Coach Tam was born in San Diego, California. Moving around quite a bit as a child due to her fathers’ job as a United States Marshall. Her family settled down in Magnolia, Texas where she did most of her “growing up”, making her a true Texan, accent and all! At this young phase in her life she fell in love with athletics, which was a mandatory in middle school. She quickly became known as the squat and dead lift queen which resulted in the nickname "Quadzilla" due to her massive quads. Playing multiple sports such as volleyball, track, swimming, and power lifting in grade school as well as at a club level, is what guided Tamara’s passion for the gym and throwing weights around. It became her second nature, sanctuary and my home away from home.
Embarking on the college scene Tamara found local gym to train and work part time. The owners and trainers quickly took Tamara under their wing and became her mentors and family. Encouraged her to get her first personal training certification with PFIT, known as a very popular and difficult training course in Texas. This ignited the birth of Tamara’s career as a fitness professional.
After school and finding love with a San Clemente native, now coach Tam was ready to fulfill her goals and move back to beautiful California, put down roots & share her passion for fitness and health.
