Where you start and where you end up in life will never be the same.
Growing up as a gymnast in Toronto, Canada, Linzi Martinez competed as a kid till she was 21 and for over two decades has been a coach. As much as she loved gymnastics, nothing really compelled her to think or become a personal trainer. After earning a degree in Communications from the University of Windsor and working for a marketing firm, she felt that something was missing. Linzi says, “Marketing was more about me and not at all about changing lives.” This motivated her to leave that industry, go back to school and major in nutrition. Shortly after, she moved to Florida with her three kids.
