This 5' foot 95 pound dynamo burst onto the IFBB stages across the country exhibiting nearly perfect symmetry and balance. Max Muscle Sports Nutrition has been a major part of her growth from the intense conditioning that is required for IFBB Pro Bikini, to the arena in which she commands respect, IFBB Pro Bikini where she recently took top honors at the IFBB Houston Pro.
Christina's isn't just a case of 'the right genes' as throughout her journey she's been battling a heart condition, she has Neuro Cardiogenic Syndrome which brings low blood sugar, low heart rate, and low glucose into every waking day.
"At 8% body fat, my IFBB Pro Figure training was too intense on my body, so I switched to IFBB Pro Bikini." said Vargas from her Las Vegas kitchen. "I simply love to cook so Bikini, my heart condition and the things I must do to maintain normalcy all seemed to revolve around what I eat and how my body processes it."

You can see she takes all this very seriously. Her true love lies in Nutrition where she is studying to become a Certified Nutritionist. The research and materials she was reading led her to intense label-reading because, as Christina states it, "I hate boring crappy proteins!" When she first tasted MaxPro Protein, "The search was over!".
Along with supplementation, Vargas' avid love of cooking along with her meal-planning, has lead to a documentation of hundreds of recipes she's developed to stay in this incredible shape that continues to improve as her skills, workouts, supplementation and targeted muscle groups increases.
"With the success of my Bikini competitions, I took another hobby and turned it into a business that took off immediately...VargasBikinis.com." said Vargas. "From competition to competition I would have lots of girls as "Where did you get that!" and one thing led to another! It's been fun getting it started!"
Christina Vargas is 27 years old and just getting started. As a lead member for Team Max Muscle, it's easy to spot her incredible figure and beauty. Look beyond that, and you can see this girls' mission is to make Nutrition, Cooking and Fitness foundations for a strong future for women in general.
"I can break myths by showing them the science behind what I do and why I do it." beamed Vargas. "In this industry you have to put it altogether to make sense. When Max Muscle Sports Nutrition proudly exclaims 'BE GREAT', they mean you can literally 'BE GREAT'. It all starts with a desire, then a plan to place that desire into measurable goals. That's why I am a member of Team Max Muscle and plan to take this experience as far as I possibly can for the sport of life."
