Belinda was always active, participating in various team pursuits and other athletic hobbies, but did not make the connection between her activities and personal training as a career until after a few detours.
Belinda graduated with a degree in hospitality management from Johnson & Wales in 2013. After a few years in the hospitality industry in and around New York City, she realized she had gained 15 lbs, wasn't able to commit the same amount of time and energy to activity as she had before her degree, and was eating in a haphazard, unhealthy way (grabbing burgers and energy drinks on the go, rather than actually planning meals, was likely a big factor in her weight gain.) Unhappy with her lifestyle and its consequences, Belinda searched for a fresh start.
Belinda left NYC and moved to Boston, where she took up indoor rock climbing. Climbing combined both physical and mental challenges, which was exactly what she needed to push her even further, and she soon found herself looking at a career in the fitness industry. Belinda enrolled in the American Academy of Personal Training, and graduated in November 2017. As soon as she graduated, Belinda began working as a trainer at various gyms and studios, and finally found her way to our team here at FT Belmont.
Belinda believes that - just as she did - we all should constantly strive to challenge ourselves both mentally and physically, with a constant goal of being the best version of ourselves we can be, and she is enthusiastic about helping others to on their path to being their own best selves.
