My name is Lina Eadon, and I am a part of an amazing YDM Fitness team.
I grew up in Eastern Europe, a tiny country- Lithuania. I was involved with my school's Track Team, Volleyball, Cheerleading, and competitive Ballroom Dancing/Coach for 10 years throughout high school.
Even though I am a Civil/Environmental Engineer I have always been passionate about nutrition and sports. After becoming a mother to three amazing girls (twins + one) I put everything on hold and became a stay-at-home Mama. While I Iove my family and am grateful for my life I lost myself along the way.
Something needed to change and that’s how I stumbled into YDM fitness and started to train with Tommy over 2 years ago. I was hoping that he could build my strength back after I had a knee injury. Little did I know, that it will help me emotionally and give me my confidence back that I was missing. I fell in love with strength training, which led to competing in the Bikini Division and Bodybuilding. With Tommy’s leadership, I won my PRO card in 2019 and have been competing since.
The lifestyle I adopted reminded me how healthy and confident I wanted to feel. I began to grow a bigger passion for helping people overcome the mental block of being lost by sharing my passion for nutrition, exercise, teaching ways to stay consistent, and break the YO-YO diets. LOVE the body you are in!
I have been personal training at YDM since Fall of 2020 (education through ACE and Tommy's leadership) and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. To me, this is NOT just a JOB. It’s important to see someone go through the experience that makes them happy, confident, and strong! Come and check us out!
I grew up in Euclid, OH. I played Football in the 7th grade and broke my knee unfortunately but I didn’t give up my goal of playing football. Eventually, I healed and played Football and ran track for EHS. I made the News-Herald All-Star team in 2012 where I suffered a broken ankle.
I had an athletic scholarship to Notre Dame College. I couldn’t play anymore due to my injury so I lost my scholarship. During this time I was 18/19 years old and I had to get a job. I started working at the Dairy Mart where I picked up bad habits of excessive eating. I was going through a depression stage so all I did was eat and drink.
I started to notice a major change in my mood and of course my weight. I knew it was time to make a change but mentally I wasn’t ready yet. I stepped on the scale one day and the scale read 315 POUNDS! It was time to make a change. At the end of 2016, I started my fitness journey. It was a long road but it took hard work, dedication, and perseverance!
Toward the end of 2017, I lost 100 pounds. I was highly motivated and wanted to try something new! I wanted to be a bodybuilder. That’s when I met Tommy! He helped me reach a level that I never thought I could reach. In 2018 I did two bodybuilding competitions and became a Professional Bodybuilder by my second show!
I’ve been training for three years now and still a student in this industry I learned a lot from Tommy. I helped many people within my three years of training. Fitness has become a lifestyle for me but my overall goal is to help people reach their goals mentally and physically!
Growing up in Madison Ohio I have always been active and just liked being on the go. I was involved in Track, Cross Country, and Basketball throughout high school, however, my passion was Baton Twirling. I twirled and coached on a competition baton twirling team and also competed as a soloist with USTA, United States Twirling Association, for 15 years.
After I graduated from high school I attended the University of Toledo. Coming from a sports background I was focused on Exercise Science, but I was 18 and wanted to be on MTV so I changed that. I graduated from UT receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Communication/Media Studies.
I was a retail Store Manager for many years and traveled often to support new store openings. Later in my career, I picked up some unhealthy habits that led to weight gain. I'm someone who is high speed all the time and I was starting to feel sluggish.
I found YDM and started training with Tommy in 2017. I originally signed up for a six-month membership, but then I never left. I forgot how much I missed the fitness community and that re-kindled the spark to make it a part of my lifestyle and future career.
It's a great feeling to move the pin on a machine when you can move more weight and I want to help motivate others to feel the same. I received my Personal Training Certification in December 2020 through NASM and am hoping to compete in Body Building shows in 2021.
