Santana Anderson


Santana Anderson is an IFBB Pro Canadian bodybuilder, born and raised in the small fishing community of Canso, Nova Scotia. Like most youngsters, Santana began lifting weights when he picked up a bodybuilding magazine at the age of twelve – he knew instantly that he wanted to look just like the athletes on those pages. His love of weight training led him to working as a personal trainer and eventually Anderson opened up his own supplement shop.

Santana Anderson’s road to the pros began in 2002 when he start training for his first show where he placed second as a light heavy. Over the course of the next four years, Anderson had varying successes at the national level but decided to put bodybuilding on the back burner to finish up his degree and start a family with wife Lisa. 2010 marked Santana Anderson’s return to the sport, and with the help of training partner Salim Satir, he would win the CBBF Nationals and earn his IFBB Pro Card. As a pro, Santana Anderson cracked into the top 10 at the 2012 FIBO Germany, placing 9th in a very competitive line-up.
