Here is a little about me. My name is Brenda Terry I am 54 years old. I have not always been one to work out or even go to a gym, in fact, I did not start working out till I was 35!
Being a horse lover, I kept busy and pretty fit training, showing, and racing horses.

There was a time in my life I did gain weight, I went from a size 4 to size 12! I did not really notice how much bigger I was until I saw a photo of myself. I knew I better change the way I ate and get more exercise. So I did and the weight came off. I watched my portions and made better choices in the food I was eating.

My fitness journey began in the year 2000, I had started reading fitness magazines and found a challenge that I thought would be fun to try. So I joined a gym and started the 3-month challenge. I really enjoyed the workout and learning about nutrition, and exercise.

Excited about my new lifestyle, I knew I needed some guidance. So I found a trainer, he had competed in Bodybuilding shows, and had also Judged shows, so I knew he had some real knowledge. He taught me about nutrition, and supplements, as well as new exercise techniques.
After working out at the gym for 2 months I had made some obvious improvements and people at the gym were noticing! I began getting comments on how great I looked and questions like "how did you do it?". I really enjoyed answering their questions and helping a few of them with their form. The members called me their Mascot, which really made me feel good. :)

That was when I started thinking about becoming a trainer. I thoroughly enjoyed helping people with their workouts and sharing what I knew about nutrition.

2004 Competed in my first figure competition placing 2nd. Had my picture published in a book called Hormonally Intelligent Exercise by Rb Faigin

2007 Placed top 3 in National Hot Bod contest! Was Featured Athlete of the month for April on DR. Squats web- site! (Dr. Richard Hatfield who is the Co-Founder and President of ISSA.)
That year I also started working part-time as a trainer in a studio

2008 I was hired as a full-time Personal Trainer for I Idaho Athletic Club, where I worked till 2016.
They sold the gym to Crunch, I worked for Crunch Fitness for one year, that was when I decided it was time for me to start my own business. :)
I have had the pleasure of working with some great people. Trained tennis players, and golfers for fitness. Their game improved a lot. 3 Championship titles won!
Also, trained girls to compete in Figure and Bikini shows with 90% winning their first show and taking overall Champion. One of my clients became a pro bikini competitor!
Many clients losing any were from 15lbs to over 100lbs!
