A gymnast from an early age, Mari Kudla-Donnelly was a very shy child who hated the attention of the gymnastic floor but because of her love for the sport she stayed at it. But eventually Mari would realize that although she started her gymnastic career early, it wasn’t quite early enough and she began to realize that she would eventually have to let it go; a hard decision but it would eventually pay off. She would go on to attend Ohio State and it was there that she found her love of exercise and the gym. It was here where she was introduced to Mike Davies, and it was here that she decided if she wasn’t going to a be a competitive gymnast any more, she might as well give fitness competitions a go. It was a good experience and through Mikes help she would win her first show. She would do 7 shows that year, placing in the top 3 in every one, including 3 overall titles. By 2002 with the introduction of figure to the IFBB, Mari set her sights on an IFBB pro figure card. That same year, and after less then a year after giving birth, Mari earned her pro card at Nationals.
