Eva began her career as a competitor in Body Fitness, a bodybuilding category in Brazil, where she won many titles of national and international prominence. Andressa started training when she was 17 and competed in her first IFBB show at 24.

Eva had a rough start to her fitness career. She quit after working out for a month as she didn’t have a trainer or any knowledge about fitness. At this point, Andressa questioned her abilities and if she would be any good in the fitness field.

After some time away from the gym, she met Jardel Barros, her future husband and they soon started dating. Jardel was an athlete and he gave Eva the training and motivation she needed to transform her body.

Fueled by Ambition

After training for a year, Andressa realized she had the right genetics for the sport and was excited to see where fitness would take her. With every passing year, Eva made serious progress towards her goal of making a mark in the fitness industry.

❤️ Esse post é para dizer o quanto me sinto feliz e realizada. A intenção era subir no palco depois de 10 anos, com um shape bem condicionado e fazer uma bela apresentação, sem intenção do primeiro lugar. 🙌🏻 A meta foi cumprida! E devo isso ao @darlloncabral, que foi meu preparador físico e me fez subir naquele palco, com um físico muito bem condicionado, com o MELHOR shape que já tive até hoje (Ouvi isso de muitas pessoas), que me incentivou todos os dias da minha preparação, fez eu dar meu melhor em cada treino, mesmo eu sendo teimosa haha 😂 😊 Depois de 16 anos de treino, eu achava que nem conseguiria evoluir. Mas com a direção e orientação correta, somadas a nossa determinação e força de vontade, tudo é possível! 🙏🏻👏🏻 @wbff_official @darlloncabral_team @carolinedecampos @teammaniforce @farmaforma @steelfit_brasil @uplay_fitness @academiagavioes @clinicadrajulianabarreto #wbff #divafitness #losangeles #braziliangirl #fitnessmotivation #EvaAndressa

Eva worked hard to achieve her dream physique and her quick development acted as the fuel which kept her going on the journey of self-improvement. She entered her first competition at the age of 21 and walked out as the Figure champion.

Continuing her hard work, Andressa kept adding to her trophy case and soon became the Figure champion, Brazil. In 2008, Eva set a new ambition of winning bigger shows and entered the IFBB Body Competition in Brazil. She surprised everyone by placing 1st in her biggest show yet.

Competitor Turned Model

In 2009 at the age of 25, Eva decided to turn into a Fitness model as her competitive career wasn’t enough to support her financially. Eva’s Midas touch proved itself yet again as she gained more exposure by becoming the face of a sports nutrition company.
