A Passion for Empowerment Through Fitness and Nutrition

From an early age, I always harbored a deep desire to help people, but the path to realizing this aspiration wasn't always clear. It wasn't until I was 15 that my true calling began to take shape, sparked by a profound love for training and the intricate science of nutrition.

Discovering Empowerment Through Training and Nutrition

• My journey into the world of fitness and health began when strength training and nutritional knowledge empowered me to feel stronger and more confident. This personal transformation ignited a desire to help others experience the same sense of empowerment.

• By my senior year of high school, I had fully embraced the bodybuilding lifestyle, even competing in my first show. While others spent their nights out, I found my passion in the discipline and dedication of the gym.

The Evolution of a Fitness Professional

• My commitment to bodybuilding only grew stronger over the years. With over 11 competitions under my belt and securing an overall championship title under the guidance of Justin Mihaly, I realized the profound impact this sport has had on my life.

• In 2016, I took a significant step in my career by becoming an ISSA certified personal trainer. This allowed me to start offering online coaching and working with in-person clients, even as I pursued my undergraduate studies.

Academic Achievements and Professional Growth

• I earned my B.S. in Nutritional Sciences in 2019, but my thirst for knowledge and the desire to make a greater impact on my clients propelled me further. I pursued additional schooling to become a registered dietitian, culminating in graduating from my Master’s program and a dietetic internship with a focus on eating disorders in May 2023.

A Vision for Holistic Health and Wellness

A Journey of Resilience and Transformation

My story is one of resilience, transformation, and the relentless pursuit of self-belief. Raised by a single mother of four, a first-generation immigrant with no high school diploma, I learned invaluable life lessons and values. The most significant of these, ingrained in me from a young age, was hard work – a value that would shape my entire journey.

The Early Years: Discovering Strength in Training

• A decade ago, as a 150 lbs, 5’7” soccer player, I first stepped into the gym. Feeling invisible in my surroundings, training became my sanctuary. It was where I felt powerful, confident, and victorious.

• Despite my physical gains, I realized that improving the body without nurturing the mind was an incomplete victory. My academic journey faltered, leading to getting kicked out of college. Without a clear purpose, I lost my way.

The Downward Spiral: A Period of Struggle

• The years that followed were marked by failures, a flawed moral compass, and depression. Even as the gym remained my meditation, my growth stalled, echoing the adage, "If you’re not growing, you’re dying."

The Turning Point: Summer Shredding Classic and Grow or Die

• My life took a pivotal turn when I decided to compete in the Summer Shredding Classic. Concurrently, discovering Justin Mihaly and the Grow or Die podcast was a watershed moment, changing not just my physique but my entire life.

• I transformed from a life marred by binge drinking, drugs, and aimlessness, to becoming an assistant coach on Together More – the very team that ignited hope in me.

A Series of Conscious Choices: Believing in Myself

• My journey over these years was a testament to the power of self-belief.

- Hiring Justin as a coach.

- Relocating 1,200 miles to Austin.

- Leaving a 15-year stint in the restaurant industry for coaching.

- Joining the high-achieving Team Mihaly.

- Inviting others in 2024 to join me on this transformative ride.

Living Proof: Changing Lives, Not Just Physiques

• My life is a living testament to the adage from Proverbs 23:7, "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." This journey isn't just about physical change; it's about life-altering transformation.

• As someone who has walked through the darkest valleys and emerged stronger, my mission is to guide others to believe in themselves and witness their own incredible transformations.

Dominique Nunez

A Journey of Transformation and Empowerment

Born and raised as a Jersey girl, I found my new home in Texas, carrying with me a rich background in the performing arts. My early years were filled with ballet, piano, and singing, an experience deeply ingrained in my soul. Perhaps the discipline of my strict Russian ballet teachers or the inspiring sight of my mother earning her master's degree in her 50s while juggling work and family life planted the seeds of self-improvement in me. That relentless drive for betterment has been a constant flame in my life, growing more intense with each passing year.

From Tech Sales to Strength Training

But a deep-seated desire to understand the true essence of strength training and proper nutrition led me down a path of self-learning, research, and experimentation.

The Decision to Hire a Coach: A Turning Point

• Empathy for the Busy Woman: I've been in the shoes of the busy corporate woman, the entrepreneur struggling to prioritize health and fitness. Understanding these challenges firsthand, I made a pivotal decision to hire a coach, marking a significant turning point in my fitness journey.

A Deeper Passion for Fitness and Mindset Transformation

• Beyond Physicality: The journey with my coaches transcended the usual ups and downs. It led to a profound realization: fitness is not just about physical strength or aesthetics. It's a complete mindset transformation, impacting mental well-being in ways I never imagined.

• Certification and Transformation: Becoming a NASM-certified personal trainer in 2021 was a natural progression of my passion. Training clients in Austin and pursuing a nutrition certification further solidified my commitment. At 29, I embarked on a bodybuilding journey, experiencing yet another transformative phase, both physically and mentally.

A Leap of Faith into Fitness Coaching

• Quitting Corporate Life: In the fall of 2022, I took the bold leap, leaving my corporate job to fully immerse myself in fitness coaching. This decision was fueled by a desire to serve women, to guide them through their transformative journeys, just as I had experienced mine.

An Invitation to Transformation

• Change is Possible at Any Age: My message is clear: it's never too late to change your life. Transformation begins with a decision and is nurtured by the right support.

Isaiah Searight

From Athletic Prowess to Rediscovery in Fitness

Born and raised in Tinton Falls, NJ, my journey began at Monmouth Regional High School, where the early seeds of my athletic and academic future were sown. My path led me to Fordham University, where I not only accelerated my academic pursuits at the Gabelli Business School, graduating in just three and a half years with a Bachelor's in Finance, but also excelled on the football field.

A Flourishing Collegiate Football Career

• My time at Fordham was marked by a harmonious blend of academic rigor and athletic excellence. As a member of the Fordham football team, I achieved numerous accolades, including being a 3x All-league performer and 4x Academic All-Conference.

• My football career was distinguished by notable achievements, including the 2018 Rich Marrin’ Team MVP and setting the record as the all-time touchdown holder for a Tight End in the school's history.

The Brief Professional Football Stint

• Post-graduation, my football journey reached a pinnacle when I signed a contract with the NY Giants, an opportunity that was both a dream and a milestone.

• However, this professional chapter was short-lived, as injury sidelined me after just one season, leading to an unforeseen end to my athletic career.

Finding a New Direction in Fitness and Bodybuilding

• The conclusion of my football career left me adrift, searching for a new purpose and direction in life. It was a challenging period filled with uncertainty and self-reflection.

• The turning point came when I fully embraced fitness and bodybuilding. What began as a personal quest for physical and mental challenge evolved into a newfound passion, driven by the culture and community within the fitness world.

Personal Interests and Current Life

• My interests extend beyond the realm of fitness. I find solace and rejuvenation in nature, and I have a keen interest in health, fitness, and investing.

• Currently, I reside down the "Jersey Shore" with my fiancé and our two dogs, enjoying a life that balances professional goals with personal fulfillment and joy.

A Transformational Journey from Argentina to Fitness Coaching

Born and raised in Argentina, my early years were far from the world of intense sports. My childhood was spent playing field hockey, and during high school, I dabbled in tennis. Growing up, I was always on the heavier side, with little knowledge or guidance on healthy eating habits.

A Life-Changing Move to the United States

Discovering Fitness: A Self-Driven Transformation

Pursuing a Career in Fitness

• By 2018, with a completely transformed physique and a deep passion for the fitness process, I obtained my PT certification through ISSA. This was a step towards my goal of helping others achieve their fitness transformations.

• In 2019, I transitioned to become an independent trainer, handling both in-person and online clients. This move proved to be life-changing, opening a new chapter in my professional life.

A Deepening Passion for Bodybuilding

• My fascination with fitness evolved into a passion for bodybuilding. I competed in my first bodybuilding show in 2021 in the men's physique category.

• Pushing my limits, I competed again in July 2023, this time in the Bodybuilding class. Each competition reinforced my love and dedication to the sport.

Coaching: More Than Just Training

• My love for fitness is deeply intertwined with my passion for teaching. Guiding people towards healthier lifestyles and witnessing their transformations brings me immense joy.
