Jamie Nguyen – Barbell Strong
Jamie Nguyen is a Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor & Weightlifter in her 20’s. She founded Barbell Strong to spread health awareness, inspire and empower young women through strength training & fitness.
We created her website to showcase her personal training services. This is a custom wordpress site which includes testimonial section, newsletter & social media integration. The site is mobile optimized.
Jamie is in her 20s and wanted a look that was empowering because she was a powerlifter, young and fun like Victoria’s Secret Pink, something that would also resonate with the college crowd. This was the influence behind the web design.
Her name is Jamie Nguyen, usually goes by “MissJamie”, and she has been in the fitness industry for over eight years. She is a graduate of the University of California, Riverside with a degree in Psychology. During her undergraduate studies, she was a personal trainer and learned about the importance of a balanced mind and body. This enabled her to develop a sense of urgency about the benefits of strength training and found her passion for spreading health awareness. Currently, she is a CPT (Certified Personal Trainer) and group fitness instructor in the San Francisco Bay Area working with individuals and groups of various backgrounds and talents.
Becoming stronger is the central theme to her life. Alike many, the thought of weight lifting seemed intimidating initially, especially for a female. She started weight lifting at the age of 12 during a time when it was not a popular sport for women. By progressing and doing something that females were not known to do gave her a sense of courage. She felt alive and found peace knowing that there was a place for everyone in the weight room. This was her niche in life and it became not just a sport but also a lifestyle.
