PATIENCE THOMPSON

SPECIALTY //Weight Loss and Strength Training

ABOUT ME

I am a military spouse and a mommy of two boys and one girl. While pregnant with my first child I gained a considerable amount of weight. After giving birth I was left with a body I did not recognize and my self-confidence had taken a major hit. Determined to regain my confidence I joined a gym, and that is where my true love for fitness began. I was amazed at how much my energy levels, confidence, and physique improved. This motivated me to become a personal trainer. Soon after receiving my certification I started up a boot camp class in Hawaii. I enjoyed writing up workouts that were both challenging and fun for the ladies in my class. I like formulating workouts that incorporate various types of exercise. Some of my favorites are tabata, TRX, kettlebells, and strength training. I strive to give my clients workouts that are fun yet challenging.
