Sylvia’s Health and Fitness Perspective
In 2004, I was awarded Warhawk and Top Physical Readiness Trainee in the US Air Force. Now I’m stronger than the Sylvia of 2004. Sure, I was younger, but I lacked experience and knowledge in training and nutrition. Since 2005, I have worked as a Certified Personal Trainer at Gold’s Gym, Spectrum, Blast, several private gyms, and now online. I don’t believe in fads or trend, only what works for long-term health and fitness. Now, I have over seventeen years of health & fitness experience. In that time, I’ve never been without a six pack, high energy, and my favorite: muscle.
I have extensive knowledge and experience with creating nutrition and training programs. My areas of expertise are natural bodybuilding and calisthenic strength. For me, fitness is more about how I look than how I feel. More importantly, I believe in setting a positive example for my son. I want him to know that adulthood does not equate being out of shape, as so many adults are these days. With his whole life ahead of him, I want my son to look forward to being comfortable in his skin and having the energy and discipline to reach any goal. If you’re a parent, be fit for your kids. Set a healthy lifestyle example as a strong, disciplined adult.
