Date of Birth: September 15, 1996
Born and raised in the heart of Colorado, Larkspur (USA), Sommer Ray spent his childhood playing sports frequently due to his parents’ occupations. As competitive bodybuilders, they had to travel to compete in fitness shows. Eventually, however, his family decided to settle in Lone Tree, Colorado (USA). This is where Sommer was encouraged to embark on her fitness journey at the age of 15 in 2012.
Under the guidance of her parents, Sommer began lifting weights at the basement gym, aiming to follow in her mother’s footsteps and compete as a bikini athlete.
In 2012, at the age of 16, it was clear that Sommer had excellent genetics. Just a year after starting his fitness journey, he managed to build an incredible physique. As a result, Sommer’s parents encouraged her to sign up for her first show as a bikini athlete that year. Although not an immediate success, Sommer improved his performances over the next 2 years. Among his most notable achievements are his victories at the 2015 NPC Colorado State Championship, where he won 2 trophies.
Proud of her accomplishments as a bikini athlete, Sommer began posting pictures and videos of her workouts and lifestyle on an Instagram account in 2016. It didn’t take long for the bodybuilding community to fall in love with Sommer’s incredible physique, which resulted in him gaining followers very quickly. Sommer quickly became a social media and fitness icon, inspiring countless women around the world with her work.
As with all things, with fame came the haters. Sommer Ray has earned many negative reviews as well as fans. But this did not affect him; Sommer began vlogging on YouTube as a backlash, stating that her pictures on social media are not an accurate representation of who she really is. Since then, the fitness community has shown more respect for Sommer and managed to connect with him through his vlogs. Sommer Ray has 26.8m followers on Instagram with the username sommerray.
