Shaun ClaridaWho Is Shaun Clarida?

As an active youth, Clarida was always playing competitive sports. Anything from wrestling to basketball filled that competitive and adventurous desire to be the best. Clarida first began competing in bodybuilding competitions in 2005, competing on stages as he slowly built up his reputation as “The Giant Killer” and squashing any negative comments that sought to bring him down. Once receiving his pro card at the 2012 NPC Nationals Show, there was no turning back for Clarida as his new goal was now set at becoming the best in the world.

Now a serious force on the pro bodybuilding circuit, Clarida has won 4 IFBB contests and has competed in 5 Mr. Olympia competitions in the Men’s 212 Division. His third place finish in 2019 is impressive, but for Clarida he is anything but satisfied. In early 2020, he signed with NutraBio as one of their athletes, and with the help of their high-class supplements, Clarida’s journey to the 2020 Olympia podium is in his grasp.

Episode 1: Blood, Sweat & Bringing Home The Title

Coming into the 2019 Olympia competition, Clarida was more than motivated to take that top prize. Coming in at his all-time best ever, his belief in himself and his performance were at an all time high. But it wasn’t enough. Still with an impressive third place finish, Clarida was disappointed that he wasn’t on top.

But instead of living in a pit of despair, he took to the gym, showed his true colors, and proved to those who said he couldn’t do it that he was in fact good enough to compete on the biggest stage in bodybuilding amongst the best. “The Giant Killer” wasn’t out to quit; he was out to kill giants. Up at 4 a.m., doing things others aren’t doing, and fighting off every shred of doubt, Clarida knows his time is coming. At the end of the day, Clarida doesn’t train for third. He doesn’t train for second. He trains to win.
