Andrina Santoro

Fitnessmodel & Sport addicted

Hi, I'm Andrina Santoro

I am Andrina and I was born on November 2nd, 1992. I was born in Switzerland, I am from Zurich and have Italian roots. More precisely, my dad is from southern Italy (Lecce) and my mother is Swiss with German roots. Like almost everyone (who just didn’t know what to do) I have a commercial education with a matura diploma. Since April 2020 I am also a proud mom of Coco and Jambo – two Bengal cats.

Ambitions

I am ambitious, sporty and disciplined. This was already evident in my childhood, because I started dancing when I was 6 years old. Dancing was then my passion and I invested most of my time in dancing until I was about 16 years old. After that I wanted to do something new, to find something I am really good at!

Passion

I started to visit the gym regularly, initially only because of various back tensions and headaches. My doctor advised me to build up my muscles. When I saw and noticed my physical and mental progress, I became even more motivated. And so began my fitness journey. Fitness became my new passion.

Success

In 2016 I even became Swiss champion in bikini fitness after I suffered an enormous setback in 2015 with near-death experiences. I was in an artificial coma for 2 weeks because of pneumonia.

After this stroke of fate I travelled a lot. Because I realized how precious life is. You only live once and you should do what makes you happy!

Highlight

A highlight for me was 2019, when I was allowed to travel to South Africa to shoot a Swiss TV series – the Bachelorette. The show turned my life upside down again. It was a great experience that I wouldn’t want to miss.

I am curious where my journey will take me.
