All About Myrna
Myrna is a certified Personal Trainer with a unique back story in that she has undergone a radical physical transformation—she’s lost upwards of 65 pounds—as well as completely redefined her lifestyle—going from sedentary to drill sergeant—in just over a year.
After watching the scale creep past 200 pounds, Myrna decided to give her diet and exercise regime a complete overhaul. She joined Slim and Strong (as a participant), where, as the weeks went by, she started noticing that not only was she getting stronger, leaner, and more fit, but that she was actually good at this exercise thing. In a classic Karate Kid, student-becomes-teacher type plot twist, Myrna’s hard work, perseverance, and positive outlook led her to eventually become an instructor at BBBC and as of recently the manager of Brooklyn Bridge Boot Camp.
Keeping with this pattern of reinvention, Myrna recently left corporate HR to make a career out of elevating HRs! Life as a fulltime trainer has been a good one (have you seen the guns on this woman?), but the best part of the job for Myrna is fulfilling her passion of helping others change and improve their lives through fitness.
Seeking inspiration, along with a good-for-you beat down? Catch Myrna (if you can!) on the Brooklyn Bridge.
All About Paul
Paul grew up in the fitness word as he spent his formative years in his mother’s gym. Not until his mother’s death in 2010 did he rediscover his passion for health and fitness. In one Summer he lost 39 lbs through boot camp training and diet. Paul reconnected with his fitness roots and realized he wanted to honor his mother and her fitness philosophy by participating in various competitions, such as the NYC Marathon and various triathlons and Ironman events. He also rehabilitated his torn knee ligaments through non-surgical, corrective fitness training.
“A few years ago, I added Boot Camp to my training regimen. Not only has Boot Camp helped me to reignite my passion for creative fitness, but I am now surrounded by like-minded professionals and individuals. The synergy is amazing. I also feel “foundationally strong” – something I have always wanted to achieve. Being a part of Boot Camp has taken me to a whole new level of fitness and enthusiasm – something I love sharing with my clients.”
