Welcome! My name is Tina Reale – a wife, mother, runner, personal trainer, sweets lover, recovered binge eater, woman of faith, and fitness aficionado.
Years ago, I fell in love with fitness. I grew up participating in competitive cheerleading, yet fell out of regular activity the first couple of years in college. My junior year, I begrudgingly signed up for an aerobics and weights class for a required graduation credit. Over the course of those three months, fitness became a part of me. As they say, the rest is history.
I dove headfirst into this newfound passion – reading a variety of texts and gaining as much knowledge as I could on nutrition, diet, exercises, workout programs, etc. I created numerous workout plans for myself and friends. Time at the gym became one of my greatest pleasures. Working towards fitness goals drove me forward and gave me such fulfillment.
Fitness helped me through some very dark periods in my life, such as when I struggled with binge eating disorder. My workouts empowered me.
A year after my first pregnancy, I trained myself for a fitness competition.
After that competition, I had my son, then rededicated myself to getting back in pre-pregnancy shape. Within six months, I reached my goal weight and had picked up running. I trained for races – completing a 5K, then 10K, then half marathon, and finally a full marathon.
These days, I’m focusing on fitness in a way that fulfills all aspects of my life. I currently focus my fitness with regular cross training, strength, and yoga workouts. In February of 2014, I will also begin a 200 hour yoga teacher training course.
Through my entire fitness journey, I have increased a desire to share the same love for fitness and what it can do for the whole self with others. Which leads me to now. My chance to do just that. To give back some of the life fitness has given me. To allow you to experience that same rejuvenation. To go alongside you as we journey to our own personal goals – to be your best on the inside and out. Cheers!
