Hi everyone! I’m Gina Moss. I’m a trainer, barbell coach, and group instructor here at the Pittsburgh Fitness Project.
My Fitness Background
My fitness journey began at a young age when I was involved in various sports. However, it wasn’t until my early 20’s that I really started to prioritize strength training and improving general physical wellness. I remember how uneasy I felt stepping foot into the gym and learning to lift weights for the first time. I’ve learned quite a lot since then, and I enjoy using my experience and education to help others who may feel some uncertainty about starting a fitness routine.
After about a year or so of working out on my own, I decided to join a Crossfit gym, which led me to find my passion for Olympic-style weightlifting. Eventually wanting to pursue weightlifting further, I joined the barbell club here at PFP. What I discovered from my years as a member here is that I enjoy coaching equally as much as I enjoy training!
Training Style and Philosophy
As a trainer, I provide encouragement, guidance, and education. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing others reach milestones they didn’t think they were capable of. I am also a firm believer in establishing key fundamentals to ensure proper movement patterns and injury prevention.
My philosophy is based on consistency and patience, which I believe are the two most important components of any fitness routine. Establishing attainable short-term goals in which you can monitor your progress is a crucial component in achieving your long-term vision of success.
Education and Certifications
I am a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and has her USA Weightlifting (USAW-L1) certification. She also holds a degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant.
