  • Lindsey

    Personal Trainer, LAF Bootcamp Coach

    My name is Lindsey Martinez, I am from Colfax, California, and I have been with Life Altering Fitness, Inc. for almost six months now. I currently hold a certification in Personal Training through the American Council on Exercise, and a First Aid/CPR/AED certification through the Red Cross. I am presently a senior in a bachelor’s program at American Public University where I am also a member of the school’s honors society. At the end of the year 2017 I will have earned a BS in Sports, Health, and Exercise Sciences. I have been on my own fitness journey for ten years now, starting with a walking regime that grew into distance running and finally turned into a love for lifting. My personal fitness goal is all about being healthy and warding off detrimental health issues while building and maintaining strength and confidence. As I trainer, I hope to inspire people to do the same by educating, guiding, and leading by example. I ultimately hope to help people prevent and treat diseases through exercise, but I am often heard telling people that I just want to spread health and wellness across the land as I truly feel as if it is my purpose.
