Imagine growing up in a small country town, the youngest among 10 siblings, raised on a ranch in an organic environment that instilled values and discipline rather than material wealth. Skie Molinar’s childhood laid the foundation for a life driven by passion, hard work, and the pursuit of dreams. We at CIO Global, are proud to have Skie Molinar as one of the Influential Women in Fitness, 2023.

Skie’s journey began with early mornings, feeding animals and working on the ranch under her father’s guidance. This upbringing instilled in her a strong work ethic and discipline. Despite humble beginnings, Skie’s family was rich in values and morals, teaching her the importance of respect for all, regardless of status or race.

At the age of 13-14, Skie discovered her love for Barrel Racing. Fueled by determination, she subscribed to Western Horsemanship magazine, learning from her favorite Barrel Racer. This marked the beginning of her journey into the world of competition, where she excelled in 4H horse shows.

Transitioning to Junior High, Skie’s interests expanded to basketball, earning her a spot on the A team and later on the High School Varsity Team as a freshman. However, a turning point occurred while watching a bodybuilding show featuring legends like Arnold Schwarzenegger. The transformations she witnessed sparked a passion that would eventually redefine her path. Despite societal norms at the time, where women were not encouraged to compete, Skie held onto her dream. Life took her through various experiences, from competing in dance contests to becoming a single parent. Challenges didn’t deter her; they fueled her determination.

Skie’s pivotal moment came when she stumbled upon a Muscle & Fitness Magazine, featuring women who defied expectations. This reignited her passion, leading her to educate herself through the magazine and interactions with fellow gym enthusiasts in Odessa, TX. She went off to graduate with outstanding honor roll from Physical Therapy  school in San Antonio, TX despite of her dislexia. She pursued her passion for bodybuilding, competing professionally as a Drug-Free athlete and gaining recognition in fitness magazines.

“In the process, I learned that the mind is powerful and with imagery along with discipline and hard work would bring forth my Passion and Dream.” – Skie Molinar

Beyond competitions, Skie discovered her purpose – to inspire and empower others. This realization led her to establish “Skies The Limit Wellness & Fitness Clinic.” Her business embodies her motto: Speak life into others, Know your purpose, Inspire others, and Empower others. Skie’s integrity and dedication have attracted collaborations with professional athletes and icons in the fitness industry. She continued to evolve, obtaining certifications in Anti-Aging & Sports Medicine and Professional Pilates instruction.

Throughout life’s challenges, including a divorce, single parenthood, and the pandemic, Skie never gave up. She used these experiences as opportunities for reflection, growth, and restarting. Her story is not just about personal success but about giving back and making a difference. Skie’s commitment to empowering others extends to her YouTube channel, where she shares her journey, and she’s currently working on a Fitness App, improving her website, and writing books.
