Hi! My name is Amy and I am 22 years old! I am originally from small town MN but moved to San Diego, California when I was 18. I had Vertical sleeve gastrectomy on July 30, 2019 and have maintained a 120 pound weight loss.
How did you start your health and wellness/fitness journey?
I started my health and fitness journey the second I decided to have Weight loss surgery. My weight has been something I have struggled with ever since I can remember. I quickly realized that for me, I used food as a source of comfort and as a coping mechanism. I started working out in the gym when I was 6 months post op with my brother, and I haven't looked back since.
How long have you been an athlete with us?
I have been with Bowmar Nutrition since July of 2020, so a little over 2 years now which is CRAZY. I never would have dreamed that one day I would have my own product collabs and it has been so awesome working with them to make this happen. I am so proud of the products / flavors we've made and I hope you love them as much as I do. :-)
What was the first product you ever tried?
The FIRST product I ever tried from Bowmar Nutrition was the strawberry protein! My brother actually was the one who nudged me to try it and I was super skeptical because I was having the hardest time finding a protein that sat well with my stomach AND tasted good. After my first shake, I immediately placed an order and have been hooked ever since.
What made you decide to do the product and flavor you chose?
I chose cherry limeade because I am a BIG fan of the sonic cherry limeades -- they are my JAM. I also chose non-stim pre workout because I know that not everyone LIKES to have caffeine, and Bowmar sells caffeine capsules so you can really make ANY non-stim product a stim product by adding the capsules.
If you were stuck on a deserted island, what three products would you bring?!
Clear skin cocktail packet (hehe that's 3 in 1, work smarter not harder), nut butter, and protein
