Valerie Waugaman-Gal -- who portrayed Siren on the television show "American Gladiator" is a three-time international figure-bodybuilding champion and my long time friend.
I met Val at Cleveland State where I was instructing a Thai Chi class and she became a stellar student. She in turn taught me many things, like keeping my energy strong all day, making the most of my training time and preventing doubt and procrastination from holding me back.
She is a motivational speaker and has created a non-profit organization, FitMission, with the goal of educating people about fitness and to inspire them to improve their quality of life. She has her own video series on Bodybuilding.com entitled "Fit Mission Revolution!" Check it out and about the photos, we had fun working together, as she is also a pretty darn good photographer.
