Brien Shamp won first place in the Met-Rx World’s Best Personal Trainer Contest in 1999. There were four categories and Brien took First in the post-rehabilitation category for the personal training he did with Linda, helping her to speed up her recovery after her acl/pcl reconstructive surgery. Linda also lost a significant amount of weight in the process by following a specific nutrition program developed for weight loss, pain reduction & recovery.
Linda’s transformation was featured in Ms. Fitness Fall 2000 Success Stories section. In addition to winning first place in the post-rehab category, Brien received two honorable mention awards for the personal training transformations in the weight loss category he had with Cheryl & Caroline.
