Victor Martinez was born in 1973 in San Francisco de Macoris, Dominican Republic. When he was a child, he moved with his family to New York.
As a teenager he used to play baseball, basketball and football. From playing competitive sports he easily transitioned into weight lifting and training.
Victor's bodybuilding career started in 1997 when he competed in the NPC New York Metropolitan Championships where he won the Light-heavyweight Class and the Overall Title.
In 2001 he competed in his first IFBB Pro event, the Night of Champions, and placed 8th. Ever since Martinez went pro it seemed he was destined to be the next Mr. Olympia. He placed 9th at the IFBB Mr. Olympia in 2004, then 5th in 2005, 3rd in 2006, and 2nd in 2007 where he lost from Jay Cutler. In 2007 he won the first place at the IFBB Arnold Classic which is one of his career's highlights.
