EXCLUSIVE: Shredded Academy Interviews Hungarian Beauty Anita Herbert

Anita Herbert is a 29 year old professional fitness and bikini athlete. She has won a number of competitions and awards over the past three years (when she started her career in fitness) and in 2017 received her Pro Card after entering the IFBB Arnold Amateur North America and placing 2nd!

Before all of this, however, Anita was a normal kid, never really going into the gym while in her teens. She even admits that, during her college years, she was a bit of a partier; drinking and eating junk food on a regular basis, but obviously that is all long in the past. Check out how she made the change and maintains that fit physique.
