International Fitness and Swimsuit model Carmen Garcia was born on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Havana, Cuba. She left the island with her parents at a mere 8 months and resided in Spain for a few years before she ended up in Miami, Florida with her family.
Carmen was raised in Miami throughout her childhood and teen years. When she graduated high school, she moved to the hip South Beach area and managed a Brazilian bikini shop on South Beach where she learned Portuguese. But that was not enough for the young aspiring model and photographer. She wanted to venture to the either side of the coast, California! Carmen spent several years in San Diego while she surfed, worked and attended college for photography, fashion and business. Carmen also assisted a photographer on the side for the experience in the modeling industry.

Aspiring to become a freelance photographer and designing her own clothing line were only a few of Carmen's passions. She believes that all of her career choices all "tie in together". She'd given up on modeling years ago since South Beach only promoted tall and "waify" fashion models.

A few years after living in a mellow beach town like San Diego, Carmen decided to give Los Angeles a try into personal training and other passions. Carmen says, "I'd given up on modeling years ago because I wasn't tall or thin enough and I need a faster paced lifestyle like L.A.". When the determined Latin model moved to Los Angeles, she found a new chapter in her life that was about to unfold. She picked up a fitness magazine and saw a very shapely and toned physique on the cover. Seeing this type of cover model inspired Carmen to hit the gym even though she was already in shape, and she pursued fitness modeling as a career. Carmen found her niche as a fitness and swimsuit model so she began test shooting with local photographers as well as networking on her own. Her web site was built in the year 2000. The site has really helped Carmen gain an online presence that has lead to more work in other media like TV.

It wasn't long before Carmen appeared on covers of well known magazines, music videos for bands like Sugar Ray and gracing the pages of Musclemag International, Just Swimsuits, Planet Muscle, Low Rider, Hot Boats, Oye magazine, Muscular Development, Ironman and more! She's made many appearances all over the nation and has really worked hard to build her name and brand herself as a popular print model & spokesperson in the fitness industry.

Carmen is a freelance health and fitness writer, competitor, motivator and ISSA certified personal trainer
