Local woman living her dream

April 5, 2017   ·   0 Comments

What are the odds that a small gym, that began with eight people would attract over 800 people, or that a woman’s passion for good health would raise her from trying out a surprise gym membership to being one of the top contenders from over 1,000 entrees for Muscle and Fitness magazines’s Ms. Health and Fitness?
Becky Overbeck is living with those odds, and on the right track to top them all.
The internationally acclaimed title “Ms. Health and Fitness” would award Overbeck $20,000 and the chance to be featured in the popular go-to magazine for body builders and exercise buffs. Overbeck has worked her way into the top 10.
“I love what I do,” Overbeck said, bouncing in her Kangoos, revving up for one of the classes she teaches from her home gym. She teaches up to four classes in one day, and has never cancelled a session. “It’s my dream come true.”
Overbeck’s dream team feels the same way.
“She’s an amazingly generous woman,” said one participant. “She loves her work, so caring about people in the classes, where we are coming from, what we want to achieve. I’ve lost over 30 pounds and she’s as excited as I am. She understands.”
The understanding comes through Overbeck’s own path to fitness. Seven years ago, after the birth of a third daughter, Overbeck came to a turning point in her life.  Keeping up with a growing family required energy, stamina and motivation; the challenge of keeping fit was successfully answered with an unexpected gift of a gym membership. When the gym closed, Overbeck gained certification and began teaching out of her home, relocating to her current location in Everett when the numbers called for expanding her newly discovered passion.  She teaches muscle building and fitness for all levels, personal training, life style and diet counselling. She began a Facebook page to reach out to those who could not attend her classes, and has worked with over 900 women in her goal to raise awareness of the importance of good health and fitness.
Her success was recently noticed by the readership of “Muscle and Fitness” magazine, and she was invited to participate in the international competition for Ms. Health and Fitness, but to reach this goal she needs your help.
