Vivi Viviane Winkler is a model and a bodybuilder, who gained recognition after she competed in the bodybuilding Liga Carioca Championship, finishing as the runner-up.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 2 May 1991, Viviane Winkler Lourenco was raised in Rio De Janeiro by her mother, a teacher at a local high school, and her father, who works at a local factory. Having spent a lot of time watching movies and TV series in her free time, she was interested in acting from a very young age, but everything changed when she started modelling at age 21. She was overweight when she was a teenager, and some of her classmates bullied her and laughed when she dreamed of being an actress, which led Vivi to start going to the gym. When she graduated, she decided not to attend college because she wanted to lose weight. She then went on to pursue her modeling and bodybuilding careers. Having realized her dream of becoming a fitness model and creating her dream physique, Vivi’s Instagram account (@viviwinkler) has gained a large following. It’s here that she has obtained international attention from women worldwide who are seeking to improve their physical appearance.
