Zadia Murphy was introduced, by her parents, to the concept of optimal health and wellness at an early age. Zadia swam competitively for 15 years and learned how discipline, tenacity, dedication, and consistency can elevate one to greatness in every aspect of life. Her love for movement grew as she pursued a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science at the University of Houston (GO COOGS!). It was not class, however, that inspired this growth.
Murphys inspiration came from the whopping 40 pounds she gained during winter break of her junior year. Zadia remembers feeling uncomfortable in her skin, avoiding friends and family, and feeling embarrassed to see the consequences of her taking her problems out on her body. Zadia made the personal decision to change her life, she took her gym membership out of retirement and began eating clean. After obtaining her degree, Zadia honed her craft through personal studies and certifications with the National Association of Sports Medicine. Zadia is known best for her holistic approach, results driven cross training techniques, and supreme ability to motivate.
