YVETTE CODDINGTON, Owner/Head Trainer
I have always loved working out. After my kiddos arrived, I would hit my local YMCA 5 days a week. I admit, sometimes it was just to get out of the house and get in a shower by myself, but it’s where I became inspired to become a personal trainer. That was seven years ago and I’m still inspired on a daily basis.
My foray into fitness was pretty typical. I was into running and I would hit the weights now and then. I became a personal trainer and soon after became a certified spinning instructor. One early morning on a particularly long run, one of my running partners mentioned a workout program called Crossfit. So and so was doing it and she got into amazing shape after the birth of her first baby. I went home and immediately googled Crossfit.
Initially, it looked pretty hard core. A little too hard core, truth be told. I slowly started integrating the workouts into my routine and pretty soon I was hooked. And then something really amazing happened. Crossfit became my gateway to a whole new world of strength and conditioning.
I learned about weightlifting and became certified as a Sports Performance Coach with USAW. I learned about power lifting and went to learn from one of the best, Mark Rippetoe. I got really interested in nutrition and so I took seminars with Melissa and Dallas Hartwig from Whole 9 and Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution. I am currently on a journey to complete a coaching certification with James Fitzgerald of Optimum Performance Training. Each of these experiences has taught me something (well, several things!) that I can bring back to clients. I am continually learning in order to get my clients the best results.
So, what’s with the ‘garage girl’ name? You probably guessed it, but I (as well as my clients) work out in my garage. I’d love to meet you. Please come and check it out!
