My name is Jowanda Durham and I am an actress, filmmaker, and personal trainer. I have been lifting weights and training my friends for over 15 years. One day in 2012, I decided to get paid for it! I started training clients at a local gym in Brooklyn where I earned the reputation as a top trainer. I train privately in gyms, homes, studios, corporate facilities, and parks. I am passionate about fitness. I focus on helping people build lean muscle mass and educating women on the importance of strength training. My philosphy about fitness is simple. “If you are able to move, then you must train your body.” I believe that the body will do what it is told to do over a period of time. My training style is a mixture of functional and traditional exercises. I use athletic drills, dance, yoga, and pilates to keep my clients excited about their workout. I am certified through the American College of Sports and Medicine. My blog is designed to help you train hard…eat clean…and look great!
