Meet TheFitGal Founder
Colleen Gallagher

Hi, my name is Colleen Gallagher, current fitness competitor, WBFF Diva Bikini Pro and founder of TheFitGal. My love for fitness started way before I can even remember! I played multiple sports growing up, with soccer being my favorite by far, I went on to play at the University of Northern Iowa while also earning my B.S. in Kinesiology (Exercise Science).

While I am now a fitness professional, being physically active and fit wasn’t always easy for me. I sustained a concussion that left me permanently blind in my right eye during a soccer game my sophomore year of college. I lost my depth perception and got dizzy easily. I had to learn how to run again in addition to finding new ways to stay fit.

As a naturally competitive person, not being able to compete in a sport left me feeling lost. I continued looking for avenues to stay active with my visual disability, but it wasn’t until my senior year of college that I found my calling.

I was interning with a company in Illinois called Premier Fitness Solutions where my passion for health and fitness was taken to another level. One of the trainers at the gym was preparing for a fitness competition and after I looked deeper into what that was, I had my “Aha!” moment. This is how I would stay active while fulfilling my need for competition.

With my background in Kinesiology, a lot of research, guidance, and intense training, I entered my first fitness competition and placed 1st in the Bikini Division, which earned me my WBFF Pro Card! I cannot put into words the accomplishment and excitement I felt.

After receiving a flood of emails, texts, and messages on social media sites I decided to launch my own business, TheFitGal! My company helps women of all ages get in shape and have fun doing it! Not only will you look and feel better, but by joining TheFitGal you become a part of something bigger than yourself. You become part of team of women who have all the same goals and push each other to reach them!

My mission is to aid women in creating a healthier lifestyle through proper nutritional guidelines with individualized personal training, no matter their level of fitness. TheFitGal gives you the tools you need to change your lifestyle and finally get the body you have always dreamed of!
