You’ve seen her hyping up boot campers in our locally famous 30 minute bootcamp. You’ve seen her around the gym training clients. This week’s blog post is all about Club Fit personal trainer Missa Miller!
To get to know Missa a little better, let’s rewind the tape (do people still say that?) a decade or two. After high school, Missa settled into a sedentary life-style, which we all know can be very easy to do. They even have a name for it, the Freshman 15.
Being less active led to being overweight and was followed by years of struggling with physical and mental health issues. But then one day she decided that enough was enough. She wasn’t going to self sabotoge anymore.
(Missa Before and After she decided to take charge of her health and fitness)
Once she decided to focus on improving her own quality of life, the positive effects of the life-style change were undeniable. Every area of her life seemed to improve so Missa decided to become ACE Certified in Group and Personal Training with the goal of helping others achieve the same positivity in their lives.
I love Missa’s story and I caught up with her in the gym to ask her a couple of questions so we can get to know her a little better.
What made you decide to be an trainer?
I became serious about my well-being in 2015. I was struggling with a laundry list of issues, and some of those things started to get better the more healthy I became. If they hadn't disappeared all together, they had at least become manageable. I know that almost everyone has some if not all of the same problems I was dealing with. I believe that if I could help myself feel this much better, I could try to help others find some relief as well.
What is your favorite thing about training?
Seeing people smile. We are carrying around stress 24/7. If I can put someone through a good workout and keep them focused on something positive for 30-60 minutes of their day and send them out with a smile, I consider that a win. Sometimes we just need to check out to reboot, so that we can handle all that life puts on our plate. I believe fitness is an excellent way to do that.
Where are some of your favorite activities and or places to visit in Little Rock?
The outdoor space to enjoy while being active around the city. The parks and river trails provide an opportunity to be in nature and take a time-out while still sitting right in the middle of the city.
