Sam N. Hawkins Actor, Celebrity Trainer, Online Entrepreneur. Paying It Forward helping others get healthy and fit while pursuing his passion of acting. However Sam’s passion for fitness began with the old-fashioned saying of “I was a fat teenager, uncomfortable in my own body”. He adds, “While auditioning for a independent film about cancer the casting director praised his talent but condemned his weight. Adolescence was hard for Sam; He ended up going into a three-year depression. During these hard times Sam received a wake-up call and felt he had to do something”.
Since Sam couldn’t afford to join a gym, he decided the only way to accomplish weight loss goals is to be within. Right away he got a front desk job a top fitness facility and studied as much as he could about fitness and personal training. Sam’s desire to learn as much as he could about the fitness industry proved to be fruitful. His background in basic martial arts/self defense helped him become disciplined and focused.
New York City has been Sam’s home. In addition to teaching a variety of fitness classes such as indoor cycling, cardio kickboxing, urban rebounding, body sculpting, Pilates reformer, Insanity and doing personal training all over the city, Sam’s packed classes has developed into his own creation and style. His belief is that anyone can reach their fitness goals if they want it bad enough. This is where becoming a certified personal trainer comes in; Sam realized that he can help more people if he did online fitness coaching. Sam always wanted to expand his passion to coach others around the world into reaching their fitness goals and continue to do so everyday.
Sam prides himself as a fitness coach, to motivate and help as many people as he can to reach there goals. Sam’s classes are about the people who walk through those doors, he teaches his classes the way, he want to be taught when I walks into a class. Sam’s secret for being one of New York’s top fitness professionals…” fun”! “I want to change people’s perception of a workout and help them to see it’s more about having fun with results” He also adds that it’s something that was missing in the classes he took… “without fun there is no motivation. Sam’s motto is “The only person you have to impress in life is yourself”.
