My name is Shondelle, I am 49 years old and the mother of two teenagers. I've spent my entire adult career serving as a transformation coach in the Fitness Industry. I earned my bachelors degree from Columbia University in 1996 and my Masters in Sports Medicine from The University of Miami in 2006. After spending a few years working in global gyms, I new that would not be my path as I was more concerned with client results than monthly training quotas.
In 2006, I realized my dream and opened a small group training facility, Synergize Fitness and Performance. I successfully operated this gym for 17 years and transformed thousands of lives during that time. In Sept 2023 I decided to close my doors so I could reach more people, specifically targeting the demographic of middle aged woman, who are most neglected in the fitness industry and perhaps the most overwhelmed and confused due to the hormonal shifts during this time of life; what 'worked' before doesn't seem to 'work' the same once we hit 40.
In my 25 year career I've earned certifications from all of the credible organizations: ACE, ACSM, NASM, NCSF ,NSCA and CrossFit L-3. Today I maintain my NSCA strength and conditioning certification and I've also recently earned a certification as a Menopause Specialist, a Transformation Life Coach and a Psychology of Eating Coach. I also hold a L-1 Nutrition coach status with Preceision Nutrition.
After closing my gym, I launched an 8-week virtual transformation program called The F.A.S.T Transformation System. FAST stands for Fasting, Accountability, Self-Care and Training. The program has recently launched but I am getting exceptional results and testimonials with the woman who are participating. My goal is to spread this knowledge and transform the bodies and lives of women 40 and beyond who are frustrated, confused and not feeling confident in their bodies.
