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.

I love helping people feel comfortable in their own skin, while helping to implement long lasting habits to achieve a healthy/balanced lifestyle. Main focus is for you to feel strong, confident, and excited about fitness! I’m passionate about helping people become the best version of themselves through finding the correct form of exercise and nutrition for each individual!

My Story

My passion for exercise began at an early age when I was in junior high school. I was very fortunate to have support in the process. Each year, I had mentors in nutrition and training which led me to improve more and more and by the second year of training, I was able to accomplish competing in various bodybuilding competitions. This sport completely changed me, giving me confidence and a strong mindset and now it is my life.

My Fitness Philosophy:

Exercise is a way to connect with the body, mind, and spirit. It provides an equilibrium in your life maintaining focus, motivation, strength, and happiness.

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.

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

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

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 Story

When I was a kid, I always knew that whatever I was going to do, it was going to involve helping people. Initially,I wanted to step into the field of psychology or medicine. As I’m soon coming to realize, college might not be the path meant for me. At an early age, I fell into a crippling addiction, leaving me severely underweight, and bearing a number of health conditions. A little over two years ago, that all changed when my father introduced me to bodybuilding. My mindset shifted, my habits changed, and I felt an overwhelming hunger for knowledge pertaining to building muscle and nutrition. Pushing myself in the gym every day had lit a fire in me that I hadn’t seen in years. It soon became very clear to me that helping people achieve their health and fitness goals was what I wanted to do.

Fitness Philosophy

Whatever you do, use today to become 1% better than you were yesterday.

My Story

Six years ago, I found myself struggling with gut health issues and chronic physical pains. To add to that, I was chronically overwhelmed and stressed. Feeling like I needed a change, I left my corporate career in the fashion industry and took some time off to heal myself and find my true calling. That's when I decided to become a coach. I got certified in health coaching, life coaching, nutrition, and fitness, and now I help purpose-driven men and women build a strong body and mindset. My ultimate goal is to help my clients experience personal freedom and peace, without the pain, guilt, or shame. My training includes studying under Tony Robbins and attending the Landmark program. This has allowed me to understand how capable we are when we break through our negative self-talk and limiting beliefs. When we work together, you will become physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually stronger.

My Fitness Philosophy

There's nothing holding us back besides ourselves. Change what you tell yourself and your mind & body will believe it and achieve it.

I got into training because I used to play varsity basketball. I wanted to learn how to improve my performance. After years of playing ball, I injured both my knees and was in pain. I met my coach/ mentor.

Through his guidance, I was able to regain strength, mobility, and most important of all, I was finally pain free to play the game that I love again. I am here at Forma to help our members startfeeling good again.

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.

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.
