About Me

Hi! I'm Lindsay. Welcome to my blog!

I first started this blog as an online journal/diary to keep track of my life and vent my thoughts. Over time, it gradually evolved into more of a fitness blog, although that was never my intention. Health and fitness is such a huge part of my life that it just ended up that way!

I really don't consider this a "fitness blog", as I also frequently share photos and thoughts about my life, inspirational quotes, bible verses and just random things every now and then, and I will continue to do so!

This blog is an outlet for me, a place to vent my thoughts and feelings, and to share my love for health and fitness, especially lifting! So if you want a blog that's always about fitness and healthy recipes and "booty shaping" workouts-this is not the place for you! ;)

Other facts about me: I'm 32 years old. I have a degree in Exercise Science and currently work as a personal trainer. I have been very happily married for 11 years to the most amazing man! He is an answered prayer and my very best friend! :)
I don't plan on having kids anytime soon, but we treat our 130 lb white German Shepherd, Asher, like a child. He's our baby!

Here is some background on how my love for fitness began:

I started weight training when I was around 13 years old. My dad wanted me to strengthen my arm because I was a softball pitcher, so he showed me some exercises to do with my mom's set of little 3lb pink dumbbells. And I have been hooked ever since! I instantly fell in love with lifting weights.

As I got stronger, my dad gave me heavier dumbbells to use. I would go through a full body routine with those weights in my bedroom all through middle school and high school. After a while of doing this, I started seeing the physical changes. I was growing some muscle on my skinny body, and I loved it! I remember being so proud of my little biceps!

Now, 15 years later, I am just as in love with lifting weights as ever. Well, that's not really true-I love it even MORE.  My love for fitness led me to get a degree in exercise science from the University of Louisville, and I have been a personal trainer for almost 5 years now. Health and fitness is truly my passion.

My ultimate goal is to show women that they can lift heavy weights without the fear of getting "huge" or looking like a man. It's time for that myth to go away already!Strength training is one of the BEST things you can do for youself as a woman. Not only for health reasons(and there are SO many), but also for the confidence it gives and the way it transforms your body. Nothing is better than being strong, feeling good, and having confidence. It's time to ditch the 5lb barbie weights! ;)

  4. Hi Lindsay,
    My name is Heather and I'm a member at your husband's gym and noticed you training one day while I was working out. Seeing what you've accomplished and continue to do while training has helped me to push myself and keep going towards my health, mental and spiritual goals - as we all know, we all have to take care of ourselves! I also appreciate how welcoming your husband was and his willingness to work with me when I first joined. Just thought I would drop a line and say 'thanks' :)
