Born and raised in San Jose, CA, Ginger Fox has been active and enjoying exercise from a young age. She was an accomplished runner until too many injuries forced her to retire. But she continued to stay active, practicing various forms of exercise both inside and outside of the gym.
Ginger received a blessing in disguise when she injured her ankle running because it directed her to focus on weight training. The changes to her body were phenomenal: not only was her workout time more efficient, but she was able to eat more while maintaining her ideal weight! Ginger used to think that weight loss was all about cardio, but she proved that theory wrong, and was pleasantly surprised at her personal results.
Ginger is a mother of twins and decided to leave her career in hi-tech to be a stay-at-home mom. When her twins were two, she went back to the gym. Working out became more than just staying in shape and being strong–it was important for keeping a positive mental state of mind. Over the years she realized that fitness was not just a hobby, it was her passion.
Many friends and trainers at the gym were persistent in telling her that she would be an excellent trainer. Loving the way her workouts made her feel, she decided that she wanted to share that with others and became a Personal Trainer.
When she researched The Perfect Workout, she didn’t realize it wasn’t just a conventional gym, but one that was focused on the revolutionary slow-motion weight training method. She knew right then and there that this was the perfect job for her.
It makes Ginger super happy to be able to help, challenge, and hold her clients accountable for their health and wellbeing. “Also getting to know my clients and their personal lives 1-on-1 has been a bonus.”
Ginger worked with a particular client, a woman in her 80’s for 2 years. “She’s a hard worker and committed to her health.” She had osteopenia and after just one year of training with The Perfect Workout, she overcame it. For her 80th birthday bash, she wore a sleeveless dress. She never imagined at 80 years old that she would be wearing a sleeveless dress. “She received so many compliments at her party. She thanked me and said it was all because of me and The Perfect Workout.”
Ginger’s goals for the future are to learn as much as possible about nutrition as possible and raise her twins to be the best they can be. “Both of these will be challenging and I’m just thankful that I have a job that makes it possible allows me to be present in my kids’ lives every day.”
