About Our Blog

Hello! My name is Shape-Up Shawn*, WorkoutHealthy’s certified fitness expert here to provide you with informative and stimulating physical fitness articles and diet tips. My passionate and exciting style of training is transparent in my writing and has helped a variety of individuals reach their fitness goals. I am a “no non-sense” trainer who likes to push people and help them see the “BIG PICTURE” in fitness. What’s the big picture? That your journey to your ideal fitness level is a lifestyle change that requires discipline and hard work, crash diets and workouts fads are not the answer.  I believe there are three aspects to achieving your fitness goals: (1) Exercise, (2) Diet, and (3) Motivation. You have to decide to change your life and get in shape!

My decision to enter this field happened after losing a significant amount of weight at the age of 16. I spent most of my childhood being “the fat kid”, getting picked last for the kickball team on the playground and having trouble approaching the opposite sex. When I turned 16 I decided that I needed to make a change, I wanted to go to college as a new person. So after my dramatic transformation (losing 70 pounds), I went on to purse a Master’s Degree in Applied Exercise Science and Nutrition at the University of Strongman. I am certified by the USA Council of BenchPressing (USABP) as a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, and strength and conditioning specialist. In addition, I have competed in multiple armature mixed martial arts fights, and Track & Field events for the USA in the 2008 Olympics.

Whether you are looking to lose weight, gain lean muscle mass, become a bodybuilder, or just stay a fit and healthy person, this blog is for you.  This blog will provide you with the knowledge to help you achieve physical improvements through proper exercise, discover diet and nutritional goals that are suitable for your body, and build your emotional strength through motivation.
