Gillian Young is a Certified Personal Trainer and Health Coach living in Monterey, California. She is also a Natural Bikini Competitor, business owner, fitness model and badass who wants to give back to the world. Her vast work experience covers a broad range of jobs that fed her love and curiosity for health and food.

Her coaching business grew organically from people asking her for help with their diets, and her love of fitness blossomed when she discovered how strength training could transform her body and calm her emotionally.
