Prairieville, LA 70769
I became involved with weight training about 10 years ago. Never having been involved with sports as a child, I was not involved in fitness growing up. In 2001, my husband introduced me to weight training and I immediately fell in love with the benefits of weight training and exercising. It would be another two years before I realized the full potential of cardio, strength training, AND eating well.
After working as a Realtor for a few years, I walked into a local gym and told the director that I was ready for a career change. I had no certifications, no experience, and little direction, but I was willing to learn. The director of the gym took me in and began working with me. I learned a great deal as I shadowed the personal trainers at the gym, who had over 40 years of experience combined; teaching group exercise classes, training clients in one-on-one and semi-private sessions, and directing boot camps.
After working for Fitness in Motion for over three years, I decided that it was time to move on. I earned my personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and began picking up clients for personal training sessions and semi-private sessions. It was at this time that I decided it was time to open a personal training studio. I envisioned a gym dedicated solely to personal training, and Action Fitness was born!
