An Australian bodybuilder has died in her sleep from unknown causes. The woman was seemingly in good health at the time of her death.

Andy Page, a 32-year-old bodybuilder from the Gold Coast area of Queensland, Australia, complained of a "pain in her side" before going to bed on the night of June 4, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported. The next morning, she was found dead in her bed.

Although paramedics that were called to the bodybuilder's home administered CPR, they were not able to revive her, according to the Daily Mail. She was officially declared dead at the scene.

Queensland police said they received the call about Page's death around 3 p.m. June 5. Although authorities have not yet determined the cause of the woman's death, they do not believe foul play was involved.

Page's husband of two years, Nathan Page, confirmed her death on Facebook June 8.

"It is with our deepest sorrow to inform that Andy passed away in her sleep," he said, according to the Daily Mail. "No words can express this sudden and tragic event."

Page, who has been described as one of the healthiest and fittest women in Australia, posted a health tip on Instagram just hours before her death. The June 4 post advised Page's followers on how to make a nutritious, on-the-go breakfast using a banana and egg whites, and garnered thousands of views in five days.

Page began bodybuilding in 2012. She has won state and national titles in the sport and competed internationally.

She married fitness coach Nathan in 2014 in Sydney, Australia, where the couple opened their own fitness facility, Fitness Republic. Earlier in 2016, they sold the business and moved to the Gold Coast. 

Asha Burnley, a friend of the bodybuilder, told the Gold Coast Bulletin that Page had been working principally as a nutritionist before her death, in addition to coaching bodybuilding competitions and running a nutritional supplement business.

 "She was a beautiful soul with a kind heart who lived a life of contribution and always wanted to give back, help others and add value," Burnley said.

The bodybuilder, who had just celebrated her second wedding anniversary, was scheduled to co-host an online fitness seminar the week of June 13. The live event has now been dedicated to her memory.

Page's funeral took place at Somerville Chapel in Nerang, Australia, June 9.

The woman's boxing trainer, Jamie Myer, told the Gold Coast Bulletin that the bodybuilder had been recovering from a recent injury before her death, but that he does not believe she was using drugs.

"She just wasn't that kind of girl," Myer said.
