Not Your Average Personal Trainer
Hi, I’m Gabi Mazar! You may think fitness and eating healthy come easily to me or that I don’t have to try to stay in shape. That couldn’t be farther from the truth!
Having Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis makes staying in shape a struggle for me, just like anyone else with an autoimmune disease or an inflammatory condition. Flare-ups mean weight gain, fatigue, low energy, brain fog, and more. I have my ups and downs, I like pizza, and I love wine, and I DON’T always love to work out! I will tell you those around me motivate me to stay in shape.
I have never been a desk-job person. Being on my feet, around people, and being active is a part of who I am. After being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, my passion for health and fitness greatly increased. I know there are people out there that suffer too (maybe not necessarily with my illness) who truly need help and I have—and will continue to be—the one helping. When you have an autoimmune disease and/or inflammatory condition, working out and diet have to be completely different from those who do not share our struggles. I have first-hand experience being the best autoimmune personal trainer and travel guide.
Why am I Qualified to be Your Coach?
An Arizona State University graduate, I received my Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Small Business and Exercise & Wellness. I was a business major for three years before switching my major on the chance that fitness was my future.
Luckily, I LOVED IT! I didn’t just get a PT certification in some 3-hour course; I am NASM certified and Stretch to Win FST certified. I also interned for a year with a mentor and friend I greatly respect.
After college, I got a job at a gym. I realized that was not for me as I don’t want to pressure you to buy a membership or hassle you to pay a fortune for training that you will never use. I want you to want it. You want to fit into your skinny jeans or that bikini you’re too afraid to put on or be able to run and play with your children. I get it.
I could have done many other things and could do a lot of other jobs with my degree, but I choose to work in an inconsistent field with tons of competition where money isn’t always easy.
I stay in this job because I love it. I love what I do, and how I help people change their lives!
It is the most amazing thing to make a difference! The truth is that it is as much for me as it is for those around me.
How can you stay fit while on vacation? Keep moving as you go!
It is not about being perfect, because nobody is. It’s about consistency and staying on a program with someone who keeps you coming back and seeing results. You can be healthy while traveling. You just decide you are ready for a fitcation to hang with like-minded people and see the results you want. Make the decision to travel fit!
Now, we’re booking more trips to Costa Rica, New Zealand, Mexico, and even California. Stay tuned!
Where the adventure lives up to the anticipation.
