Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas
Hi! My name is Olivia Lopez and I absolutely love all things health, fitness and mindset! My mission is to make everyone see and achieve their true potential by giving them the knowledge, confidence and support they need in order to reach their health and fitness goals! I was born in Canada and moved to the United States for 5 years in my childhood, moved back to Canada with my family and now living in California with my husband. I majored in Criminology at the University of Ottawa with plans of pursuing a career in criminal justice however I discovered my passion for health and fitness shortly after and knew in my heart I had to follow my passion. It all began with my own fitness journey! From senior year of high school all through my years in University, I had gradually gained weight to the point of not even realizing how my poor eating habits and lack of exercise had caught up to me. Before I knew it none of my clothes fit and I was up 45lbs! I knew I needed to change, so I got my very first gym membership and started working out (mostly cardio) a few times a week. I remember it being so hard in the beginning, but little by little I lost weight and educated myself on proper nutrition. Over time I went to the gym almost every day, prepared all my meals and managed to lose 55lbs on my own! I was proud of my weight loss but after moving to the United States when I married my husband I realized I wanted to feel strong and gain muscle. I began training CrossFit and I actually loved it! It taught me not to be afraid to lift heavy weights and helped me gain muscle. I loved feeling powerful and strong! I then decided to get certified as a personal trainer and got my first job as a trainer at a corporate gym in Corona where I worked for 1 and a half years. When Self Made Corona opened I immediately transferred over and have been training my clients here since January 2016. Throughout my years as a personal trainer I also discovered my passion for bodybuilding and competing. I competed in my first NPC bikini show late 2016 and loved it! In the beginning I was still learning all the ins and outs of competing and coaching myself I had to fail more than a few times to acquire the knowledge I have now. I’ve taken many first place wins since then and even the overall bikini title in a 2019 show. The last two years I have taken my competing career one step further by competing in National level competitions across the country. Although I love competing, prepping for competitions can be rather extreme. I am a big advocate for living a healthy lifestyle year round and finding balance between achieving your fitness goals and living your best life. By finding a nutrition approach that works for you and your lifestyle while applying the knowledge I provide surrounding energy balance and macronutrients we are able to produce sustainable results. I am a big believer that fitness and nutrition should add positivity and value to your life, not add stress to it! If you are ready to master your mindset and learn the tools to integrate health and fitness into your life for results that last then reach out to me. I would love to teach you how and guide you along your journey!
Hello everyone 👋🏻 ! I started taking my fitness journey serious by the age of 16, I started with a lot of body weight exercises the usual push up, sit ups, pull ups, and I would go on occasional runs here and there for cardiovascular and conditioning benefits. Although I did see a lot of results with just sticking to the basics and staying consistent every week with a routine, I couldn’t wait to start eating the right foods and taking the right supplements to improve my overall physic and health. I remind you guys that when I started my journey I was young and didn’t have a job to buy everything I needed like the supplements and right foods but I wasn’t going to let any of that stop me from accomplishing my goals 💪🏼😤 you have to start where you currently are, with what you currently have - if you really want it. As I grew older, I of course started to incorporate the food and the supplements but I felt like the most important thing that helped me keep pushing was the training in the gym because you have to consistently stick to a program and know when to switch it up so your body keeps improving and for that you need to invest a lot of time in the gym and try to figure out different ways to train your body for your specific goals. I can fairly say it has been about 10 years that I have been consistent and loyal to the gym and I’ve trained with all kinds of athletes, bodybuilders, personal trainers, and I can fairly say that I have learned a lot when it comes down to changing the human body and thats why I decided to start my career as a private coach here at self made to share all the knowledge and experience that I have acquired and help out as many people out here as possible that are hungry for a change or feel ready or motivated to start their journey. We all have a different reason why we want to get started, and I love hearing peoples stories on why they wish to start, it always inspires me to see others get inspired 🏋🏻♂️ I’ve been passing on my blessing as a fitness coach for a little over a year now and I truly enjoy it, its the best thing I have ever done to help others and give back to the community, if there’s anything that motivates me to keep going is seeing others keep challenging themselves for a better version of themselves because it throws me back to when I started and how hungry I was for that change 🔥 my training style really depends on who I am working with because everyone is different but I do like to stick to high intensity training because I believe it is the best for body shaping and losing fat. Knowing that I can not only change my body but also help YOU change yours is truly inspiring for me and it fuels me to keep going so if you feel like you are ready for a change lets get you started on your journey im looking forward in hearing your story and give you the right support and guidance you need!🤝
