Zandria Theis has been in the modeling industry for 10 years starting when she was just
14 years old in Dallas, Texas. Getting into modeling at such a young age, she found out
how important it was to stay healthy in a world that focuses so much on body image.
Finding the Model Fitness Method™ was the most important part of that journey.


Zandria is now based in Los Angeles pursuing her modeling career while also tapping
into all her interests, including fitness and costume design. When Zandria isn’t modeling
or instructing for Runway Fitness, you can find her goofing off with her husband and dog
Lulu.
