Meet ReebokONE Ambassador, Men's Fitness contributor and fitness instructor Natasha Linton.
Natasha's a longtime Instagram FITOutfit supporter so when BEHIND the BRAND became a reality, I knew Natasha had to be involved.
This super mom and wife is sharing her BEHIND the BRAND story of how she transitioned from former athlete to fitness professional.
NAME & TITLE
Fitness Instructor & ReebokONE Ambassador
What inspired you to become a fitness pro?
Growing up I played basketball and was into various other sports. The transition to fitness enthusiast and then fitness professional was natural as I always loved moving like an athlete and breaking a sweat.
How did you become a Reebok Ambassador & Men's Fitness contributor?
Those gigs were years in the making. I'd stay up late nights writing and made it my duty to network and attend conferences. I worked hard to build my profile so big brands would notice.
What's been your biggest success thus far?
Balancing it all. Bouncing back from a rough post pregnancy, motherhood, wifehood, writing, teaching and training.
Conversely, biggest failure?
Missing the first two episodes of the Walking Dead this season. But seriously, I wouldn't say failure, but something I need to learn is to do is take more breaks.
Top three things you wish you knew when you first started
Hmm, tough one, but one thing I know is I wish I got into group fitness a long time ago...I love it!

What advice would you give to female fitness bloggers/trainers looking to work with big brands?
Make sure your brand looks good online and offline, make sure you know what you're talking about and get a mentor.
We're in the last quarter of 2015, so what's next for you?
New training programs/NYC studio gig to be announced. Stay tuned!
