Gina Bontempo is a multi-certified trainer and health coach helping people get fit, develop new habits, and change their life since 2011. She earned her Master of Theological Studies at Harvard University, where she was trained as a grief counselor and worked in hospice homes with terminally ill patients and their families. She is also currently Candace Owens's manager.
After attending teacher training at the Yoga College of India in 2013, she traveled around the world for a few years teaching yoga and meditation and studying CrossFit and strength and conditioning. When she came back to the United States, she worked as a Health and Wellness Editor at several media companies, including POPSUGAR Fitness and Teen Vogue, so she knows firsthand what kind of messages we are fed daily from news outlets. Then she left the left. Her heart was still in teaching and coaching, so she decided to leave behind media and go back to full-time training. She’s been interviewed and featured on podcasts to speak about the culture of victimhood in our society, what the negative consequences are of this mentality, and how we can overcome it.
Gina now lives in Washington DC and when she’s not working and training, you can often find her practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and experimenting with her slow cooker.
