Naty Nurge

 

M.S. Engineering, CFO, Women’s Fitness Specialist and Co-creator of Everything

Naty Nurge is a 45-year-old Lifelong Fitness Trainer & Multi-Sport Pro Athlete who specializes in helping women get leaner and stronger, without getting bigger, or getting hurt.

As beautiful, conscientious, and confident as she is, when she toes the race line—which she’s done many dozens of times— She struggles with one doubt, ‘who will finish 2nd?’… because she’s typically out in front! This applies to most men she goes up against as well.

Born and raised in Medellin, Colombia—which many consider the beauty capital of the World—she has always placed a priority on looking great, but was never willing to compromise speed for aesthetics. 

Now, with the help of her favorite CAT and Movementegrity™ exercises, she’s figured out how to look strong & sexy, while still performing outdoors like a 20-something elite athlete. 

Known for her sharp wit and abs that can light up a room, she’s much more than just a business-minded creative who is always looking to take things from good to great; she is the company’s CFO: Chief of F#%King-everything Officer.

“The Quality of your Training inside reflects the Quality of your Life outside”.

Naty Nurge

If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.

Eight years ago Naty and I were complete strangers living the same active lifestyle, with the same values, in two totally different countries 3,562 miles apart. We were both fit, happy, and had everything we wanted in Life with one HUGE exception: True Love.

So we both did—independently– what any highly motivated sentient athlete would do: we sought out the best Tools, Training, and Tactics to find our Soul Mates. We chose Match.com as the state of the art/best “tool.” We trained ourselves in the subtle art of online courtship; and employed the same tactics that worked well for us in sports: patience, persistence, perseverance.

After a month on Match I found her! I didn’t care that she was in Colombia living with her family and had zero interest in “gringo’s” or the U.S. All I cared about was what I could see in her smile and intuit from her Match “profile.” The second I saw her 1st picture I knew she was the one…Zero doubt. So I wrote to her immediately and 2 weeks later received a lukewarm reply. She wanted a soulmate in Medellin, Colombia…NOT “almost Canada!!!”

I was cautiously relentless, and eventually landed a call. It was love at first Skype but she was still stuck on the geographical challenge… So 3 weeks later I flew to Colombia for a breakfast-date, and the rest is history. Soon thereafter she flew to Sun Valley, Idaho and I proposed to her atop a 12,000 foot peak.

“YES!!!” changed our lives in every conceivable way possible. YES, meant a LOT of hard work, and a LOT of financial resources (immigration lawyers are expensive!), and a LOT of stress, but it was worth a LOT more than any amount of money, or anything else in the World to us.

Our advice to anyone looking to evolve and change their life for the better is SAY YES!!! You’re never too old—we were 37/50– to go after your dreams. While we can’t help you find your soulmate, we can definitely help you find the best tools, training, and tactics to evolve your soul into a more fit; feel good; look great; happier version.

Working together, we totally got this…
