From The Desk To The Gym With AUTUMN MCGARVEY
Fitness has always been a part of my life. I was always an avid sports fanatic, playing volleyball, basketball, and softball in high school and basketball in college. I received a degree in finance from St. Ambrose University. After college, I was employed by Wells Fargo Bank as a Personal Banker. I knew then that this was not the career I wanted for the rest of my life. I did not want to sit behind a desk. I wanted to change someone’s life in a positive way by improving their health, fitness, confidence, and self-esteem. Jon DeBord gave me an opportunity to chase after my dreams and pursue my passion. I worked for Kewanee Physical Therapy and Rehab Specialists as a Front Desk Assistant before transitioning and receiving my Certification in Personal Training from the American College of Sports Medicine. Since then, I haven’t looked back! Every day I train individuals ranging from young athletes wanting to get faster and stronger to elderly clients wanting to maintain the activities of daily living. What I love about this career is how rewarding it is. I get to motivate individuals, watch them make progress, and help them achieve their goals. A regular exercise routine has great rewards! I want to give you the motivation to keep pushing to achieve success.
