“It’s healthier to look out at the world through a window than through a mirror... Otherwise, all I would see I is myself, and whatever is behind. My Strength doesn’t come from what I can do, it comes from overcoming the things I thought I couldn’t do. This has been my time and now my Life Journey.”

-Donna Gordon

From Education to Fitness

Donna has always strived to make a difference. She was an honor graduate and a master’s degree holder from the University of Incarnate Word and continued studying mid-management at Our Lady of the Lake University. She even became a retiree educator and GED program provider at the Bexar County Detention Center through the Alamo Community College District.

Due to having a difficult pregnancy, she ballooned up to 255 pounds. She had gestational diabetes and had to take 72 units of insulin daily, along with taking Synthroid medication for a pregnancy thyroid issue.

Despite all of these struggles, Donna gained a purpose to become a role model for other people. She worked excessively at an all-women’s gym, created a strict diet regimen, and enhanced her cardio day and night.

Donna then further challenged herself by pursuing a career in fitness where she competed in bodybuilding. She trained with one of the best in the world, including Brian Dobson of Metroflex Gym, former Mr. Olympian Ronnie Coleman, and former Miss International Vicky Gates.

Donna’s hard work and training bear fruit in the form of bagging awards from various competitions. Through her accomplishments, she established our gym to help others through their journey of self-discovery and physical change!
