Don’t let Ana Cheri’s looks throw you off. Besides being a fitness and bikini model, the M&F June Iron Maiden says she’s really a tomboy at heart. It was probably because of all that skateboarding she did growing up. Here’s what else she had to say.

M&F: Would you say you’re a girlie girl or can you get your hands dirty sometimes?

Ana Cheri: I’d like to say I’m more of a girlie girl these days, but growing up with four brothers, playing football and basketball was a given.  When I go home, the rowdiness definitely comes out!

M&F: What’s your favorite workout; how do you keep in shape these days?

AC: I’m a huge fan of “leg day” and I’m always doing lower body.  I can’t get enough of it.  And I also deadlift.  My max was 205 lbs. and I’m like 125 lbs. I was really proud of myself on that one!


M&F: Any crazy stories from modeling shoots?

AC: I was once doing a pretty risqué bikini shoot on the beach in Malibu and this school field trip came around the corner out of nowhere.  I scrambled to find a towel.  At first I was so embarrassed and then we just laughed about the whole thing, the timing was awful, but the look on the parents’ faces was priceless!

M&F: As you said, you grew up in house full of boys. So playing with action figures seems like a no brainer?

AC: I love superheroes, it’s crazy!  My favorites are Thor and Batman.  I’m also a big fan of the television series Gotham.

M&F: When you’re working out what could a guy do to get your attention?

AC: Not wear cologne!  I hate it when guys wear cologne to the gym.  When I’m working out heavy and inhaling a lot, I don’t want to breathe in your aftershave.  Just take a shower!


M&F: So besides not wearing cologne to the gym, what else do you find attractive in a guy?

AC: When I see that a guy is being genuinely kind to other people and not just to impress me.  That’s the most attractive thing to me, that gets me every time.
