“Inspirational” is one word that can be used to describe Vanda’s thrilling fitness career. From her championship results, to the ways she gives back to the sport, Vanda is truly a fitness inspiration. In only four years, this natural beauty and fierce contender has cemented herself as one of the best fitness competitors ever.
It took two years for a good friend (Yvette Mongeon) of Vanda’s to convince her to try competing in fitness modeling and fitness routines. However, once Vanda started, she quickly became widely known as a challenger for both the fitness model and fitness routine titles. Vanda has gone on to win almost every fitness routine competition she has entered, and either won or placed high in every fitness model competition as well. Taking the fitness scene by storm, Vanda presents a package of beauty, strength, talent and poise that is hard to beat. Brian Cannone of Fitness Atlantic remarks, “Vanda took fitness competitions to another level. When I think of fitness competitions, I now think of her as setting the bar with the highest standard. There is Vanda, and then there is everyone else.” President of Fitness Universe Pageant, Louis Zwick states,“Vanda brings to the performance stage, world class skills mixed with elegance and charm fitting an international star.”
Although Vanda is known for her accomplishments as a competitor, it is the person as a whole that makes her special. Mixing together the characteristics of an elite Olympic athlete (Barcelona silver medalist), a World class fitness competitor (Ms. Fitness World), a top notch coach and trainer (competitive gymnastics and other fitness competitors), you will begin to see the complete person of Vanda. She has the heart of a lion as a competitor, and the heart of a lamb as a person who loves to give and help others grow. Her passion for the fitness arena has lead Vanda to start coaching and training other people as young as 6 yrs old, to pursue the sport that she loves.
In 2008, Vanda made the full time transition from competitive gymnastics coach to the health and fitness industry. Now more than ever, this will now enable Vanda to personally compete as well as coach and train others to compete. Look for Vanda to continue to rise as an international fitness star.
