My name is Anjelica Ruiz. I was born and raised in a small military town in southern Georgia. In 2011, I graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. Prior to graduating college, I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. During that time, I dedicated much of my time to studying God’s Word and transforming my behaviors and habits to become an emotionally and physically healthy young woman.
I am engaged to Super Bowl Champion (Seattle Seahawks) James Carpenter, who currently plays Left Guard for the NY Jets. We met two years ago & ever since, we have been working together on creating our happily-ever-after. He is my best friend, he’s also from Georgia, and also a Christian. Together we enjoy watching TV shows, taking trips to the city, trying new restaurants and spending time with our families. We aspire to purchase our dream home and raise our family in Duluth, Ga.
As a Personal Trainer & Group Fitness Instructor, my mission is to create a welcoming atmosphere for people of all walks of life. I aim to establish healthy relationships with gym members and clients where they can feel comfortable expressing their goals, fears and weaknesses, as well as sharing their triumphs and successes. I aspire to help people intertwine Faith and Fitness in their journey to a healthy lifestyle.
I believe that at the end of my life, I will be more satisfied with the lives I’ve touched and the people I’ve helped along the way than the things I have acquired. Through Christ, I was transformed and through Christ I am able to help others overcome their fears, redirect their lives and achieve goals that would otherwise seem impossible. I consider my position of service a blessing and I look forward to being a dedicated contributor to the WAGS site.
