My name is Ruthie. I am from California, although I have lived in quite a few places. I joined the military in 2007, about a month after graduating high school. I have lived on all over the united states, except the northern middle states, and I have deployed to Afghanistan. I have 5 siblings, and love them all!
I am married to the greatest husband. He is my biggest supporter, and the best sounding board for my ideas. I can be pretty mercurial, but he typically takes it in stride very well. I can be flighty, and when necessary, he brings me back to earth. These last couple years have been so dynamic; I know I couldn't have done it without him.
I have my personal trainer certification through International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), and I cannot wait to help others improve the quality of their lives by improving their health and fitness. In the military a special emphasis is placed on physical fitness. It is a requirement for our jobs. However, most people do not realize how truly important a properly functioning body can be. This is why I got my certification.
In an effort to make this site more functional I reorganized my blog. You can find all my most recent posts using the tabs near the top of the page. I will probably keep the 5 most recent posts on each tab up. Any older posts I will put on the Archive page. Feel free to sort through them at your leisure. You can use the search function if you are looking for something specific.
If you are here on my blog, please feel free to post questions or comments on any of the posts. I'll answer them as soon as I can :-)
Live Fit and Lift Life!
