Questions for me to answer:

    • What made you start blogging, and how long have you been?

    I started blogging when I was in my last semester of college – my professor had his class at the time do a blog and I wasn’t in his class but I was interested in doing the project (he was my biomechanics professor – exercise science related) and since him and I grew to be close when it came to my career goals and becoming a personal trainer, he thought it would be an awesome idea for me to start blogging because he knew I could offer so much doing so. I have been doing it since Dec. 2015. 

    • What is your dream career and why? My dream career is to be a personal trainer and nutritional coach/ wellness coach. Among those two things, I also hope to become a paid fitness/health blogger for a magazine or a huge fitness company. It would be a perk to eventually own a gym and also become a motivational speaker about fitness/health. There is so much to offer in my field, I even gave thought in perhaps becoming a strength and conditioning coach since I have done that and enjoyed working with college athletes. If I can become a fitness mogul and be some kind of difference in this field- THAT WOULD BE THE ULTIMATE DREAM. ❤
    • Where is your favourite travel destination, and why? This is a good question, I haven’t traveled nearly everywhere I would like to travel, but from the places I have visited, I enjoyed going to Colorado ( I resided here for awhile) and I enjoyed Pittsburgh (I dated someone from here) – those two places were really unique and different than where I reside now. 
    • What is your number one piece of advice to new bloggers? I would tell new bloggers to blog and don’t be afraid of what others may think of your writing because there is ALWAYS someone who cares about something you write about. Trust me when I say this. 
    • If you could go anywhere right now where would it be, and why? I would go to a bigger city, perhaps warmer place. 
    • Tell us about your worst travel experience. Probably driving from Colorado to Ohio or vice versa with my mom and siblings, my mom gets too intense during long trips. LOL. 

Questions for my nominees:

  1. Do you believe in giving people “second chances”?
  2. What was your favorite childhood cartoon or show you enjoyed watching?
  3. Favorite board game?
  4. Do you prefer hamburgers or hotdogs?
  5. Do you cry at sappy movies?
  6. One thing you love about yourself?

Hope all of you nominated will enjoy my questions and answers!

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon

    1. Lynne,
      Thank you! I think many times, rewards are a great thing but I think it is best when I know a writer actually loves my content – the fact someone takes time to read them, that means the world to me 🙂

    1. LOL. It is a good thing I don’t answer my own questions, I would probably be laughing at myself. I thought the cartoon question would be super cute.. it came to me at random.
      I never reread my answers, so I will read over question #2 and see what I said.
      Thank youuuu 🙂
