Cindy Bertinato

MMA

                      

   

What has been your career highlight so far?

I began working in the world of MMA in the mid 90s as a Ring Girl for organizations such as Freedom Fight, W1 MMA and King Of The Cage. My work as a model has been featured in several MMA magazines and websites and currently write a monthly LifeStyle column in Ultimate MMA Magazine entitled ‘Ask The Hot Chick’. I’m now training for my first MMA fight.  I love the sport and am dedicated to promoting it in a positive manner hopefully encouraging young girls to take up Martial Arts to build self-esteem and confidence.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

I was in love with Rocky, the Karate Kid (LOL), Buddha, Albert Einstein, Andrew Dice Clay, Mother Teresa...

 

What is more difficult - modeling, being a ring girl or writing articles?

Modeling is a lot of prep work and an exhausting but fun day!  I really enjoy writing, keeps me learning.  I would say Ring Girl work is the longest day, not so much difficult as I would say demanding.

 

Who is the most unusual person you have interviewed?

There are a lot of people I respect... some popular in the media and some just extraordinary human beings in their own right.  Back in the day, I interviewed a lot of bands... that was cool.  I think the lead singer of Tool is the experience that sticks out in my head the most. 

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring model/reporter/entertainer?

I think people have to figure out what keeps them ticking and work hard to set and achieve personal goals.  Anything is possible if you can imagine it and are willing to sacrifice what it takes to make it all happen!  Talk to people in the industry, learn everything you can.

 

What has been the best fight that you have watched?

Every time a friend or teammate fights, it's such a nervous rush.  I've had the privilege of watching many incredible fighters and really can't choose because I like different fights for different reasons.  I'd like to see more women getting involved in Martial Arts.  It's an empowering sport to train, even if you are not planning to compete.  Strong is sexy!

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

I've always been good with Math & Science in school  My favorite schooling was going to College for OrthoTherapy because we practiced on each other and I love Massages!  I also graduated with Honors in Corrections!  Love school.  Wish I could always afford to study.  Right now I'm studying Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, Grappling and straight up MMA!
