As a teenager, Ivan discovered his natural love for fitness when he started training for the highly competitive sport of Kyokushin Karate. He never looked back since. As a native of Colombia, Ivan became one of the elite-level competitors in the sport, representing his country on several occasions. He won first place in the National Kyokushin Karate Tournament in 2002, and again in 2004. In 2005, he won first place once again in Karate at the District University Sports Games. Even with all his accolades, his hunger for fitness and desire for a challenge didn't stop there. He explored different training methods to improve himself, becoming certified in Les Mills BODYPUMP™, BODYCOMBAT™, TRX and Crossfit. He's a born competitor. He found that his greatest challenge is to make himself better. It gives him something to chase. After all, for Ivan, the journey never stops. Qualification Highlights • Les Mills BodyCombat.
