Read full excerpt below:
Where are you from and where are you based?
Im originally from Abidjan/ Ivory Coast and grew up and based in Germany.
Tell us about your typical day in the world of fitness/lingerie modeling?
I do Cardio-Training or go to the gym in the morning right after drinking my cup of tea or coffee. Then I check my e-mails before I go to work. On my day off I take care of important tasks at home and things that I have to do or go to my modeling jobs. I take lots of pictures and videos of my activities for my social media pages everyday. My days are usually very busy, I have to manage the fitness lifestyle, my job, my family, modeling, and my friends at the same time. This can be very tough sometimes but you get used to it and it feels great when you’re getting closer to your goals everyday while getting things done!
What’s been your most memorable job till date?
I acted a couple months ago in a German Police Series “Wache Köln Ost” for RTL. It was a minor role “a fitness girlfriend” then I recently had my first Video Shoot with “Jay Prince” a Ghanaian rapper from Germany and before that I had my first Energy Drink Campaign.
Are you currently signed to any sort of agency?
No, unfortunately not, I am freelancer but I am looking for great modeling agencies who recruit Fitness and Lingerie Models worldwide.
What brands have you worked with so far?
I worked with RTL2, RTL, Sat 1 (German TV channels), Effect Energy, Peak Nutrition GmbH, MC-Fit Studios, Allstars Nutrition GmbH, Chilyfit.de and many more…
Tell us all about your fitness regime.
I work out four times a week. I run 1-2 times a week 35-45 min or 60 min in the wood, at the park or on a treadmill. I eat less sugar, less greasy fast food and I drink less alcohol. Most of the time I stick to a healthy and clean diet during the week and eat my favorite meals or what I’m craving for during the weekends.
What would you say has been the hardest part of keeping a fit body all year round?
It would be to stay aways from sweets because I love eating Cookies and Crownies and Gummi Bears 🙂 and also sticking to my workout scheduel even when I’m going through hard times in life.
In 3 words, describe your sense of style…
Simple, classy and elegent.
On a typical day would you prefer to wear Sneakers or heels?
To be honest, I would wear heels 90% of the time if I had the chance to! I love wearing heels! LOL
Would you say you’re interested in fashion or you indifferent?
I used to see things very practical because of fitness. I usally only wanted to wear casual outfits but fashion has so much more to offer. I really am interested in fashion because to me having a great sence of style is very important and means a lot. It’s a great way to define the way we are in a decent, silent way plus its really fun too. 🙂
What s that one fashion accessory that you cannot leave the house without?
It would be my earrings, high heels and my bag. 🙂
Apart from the fitness lifestyle, what other things are you interested in ?
I love to travel and to learn knew things and differrent cultures. I like to read, meditate, do yoga, singing, dancing and watch movies.
Do you have a personal website?
It will be launched soon: www.jocelyneappia.com
What are your future plans in the world of fitness modeling?
It will be becoming a Pro Athlete in the world of fitness and get more acting and TV jobs worldwide specially in Africa and becoming a Covermodel for several Magazines.
