Monedero began her fitness career over ten years ago after a long career in marketing, having been Vice President of Business Development at Bank of Sacramento, Senior Account Executive with the Sacramento Business Journal, and Account Executive for the launch of a national education/technology monthly, "Converge Magazine."
After having her second child, she decided to leave the corporate world and go back to school studying nutrition, a subject in which she had been involved with most of her life. Her family has long had an organic farm called "Sleepy Hollow Farms" in the foothill community near Sequoia National Park, where they raised organic walnuts, apples, and cage-free eggs. Plant-based foods for healing and organics have been part of her life for 35+ years.
After discovering she really enjoyed physical education, and how exercise has significantly improved her own life, she focused on studying the American College of Sports Medicine exam; considered one of the most rigorous exams that certifying both fitness and medical professionals in the health, nutrition and fitness industries. Becoming a certified trainer, she joined Gold’s Gym with the single intention of gaining back-to-back client training experience in a gym environment, counter to her typical outdoor-type training, and with the end goal of starting her own mobile fitness training business.
In 2010, she started "Get Fit with Monica," and has been helping clients with lifestyle changes through exercise and diet.
