Shenendehowa’s Isabella Gretzinger excels in both wrestling and fitness influencing in Section 2 girls’ wrestling


CLIFTON PARK — Isabella Gretzinger, a senior at Shenendehowa, has become a social media sensation with her TikTok and Instagram accounts, where she shares her fitness journey and wrestling achievements with her 116,000 and 47,100 followers, respectively.

At the age of 13, Gretzinger weighed over 200 pounds, but through hard work and dedication, she has managed to bring her weight down to under 150 pounds. Her inspiring transformation has garnered her a large following on social media, where she promotes the message that anyone can make positive changes in their life.

Aside from her social media presence, Gretzinger is also a talented wrestler and has recently committed to wrestle at Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina.

What sets Gretzinger apart from other influencers is her authenticity. She believes in being true to herself and encourages others to do the same.

Her high school wrestling coach, Dan Palmerino, describes her as an anomaly, juggling her social media presence with her full-time athletic training and academic responsibilities.

Despite only starting wrestling in her junior year of high school, Gretzinger has already achieved great success, becoming the first-ever girls’ state champion in the 152-pound division last January.

Looking ahead, Gretzinger is excited to continue her wrestling journey at Presbyterian College, where she felt an instant connection and a sense of belonging during her visit.

However, her ambitions don’t stop there. She also has her sights set on participating in a bodybuilding show before heading off to college, showcasing her dedication to both wrestling and bodybuilding.

As she prepares for the next chapter in her life, Gretzinger remains focused on inspiring others through her social media platforms and her incredible journey of transformation and success.
