Tonya SCHMIDT - Personal Trainer



I had always struggled with my weight as a child. In high school, I was bullied for my weight, by people I thought were my friends. I became insecure and began trying one different "fad" weight loss program after another with no success.

In January 2012 I committed myself to a program of healthy eating and exercise and by April I had lost fifteen pounds and even more in inches. I began taking in more walking during the day and the gym in the evening. Soon after I incorporated weight training into my regular program and my weight began to creep back up again. Confused and frustrated, I consulted with a Personal Trainer and Nutritionist. I learned a lot, including the fact that I am not doing anything wrong… I was gaining muscle!

I started to look at the scale differently. I stopped letting the scale define me or my success. I felt great! I felt powerful and stronger than ever and I discovered my passion for training. I wanted to learn as much as I could, so in September 2015, I registered for the Personal Training Program and I became fully certified in September 2016. Originally I did this for myself, until I realized how much I wanted to help other people, with the same frustrations and experiences that were a part of my journey. I want to help people feel strong and powerful and that means more to me than anything.

My fitness journey began at high school.

I was a heavier boy back then, with not a lot of self-confidence or self-worth. 

As such, any attention that was paid to me I viewed as positive, regardless of the type it was.

Over summer break, I started going to the gym, on the urging of my parents.

At first, I would shy away from using weights, sticking to the machines. But gradually, through support from the staff, the people working out, and my family, I started lifting weights.

My self-confidence and self-worth started to rise as I realized that I found something I enjoyed doing, and I excelled at it.

Fast forward to the spring of 2018 and, once again at the encouragement of my family, I started my Personal Training certification, which I finished in the Fall of 2018.

After this, I jumped right into preparing for my first classic physique competition, and competed in July of 2019 at the T-Zone Natural Championships.

In addition to the above education, I have over 10 years of education in the fields of marketing, business and economics.

I consider myself lucky that I've spent all my working life in the customer-service sector. This has allowed me to build relationships and connect with people of ages.

The experiences I've gained through these interactions have definitely been instrumental in making me the man I am today.

Fast forward to today and my passion for the gym and exercise hasn't diminished. The physical, mental, and emotional benefits that physical exercise provides are too numerous to list. I firmly believe that physical exercise can improve anyone’s life, and I look forward to sharing this experience with you.
