I'm a certified strength and conditioning specialist, clinical exercise physiologist, personal trainer, group exercise instructor, and sports nutritionist. I also teach exercise certification and continuing education workshops. I completed my bachelors program for exercise physiology with a minor in nutrition in 2012. I'm currently in the Masters in Exercise Science program at University of South Florida. My thesis will be an evaluation of the exercise order (cardio first or weights first) that will elicit the most body fat loss. After that I plan on doing my PhD in so that I can do research on the effects of various types of exercise on different diseases, specifically estrogen based cancers and dementia.
Why I want to get in shape
It's all about health. With a lot of family history of health issues, I'm determined to be healthy so that I can live a long, happy life without the limitations and disabilities that my family have suffered.
FYI: If you're looking for the workout cards I use to have in my photos here, you can find them all and some exercise videos I've made on my Facebook Fan Page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Training-With-Tonya/231103626354 . Sorry, but there was only room on here for 18 photos and I have more workout cards made then that, so I have them where I can put a lot more for people to try. Enjoy!
- Love the way my muscles look when I'm lifting weights regularly.
- Lost too many loved ones to preventable diseases because they didn't workout.
- It's funny to watch the looks on the faces of the guys in the gym...
- ...when I lift more then they do! (Insert Evil Laugh Here) ;-D
