Hi friends! Today I’m chatting with Courtney Alcala all about balancing fitness and motherhood. It can be tricky to do all the things, but she has some great tips and insight.
Here’s what we talk about:
– Balancing a corporate career, training, and life as a mom (her baby is 5 months old)
– Her background in health and fitness
– Behind the scenes of the bikini competition world
and so much more.
Here’s a bit more about Courtney:
Courtney received a double dose of determination and grit growing up as an Army brat. The child of an intelligence analyst and a Green Beret, she learned how to assimilate, make friends quickly, and do things that were uncomfortable at a young age. In her youth, she was very involved with youth group, showing horses, dance team, competitive canoe racing, and salsa dancing.
Courtney’s mission is to build and nurture a fitness community of busy bee women who desire support in balancing their wellness goals with their career and family obligations. She works full-time as a traveling clinical research monitor, and remotely as a fitness coach/community leader. Courtney is a signed fitness model and winner of the 2020 Arnold Classic Model Search, which led to her first magazine cover. She has experience teaching a multitude of GX classes (Pilates, boot camp, body bar, barre, cardio dance, salsa, bachata, cha cha); summits; seminars; and opening gyms.
Courtney is an ACE certified personal trainer and holds her M.S. in Health Education. Her dedication to provide quality education to her clients has led her to work with renowned athletes and athletic trainers. Courtney and her husband welcomed their first baby into the world in May of 2021. She looks forward to leading her first STRONGCAMP postpartum in Spring of 2022, and is currently working with groups of women in her Fitness App to help them fit “fitness” into their busy lives.
