Personal Trainer Shara VigeantWelcome to my website. While this website serves as a tool for my business, I am also using it to keep my clients, friends and family updated on my progress as an athlete. I first shared the journey that lead to my career as a personal trainer on ABF Magazine following my first competition. At this time I welcome you to view my ‘before pictures’ and read “Shara’s Success Story” to learn more about me. I also encourage you to read my contributions to ABF Magazine: “Female Bodybuilding” and “Post-Competition Dieting”, along with a feature article published in Edmonton’s Real Estate Weekly.

Bodybuilding is the reason I am a personal trainer today. After my own trials and tribulations with weight loss, bodybuilding lead me to the answer to an issue I had struggled with for years: How can I feel better about me? That answer is now clear. By adhering to the strategies and attributes that the bodybuilding lifestyle demands - hard work, perseverance, commitment, integrity and honesty within oneself - I now believe I am as close as I have ever been to solving this problem. The simple pursuits towards better mental and physical health and wellness consequently lead me to a passion my life had been missing.

That passion is in helping others learn to feel good about themselves and how to transform their lifestyle so that they may forever feel better both mentally and physically. I don’t believe in fad diets, quick fixes or magic pills - they don’t work and or don’t exist. I believe in teaching how to change the very habits that have brought you to the place you don’t want to be. That is what worked for me. There is nothing more rewarding to me than watching a client fulfill their own goals and hearing them tell me how GOOD they feel and how they believe they have permanently changed their lifestyle. When someone feels good about themselves, it infects all aspects of their lives - career, family, finance, etc.

I hold accreditation by the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT). I will also be obtaining my National Strength and Conditioning Association – CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist), as well as certification through the American College of Sports Medicine. While I understand that certification is necessary to ensure a more complete education, I will always feel that my own experiences with training, research and trials have given me the confidence and knowledge to safely help change others’ lives.

I am also proud to announce that as of December 2006, Scott Abel, strength and conditioning specialist and coach, has taken me under his wing to mentor me in his training protocols (Innervation Training, Metabolic Enhancement Training (MET) and Hybrid Training) and nutritional techniques. I am truly honored to be learning under someone who holds 20+ years of knowledge in the fitness industry, has 200+ titled athletes and whose dynamic protocols and methods change trends in physique development. I feel that being taught by Scott far outweighs ANY certification and accreditation available because of his knowledge base, his passion, and his REAL approach to training and nutrition. He is very well respected and sought after in the fitness, health and wellness, and strength and conditioning industries.
