Mona Muresan is a Romanian-American fitness model, instructor, and entrepreneur famously known as the wife of Mike O’Hearn, an American bodybuilder, actor, model, and personal trainer. The couple has been married for a long while and welcomed a son, Titan, in 2019. While Mike’s career has made him a prominent figure, the Romanian-born Mona is also successful in her own right. She has caught the attention of many who wants to know more about her.
Mona Muresan was Born in Romania in 1975
The talented fitness instructor Mona Muresan was born in Romania on October 4, 1975. She is a very private person, and as a result, nothing much is known about her background and family. Although she hasn’t shared any info regarding her parents, their identity, where they are, and what they do for a living, we know she spent her early life in Romania.
Whether she has siblings or not also remains a mystery as the fitness enthusiast hasn’t hinted at this aspect of her life. Perhaps the only details she made available to the public is that she moved to the United States at age 18 in 1993. Before that, she completed her high school education in Romania before her family moved to America.
Upon arrival, her family settled in Nebraska. Muresan decided not to further her college education because she didn’t have money to see herself through college. She started doing menial jobs to make ends meet. She initially worked as a check girl at a Nebraska Steakhouse & Lounge. However, when the Lounge owner decided to sell it, Mona bought over the business in 2006.
She Began Her Fitness Career in the Mid-2000s
While working at the local steakhouse in Nebraska, it didn’t take much time before Mona got used to the American culture. She developed an interest in becoming a fitness trainer after seeing a young girl with six-pack abs and a toned physique. As a result, Mona Muresan hit the gym, and in 2008, she competed and won seven state and national fitness competitions.
With her 5 feet, 7 inches, 61kg frame, her efforts in the gym have finally paid off. However, it hasn’t been so rosy. When she started working out, doing heavy deadlifts was an arduous task, as Mona would spend hours running the treadmill. But today, she could lift heavy weights and do full-body workouts, which has helped her compete in various fitness competitions.
For instance, in 2011, she participated in the Pittsburgh pro-competition. Afterward, she went to the New York Pro Competition, where she finished in the 10th position, and Toronto Pro Competition, where she was placed in the 6th position. Her successes have seen her appear on the cover of notable fitness magazines such as Muscle & Fitness Hers Magazine and much more.
Mona Muresan Has an Effective Fitness Routine
Before achieving a well-toned body, Mona Murean developed an intriguing fitness routine that helped her achieve her goal in no time. She read nutrition and bodybuilding books that helped to polish her skills and improve on her regimen. However, her devotion and consistency played a major role in her success. According to her, she visits the gym six days a week.
Her typical workout regimen includes strength training, which lasts for 45 minutes, and abdominal drills that lasts for about 15 minutes every day. Because she is naturally slim, Mona limited cardio exercises to 20 minutes a couple of times a week. After working out for a year, she started seeing results which motivated her to venture into figure competition in 2008.
In recent times, Muresan advocates the essence of training by the feeling, which translates to training hard but not neglecting your body signs. According to the fitness expert, if she feels too sore to do exercise, she’d take a break. More so, if she thinks she could do extra, she doesn’t hesitate to go all in. All this knowledge has come from many years of experience and mastering how her body works.
The Fitness Expert Also Follows a Flawless Nutrition Plan
While Mona Muresan has worked so hard to get to where she is now, it is noteworthy that she didn’t achieve that only through exercise. The fitness instructor also follows a strict dietary plan to enable her to stay in shape all year round. According to her, she never fails to include avocadoes, vegetables, sweet potatoes, and chicken in her meal plan.
Similarly, Mona Muresan promotes less to zero tolerance on consuming refined sugars and inflammatory processed foods. As an online coach and fitness trainer, she has developed several plans that help people achieve their desired body, from adding weight to burning fat. She also has an App called the Mona Muresan Nutrition App, where one can register to be guided through exercise routines and dietary plans through their transformation journey.

Mona’s husband is famous for his role as Titan in the NBC TV show American Gladiators. He is also a four-time winner of Mr. Natural Universe and seven-time Fitness Model of the Year.
