Get to know Trudie German, one of our incredible fit52 trainers! You may recognize her from our in-app exercise cards, where she guides users in how to achieve proper form throughout their workout.

As the founder and creative force behind her own personal training business, Trudie prides herself in encouraging her clients to achieve and celebrate their goals, regardless of fitness level or background. Here is what she had to share about her favorite inspirations and tools for an active lifestyle:

What’s your secret to starting the day off right?
Reading my bible, repeating my affirmations and setting my intentions.

As cliche as they may sound, I find the days I neglect one or any of these, my day goes awry or I can’t seem to manage the calamities thrown my way.

How do you honor your body and stay active?
MAKE and HONOR my workout time. That’s non-negotiable. Also, learning what movements and foods work with my body. Just because it’s healthy doesn’t mean it’s good for me!

Trudie’s Wellness Picks:

FRÉ Skincare
Their products keep my skin glowing, even when I mess up and train in makeup.

Lee’s Good Fat Blend
It tastes so good to cook with. I’m addicted to it. It’s one of those “it tastes too good to be true” foods.

Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
This is the only thing that works for my lips year-round.

Do you have a not-so-guilty pleasure?
Moscato wine—a glass, maybe two (or the entire bottle, but who’s counting LOL)

What fuels your soul?
Nature and movement. Being out in my backyard doing something in nature just gives me a HIGH!

What motivates you to stay the path?
My clients. I work with women over 40 and when we get to the point where they actually LOVE looking at their bodies naked in the mirror, I feel a sense of pride and accomplishment for helping them arrive there.
