All fitness fans have a goal body in mind. The fitness industry is a multi-million dollar business, pedalling products promising that elusive perfect figure. Whether it’s exercise videos, diet foods, subscriptions, memberships, or meetings, there’s always a new fad to fulfil your fitness goals. It’s an ongoing quest, that gets more challenging as bodies change and age.
But what about those people who have already reached physical perfection?
Those lucky few – who may have been so rare that people would hardly have believed they existed in the past – now have social media to show off their results. Fitness models who post tantalising shots of their bodies online never tire of telling fans that they achieved that perfection through hard work, healthy eating, dedication, and perseverance. From daily workouts to clean eating, fitness is a full-time job for these models. Should they lose that perfect body, it could mean they’re out of the job.
Outside of the entertainment business, fitness models also serve a purpose for the common people, as “fitspiration.” Followers of these Greek goddess-like people want to know exactly how they work out and what they’re eating, and they helpfully fill fans in on their Instagram and Facebook accounts, racking up hundreds of thousands of dedicated followers.
Whether you yourself are trying to get some fitspiration, or you just appreciate looking at those tight abs and even tighter butts, here is one of the sexiest and most influential fitness models to follow on social media in 2015.
Andreia Brazier is a personal trainer and fitness model, who was born in Porto Elegre, Brazil in 1978, and currently lives in Dubai. In 2001 she moved to Rio de Janeiro. This was the time in her life when she found the gym and got hooked on training. She was also working as a part time model for TV, magazines, Carnival and Bikini catalogs whilst also making time to design and sell her own jewellery.
In 2005 she decided to move to London and her complete life changed. She couldn’t speak English at all, she had experienced a different variation of challenges, such as working as a office cleaner, glass collector in a local pub, Cloakroom keeper in a night club and also doing make up and eyebrows designing for her Brazilian friends in London. After one year in London her English improved and she became a full time Personal trainer.
From her home in Dubai, she also runs her own lifestyle consultation fitness and health company A1Lifestyle. In her short career, this Brazilian beauty has competed in and won three major events in the WBFF (World Beauty Fitness and Fashion).
Her incredible physique, double-take definition, carved abs, drop-dead looks, and dazzling stage presence have won her repeated victories, and she's hungry for more. She is also Shredz Sponsored Athlete
When Andreia is not competing she enjoys going out for nice coffee and lunch, watching shows, having a spa treatment and getting away for a relaxing time.
Prior to establishing herself as a three-time WBFF Fitness World Champion, Andreia was always healthy although she never felt she really had a body to be proud of. "I use to eat 3 meals a day, such as breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sometimes I would just have another breakfast at dinner time. My meals were mainly carbohydrates such as pasta, rice, bread and potatoes etc. I was always into staying fit but lacked the motivation to really achieve my goals. I got to a stage at the end of 2011 where I was hardly training and my motivation levels had dropped completely."
So she decided to make a lifestyle choice at the beginning of 2012 and to set out to achieve her dream physique and ensure she achieved it.
Andrea says: "I love the fitness lifestyle so much and I have always wanted to dominate in this sport. In everything I do I always give it my absolute 100%. To be the best you have to train like the best."
