“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.”
Bo Northrop, of “Training By Bo”, has been a professional in the health and fitness industry since 2002 and is a Certified Personal Trainer and former NPC Bikini Competitor. Her Zumba class was featured on the Channel 8 News in Las Vegas, NV in 2009. She’s lived in Newport Beach, CA, Seattle, WA, and Las Vegas, NV, where she now resides, since December 2015.
Born and raised in Newport Beach, California, Bo was involved in many sports, including Gymnastics, Ballet, Sailing, Soccer, Volleyball, Swimming, Softball, and Tennis. Ultimately, Bo focused on Tennis and attended the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Bradenton, Florida, known for producing athletes like Andre Agassi & Jim Courier.
After studying weight training at San Diego State University, with an interest in continuing her athleticism and conditioning as an adult and an inquisitive mind for what was “true or false” in health and fitness, Bo sought out to become a fitness professional and find out for herself.
Armed with compassion, education in various modalities and levels of exercise, a knack for motivating others, and a reputed quirky sense of humor, Bo has helped her clients and class participants to safely achieve their goals, be it to improve conditioning, to lose body fat, to “get bigger”, to “get smaller” or to get off that expensive medication by reversing some of the symptoms present with high blood pressure, high cholesterol (the bad kind), or Type 2 Diabetes, for example. Now, in her mid-40s (ahem!), she specializes in general fat loss, strength, conditioning, in-home rehabilitation after physical therapy, surgery/therapy prevention, and prenatal or postnatal conditioning.
A little-known fact about Bo is that she attended U.S. Maritime Academy to get her U.S. Coast Guard approved Captain’s License. Juuuuuust a few days shy of sea time, though… So close!
