Who is Natasha Aughey?

Natasha Aughey was born in Ottawa, Canada, on 18 March 1993 – her zodiac sign is Pisces, and she holds Canadian nationality. She’s a professional body builder, fitness model and a social media star, who became internationally recognized after winning several Federation of Bodybuilding competitions in 2013 and 2014.

Early life and education

Natasha grew up in Ottawa alongside her younger sister, Michaela. Natasha was an active child, and participated in sports, such as track, soccer and volleyball. She started going to the gym on a regular basis during her high school days, initially only doing cardio, but since she didn’t see the progress she was expecting, she consulted with a trainer, and started incorporating weightlifting into her routine.

She ended up loving it so much that bodybuilding ultimately became her full-time career. After matriculating high school in 2011, Natasha started working as a fitness trainer at a local gym, and obtained a CanFitPro Level 1 Trainer certificate. As she chose to focus on her career early on, she hasn’t attended college.

Career as a fitness model

A few years into her fitness journey, Natasha became recognized in the local fitness community for her exceptional physique. In 2012, at the suggestion of her friends, she created her Instagram account onto which she started regularly uploading progress pictures and photos of her workouts, which gained her further recognition amongst other bodybuilding enthusiasts.

In the following year, she entered the OPA Ottawa Championship, placing 6th in the Figure category.

In 2014, she competed again, winning her first title. Natasha entered the Evogen Nutrition competition in 2015, placing 3rd at the Toronto Super Show; she wasn’t satisfied with her results and hasn’t competed again.

She then fully switched her focus to working with her clients and posting on Instagram, and by 2016, she became a social media sensation. As her popularity on the platform grew, she started collaborating with various brands, including Black Stone Labs, Celestial Bodie and Redcon1 Canada. As of October 2021, her Instagram account numbers more than 1.4 million followers.

YouTube channel

Natasha launched her YouTube channel in September 2015, and soon began regularly uploading videos related to fitness, in which she shares helpful tips about training and diet, and goes into her exercise routine in details. She has said that she created the channel to motivate and share her own experience with others. Aside from fitness videos, she occasionally posts vlogs from her camping and hiking trips, sharing her other passion with her audience.

Her most popular video is entitled “Natasha Aughey – Leg Day”, which has been viewed more than eight million times. Natasha’s channel numbers more than 380,000 subscribers, and over 30 million total views.

Natasha’s fitness routine

Natasha trains six days per week, taking one day off to recover and rest her muscles.

She doesn’t do full body workouts, but instead opts to target different muscle groups each day, staring with her back on Mondays. On Tuesdays, she primarily trains glutes and hamstrings, while Wednesdays are dedicated to chest and biceps. The following day, she targets quadriceps and does plyometric leg exercises, followed by triceps training on Fridays, ending her week by training shoulders on Saturday. She does most of her exercises in four to five sets of up to 25 repetitions, increasing the weight once she notices the movement has become too easy for her.

Natasha doesn’t follow a strict diet plan, but makes sure to consume enough protein-rich, nutritious food, and to meet her caloric requirements. Unlike some other fitness gurus, she doesn’t avoid eating carbohydrates, as she considers them to be an essential part of a balanced diet.

She’s a strong believer that you can enjoy any food you like in reasonable quantities, and she often cooks healthy versions of popular foods, but isn’t afraid to have a cheat meal every now and then. She has revealed that she likes to make healthy recipes she stumbles upon online, but when she doesn’t know what to make, she opts for a simple chicken and rice dish.

Rumors about steroid usage

As Natasha became a prominent figure in the fitness community, many started wondering if her progress has been enhanced by the use of steroids. Primarily, people have been pointing out that her upper body is very strong and muscular, with wide shoulders, which is something that a lot of women who do weightlifting find difficult to achieve.

However, Natasha has adamantly denied those rumors, and has attributed her ability to develop more muscle mass than most women to her genetics.

Love life and relationships

Natasha is a very private person, who has never talked about her love life on social media, thus not a lot is known about whom she might be dating. This sparked some rumors about her possibly being a lesbian, but those haven’t been confirmed by Natasha. However, it seems that she is more focused on her career at the moment, rather than dating.

Natasha currently appears to be single, hasn’t been married or engaged, and doesn’t have children

Hobbies and interesting facts

Natasha loves spending time in nature, and enjoys going camping and hiking with her friends.

One of the first things she did after purchasing a house a few months ago was building her personal gym in the basement. This made her life easier, as she doesn’t have to commute to a gym ever day, although she still sometimes trains in public gyms when she wants to switch things up.

Natasha likes to play video games in her spare time, with her favorites being games from the “Pokémon” franchise, which she started playing as a child on her Game Boy Color console. Furthermore, she collects “Pokémon” cards.

She also likes to watch anime series, with some of her all-time favorites being “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure”, “Jujutsu Kaisen” and “My Hero Academia”.
