My name is Sydney. I live in West Hollywood, California and I’ve been personal training here for about 9 years. I started when I was in college because I wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon. I spoke to my orthopedic surgeon and he said that when you’re 18, you’re allowed to get certified to become a trainer and you can start working with patients in a clinical setting. That clinical setting can be the gym, eventually you can get a job at a physical therapy clinic and you’ll have something to talk about in your college interviews or your med school interviews. I thought it was a great idea, so as soon as I turned 18, for my birthday my mom got me the certification course. My mom bought me my first business cards when I was 12 years old. She’s always been advocating and she’s a huge feminist like, “Work first, education second,” and I obviously wanted both.
