Many of you may not know much about me other than I have a strong passion for fitness and nutrition. So I wanted to give you a little more details about who I am and how I've come to where I am today.
My name is Samantha Bossert. I am 28 years old currently residing in Columbus, Ohio with my amazing husband of 5 years. I went to The Ohio State University for my undergraduate and received a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. I am currently still working as an RN while also building up my online fitness business and other entrepreneurial ventures - one being my upcoming apparel line known as P'tula.
I've always been a very active woman - participating in many sports including soccer, volleyball, softball, track and basketball. The main sports in my life were basketball and track - both of which required speed, agility and power.
Although I was very athletic growing up, my problem came when I stopped playing all of these sports and I started noticing the pounds creeping up. I've always been a big eater and a big snacker and used to eat lots of unhealthy things in large quantities. Once I got to college and became a personal trainer, I started realizing how much I could manipulate the way my body looked, how I felt overall and how I had control over my own happiness.
Fitness became a huge part of me - and it's much more than just physical. In a world full of unhealthy, addictive outlets, I chose training to be my therapy and keep me sane. And I know I am not alone.
I see the aftermath of people living unhealthy lifestyles - resulting in diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, cardiac and vascular issues. Most of these can be postponed if not prevented and I want to inspire and educate people that their health is in their own hands.
What is my goal? I want to help people who want to help themselves. I want to help motivate those who need some motivation to kickstart their journey. I want to empower them to make better decisions - both in the short-term and in the long-run. To help bring a positive outlook on being healthy and strong. To be a reason - even if it's a small reason - that there are more healthy and happy people in this world.
