My Story

As a young teen, I was not very fit and was picked on by other kids. Because of that, I decided in my late teens to get in shape – this changed my life. I then decided to go to college and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education and became a Certified Personal Trainer. That was over 20 years ago and I have been helping people move, feel and look better ever since!

My Fitness Philosophy

Working out can be fun and should be. If it’s not, then you won’t stick with it. So, I try to keep exercise functional and informative, but most of all fun!

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

I began my fitness career as a Health Coach specializing in weight loss and soon discovered a passion for powerlifting. To date, I have competed in 8 bodybuilding competitions and continue to compete in strength competitions. I love empowering people, and am equally passionate at working with beginners and coaching bodybuilding competitors. I work with beginners on foundational movement patterns, building confidence and getting rid of the intimidation they may feel as they get comfortable in the weight room. Some of my clients came to me being new to exercise and are now being coached to compete in Bikini and Figure Division bodybuilding competitions!

My Fitness Philosophy

Focus on consistency, discipline and strength and aesthetics will follow.

My Story

I got into fitness because I wanted to advance my show-jumping career. Much of the horse industry focuses on the athletic ability and fitness of the horse but not of the rider. I wanted to change the thinking of the equestrian field. I also got into the industry because almost all of my extended family is overweight, and I didn’t want my life, my family’s life, or friends to end up overweight and unhappy. I want to promote a healthy lifestyle and be a positive influence in other’s lives.

My Fitness Philosophy

My philosophy is to do what it takes to be and feel your personal best. I want everyone to be able to have the life and body they dream of.

My Story

I grew up in a small town on an Island in the Pacific Northwest. Naturally, I was drawn to outdoor activities and sports. Since I was a child, I have participated in all sports ranging from snowboarding to baseball. This carried me into a life of strength training. Once I graduated high school and spent a few years “finding myself,” or more appropriately completely goofing off, I graduated from SF State with a degree in Exercise Physiology. With this, I combined my natural passions of sports and fitness, and got into the Strength and Conditioning field.

My Fitness Philosophy

Worship your physical self because it is your vehicle for your every desire and dream.

My Story

I'm a Midwest woman with simple ideals. Through travel abroad and exposure to diverse cultures, I fell in love with holistic organic living. I was also constantly training for the next marathon, triathalon, mud run, anything to compete. I found I performed better once my food choices evolved. Long story short, food brought me to San Francisco, where I worked in a couple of accomplished organic restaurants and continued to train and compete. But I found myself yearning for more time in the gym, giving advice to my kitchen staff about working out, coaching my family. I was becoming a trainer and didn't even know it.

My Fitness Philosophy

A balanced combination of strength training, cardiovascular training and nutrition create a life full of joyful experiences. It's that simple.

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 grew up massaging my sister and younger brothers. As a kid, I was always touching and sometimes breaking things, and always hugging on people. Now I know why!

My Wellness Philosophy

Touch is just so magical! It’s in everything, whether it’s giving someone a hug or massaging, or scratching their back. The powerful energy and healing, and understanding the transference that comes from it, can make or break someone’s day and ultimately affect their life in the most powerful way.

My Story

My mother was a massage therapist and I was the one who worked on her. By the time I was 16, I was practicing massage on friends. After a back injury, and stubbornly training in dance through the injury, I was forced to take a break and learn how to heal my body. That was 15 years ago, and I have continued to study as many different modalities and ways to achieve wellness holistically. I am a student of life with a passion for educating and learning from my clients.

My Wellness Philosophy

True health is achieved by addressing the whole self. Massage, bodywork, exercise, the food we eat, living with purpose, having connection to community and our thoughts all allow our body to be free of disease. Our bodies are our incredible vehicle through life; how we feed our mind, body and spirit all creates our reality on the journey.

Shanna

My Story

I have loved giving massages for as long as I can remember. Growing up, a very close family friend would always tell me that I should go to school for massage. Since she started telling me this when I was about 7 years old, I had to wait a while! After I graduated from high school, I went to the National Holistic Institute to train in massage therapy. Since then, I have loved helping people feel better by using the skills I learned there, and have fine-tuned through experience.

My Wellness Philosophy

I feel that massage should be a part of everybody's wellness routine. Massage isn’t just a luxury that people should indulge in when they want to relax. Just as diet and exercise is a vital part of taking care of your body, massage is important to help your body recover.

My Story

Autumn

Pilates Instructor

My Story

When I was younger, I had many health problems that limited me physically and brought me down emotionally. As I changed my environment and my focus, my overall health flourished. Pregnancy was a big eye-opener for me in connecting to my body as a whole, and taking ownership of my nutrition and fitness. I soon left my path as a paralegal and embraced my love for being a mother, and applying to myself the nutritional, physical and spiritual health I wanted to impart in my children.

My Philosophy

I teach in a way that blends a flow of movements with form as a priority so each student can learn to find better posture and awareness within their own body. I believe movement is healing, so stay active and build a practice that will keep you enjoying all life’s adventures.

Karen

My Story

Just as I began working in my first job as a professional ballet dancer in New York City, I was injured in a partnering move that resulted in a spinal fracture. As a last resort to overcome the pain, the doctors recommended Pilates. I attribute my 25-year dance career to the Pilates technique, which became a staple of maintaining a healthy, strong body. Retiring from dance to passing on the Pilates training to my clients was a natural transition.

My Fitness Philosophy

I have always believed that fitness is a combination of many disciplines, Pilates being an important piece of that program. We all have different needs and goals, and as a trainer, I honor the individuality and am inspired by the stories and relationships I build with my clients.

Loan

Pilates/Yoga Instructor

Specialties
  • – Vinyasa Style
  • – Flow Yoga
  • – Movement with breath
My Story

My classes focus on flexibility, strength, balance, and breathing. When I was a little girl, I would roll around on the floor and loved to dance, tumble and express myself through movement. When I was introduced to yoga as a young woman, I knew that I had found what I needed to center myself. I fell in love with yoga immediately from my first practice in 2003 with an Indian teacher in Japan. I felt all sensations from head to toes, and the experience brought me much joy. As a teacher, I see even more benefits of yoga. We use our body weight to build strength, achieve deep stretches and improve flexibility.

My Fitness Philosophy

Yoga helps keep us grounded and helps us to find oneself. Yoga allows the practitioner to discover a limit of their own.

Leslie

Pilates/Barre Instructor

Specialties
  • – Pilates
  • – Barre Intructor
My Story

I grew up dancing, and have always had a love for fitness and a healthy lifestyle. After studying Dance Education at the University of Arizona, I fell in love with the Pilates method and knew that I wanted to center my career around it. I was Pilates and Barre certified in The Pink Ribbon Program, a program designed to train women with breast cancer pre- and post-surgery.

My Fitness Philosophy

My hope is to create strength from the inside out in my clients and to guide them in becoming more aware of their bodies in order to be “at the ready,” whatever that means to them. Living a healthy lifestyle daily is important to keep yourself, and your body, ready and feeling great for what’s to come.

Raised by parents who enjoy doing sports together as a family (my father participated in the Tokyo Olympics in 1964), fitness was naturally part of my life growing up. Now I spread the joy of movement, and how it grounds us to be better individuals.

My Story

I love being active. Movement makes me feel alive and balanced. I’ve always been active—I remember playing basketball, swimming, rollerblading, biking, snowboarding, and hiking throughout my youth. I taught my first group fitness class in college, and exercised through both of my pregnancies—kickboxing, swimming, walking, lifting and practicing yoga.

My Fitness Philosophy

Use it or lose it. How do you get stronger? By lifting progressively heavier, working hard and eating properly. How do you stay mobile as you age? Through functional training and paying attention to what goes into your body. How do you stay motivated? Through habit, challenge and change your routine, and fun.
