exercise. laugh. love.

My name is Colin Burkinshaw and I am the inventor, founder, and CEO of GoWOA. I was an obese child till the age of 15. After committing myself to first lose then manage my weight, I went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree in nutrition from Texas State University. Along the way, I earned 3 different personal training certifications. My goal is to help others achieve the same health and fitness success I have earned for myself.

I spent 5 years working and living in a gym. I became bored, burning myself out to the point where my personal fitness level began to plummet. In order to rejuvenate my passion for fitness, I began running outside and exploring new ways to exercise. I quickly discovered along the way that the great outdoors is a much more interesting gym.
