Komang Arnawa is not your average World Champion athlete. Born into a family of humble Balinese priests spanning 2 generations, Komang embraces a personal philosophy of Life in Balance, centered on the realization that strength of all forms originates from within, and is fine tuned with the pursuit of knowledge.
Komang evokes a positive and appreciative mindset to nurture his Life in Balance belief and to fuel his professional aspirations in fitness and wellness.
This attitude has thus far paved the way for an incredible journey from penurious childhood to undefeated champion of 6-successive international bodybuilding titles, to Director of bodiku; his fitness & wellness management company, to the subject of Portfolio Productions award winning documentary ‘Earth Meets Wind, to the President of IFBB Indonesia.
Komang brings to his Fitness Professional role, a training philosophy focused on creating a lifestyle in harmony with becoming your best; physically, mentally, spiritually and socially, from a mind, body, food perspective.
His charismatic personality, and remarkable physical presence, offers a welcome assurance that you are definitely in capable hands and have found an ideal guide to fine-tune your own version of Life in Balance.
Komang Arnawa rose to fame as a drug free competitor in the international bodybuilding arena and twice holds the highest honor in the sport as Pro World Champion (2004 and 2005).
He was crowned champion of his last six successive competitions, became one of the youngest ever Pro World Champions and holds the highest honor in the sport as PNBA Pro Natural Olympia Champion.
Arnawa remains undefeated as the World’s top ‘drug free’ bodybuilder.
Career highlights :
2004 MuscleMania Pro World Champion (Pro Division) California, USA
2005 INBA Pro Natural Olympia Champion (Pro Division) Las Vegas, Nevada
2008 IFBB Elite Australia Champion (Pro Am) Perth, WA
He is also a performance nutrition specialist, who curates his knowledge of fitness & wellness programs from experience and science based principles, to reach and maintain physical, mental, social and spiritual health.
Arnawa’s Balinese spirituality is the force behind his winning attitude towards life.
He believes that one’s reaction to a situation stems from how greatly he values himself and how much he appreciates life and all it offers.
I caught up with the aspiring champ, to discover how ‘training smart’ has helped him to progress to where he is today with a modest attitude and humble nature.
Becoming a drug free contender is the highest compliment I can attain at world champion status.
Taking substances such as steroids, for me personally, simply does not fit with my philosophies. People are often sceptical when they read I am a lifetime drug free athlete. I take this as the ultimate compliment.
