About FinasWorld
Joined November 2017
My name is Serafina MacDonald. I was born and raised in Napa Valley California....AKA "The Wine Country". Growing up as a child I was definitely a "Daddy's Girl", which kinda made me a "Tom Boy" so to speak. I grew up hunting, fishing, and playing sports with my dad, as well as building things with my grandfather and Cooking and Gardening with my "Nonnie" which is Italian for Grandmother. I was lucky to learn ALOT outdoors and in the Kitchen, growing up, which I am IMMENSELY THANKFUL for now!!!...Why?? Because unlike many adults today, I was raised to not only be self sufficient/ sustained (I honestly could still survive with out a GROCERY STORE.....Unlike 70% of America....LOL!) But I am a Hell of a Cook as well!! :)

So shortly after early childhood, I began to play EVERY SPORT available to me,...Gymnastics,Little league, Soccer, Tennis, VolleyBall, Basket Ball, SoftBall etc. However, right about the age of 14 I was introduced to WEIGHT LIFTING. A friend of mine had joined the tiny little gym that was in our home town of Calistoga because her boyfriend had joined and showed it to her. So one day she brought me with her and the moment I stepped into this place......I was immediately IN LOVE!!!

Even tho I had always liked playing sports....what I really enjoyed the most was the "TRAINING", not necessarily the competition or games....or even the fact that I was part of a "TEAM"...THOSE things were the aspects that I really wasn't into....I know, STRANGE....Right??? HOWEVER,.....with Weight Liting, it was ALL about ME!!...I could TRAIN HOWEVER I WANTED TO!! ....I could do WHAT I WANTED TO DO, WHEN I WANTED TO DO IT, and since I was always STRONGER than most kids my age (actually even more than the BOYS that were a few years older than me....Hahaha!!) I could PROGRESS at my own pace......THIS WAS AWESOME!!! Not to mention that the owner at the time was Michael Schlump who was back then (we are talking late 80's- early 90's) an IRONMAN Chanmpion!! (if you are unfamiliar with the IRONMAN event its a TriAthlete event that is basically a RACE that consists of Running, Swimming and Bicycling......BUT FOR MILES!!!)....So what my point is,....I had an AMAZING PRO ATHLETE at my disposal to seek advice. And THAT....I did!!

I will never forget the day that I spoke with Mr. Schlump and that very day...he gave me the BEST ADVICE EVER....."Go across the street and buy a magazine called MUSCLE &FITNESS;.." So THAT I DID!!....IMMEDIATELY!!....I went across the street to the Drug Store and found that magazine.....and from that moment on....I was in AWE of BODYBUILDING!!!...The Amazing Physiques...the amount of weight that these SUPER HEROES were lifting!!....OMG!!...I was only 14 yr old when I discovered this.....BUT....I knew THESE WERE MY PEOPLE!!!... Corey Everson, Rachel McClish and Sharon Bruneau I thought were GODDESSES!!!! Let alone the Men were INSANE!! Dorain Yates, Arnold Schwartzneger, Tom Platz, Franco Columbo, Frank Zane.....all of which to this day are still Bodybuilding LEGENDS.

Now before I ramble on too much about this, let me mention the fact that ever since I could actually WALK as a toddler, evidently I was ALWAYS trying to LIFT things that were TOO HEAVY for me....at least according to my parents...lol! They actually thought it was pretty funny! I guess I used to watch my dad lifting the few weights that we had in the garage?...IDK?? Hahaha!!.....So my point it that I always had a fascination with being strong, which seemed to come naturally to me ever since I was a toddler.....Now lets fast forward (I do actually have a point....bare with me....lol!)

Many years later, after High School, I met an aspiring Bodybuilder who was a PERSONAL TRAINER.....I was like "You're a what?"....I had NO IDEA you could actually GET PAID TO LIFT WEIGHTS AND SHOW OTHER PEOPLE WHAT TO DO!!!!?????....OMG!! ...THIS is what I MUST DO!!!.....So even tho I was giong to school for CAD (Computer Aided Drafting), I ended up quitting that (A whole other LONG STORY...lol!) and went to take college classes to learn all about every aspect of becoming the BEST Personal Trainer! You see, of course I knew that I needed to take a National Accredited Certifiction, but I knew that those "Certs" were basic and I wanted to be BETTER. So I enrolled in the local JC and began taking Nutrition, Sports Medicine and Sports Psychology...I then went on to take Sports Specific Conditioning, Advanced Sport Medicine and Sports Nutrition. All of which I was blessed with some of the BEST professors on the planet!! One having been the Athletic Trainer for Track and Field for the Summer Olympics when they were in Georgia, another who had actually received one of his PHDs on the Text Book that he wrote that was our curriculum material for Sports Psyche and the list goes on.....

However Shortly after 1st semester, I was in the FIRST,....of 3 CAR ACCIDENTS that happened over 2 and half years.....I was at that point declared DISABLED by my Board Certified Surgeon and He told me that I would NEVER Hike, Dance, Play Sports , Let alone LIFT WEIGHTS....AGAIN!!...I was 21 YEARS OLD.

However, since I had already been going to school for Sports Medicine and my MD had just told me that I'm Pretty Much SCREWED.....I figured that if anyone was going to REHAB me .....It was going to be ME!!!...I mean the doctor just told me I'M SCREWED....so what else do I have to lose...??? And truth is, after LOTS of hard work, dedication and NOT willing to accept what he was telling me I Not only DEFIED his diagnosis (when I went to see him about a year later,his jaw hit the floor)...SPEECHLESS....when finally he said "You should not be here doing that!???"As I showed him how I got my flexibility and range of motion back to BETTER than it was before..... Truth is, I was NOT going to GIVE UP MY LIFE....NO MATTER WHAT.

Now lets Fast Forward AGAIN, about 12-13 years later.....after going through a bad divorce I decided to move to the LA area for a brand new start and to go back to Fitness. Upon Moving there, I crossed paths with a man named Scot Mendelson, whom is the WORLDS STRONGEST Bench Presser....He hold 63 World Records that include both RAW and Equipped. (Too much to write...just Google him...LOL!)..Anyway, upon meeting him he looked at me and said..."You look strong....Ever Power Lifted before..?"....I was like "No, WTF is THAT??"....Hahaha! I seriously had no idea, remember...I was into Bodybuilding. So he explained it to me and said I should come check out team practice....So I did....and THAT is when I discovered something I WAS REALLY GOOD AT.....A sport based on STRENGTH!!!.....Long story short....I DID NOT want to compete.....However, somehow he talked me into it....So my first competition was the APF California State Championships....which I won Bench and Deadlift for my weight and class....Actually set State records in both. Which Qualified me for US Nationals....So I flew to Baton Rouge Louisiana the VERY NEXT WEEKEND....and WON NATIONALS!! And got a couple US records there as well....Hehe!....All of which qualified me and got me an INVITATION to the WPC WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS to represent the USA!....Despite the fact that I was SO HONORED....unfortunately I didnt have $8K to travel to Czechoslovakia and compete, so I wasnt able to compete....Eventually in 2014 when I again earned my spot to represent the USA at the WPC WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS which were in Florida I was able to go!! However, because I missed my chance to compete because my coach didnt check and confirm what time I was supposed to be there.....I retired due to heart break.

Even tho i retired then from Powerlifting, I did continue to independantly Train clients specializing in everything from Injury Rehab, Sports Performance, Weight Loss and Lean Mass Gain. I also write customized and personal food plans for clients as well as do Customized Meal Prep (I actually make their meals for them which are weighed and measured based in the individual clients specific GOALS and "LIKES", because I do not believe in making people eat things they HATE!!....That sets them up for FAILURE!!

So "In a Nut Shell"....That's ME!!....I apologize for rambling on,...and on, and on...lol!! BUT i figured that if this community here is as AWESOME as it is said to be, the more you know about me, my background and WHY my niche will be Health & Fitness related the better!

Hope that you enjoyed the read!

All the Best!

Hey Serafine,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well Serafine and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Alternatively, click on this link which takes you to the same place: If there's anything you need some help with I'm just a click away! Simply reply to this message and I'll get back to you asap.

Anyways Serafine, it's wonderful to have you as part of the WA community and I wish you the very best of success on your journey here!
