Gina Carano is an American professional wrestler, television personality, weight trainer, and personal trainer. She is well known for her winning record as an amateur fighter. Also having started her career as an amateur Muay Thai kick boxer, she quickly earned much recognition as a women’s MMA champion. Nowadays, Gina is also very popular in the realm of kickboxing and has trained some of the top women in the world. Her cardio prowess earned her the respect of many martial artists and kickboxers. Additionally, her striking ability earned her a shot in the UFC wherein she fought Randastrateo Johnson.
The name Gina Carano comes from her original triathlon bike riding experience which lead to her gaining a deep interest for martial arts. Carano studied with some of the best martial art masters in the United States before joining forces with Deadmoon gym, a well-known Kung Fu and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school. There she honed her skills in the field of martial arts including grappling, takedowns, and submission holds. Carano also trained in Thai boxing and became a kickboxer known as Gina Carano. In her first encounter in Thailand she knocked out “Wong Kolyi” (tops opponent at the time) and she earned a silver medal at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, specializing in Knee and Omen Health and Self Defense.

Most notably, she fought and beat Holly Holm via a submission hold that was unique and executed perfectly. At the same time, she has also impressed fans with her wins over female fighters ranging from Shootfighters To Xplosive Women. Gina Carano is definitely one of the most exciting fighters in the female division today.
The other two members of the famed Team Alpha are Jessica Aguilar and Sarah Kaufman. Both women have performed superbly in their matches against other formidable opponents. The two women have impressed the MMA world with their technique and agility, particularly in their matches against women who are not as skilled as them. As both women have shown they can easily win against any female fight, either by submission or with a knockout.
Currently, Carano is working with a fitness model and actor Gabrielle Reece. She has dabbled into acting and doing stand up comedy but her biggest break to date would have to be her role as an instructor in Kung Fu to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. While she certainly has experience in martial arts, it is her extensive knowledge in nutrition and lifestyle that make her an excellent coach. Her methods for transforming a slim young woman into a muscular and aerobic fitness model will be inspirational to women of all ages.
Currently, Carano is enjoying a large fan base online, thanks to her appearances on television and in films. Although it can be said that the great matchmaking that was between her and Urijah Faber during their first encounter in the USA was one of the main reasons for her success, Haywire Magazine sees it as well, hailing her as the best mixed martial arts fighter of our times.
