Listening to what you want to hear and listening to what you need to hear are two very different things.

Fitness is just like that. Pretty cut and dry even when the face telling you the truth is very pretty.

Anja Zeidler, a Swiss Fitness Trainer is very, very pretty and part of the attraction to her services is that she tells you what you need to hear.

She also practices what she preaches and when you admire her form you can see that she is achieving exceptional results.

For example, she makes it very clear that Fitness is not about diets or diet pills. That’s a good thing right? As the beautiful woman and female athlete that you are, you can eat normally so to speak.

A sample of her favorite foods are almond crusted chicken, filled with spinach, some peanut butter sauce, some quinoa and green beans.


She also loves sweet potatoes mashed, baked and in chips.

The tough news that she often lays out is that you can’t lay on your cute behind which will get larger if you don’t put the work in on a regular basis.

“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”…John F. Kennedy 

As of this writing it appears that Anja is living in America so let’s meet her.

At her enjoyable site she smiles and provides you with her resume in the third person.

“Anja was born on July, 27 in 1993 in Lucerne, Switzerland. She grew up in a family of four and is the youngest of two children.

Since Anja is a little girl, she knows how to stand out. People get entertained, turn around and pay attention to her. Against the willing of her model agency she got her first tattoo (later followed by many more). “No one can tell me what I have to do or not to do!”

At age 14 Anja started modeling. She did plenty of campaign photo- & video shoots, fashion shows and a lot more. At 19 she has already been on well-known magazine covers and filled the pages of FHM, MAXIM, GQ and many more. Nothing was achieved without hard work of course – Anja needed to get fit for these photoshoots, especially after her weight gain caused to her four months language exchange in California! While trying to fight those extra pounds, she discovered an unknown passion: Weightlifting! Anja built herself an empire in the fitness industry.

She has become a role model and inspiration to many people out here. Nothing is impossible, it’s all about mindset and how much you willing to work for it.

Today at age 22 Anja has her own online fitness program and promotes herself through social media. article, photo article, photo

After all, you are famous when the fun site announces you to the world. “She’s been featured as a Muscle & Fitness Iron Maiden in nearly a dozen countries.

TRIVIA Like many models, she’s developed a social media presence in her career, boasting more than 210,000 followers on Twitter 30,000 subscribers on YouTube. FAMILY LIFE She grew up in Luzern, Switzerland and speaks German.”

We appreciate how wonderfully Anja’s village influenced and raised her.

Let’s please travel to Lucerne.

Lucerne is a city in central Switzerland, in the German-speaking portion of the country.

Lucerne is the capital of the canton of Lucerne and part of the district of the same name. With a population of about 81,057 people (as of 2013), Lucerne is the most populous town in Central Switzerland, and a nexus of economics, transportation, culture, and media of this region.

Owing to its location on the shore of Lake Lucerne, within sight of the mounts Pilatus and Rigi in the Swiss Alps, Lucerne has long been a destination for tourists. One of the city’s famous landmarks is the Chapel Bridge, a wooden bridge first erected in the 14th century.

The official language of Lucerne is (the Swiss variety of Standard) German, but the main spoken language is the local variant of the Alemannic Swiss German dialect.

It’s time for the locals to share insights. At the informative site they enlighten, “As a city of festivals, Lucerne offers a year-round program of music and culture that’s both rich and unique: classical music, brass bands, blues, jazz, fine food, comics/fumetti, theatre – not to mention one of Lucerne’s best-loved traditions: the Lucerne carnival. The city’s passion for music enjoys a long tradition. The main concert hall in the KKL Luzern is the scene of music-making excellence featuring soloists, conductors and orchestras of world renown. Here you will find full details of all the various festivals and events taking place in and around Lucerne.”

To give you the full tour the global travel experts at Lonely Planet share, “Recipe for a gorgeous Swiss city: take a cobalt lake ringed by mountains of myth, add a well-preserved medieval Altstadt (Old Town) and a reputation for making beautiful music, then sprinkle with covered bridges, sunny plazas, candy-colored houses and waterfront promenades. Lucerne is stunning, and deservedly popular since the likes of Goethe, Queen Victoria and Wagner savored her views in the 19th century. Legend has it that an angel with a light showed the first settlers where to build a chapel in Lucerne, and today it still has amazing grace.”

Anja is amazing and graceful as well. It’s the feminine Swiss way.

This fitness beauty is very wise and shares some wisdom and encouragement for those of you who are thinking about a solid fitness routine but are not yet involved.

In an interview with when asked about the secret to a great body, Anja replied, “There is no secret. It’s not easy, because if it would be, everyone would do it. It takes a lot of discipline & willpower. The secret – if you want to call it one – is to believe in yourself, never give up & “Keep Going”.

Sometimes the truth hurts but if you listen and apply, it can get you a fantastic body.
