Vivi Winkler is a former cheerleader for the University of Miami. She has appeared in some ads for McDonald’s, a German beer maker, and was also in a commercial for a Florida nightclub. Today she’s a personal trainer and works with the Miami Heat as a swim training specialist. As well, she is an exercise physiologist and has been working with Olympic and world record holders.
Her credentials are quite impressive. Winkler is a certified strength and conditioning specialist with the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). She is also a certified life coach with the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). All this training and counseling mean that she knows what she is doing when it comes to fitness models and performing well in her jobs Vivi Winkler.
But, is Vivi Winkler the next genetically engineered supermodel? She certainly has the looks and the appeal – but is she ready for the professional life? It may very well be true that she is one of the youngest and least mature fitness models, but that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t had any kind of professional experience in the field. She worked with a physical therapist while she was in high school and went on to perform strength and conditioning therapy work with the Miami Dolphins.
So, how will she fare as a professional fitness model? It’s hard to imagine that she’ll do well in a commercial where she’s just trying out various poses and getting mass amounts of water thrown at her. It seems that she’ll have a better chance with something like the Beach Life with Sony video. This is something that she has done in the past and obviously has some knowledge of, but it doesn’t appear to have done much to advance her career.
Is it possible that Vivi Winkler is a fitness model because she’s so young? This is something that has been discussed at length on many message boards, but I think the answer would be yes. It’s also true that she has a rather large body, and this has led to all manner of speculation as to whether or not it is suitable for a career in modeling. To be honest, the only reason that I can think of for this is simply due to the fact that she was born with the kind of shape that models are usually associated with. It’s also been speculated that her tiny physique might prevent her from achieving the same kind of success that other older models would have.
However, even though she is relatively young, it doesn’t mean that she hasn’t done anything to advance her career. The first thing that she did when she was a senior in high school was to start a modeling career. She appeared in a few different campaigns and later in college went to work for a design firm. While at the firm she also started to do photo shoots and even small fashion shows – which of course led to a contract with a catalog company. From there she was able to move forward in a career that many fitness models only dream about. In recent years, Vivi Winkler has developed a reputation for being one of the best fitness models, so I wouldn’t see why people doubt her ability – especially after seeing her appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
