at the opportunity and left Vancouver Island to start a new career as an Athlete and Brand Development Specialist at Magnum.
Aside from working at Magnum, you can find her at the gym but she also enjoys meditating, yoga and spending time outdoors hiking, snorkeling, snowboarding, and surfing. She loves to travel and tries to explore somewhere new at least once a year.
Personal development has always been an interest of Emily’s and she is constantly trying to become the best possible version of herself. She revels in reading books and listening to podcasts by great influencers such as Tony Robbins, Grant Cardone, Tim Ferriss, Gabrielle Berstein, Brian Tracy and many more. She hopes to one day start a podcast and become an author herself.
Although she is fairly new to this career, she hopes to become one of the top salespeople in her industry. Emily plans to get her IFBB Pro Card in the next year. Her ultimate goal is to compete at the world’s most renowned fitness competitions such as Olympia and the Arnold’s.
Her favourite Magnum supplements include Salted Caramel Quattro, Mimic (she loves carbs), and PRE4!
