Barbara Molyneaux, IFBB Professional – Personal Trainer, Nutritionist and Mind Shifter

My background was always in athletics.  I was a competitive swimmer for years starting at the age of 4.  I still hold the regional record that has not been broken yet for the 100 M Breaststroke, 1 min. .21 sec. June 26th 1985.  Training like this for years, has led to the early development of my physique. I’ve played volleyball, soccer, basketball in high school and did track and field.  I’m proud to be a natural athlete, and have just celebrated my win at the Natural Nationals for the International Events Qualifier for the World’s.  I placed 1st in Figure Masters and Overall.  I placed first in Figure class D (by height). With three medals and a beautiful trophy, I’m extremely happy that my hard work,  poise and positive sportsmanship has worked in alignment with my goals.

I work hard every day to a better me. My goal is to educate people on the power of believing in themselves. I have been forced to learn a lot about myself as well as be creative in my endeavors and goals. I have discovered that if you want something bad enough that there is always a way to achieve your vision while maintaining integrity, morals and values. Because of the limited amount of space on the ships, I have also found that you learn a lot about people very quickly and that respect and decorum go a long way. It is these conditions that have helped me hone my strengths and weaknesses alike. I believe in treating people as you would want to be treated and that what you manifest to the world, the world will offer.

I come from the marine industry where I have experienced remote and isolated living for months at a time. During my 16 years at sea I have been forced to overcome many obstacles in my fitness and nutritional needs as well as needing to rise above the challenge of working on a moving and very dynamic platform. Working on a confined and unstable platform makes for personal life and working out a challenge to say the least. On the ships, I noticed the need for a healthier shipboard lifestyle, for myself and fellow crew members and embarked on a journey of improving the quality of lives through better nutritional awareness, physical challenges and a change of mindset. After working with various crews, I noticed that the moral of the ships changed. Learning new things became fun as they tested their limitations and challenged each other. People were getting along and were much happier, there were less injuries and self-confidence began to soar. Are you looking for this kind of change?

  1. Progress is never linear. We enforce good form over amount of weights used every time.
  2. When an exercise is too hard due to equipment or ability, we will always know when to use regressions during your workout.
  3. Our backgrounds in stage competitions imply that results are crucial to success. So, we do not obsess about functional movement training and provide a balance of exercises and practices to deliver maximum results.
  4. We do not just use machines in your training regime. We use all sorts of equipment, free weights, tubing etc.. to deliver maximum results.
  5. We don’t pretend to know the answer to every question.  As great coaches we are aware of the limitations and gaps in our knowledge, and not afraid to hit the books and research in order to improve our understanding of a particular topic.
  6. In diagnosis of pain or injury, we point you in the right direction for further study, and refer you to experts when necessary. We work with RMTs, Chiropractors and  M.Ds in different fields to help you.
