Who is Linda Durbesson? Wiki Bio
Linda Durbesson was born in Carpentras, France, on 20 December 1979, so her zodiac sign is Sagittarius and she holds French nationality. She is a social media personality, fitness trainer, and an entrepreneur, who gained recognition after she began appearing on cover pages of several fitness-related magazines.
Early life and education
Linda was raised as an only child in the southern French commune Carpentras, by her father who is a martial artist, and her mother who is a nurse.
Linda became interested in sports at a very early age, and by the time she was five, she was already learning how to dance modern jazz and ballet, and was taking martial arts classes. She began riding her mountain bike at the age of seven, and started playing tennis and soccer.
She attended a local high school, where she tried a variety of sports and activities such as acting and cross-country running, and was interested in geography, which increased her wish to travel. After matriculation, she enrolled at college, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in 2001.
Career as a fitness model
Linda worked several jobs for over five years before she started working out at a local gym in 2003. She was not satisfied with her looks and wanted to lose weight, however, she would later fall in love with working out, and start to spend more time at the gym. In 2010, she decided to move to Florida, USA so that she could be with her boyfriend, and they started living together, however, the two broke up not long afterwards.
So Linda was left alone in Florida, where she had no friends nor family, poor English, and had to fight depression and anxiety, but found comfort in exercising which made her feel more at home.
She decided to enroll at a college, and eventually obtained her Master’s degree in personal training in 2014, and during the following two years she became a fitness model, appearing on the cover pages of several magazines, while she also started working as a personal trainer.
Linda is also a social media personality having gathered well over a million followers to her Instagram account, onto which she’s uploaded more than 1,000 pictures. She has launched her own fitness app called LDFITapp, and is using her social media fame to promote it.
She is also a YouTuber, having launched her YouTube channel on 7 March 2008 which is currently subscribed to by over 55,000 people and counts more than 5.3 million views of all her videos combined. Two of her most popular videos are “Linda Durbesson – Try This And Get A Tone Bubble Butt” which has been seen nearly 900,000 times since 5 November 2016, and “Trying New Things! Workout Everywhere #1 – LDFIT” which has been viewed over 860,000 times since 19 September 2016.
Linda’s workout routine and diet plan
Linda trains five to six times per week, working on her legs two or three times, and three times on her upper body.
She also enjoys doing cardio, and her weekly workout routine looks as following: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are reserved for legs while Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays are for her upper body and cardio – Linda rests on Sundays.
Talking about her diet, she eats five times a day and is mostly focused on providing her body with enough proteins, carbohydrate, fruits and vegetables. She is very pedantic when it comes to her diet and has only one ‘cheat meal’ per week, mostly choosing sweets or pizza for it.
She usually has egg whites and oatmeal for breakfast, later followed by turkey breast and spinach. Her third meal includes bison, sweet potato and asparagus, followed by egg whites, one whole egg, and some broccoli. Her fifth and final meal of the day includes the tilapia fish and green beans.
Love life and relationships
Linda has been in several relationships, but has kept the details of them hidden from the media’s curiosity. She met her first boyfriend on the internet and the two chatted for over two years before the man invited Linda to come and live with him in America.

Im not denying the virus. In Miami it’s not an order to quarantine. Parks, beaches and all public areas are closed just like stores like everything else in your country. . . For my case I have been doing the quarantine for over a month already and allowing myself to go for a walk, or a bike ride time to time – to refresh my mind. . Cause being 24/7 home is hard and will drive anyone crazy. I got it. I don’t even know how golden is handling this quarantine since 1 year 1/2 now. Not going outside like he had been doing the entire day since 2 years . . However I am feeling normal and healthy. Thanks God. And thanks to everyone to wish me well and worry always 💗. I strictly stay home by myself, see no ones in person. Beside to go for grocery where I wear a N95 mask. Clean everything and all. 🙌 Then, I go straight back home. . I have the chance to have a nice balcony, with the sun all day ☀️ if I want to I could go downstairs to the bay, and a green area that anyone can walk by, keeping the social distancing of course. . . President Trump announces some US states will start to reopening and beaches as well, in north Florida though like Jacksonville are doing hours.. not sure about that. ⠀ I would like on this Sunday your opinion, and what you’re doing or can do where you live and what your thoughts are in general about all this. . Please don’t hold back because even if you’re opinion is perhaps incomplete or unpopular, it’s worthy and it starts discussions. And discussions heal the world. 💗 ⠀ Some insights or thoughts I or others might share may not be completely accurate, but I’m going to open up for the freedom of speech always. ⠀ If you read an opinion below that you don’t agree with, please don’t attack it. If you’d like to engage, come from a place of love and the willingness to hear another point of view. We’re all just doing our best at this time to try to make sense of it all, and again, freedom of speech isn’t reserved for some 🤗 ⠀ Im choosing to engage in this rather look dumb that one day say, “I wish I used my platform for something important when I still could.” If you’re uncomfortable to say something just drop your favorite “feel better” emoji
It was a big decision for her to leave everything behind, however, she went, but the two didn’t work out – she believed that he was cheating on her, and eventually left for another girl. She spent years single after that, and then found a boyfriend in 2016, but left him after he failed to be there for her, as she explained in one of her Twitter posts.
There are rumors circulating the internet that Linda is currently in a relationship with a bodybuilder whom she met at her gym, and that the two have been going out for over a year now, but Linda hasn’t addressed the rumors.
Hobbies and other interests
Linda’s main ‘hobby’ is exercising, and she enjoys working out using machines, but is also keen on spending her time outdoors and exercising in the woods, as well as hiking up the hills and mountains.
