RUTH THE T-RUTH MADRID
My journey in the fitness world began at an early age growing up in rural El Salvador, Central America. I was more of a tomboy and enjoyed doing physical activities such as climbing trees, swinging from vines and jumping over obstacles. Traversing the mountainous terrain in my village, on a couple of occasions, I was faced with life or death situations of having to flee the impaling horns of bulls. Both instances I narrowly escaped. I also had a reputation for being able to outrun older boys in foot races. Arriving in the US, although very athletic, I never competed in organized sports. In high school I was a “Gym Class Hero,” pun intended. I often wondered how good I could have been. I believe this is what sparked my interest in fitness and first set in motion the challenges of self motivated competition. I began reading, getting my hands on any published literature pertaining to fitness and started my quest from there. For many years in the gym, I had numerous people approach me, asking if I was a personal trainer and/or if I compete. I was laid off of my job at a major bank in the real estate finance department and I guess it was the wake up call I needed to finally give fitness my full attention. I figured, others see my passion, maybe this is the right time to act upon it. I now wonder why it took me so long to figure out this is where I belong. Being conscience of my gift for health and fitness, I hope to be an inspiration to others to take action and not settle for complacency.
