Ruth Madrid

Personal Trainer


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.

    Ruth is the truth! Her workouts are always a challenge, but she is a great motivator that makes you want to test your limits. I started out just looking to lose a few pounds, but have lost 45+ since September and am the strongest I have ever been. Each workout since the first session was catered to my goals and unique due to using new exercises each workout. Definitely will not be on a treadmill often. You will be working your ENTIRE body. If you just need a push to get healthy, like I did, Ruth will get you to where you never thought you could be. If you want to be the best you can be, she will get you further. Thanks Ruth!

    I have paid several personal trainers in the past, but none have had the patience, passion or dedication that Ruth exemplifies every time she helps me through a workout. She has motivated me to take care of my personal health.

    Ruth was very dedicated to help me meet my goals. Three months into training with Ruth I lost 20 pounds and felt great!! Till this day, I still work out with her and have met and exceeded my goals.
