After 5 years as a Corporate Fitness Director, I was inspired by an article I read about how fitness needs to look beyond “bricks and mortar” to grow the industry and launch itself into the world of the internet. I began searching for something exciting and unique in health and fitness. Sadly, I was not successful in finding it.
Then, I started thinking that if teaching, promoting, training and consulting in health and fitness is to move beyond bricks and mortar, how are the pros going to do that in the fast-paced, technologically advanced environment known as the internet? Like many other professionals, I had no idea how to go about building a website, developing a presence on social media or promoting a business in those formats. One thing I did know, it would take a lot of time to be effective and competitive in those formats and, at the same time, actually train clients, develop healthy recipes or teach classes. Where would I find the time? How would other pros do it and still run their businesses?
Then I asked myself, what if all of that promoting, posting and web site managing was done for me? That would leave me a lot more time to do what I enjoy, helping folks lead a healthy and fit lifestyle.

Fiteeza's Social Media Strategist
Bridget lives and sweats in Boston. She is an athlete and a former ballet dancer turned runner. In 2018 she will embark upon her first marathon training journey as she prepares to run the Boston Marathon. In addition to running, Bridget enjoys trying new workouts like boxing, pilates and next up, aerial yoga!
As a Virginia native, she graduated from Radford University with a degree in Corporate Communications. Then, true to her adventurous spirit, she moved to Boston to pursue her Masters in Global Marketing Communication from Emerson.
Bridget has always had a passion to connect and engage with people so when it came time to search for a career, consumer engagement, marketing and social media strategy was a natural fit. Joining forces with Fiteeza allowed Bridget to merge her passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle with marketing and social media.
In Boston, Bridget is a member of Mystryde, a running studio where she first heard her favorite motivational quote, “Yes You Can!” This quote engages and encourages every time it is said. When she is working out alone or out on a run and not feeling it she’ll say this to herself as a mantra and a new energy will arrive. Try it!
Bridget is passionate about trying to do better every day. She knows that taking small steps today will equal a better outcome tomorrow. We all have bad days, but even then her goal is to look for the good things. It may be as small as a nice cup of coffee or getting a new pair of running shoes.
Yes you can!
