About Shawn Embrey: My goal as a trainer is to provide the best care for each and everyone of my clients. I specialize in athletes and group training. If your looking to get in shape, lose or gain weight compete in a sport or just feel all around better mentally and physically I'm the trainer you have been looking for. I have a long history of fitness, from playing football in high school to being a form leader in the United States Air Force to graduating top in defensive tactics during the police academy. After some life challenges I let myself go, physically and emotionally. I found myself looking in the mirror one early morning, thinking” how did I get to 260 Lbs” disgusted with my current life and health wavering I decided to turn it all around and make my life about changing the lives of others as well as my own through proper nutrition and exercise. Since that day I have graduated from Pinnacle Career Institute with an associates degree in occupational studies with an emphasis in personal training. Am currently Certified through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a personal trainer, and i’m a nutrition wellness coach. My transformation began when I weighed 240 lbs, body fat percentage of 29% and a waist of 38″. I lost 40 lbs, 12% body fat and had a 33″ waist. In January of 2013 Life threw me some curve balls. I am currently in July of 2014: 215 lbs at 23% body fat with a waist of 39″. In that time I have learned a lot about the struggles of maintaining focus and drive that many face everyday. My current goal is to achieve 170 lbs in single digit body fat percentage with a waist of 30-32 inches by the end of 2014. I will be achieving my goals at the same time your achieving yours. Making our relationship as a coach/trainer and client perfect to achieve our goals together.
