Personal Success Story
Brian Bowen 's Success Story
My proven results can be seen through my personal story of health and wellness advancement.
I developed my fitness based experience and background initially through the United States Marines Corps from 2003-2006. Towards the end of my career in the Marine Corps, I was in a tragic car accident which resulted in a severed aorta and 11 broken ribs. After 10 months of bed rest and rehabilitation, I was released from the Marine Corps. I continued the next few years living an unhealthy lifestyle. Falling into the cycle of materialism and societies social standards, I ultimately gained over 80 lbs and my health regressed dramatically. Though I pursued a career in Information Technology, my passion for fitness was lying dormant.
In 2008, I looked at myself in the mirror and made a personal commitment to change my life and start living a healthy lifestyle. I immediately changed my diet and started a progressive exercise regimen. Within 9 months I had lost the weight I gained and made the decision to change my career path and focus 100% on physical fitness by pursuing a career as a personal trainer.
I am able to utilize my personal experience in my training to connect with clients and ensure their attainment of their personalized fitness goals. Since becoming a certified trainer, I have gained extensive experience within the fitness spectrum. Aside from my personal accomplishments, in 2009 I began training clients. In 2010, I started training the Florida Atlantic University Rugby team as well as worked as an intern training NFL rookies. During that time, I also played Division I rugby with the Boca Raton Buccaneers.
I am now currently located in Huntington Beach, CA and train out of the South Coast Athletic Club. As well, I am currently the Assistant Coach and Trainer for the St. John Bosco Prep High School Water Polo Team. I continue to develop and expand upon my skill set through the attainment of additional advanced fitness and nutrition certifications, as well as obtainment a BS in Nutrition & Dietetics from Cal State University: Long Beach. Following this, I plan to become a certified Registered Dietitian.
