Strength and Challenge with Shannon Seeley
June 1, 2021
Nationally Ranked Physique Competitor Shannon Seeley brings us the story of how a woman can be powerful, beautiful, confident and oh yes, a mom.
Shannon has been In the fitness industry for as long as she can remember she has a background in running and way before the muscle was packed on she was an all state distance runner.  Through her childhood though Shannon suffered from severe clinical depression and bulimia nervosa. After health took a toll on Shannon, she knew her health had to change in order to survive . She began training like a bodybuilder in early 2011 and by 2014 had competed and won her first show and was addicted. For the past decade Shannon has grown her career in bodybuilding significantly as well as transitioning from her career in finance to a career in personal training and nutrition.  She now loves to envelop her passion for fitness to others through personal training as well as online clientele as well. 
Besides being an influencer Shannon also is a sponsored athlete for Titan Nutrition and Transcend HRT. Shannon is unique as an influencer as she shows behind the scenes and what it takes to get to where she is. She is open with her PED usage as well as her stack of supplements she takes from Titan so that people aren't weary of her results. 
"I take what I do very seriously - being an influencer, you literally are telling people about your life. I hate when influencers and athletes short change their actual results and hide all the bullshit they don't want the public to know about. I am an open book. I am proud of who I am, what I do and my main goal is to give people the tools to create their own confidence and love who they are. I am a bodybuilder in the most simple terms. To be a bodybuilder you have to do things that normal people would not want to do. You have to practice what you preach, train fucking hard, eat the bland ass diet and do what needs to be done". 
Life off social media is much quieter. Shannon and her husband reside in the middle of the woods in Michigan.  "I like the quiet . When I come home from the day I want a place where I have limited cell and internet service. I can decompress my thoughts,  spend time off my computer and phone and just enjoy all that God has given me. My 2 favorite people in the world are my husband and daughter and being able to just spend time with them after a long exhausting day is the epitome of perfection for me. - People don't actually realize that I am a homebody, I love being at home. I don't enjoy being around people and I just like my own space and time".
