Zuzana “Zuzka” Light is a popular fitness professional known for her Youtube conditioning videos. The well-known fitness model Zuzana Majorova (her original name) from the Czech Republic, however, started her career in the adult films industry before becoming a fitness influencer.
Before moving to North America, Light worked as a model and a softcore model under the name “Susana Spears.” The experience, in her own words, was “incredibly humiliating” and getting into fitness has helped her to heal emotionally and “rebuild her confidence and sense of self worth”. She also says that she was lucky to survive the whole adult industry experience.
Currently, Zuzka lives in Los Angeles, California and runs a popular fitness instruction channel on YouTube. That is how she describes her own deal:
“My channel is all about fitness, healthy lifestyle and holistic health. I post tips about exercise and diet every single week.” says Zuzka about her video channel. “I’ve been a fitness professional for the past ten years. I have my own online subscription club ZGYM™ at ZuzkaLight.com where you can find all the workouts and diet advice you need to get in the best shape of your life. ”
Before starting her current YouTube channel, Light co-founded the fitness website and YouTube channel “BodyRock.tv” with then-husband Frederick Light. The couple split in 2011 and divorced in 2013.
She has appeared on national TV advertising companies such as Airbus, Gambrinus, and Raiffeisen Bank. She has contributed to various fitness publications, such as Shape Magazine, BodyBuilding.com, and multiple other news outlets.
Zuzka is also an author to a book that was released back in 2015 called “15 Minutes to Fit: The Simple 30-Day Guide to Total Fitness, 15 Minutes At A Time”. She describes her workouts as short and intense. The idea is to give out the maximum effort for a short period of time (10-20 minutes).
The exercises she uses are not complicated at all, but Zuzka Light strives to come up with something new every time to prevent the body from getting used to all the exercise. At the core of her training are crunches, squats, jumps, push-ups, burpees, etc.
As far as diet, Zuzka believes in clean eating and controlling her portions using her palms as the best tool for measuring the amount of food she eats. She eats 4-5 small meals a day and drinks a lot of water. She believes that training in the gym has made her a person she is today, both physically and emotionally, and improved her quality of life considerably.
