Well, not really. But one of the fittest women I ever met does live in Zurich, and her name is Cinderella.
I’m back with my regular interview of fitness role models, this time it’s Cinderella (Cindy) Landolt’s turn. Cindy is a 26 years old successful entrepreneur and fitness model and the newest of my online friends on bodybuilding.com. Aside from that, she is one of the most popular female athletes on facebook.
As many of the regular readers have noticed, this “blogzine” is very eclectic, and I have talked about finance, unemployment, movies and fitness
In June I interviewed Christina Adler, one of my newest friends in this whole fitness stage of my life, and got a lot of good feedback from many parts of the world. So, I immediately thought about starting a new, semi regular section to interview people I know and who are excellent fitness role models.
In an earlier post, I talked about how I am trying to apply my Wall Street Quant skills to areas other than finance. One of those is data mining of social networks. But before doing any data mining, I needed to join a social network.
When people talk about social networks, most immediately think about Facebook; but there are others. Depending on your goal, finding the right social network can improve your odds of reaching it. If your goal is to make friends with a wide range of interests, Facebook is fine. For professional networking, Linkedin is great. For my fitness goal, I wanted to meet professionals close to my age, looking to improve physically in a rational way. I joined Bodyspace, owned by bodybuilding.com.
I love America. It’s my adopted homeland, and I have lived here more than half my life in a great city, in a great country. I went through a lot to earn my citizenship, and every day I feel lucky that I did.
It is because of this that I can say: our nation is headed in the wrong direction in many areas: health, social issues, foreign policy, to name a few broad areas.
