Angela Salazar is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Council of Certified Personal Trainers (NCCPT). I have been an athlete since I was born, constantly in competition with my older brother. Anything he did, I not only did, but I was going to do it better. My athletic career began to take direction when I became a gymnast at the age of 10. I began to channel this sense of determination into my sporting career when I was 15, because college was soon approaching. I was forced to stop and truly analyze what it took to become an elite athlete. Beyond just training, I learned the importance of nutrition and emotional health.
I was asked to be on the Southeast Missouri State Gymnastics team in 2009, where I earned a full ride scholarship my junior year. I received my Bachelor degree in Nutrition and I am currently attending Lindenwood University, getting my Masters in Health and Human Performance. Fitness and performance have never been easy for me and the mental/emotional game challenges me day in and day out, still. In my collegiate athletic career, I was challenged beyond my own belief. How do we know how far we can go, if we don’t push the limits? I work every day to challenge everyone I come in contact with.
Beyond training, my family is my love. I am daddy’s little girl. And I look forward to the day when my husband and I can express the true joy that my parents show in their own marriage.
