Nadia Szymanowicz, Coach
Meet Coach Nadia Szymanowicz (pronounced sha-mano-vich since you are probably looking at your phone sideways to figure that one out). Ever since Nadia began taking her health and fitness seriously in 2014, she has been hooked on and has discovered a burning passion for bettering herself, challenging herself, breaking through barriers, and discovering what is beyond her perceived limits to discover what she truly is capable of.
Growing up with an athletic background where Nadia participated in many sports, she never made her way into a gym- but she was always competitive, a leader amongst her peers, a team player, and goal-oriented. When she did discover the gym, it became her most reliable outlet. This precious space was somewhere she could pour her entire being into, for herself, for her own good and wellbeing. Seeing herself transform, learning about form and different exercise variations, how they targeted certain muscle groups, educating herself on nutrition, and starting to keep track of her progress had her glued on the idea of getting better every single day. Nadia wanted to do better in all areas of her fitness efforts- hitting her macros each day, sticking with her gym routine, learning new things… and eventually, she was able to integrate these positive habits with her daily life-improving her entire quality of life as a whole. Currently, as a coach she is performing training group exercises, monthly seminars in her local community to help bring more awareness and importance to the local fitness community.
In 2017, Nadia competed in her first NPC show where she won first place in Novice, won the Novice overall, and second in Open. She caught the bug, as some say, and have since done 4 shows afterward. Her most recent being NPC Jr. USA’s in Charleston, South Carolina, where at her first national show, she won first place in her class. At this show, she was hoping for a first callout- but to have won her class really opened up her eyes and allowed shifting of gears within her to pursue the next level. Currently, Nadia is aiming at earning her IFBB professional status- and yes, Universe, she is putting it out there- with the goal to step on the Olympia stage.
Nadia’s intention is to help you realize that the only limit is the one you set yourself. That you can push further, go beyond what you thought possible, and unlock a new version of yourself that will be so rewarding to meet. The process in which this occurs is where the real fun happens- do not only get excited over the end result. The magic happens in the middle. In this journey is where you level up, build your character, develop strength, willpower, adaptability, discipline, honesty, and integrity within yourself. Nadia believes that through intention, applied effort, and action- anything is possible. There is no better time than now- stop waiting on living your best life.
