Gule Sheikh[6] was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario. She moved to Toronto in 1998 where she attended school and university to pursue Software Development and an aggressive career in Technology.[7] After several years of an unhealthy lifestyle and her development of adult asthma she became interested in nutrition and exercise. With a competitive streak, Sheikh realized that she was more interested in fitness competitions[8] and strictly began her journey in pushing towards her goals.

Today, she is the first Pakistani[9] female fitness competitor, where she has won 1st place in two competitions back to back within 2 weeks. She has quickly become a South Asian role model in health and wellness.[10] She is active in various fitness competitions in Canada and the USA.
