Originally from Hungary, Anita Herbert is now based in the USA after moving there after visiting her friend in Miami.
She is a professional bikini athlete and fitness model, whose physique has amassed many fans and social media followers across the globe.
What may surprise you is that Anita did not originally want to pursue a career in fitness, this journey only began after meeting her husband. However, since they met with his encouragement she has become one of the leading and most definitely most popular fitness models around.
Lets find out a little more of her story.
Her Early Years
Anita was born and raised in a small town near Budapest in Hungary.
She did not lead a particularly fitness focussed lifestyle, with a love of partying and alcohol her focus as a young woman.
It wasn’t until 2012, having graduated from College that Anita made her life-changing decision to move to America.
While she continued to party for a few years her genetics allowed her to remain lean. However, this soon changed.
In 2014, at the age of 24 Anita had become bored with her lifestyle and wanted to settle down. She met her husband and began her fitness journey following a strict diet and regularly working out at the gym.
Being Inspired by Michelle Lewin
While Anita, with the help of her husband was able to sculpt a pretty incredible physique, it wasn’t until she met one of her hero’s Michelle Lewin that she decided it was time to compete in bodybuilding shows.
With her new-found motivation gained from meeting one of her idols, she took part in her first competition. The 2015 NPC Southern States and CJ’s Classic, which she duly won.
Over the coming year she competed in various other shows, dominating the competition winning the:
- 2015 NPC Miami Muscle Beach Contest, 1st and Overall
- 2015 NPC , 1st and Overall
- 2015 NPC Sunshine Classic, 1st and Overall
- 2015 NPC Tampa Bay, 1st and Overall
In 2016, Anita entered the IFBB Arnold Amateur North America. While she didn’t win this event her final placing (she came second) was enough to help her gain an IFBB Pro Card.
Following on from this high, she competed in three more shows in 2016, winning one (the IFBB Fort Lauderdale Cup).
With her success on the stage, her online popularity continued to grow. Her social media accounts are full of followers who admire her physique.
While her success has come quickly, this should not detract from the obvious hard work and sacrifice she has made.
