Majorova was born to a Hungarian father and a Slovak mother in 1974 in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia. She has a fraternal twin, František. Her father is a teacher while her mother is a nurse. Timea thanks her brothers and her father as major influences in her life for her athleticism. She "was always doing man's activities because of her two brothers." She calls herself a 'tomboy'. (Timea Majorova DVD). Besides being athletic, Timea is able to speak three languages fluently in addition to English: Hungarian, Russian and Slovak.
She began her studies in a Hungarian elementary school, and when she was 14 she moved to a medical school in Bratislava where she earned a degree in physical therapy.
Timea Majorova became involved in sport and fitness competitions at a very young age and she also tried herself in the fashion and beatuy world, having won a beauty contest. Her first fitness contest was the Ms. Slovakia Fitness Championships of 1994, where she placed 2nd. On February 14, 1997 Timea got her United States Visa. She then moved to Los Angeles in order to further pursue her fitness career, where she represented Slovakia in the European championships. She would finally win a championship in 1997, where she placed 1st in the Amateur World Championships. The 1997 win made her an IFBB Fitness Pro. Her first Fitness Olympia was in 1998, where she placed 6th. It was during the 1999 Fitness Olympia where Timea met Joe and Betsy Weider, which she considers a very important motivational figure in her life. In 1999 Timea won 5th place in the Arnold Classic. In total, she has taken part in more than twenty competitions.
