Background

My name is Sam Bangs. Yes, that's my real name.

I'm an ACE certified personal trainer, USATF Level I running coach, an actor, and a mom.

I stumbled into personal training as a flexible day job for my acting pursuits, and fell in love with helping others achieve their fitness goals. I struggled with body issues for most of my childhood and nearly all of my adult life, but in showing my client's their inner strength, I was able to find my own.

During my pregnancy and postpartum period, I was frustrated with the lack of program variety, and fitness expertise available to new and expecting mothers -- especially for the cost.

After working with pregnant women and new moms, and my own fit pregnancy journey, I knew I wanted to offer the best available programming to other women in the most convenient and affordable way possible.

In addition to the information and experience I've gained thus far, I'm also on track to receive my Fit For Birth certification in the coming months.
