CEO Iron Angels Fit Club
Sharon Marie Madsen has been involved in fitness since her first dance class at six years old…
‘I danced on and off throughout my life, ballet, pointe and Broadway style jazz. During this time, my weight training experience was limited to classes that used tiny Barbie weights and stability ball. Lol! 🙂 I performed with my local studio up until my early 40s. At this time I started having health problems and had a hysterectomy at age 41, after that I struggled with pre-menopausal weight gain and hired a trainer and discovered that resistance training could change my metabolism. I was ‘skinny fat’–small framed with high body fat. I lost 10 lbs of body fat within a few months.
I wanted to let other women in on this ‘secret’ for fat loss, so I went to training school at age 48. I started my training career in a weight loss clinic and shortly after as an independent trainer in both Lynnwood and Bellevue, WA training in-studio and in client’s homes. I opened Iron Angels Fit Club in 2015 with the vision of creating a studio specifically for women 30-55+ to learn weight training in a comfortable, private environment.
I joined Iron Angels organization shortly after it was formed in 2012 by Tammy Marie and Denise James. Denise was my very first bodybuilding coach and helped me to win first place in my very first figure show in 2011 at age 50. I was awarded my pro card in masters figure in 2013.
Tammy and I discovered early on that our visions were aligned, and it was only a matter of time before we would make that vision a reality with IronAngelsFit.com.
We want to see all women succeed in getting fit and that in turn will help them achieve great things in their lives.
