It was like I just discovered gold! It seemed so easy: just make some meaningful changes to my exercise and nutrition and I'll be a better writer... inside and out. Trouble is, I don't know the first thing about nutrition or fitness, so I called up my good friend and trainer, Missy, and asked for some help.
Then I got another idea. If this really works, I don't want to keep it to myself, I'll want to share it with all my writer friends (that's you!). So I invite you all to go on this adventure with me. Every Tuesday for the next three weeks, Missy will guest post with fitness tips and exercises especially designed for writers or people who are computer-bound most of the day.
Kicking off this series is a brief intro on Missy. For more about Missy, check out her blog and her Facebook page.
Missy’s passion for fitness and nutrition is contagious. With 7 years of personal training experience and a degree in Nutrition and Dietetics, she knows how to help people reach optimal physical performance through proper nutrition. She has certification in personal training from NASM, a TRX certification, is Pre-Post Natal Certified and trained in Integrated Flexibility. Missy uses a diverse selection of exercises in her approach, including: boxing, plyometrics, yoga, weights and bands.
Always challenging herself to reach optimal health and fitness, Missy competes in the bikini division of the National Physique Committee. She took 2nd place in her first competition, 4th in her second, and made it to a Nationals just a few short months later. Missy is proud to say that unlike her fellow competitors who used traditional dieting, she went against the grain and incorporated an all natural, organic, approach to her own nutrition.
But perhaps Missy's greatest strength is how she relates to people. She takes a realistic approach to fitness and nutrition, and has a genuine love for making people feel good from the inside out.
