Halfway through nursing school, Bridgett realized that “a shot for everyone just wasn’t something I could believe in,” and changed career paths, giving over to her lifelong passions: being physical and eating well. Born in west Marin, the daughter of nutritionist Kristin Sullivan, Bridgett never rebelled against the healthy lifestyle her mother encouraged—to the contrary, she embraced it 100 percent. Even as a kid Bridgett was always pushing her limits. Today, she helps others get beyond theirs, too, as they train with her to run Tough Mudders—an endurance-obstacle course that’s probably the toughest event on the planet. Not all Bridgett’s clients are hardcore athletes—far from it. She also loves showing teenage girls that it’s cool to be strong and seniors that they can do more than they ever thought possible. Recently, Bridgett’s specialized in small-group training, boot camps, as well as pre- and post-natal conditioning. The mother of three young boys, Bridgett understands that finding “me” time isn’t always easy. For many of her clients, the fun and supportive environment of group training makes it the perfect way to work out. What Bridgett offers is not society’s body images but real functional health and fitness from the inside out—and a big dose of positivity.
- Work hard to play hard.
- Training small groups but personalizing the exercises for everyone.
- To inspire people to value health and to appreciate the role that being physically fit plays in increasing longevity.
“Bridgett keeps me motivated with her upbeat and encouraging attitude. She’s also helped me adjust my eating habits. I’ve lost weight, have more energy and am much more toned. Many of my friends have noticed the difference, and three of them now work out with Bridgett. So does my husband. A few weeks ago, I wore a bikini for the first time in over 10 years! “
