My name is Marina Zimmerman. I am 31 years old, a mother of two teens (14 and 12) I have been married for 15 years.
It has become my goal as a personal trainer to be known as someone that understands, struggles of everyday motherhood, marriage, and just being a women. It is my commitment and desire to teach, mentor, train and guide women in a way that they can maintain a healthy and positive lifestyle.
Remember, it only starts in the gym. I make it my goal, to prepare you to be ready, for when you leave the gym. For the times you are alone, feeling discouraged about yourself, struggling with your will power. I want to help you not only as training coach, but as someone that will prepare and enable you to start implementing proper meal planning, scheduling to make time for the Gym, which most of all means a little time for yourself.
The benefits to your health, marriage, love life 🙂 will become apparent within weeks. I have been passionate about fitness all my life, but after having two children and having your body change in many ways. I realized I had to step up my game. I began weight lifting right after I had my 2nd child, I saw my body completely change and take on a different shape. This took time, yes! But believe me. With the right encouragement and mentorship this is something that you can do!
Soon after I had started working out, I had decided on trying to see how I might do in a drug free fitness competition. I then was sponsored by my friend to go to Las Vegas for my first competition. I went with the great group of girls, who have supported me and opened up the doors to the competitive fitness world for me. I took 4th place in the Fame World Tour in Las Vegas. 5 months later I competed in Fame BC Tour and took 1st place in fitness model and 3rd place in Muscle Model. I have been competing ever since and currently have found my favourite drug free federation NPAA, in which have placed 1st and got pro card in fitness model and figure category
I am a certified Personal Trainer and have been training clients for the past 6 years. I have created a core group of clients which I would and should refer to, as some of my closest friends. This job is a passion for me. I want to help women who have struggled with the same things that I have struggled with. I want to empower you to conquer the bad habits, encourage you to keep on going o10n! I want to push you to your limit, so you know what you are capable of. I want to prepare you in a way, that when you leave me, you are ready to carry yourself proudly, confidently and independently. I will train you in a way that when you are ready, you can walk into a gym and know what to do, when to do it and how many you should do it. Fitness Training is a skill that someone should learn, it is a very complex network of programs and nutrition management. This I will teach you.
This is my desire and absolute commitment to you
I am always there, a text message away, a phone call away, I will stand by you every step of this journey. This is the only way! I can promise you if it is needed, our relationship will not stop when you leave the gym.
