My name is Christy Schwarzlose and I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana but have lived in Texas most of my adult life. I was a competitive gymnast/coach for 25 years of my life. My passion for Health & Nutrition started at age 10 when one of my coaches gave me a book to read, "EAT TO WIN. " I discovered that food was fuel! I was hooked and so my love for health and fitness was born. I attended the University of Texas Health Science Center and earned a BS in Nutrition and Dietetics. I later got certified as a personal trainer from ACE, ISSA, and PROPTA. I have been a certified trainer for over 20 years. One of my jobs was training in a neighborhood gym in Sugar Land, Texas. After going through a divorce at age 40, I took a leap of faith and bought the neighborhood gym, Greatwood Training Center. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I was teaching and motivating others to change their life to become healthy and stronger and they were motivating me to become a stronger woman both mentally and physically! I had always wanted to be, A STRONG INDEPENDENT FEARLESS WOMAN!
Several years later, I got an offer I couldn't refuse and sold the gym. I got remarried to Rodney Schwarzlose who I met through mutual friends. From day one he has lifted me up and makes me feel that their is nothing I can't accomplish. We have 5 children together who are now young adults. We currently live in New Braunfels, Texas which is where I reside now and love.
Greatwood Training Center and the support of Rodney had such a positive effect on me, that I decided to open another gym here in New Braunfels, Texas called GYMboutique. This time I decided to cater it more towards one on one training with an emphasis on nutrition. Without proper diet, people will not achieve the results they are looking for. I strongly believe the saying, "You can't out train a bad diet!" I do this by using a macro approach to dieting. ( PROTEIN, CARBS, and FAT grams) I teach individuals to learn what they are putting in their body by keeping track of their macros. Counting macros is like budgeting money. You have to know where you are spending your money. Same with food. You have to manage it and know where you are spending your energy. My main goal is to help people change their mindset towards food and dieting by giving them tools and strategies to help them develop a healthy and positive relationship with food. Eating junk food is so common today that when someone starts to eat healthy its instantly considered a negative word, dieting. Eating healthy should be the norm! A person's diet is defined as a person's, animal, or community habitually eats and puts in their bodies! It shouldn't be considered negative.
Along with proper nutrition and macros, Gymboutique focuses on empowering each other! Gyms can be intimidating! I want people to come in and feel comfortable and enjoy working out! I keep the gym small and intimate so that people feel comfortable and I can sit down with each individual and create a nutrition and workout plan catered just for them. I also do small buddy group classes with no more than 3 in a group. All programs are tailored to each individual's lifestyle and abilities. We work on building a strong core and work on strengthening our weaknesses.
I hope I get the opportunity to work with you so that you can
BE YOUR BEST YOU!
In good Health,
Christy Schwarzlose Age 49 Age 50
