Hello Community!

Hi all, I'm new to this community, so I figured i'd start by doing whats asked of the community first.....INTRO...

Name:  Jessica

Age:  26

Current workout (indicate if you are on the Body for Life program, Weight Watchers, Dr. Phil's Fitness Challenge, powerlifting routine, Southbeach Diet etc):  My boyfriend and I own a martial arts school and although I am not a practitioner of the martial arts, I've become a fitness buff over the years.  My workouts mainly consisted of kickboxing, yoga, and light conditioning.  My schedule has changed since then, I am no longer able to train at the gym or dojang and have to make adjustments to my workout by working out at home....which to me, is the hardest thing ever!!!  I'm having a hard time getting motivated to do a super intense workout when I'm at home having to take care of my 3yo son along with other house duties after a full day of work.  Now, my workout routine mainly consists of 4 various types of squats, torso twists, knee drills and light arm exercises.  My main focus right now is my diet, which i've done a killer job with and have lost more weight that i could have ever imagined in a short amount of time.

Current workout goal(s):  My main workout goal has been met, which was to drop my body fat percentage to a healthy range, which is now at 16%.  I'm 5'7", 141lbs, BMI 22, BFP 16%.  My next goal is to drop another 6lbs, and gain lean muscle and gain complete control of my body, which to me includes, strength, stamina, flexibility and agility.  I've never had this in my life, and I'm striving to get there, one day at a time.  Another goal for me is to get my Personal Trainer Certification so that I can quit my current job (which has nothing whatsoever to do with fitness) and dedicate myself full time to our martial arts school and to help people reach their personal fitness goals.
Which leads me to my reason for joining this community.  Are there any personal trainers out there?  Where did you get your certification?  I've been doing alot of research on my own, but I want to make sure I get a solid certification and not a $15 cracker jack box cert.

Interests:  I enjoy pretty much anything...., fashion design, shoes, fitness, kickboxing, yoga, belly dancing (did that for about 4 years), mixed martial arts, entrepreneurship, good conversation, good beer, good (healthy) food...etc.


Ok, cool. I'll add you to mine also. I must warn you though, I RARELY update my personal journal, i'm more into lj for the communities.

Is this community active, or more on the dead side?

It was pretty cool for a few years, but now you can kinda hear the crickets chirp. fitbody_fitmind gets a bit more traffic. Some others get a bit TOO much for my taste.
