    Tory Wright BS Dietetics- Bikini Pro Direct Asst. to Adam Bonilla, Personal Trainer and Bikini Posing Coach

    Tory has been passionate about the health and fitness industry since she started running cross country at the age of 12. She went on to run for the varsity team all four years of high school, and was named Female Athlete of the Year as a senior. She turned down a scholarship to run in college and landed herself at Illinois State University. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science and an emphasis in Food/Nutrition/Dietetics with intent to change people’s lives through diet and exercise. Her passion for running continued in the meantime and since she was 18, has been training for, and thus far, raced 8 marathons in 7 different states. Including qualifying twice for the Boston Marathon and beat “Heartbreak Hill” in 2013. A competitor at heart, Tory has turned her attention from running to weight lifting and has recently entered the world of fitness competitions and contest prep. In her short time in the sport thus far, she won the overall title in the NPC Bikini Division at her first show, as well as the overall in the Muscle Mania Natural Figure Universe Division. She is eager to continue on!
    Despite her sporty background, Tory has long battled with the same body image issues and lack of self confidence we all encounter at some point in time. It wasn’t until she decided to make a change and commitment to her diet and exercise that the self affirmations and positivity starting rolling in. Tory has taken moments of pain and turned them into pride, and she is living proof it really isn’t “the weight you lose, it’s the life you gain!” Tory wants to help show you what living fit, happy and healthy really means and assist you in understanding the parallels to the gym and life, while giving you the confidence to throw in a flex and show off the guns every now and then, just for good measure.

    Sam grew up in Colorado and attended Colorado State University; graduating in 2011 with a BS in forensic science; primarily studying human biology and anatomy.

    After having her daughter at a young age, Sam struggled with weight loss for years.  She tried fad diets and yo-yo’ed; always gaining back more weight than she lost.  In 2014, her weight peaked at 205lbs.  She decided it was time to make a long term commitment and lose the weight for good. In a year, she lost over 80lbs with consistent exercise and clean diet. Through acquaintances at the gym, she picked up an interest in weightlifting; ultimately leading to bodybuilding and fell completely in love with the sport.  In 2015, she sought the help of Adam Bonilla and Team Elite Physique to optimize her contest prep. Since then, she has compete in the NSL, Muscle Mania, and most recently, in the NPC. In 2017, she took 1st in the Steel City Championships, and then 1st again at the Colorado Muscle Classic.  Next year, she will compete for her dream of earning an IFBB Pro Card.
    Sam hopes to use her story of recovery and transformation to inspire and motivate others in all stages of their fitness journey. She is ecstatic to work in the industry that forever changed her life.
    “Far better is it to dare mighty things; to win glorious triumphs; even though checkered by failure; than to rank with those poor spirits whom neither enjoy much, nor suffer much because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt
