Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading source="post_title" font_container="tag:h1|font_size:18|text_align:center" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]Hi! My name is Grace. I started my fitness journey in 2014 not having a clue what I was doing but I had the desire to change. I started at 90 lbs and always struggled to gain weight and build some glutes. After years of trial and error, I'm now 35 lbs up and couldn't be happier. Fitness has changed my life not just physically but mentally as well. Nothing can replace the satisfaction of physically and mentally pushing yourself to do something challenging. Because of my journey I strive to share my knowledge and experience with people who also have that same desire to change but struggle knowing what to do. I always tell my clients it's not going to be easy but it's going to be worth it. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. So drink you're f*cking water.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
    [vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading source="post_title" font_container="tag:h1|font_size:18|text_align:center" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]Working out was my happy place before I decided to start my career in the fitness industry. In 2011 I started personal training to help others make it theirs too. After working with so many different people at different phases in their lives, it really drove home the fact that healthy living has a lot of competition. Often the thing we can’t seem to find is balance. I really wanted to move beyond just a workout and diet plan and use my personal experience to show how to live healthy and make sustainable changes to accomplish goals. Fitness is for life as long as you keep moving. I hope to keep doing so and help as many people as I can along the way. In 2015, I cofounded an event, Climb for a Cure, that helped raise funds for stage iv metastatic breast cancer. This event later turned into a nonprofit, Make Good Moves. From 2015-2021 we were able to raise $100,000 and donate that towards research, awareness for stage iv MBC and provide assistance for patients and their families. In 2019 I helped open up Self Made West Covina and in 2021 I took over partial ownership of Self Made Chino Hills in 2021. Within those two locations I help run a team of close to 100 trainers. I mentor them to step out of the big box gyms and become successful entrepreneurs. In 2022, I became a mom and attribute my healthy pregnancy and recovery to the lifestyle I have created since 2011. As an entrepreneur my titles have changed but my mission has not, helping others through health and fitness. I currently still work with a limited personal training clientele and co-host my own podcast and social events through, The Mixtape Talks Podcast.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_btn title="CHECK OUT MY INSTAGRAM" color="danger" size="lg" align="center" i_icon_fontawesome="fab fa-instagram" button_block="true" add_icon="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Finstagram.com%2Fmarissa_almendarez%3Figshid%3DYjNmNGQ3MDY%3D"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
