My Story

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a trainer. I studied Kinesiology in college with an emphasis in health and human performance, then got NASM and AFAA certifications. I’ve lived in Australia and New York, and have been a trainer/fitness coach for 5 years and counting. I am passionate about learning and helping others, and absolutely love what I do!

My Story

When I was young I drove my parents crazy converting everything in the barn into exercise equipment. I would rather read anything about weightlifting and fitness than what I needed to for school. It became very evident that this was going to be more than an occupation, it was going to be a lifetime passion. I was fortunate to have some great mentors from the fitness world that gave me a respect for the history of strength, yet also challenged me to discover what is new and provoking. I spend my days sharing my passion with all kinds of wonderful people...my life is great!

My Fitness Philosophy

Your happiness is your health. The world is best experienced with high energy, low pain, and high function. Physical activity is a source of great joy; find your motivation and stay active.

My Story

Jason learned early, through his own experiences with weight loss and healing, about the potential for fitness to change lives. After losing 50 lbs. and reversing his hypertension, he made it his life goal to change the lives of others. His passion and infectious positive energy make him a great coach and motivator. He creates a safe and non-judgemental atmosphere for his clients, regardless of their fitness or experience level. Jason’s objective for his clients is to help them feel and understand the body in a new and deeper way.

My Story

At the age of 12, I had become the fastest kid in my school, and participated in several different sports growing up. By the time I joined the SFSU Cross Country team, I had a mile time of 4:16. Faced with soreness, injuries, and setbacks, I wanted the knowledge to help myself and others. This prompted me to get my B.S. in Kinesiology, and after graduating, to add more certifications to my tool belt.

My Fitness Philosophy:

Consistency is the key to change. We must constantly train our brain, body, and behavior in order to attain the results we seek. Focus on becoming the best version of YOU that you can be and always remember to go with the flow.

My Story

My passion for fitness started in college, where I played soccer and started learning Karate.
While working on my degree in Economics, I opened up a Karate studio and trained students that achieved ranking championships.

I became a Sport Massage Therapist and Fitness Trainer in 1996, then worked as a trainer for several years, and eventually opened up a fitness studio. I later moved to California to be closer to my family and became a Les Mills and Zumba instructor in 2011 and have been working as an instructor since then.

My Fitness Philosophy

Master your training. Feel your change. End with a smile. Learning is endless.

My Story

I grew up in a small town on an Island in the Pacific Northwest. Naturally, I have always been drawn to outdoor activities and sports. Since I was a child, I participated in all sports ranging from snowboarding to baseball. I am currently
certified as a Personal Trainer and a Performance Enhancement Specialist by the highly respected National Academy of Sports Medicine. In 2010, I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from San Franscico State. I believe the key to my success as a strength coach has been the ability to understand each person’s individual goal and challenges, whether they are a CEO, stay at home parent or an athlete. Knowing what motivates and inspires my client's specific goals, allows for a successful design program with a variety of exercises specifically designed to keep them engaged and on the path to success.

My Fitness Philosophy

I believe that health and exercise should never feel like a chore, but rather something that you should look forward to in order to keep your mind and body as healthy as possible for yourself and loved ones, while enjoying everything life has to offer.

My Story

I trained for and won my first bodybuilding show in 1987, and went on to represent Team Canada at the IFBB Hawaii International Invitational contest. Twenty years later, I was on Team USA and turned IFBB Pro, which was a dream come true for me. I have been an athlete all of my life, but strength training has made such a difference in my life and physique.

My Fitness Philosophy

I found nutrition to be the missing link for success in achieving your fitness goals, so I became certified in nutrition. No matter what level you’re training at or what goal you’re reaching for, I believe in four things: nutrition, strength training, cardio and hormonal balance. I believe in incorporating fun, innovative and effective training techniques that fit into my client’s daily lives.

My Story

I played both baseball and football in high school, and then started lifting. I instantly loved it! I was fortunate to receive a scholarship to play baseball in college, and got an internship from 2 of my college strength coaches where I learned a lot about mobility, strength and conditioning. I have always had a passion for helping people and I love to see others succeed.

My Fitness Philosophy

Fitness is something that should inspire you. No matter what style of fitness you do, put in the effort and make a difference in your life. It's something that should give you joy and help push you to higher goals.

My Story

Growing up, I immersed myself in playing sports and was always intrigued how the human body can compete at higher levels. This was one of the main reasons I went to school to study kinesiology, to become a Strength and Conditioning Coach. During my undergrad, I volunteered in different health and fitness settings such as physical therapy clinics, strength and conditioning facilities, and aquatic biomechanics research labs. This motivated me to pursue a career in personal training after college. I enjoy offering my knowledge in transforming unhealthy habits into fueling healthy minds and bodies. My goal is to pursue a career as a physical therapist while educating individuals on how to live healthier lifestyles by utilizing body movement.

My Fitness Philosophy

Learning how to be comfortable while being uncomfortable is one of the greatest tools to become a better you.

My Story

For years I struggled with poor body image, self-esteem, and my overall health. I’ve tried every diet fad and workout trend out there….none of it worked. Until one day, I decided to take control over my health and delved deep into nutrition and fitness. What started out as a way to be a healthy role model for my daughter ended up a passion and my dream career! Since 2018, I have worked with a variety of clients building functional strength, stronger mindsets, and overall better lives. To better help my clients, I became a Certified Nutrition Coach in 2020 and am currently in a program to attain my BS in Nutritional Sciences, with the goal of becoming a Registered Dietitian.

Fitness Philosophy

Consistency, perseverance, and accountability are the backbone to reaching any goal. With these three, anything is possible!

My Story

After changing by body with weightlifting, and seeing the impact it had on my life, I've been fascinated with the capabilities of the human body. I always knew I wanted to work with people and help them improve their lives, and later realized my passion for fitness. Now I get to do both every day.

Fitness Philosophy

Treat your body as the vessel through which you experience the world, and maintain it to be capable of taking on life's greatest challenges and greatest rewards.

My Story

I first gained an interest in fitness as a freshman trying to get in better shape to make my college teams. That interest developed into a passion, and since then I've dedicated my life to fitness. My training career initially began when I started coaching family, friends and teammates for fun. This career path was an obvious choice as I fell in love with changing peoples lives in the simplest and most realistic way possible.

My Fitness Philosophy

I want people to discover the benefits of training that has helped me become the person I am today.

My Story

Fitness has been a positive influence in my life in numerous ways. Throughout my 60 pound weight loss journey I learned a lot about myself as a person and how far I’m able to push myself to reach my goals. As well, fitness has allowed me to guide and inspire other people. My mission is to get clients to gain physical and mental strength throughout the process. Ultimately, leading my clients to a happier and healthier lifestyle. I continue to expand my knowledge of fitness, health, and nutrition to provide my clients with the best recommendations to accomplish their goals.

My Fitness Philosophy

Your fitness is 100% mental. Your body won't go where your mind won't push it.

My Story

My passion for fitness began with a love of sports, and developed as a varsity athlete in soccer. A brain injury shortened my athletic career, and I started to gain weight and lose confidence. Luckily, I was surrounded by people who got me out of my comfort zone, and learned the discipline it takes to stay consistent in the gym and properly nourish my body. My goal is to integrate exercise and optimal wellness into the daily demands of my clients’ lives. I truly believe exercise not only changes your body but it can also change your mind, attitude and mood. I want my clients to look at exercise as a celebration of what their bodies can do; not a punishment for what they ate.

Fitness Philosophy

Ambition is the path to success. BIG results - starts with small ambitions.

My Story

Since I've been involved with the fitness industry for over 30 years, I believe you must first be Healthy before you can be Fit. Health and fitness starts and stops with understanding what works best for the individual and their lifestyle. Not only have I learned invaluable training from working with a wide variety of clients I've also gained first hand experience from my own successes and failures.

Fitness Philosophy

Make health your personal responsibility and take pride in feeling and looking your best!

My Story

I first made the connection between fitness and wellbeing in junior high when I got straight A's after a season of being on the cross-country team. This trend in my life continued with stints in martial arts in both my teens and 20s. Later after my own weight loss journey, I realized that if I enjoyed this journey so much, then I may as well make it a career. Along the way I've come to realize that as a professional, sharing my own health and wellness journey with my clients is the best way for both of us to accomplish our goals. As a Massage Therapist and Fitness Coach, I am devoted to helping people discover the connection between their physical health and mental health.

Fitness Philosophy

Long term consistency trumps short term intensity.

Darlene has not only helped me achieve my fitness goals, but has provided the most support and knowledge about health and fitness anyone could ask for. I am a working mother of two, and with her help I have transformed my ‘Mom bod’ into a lean, mean bodybuilding machine!

Marissa O.

Steve has been my trainer since I joined Forma Gym over 6 years ago. He is professional, warm and friendly. I am very pleased at how well he tailors my training, reflecting his understanding of what works for me combined with his extensive knowledge as a personal trainer. I continue to grow stronger and firmer and look forward to each session with Steve.

Claire B.

Darlene has been an amazing guide on my journey to be strong, healthy and confident. She is an excellent teacher, who knows how to be supportive and motivating while simultaneously kicking my butt! Darlene has helped push me to be stronger than I ever thought I could be, all while emphasizing correct form in order to lift safely.

Yalda V.

"In just over 3 months of working with Steve I lost over 25 pounds, got much stronger, and developed more disciplined eating habits. Steve is the type of trainer that encourages his clients to reach their goals through consistent positive motivation. He is always excited to start a workout, and keeps things varied enough such that they never get stale. As a former Division-1 NCAA athlete, I've been exposed to lots of coaching in my life, and Steve is among the very best I've come across. I highly recommend Steve's services."

Mike K.

Tracy gave me confidence that it was great to start working out at any age.....no guilt trips. Tracy has also helped me with the nutritional aspect of my health. This has definitely been a life-changing experience. I am happier, healthier and am enjoying increased strength and energy. It truly is NEVER TOO LATE to change old habits and get moving in a healthier, happier direction!

Jane R.

After quitting dance about 4 years ago, I suffered with finding my passion again. Darlene put me on a sustainable meal plan and a workout plan tailored to my goals. I have lost 20 pounds and 8% body fat. Most importantly, I have found fitness to be my true passion and I am living with more self confidence than I ever thought was possible.

Marissa L.

Steve has me in the best shape of my life and has helped me with my nutrition as well. He is very good at customizing my workouts to help me avoid re-injuring my back and to make sure we are strengthening it as well. He keeps the workouts exciting and fun and provides motivation on those days when you just don’t have it.
