Footsteps to personal training.
I could not go back to re-trying center programs again. I saw changes in my body when I worked with a personal trainer using weights and cardio conditioning. I did look different and my body was reshaping, regardless of what the scale said. I had to continue down this path of weights and cardio along with proper eating. Over time, I worked with several trainers and had an ‘aha’ moment. I CAN DO THIS! I can train ladies with weights and debunk the myth that women who lift weights look masculine and get big muscles.
My regimen and philosophy of fitness broadened. I knew I could learn, apply and share what I was doing. “Ladies gotta hear about this”. I became a personal trainer, aerobics instructor, step-n-sculpt and body tone ‘guru’ at Bally’s Total Fitness. I worked at many locations like downtown and hotel gyms. I even worked at a boxer’s gym (I can tell you stories on that one), as well having in-home clients.
I received extensive training in Mat Pilates, Step-n-Sculpt, Body Tone, and Aerobics. I got certified through AFAA, AAAI/ISMA, Mat Science for Pilates and WITS (World Instructors Training School). Because I walked my talk, I was able to get down to 128lbs and 11% body fat. I helped many ladies reshape and lose weight as well. I did it and would never lose it again.
