Life & Work with Maddison Baumann

Today we’d like to introduce you to Maddison Baumann. 

Hi Maddison, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
My name is Maddison Baumann. I am 26 years old and have been working out & lifting weights consistently for about 7 years now. It has become one of my biggest hobbies/passions over the years and has even developed into my career! I graduated in 2018 from the University of Wisconsin La-Crosse with a degree in Exercise Sports Science and Nutrition. During that time, I worked at multiple gyms and taught a variety of HIIT and group classes. Since graduating I have continued my education to become a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM, which is what I currently do for work today. I am also a Certified Nutritionist/Nutrition Coach through ISSA! In my spare time, I enjoy training for and competing in natural bodybuilding competitions and recently earned the title of an OCB and Natty Revolution Figure Pro. I started my own business because I want to share my heart, knowledge, and passion for health and fitness in order to help others in any way I can with their own personal fitness journeys. I want “healthy” to be an easy, exciting lifestyle for everyone. I truly believe there is no better feeling than helping clients achieve the physique of their dreams, so that’s what I set out to do! 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
With anything, challenges are inevitable. When starting my own business, I self-taught myself a lot and am constantly learning through experience as well as my mistakes. I’ve had to learn how to do all business and admin tasks on my own, which is out of my typical realm, and as outsource when needed. 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a certified personal trainer and nutritionist. I primarily help clients with weight loss but am a bodybuilding coach as well. I specialize in helping clients build lean muscle mass while simultaneously losing fat through diet and exercise. I strive to educate clients throughout their journey so their weight loss can be sustainable and long-term. I believe health and fitness is truly a lifestyle and strive to empower my clients so they can create and maintain healthy habits for life. What sets me apart from others is my ability to empathize with clients. I have personally never had a weight problem but I have undergone extreme weight loss while bodybuilding and know the hard work and discipline it takes to commit to a diet and workout program in order to better yourself. My first weight loss client was also my dad, so I can relate to having someone close to me struggle in that area. 

How do you think about happiness?
My family and puppies are probably what brings me the most joy and happiness in life. All the memories I have been able to make with them over the years mean more to me than anything else. We love traveling and doing anything outdoors. That is one reason I strive to take care of my body so I can do things I love with people I love and live life to the fullest.
