We had the good fortune of connecting with Netalia Gutierrez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Netalia, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
I’m still figuring out how to balance of work life and family life while living in this pandemic. Before COVID-19 I wasn’t really taking my business serious and being proactive like I should’ve been. Once the pandemic started there was an immediate shift in my motivation and a fire under my butt. My motivation started changing when I realized I don’t have a job to fall back on. After losing my job I decided to focus more onto what exactly I wanted to do and try to figure out how to help people and build my business. We’ve been in this pandemic for a while so it gave me time to research and learn new softwares and build a stronger community virtually. Not being able to be around multiple people like before really started making my home life a new lifestyle. I had to teach myself how to make my new at-home life somehow feel like my old going out life, it was weird. It’s been hard to try and balance life, work, and maintain mental stability all at the same time, but I’m learning new ways and am constantly thankful to even be alive. 

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Gain Gang LLC formerly known as Gutierrez Gains has grown this past year in ways I never could’ve imagined. 2020 showed me where I could improve my business in order to grow clients and online sales. This COVID-19 virus came out of nowhere and just slapped all of us in the face emotionally, physically, financially, and mentally. I had to become my own boss and go out on faith in one of the hardest times. Not many people can focus on their health while in a pandemic so I’ve been creating new ways to be fit and have fun right at home and the gym. Over the last couple of months while in the pandemic my virtual training has been helping more people working out from home get the gains. I saw the impact from the online training and started focusing on my audience’s diet too. After realizing people were watching me cook my healthy meals on my Instagram page and wanted the recipe I decided to create a cookbook of delicious and nutritious meals. The cookbook will be available early next year so everyone be on the lookout for when it drops on my website. I just want everyone to feel confident with becoming a fitter them so they can teach it to their families and community even if you can’t make it to the gym.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I can’t wait until it’s safe to go out again, I’d meetup with the ladies from Beautiful Boss Queens. We’d go straight from brunch to a photoshoot session because that’s just the BBQ way.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
First shoutout goes to the man above because he has been there in moments I couldn’t be there for myself. I would love to shoutout everyone of my clients for believing in my process from the beginning until now. They could’ve trained with any one but they decided to choose Gain Gang LLC. Because of you guys I get to build, help and create new relationships along the way.
