Gretchen Coley is the embodiment of this generations “Modern Mom”. Her title of Ms. Bikini Universe a few short years ago (in a field of women 10 years her junior) carries little weight within her tenacious brood of 3 young children.
Striving to realize a balance between harmony in the home and an un-daunting drive to make her mark on more than just the competitors stage…Gretchen leveraged her keen business savvy with her zest for health & wellness and quickly parlayed that into her own thriving Marketing Network empire.
Inspiring others to commit to their own change from within, the 90 Day Challenge has been the platform that brought about both the personal and professional sense of accomplishment that started Gretchen on this journey of empowering her thirst to achieve measured success inside and out of her home.
It was Gretchen’s declaration at nearly 50 lbs overweight in 2009 for true personal triumph and change that led her back to the books and off to the gym. Mastering both certifications in Nutrition and Training…all while juggling twins, carpools and play dates.
5 years later, she is unyielding in her commitment to better health and total body wellness. Stronger, wiser, more purpose driven than ever and she is living her dream of coaching women through the same process she experienced.
I was born in Costa Rica, raised in NJ, and am currently residing in sunny California with my husband and two pups (Ralphie & Milton)!
I graduated Quinnipiac University with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Science Studies and a double minor in Biology & Psychology. I am a certified personal trainer/aerobic instructor and have over 6 years of competition experience. I have also been an Executive/Personal Assistant to high-level executives for the past seven years. So basically, in a nutshell, I am fitness crazed Executive Assistant!
I am highly passionate about fitness! It has been a big love of mine since a young age. The first time I went to the gym was when I was 14. I stayed there with my best friend for four hours just playing around on all of the machines, testing them out and figuring out what each one did. I was fascinated! We loved just hanging out there, trying new classes and testing new moves. We weren’t there to lose weight; we just loved the atmosphere and the “feel good” vibes! Basically, nothing has changed on that front! I am fascinated and obsessed with trying new and unique fitness programs.
Last year, before a persistent back injury held me back, I started a program called “12 Months of Fitness” in which I tried a unique and new fitness program each month for 12 months. It was incredible!
When asked what I wanted to be when I grew up – I always said a “Fitness Guru” – I just wanted to know and practice everything encompassed under fitness. More importantly I wanted to, and to this day, want to share my experiences and love for fitness with others. People often say that I seem like a completely different person when I teach classes – I seem to just come alive! I cannot wait to share my passion and love for fitness with you! When you love fitness for the right reasons, it is a beautiful thing!
This year’s mantra: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” ~Henry Ford
