I'm Gabby, a certified personal trainer and coach located in Richmond, VA. I offer both in-person personal training as well as remote coaching and nutrition coaching.
I’m a competitive strongman athlete, powerlifter, personal training, coach, and lover of all things chocolate and peanut butter. I’m a big believer in consistency, dedication, and the idea that strength is for everybody.
I found lifting weights, and later on strength sports, after a lifetime of being overweight, frustrated, unconfident, and lost. I felt totally hopeless and like nothing I did would ever work. Fitness was always about being smaller and punishment, never about enjoyment or reaching my potential. It was a very frustrating place to be.
It took a series of health issues and injuries (including fracturing my foot) for me to find something that I truly enjoyed. I started lifting weights in my college gym because I had to! My bones were so brittle that my doctors were concerned that if I didn’t start lifting, my quality of life would continue to suffer. It’s not fun to be a 20 year old who is so sick they can barely go to work! Lifting quite literally saved my health and I have turned that passion into a career. It’s been an incredible journey thus far and I’m glad you’re here!
My core values:
I believe in strength in all things in the gym and in life. I value providing a safe, judgement-free environment for my clients to facilitate their growth and learning.
