All of our trainers are certified and/or have a four year college degree in Exercise Science. Our trainers are experts at designing and implementing fitness programs to meet your specific needs.
Each trainer has a background training in Kinesiology (science of human movement), Exercise Physiology (study of the body’s responses and adaptations to exercise), Biomechanics, and Nutrition & Sports Psychology.
I became interested in personal training while working towards passing the Seattle Firefighter’s exam. After passing the physical exam, I decided that firefighting was not the best career for me, but it did spark my interest in the field of fitness and training. I have been involved with the fitness industry ever since, for over 7 years.
I became an NCSF certified personal trainer in March of 2009 so that I could share my knowledge of sports and strength training with others and help them achieve their fitness goals.
Since my certification, I have worked as a Trainer with the Seattle YMCA and have been able to work with a wide-spectrum of clients.
I am also an amateur boxer and Ultimate Frisbee coach for high school and middle school teams. When I am not training or coaching, I can be found road racing with my cycling team, chasing a Frisbee with my Ultimate team, or enjoying the quiet of a long backpack trip.
Hello my name is Corey Blue and I am here to train you! I have the honor of currently being the only trainer in the Portland/Vancouver area!
I have been working out for a good 10 years now and recently I have acquired my personal training certificate through the ISSA. I also have my CPR/AED certification.
I have done mostly weight lifting in my time but for about a year now I have been getting into Crossfit and implementing that in my workouts.
I look forward to starting this career and helping to change people's lives!
Hello, my name is Arica. Growing up I was an active child that participated in as many sports as my parents would allow. After my completion of high school I realized soccer was my true passion. I started my soccer career at Tacoma Community College where I also received my AA degree.
Continuing my education, I was accepted into the University of Washington but had many troubles on choosing a major. Still having the desire to play soccer at a competitive level, I transferred to Central Washington University where I completed a Bachelors degree in Recreational Management.
I went onto the next level of soccer when I became a part of the Seattle Women Sounders. I know what it takes to be at the top level and how to get there starting from the very bottom. I decided to carry on my education by enrolling in Pierce Community College Personal Training Program to gain more assets in becoming a personal trainer. Through their program I was able to become an ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) certified personal trainer.
Hi, I'm Sabrina, certified personal trainer and certified running coach.
My passion is running, though it did change my life. I was a smoker for 10 years, and after I quit I decided to try running to attempt to fix the damage I had done. I could run ONE block. Then two. And so on. Awhile later I had a friend challenge me to run a half marathon. And I did. Once you start running and pass a point, and get what is called the 'runner's high', you never go back. That's when you are a runner.
I love sharing this gift with others, how to become a runner, ways to cross train and add all the other healthy fun stuff to keep you where you wanna be! And did you know, running is one of the top ways to lose weigh?! I am looking forward to helping many enjoy a healthy lifestyle through running and workouts that will keep you challenged and wanting to go further. Strength doesn't come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't.
I have my degree in exercise science pre-physical therapy with a minor in health psychology.

My journey in the fitness world, started as a save the earth kick. Early in my college education, I studied environmental science and renewable energy. However, during my sophomore year, I saw a troubling statistic about the top killers in the United States. Many were completely avoidable with good diet and a healthy lifestyle. At that point, my priorities changed. I changed my major because I realized I could do more to improve the world by helping improve the quality and length of life of those I come in contact with. I have been a personal trainer for over two years now, and I have loved every second of it. I have my Bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Wellness, where I focused on obesity and weight management. I have my Personal Training and Corrective Exercise Specialist Certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I specialize in weight loss and functional movement because I getting fit should be a natural, enjoyable part of life rather than a chore. I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to help so many people on their fitness journey. My goal is to help you reach your individual goals and enjoy life.
I grew up in the North West and I love exploring the great outdoors with my family. We enjoy going camping, go on hikes, or simply take long scenic drives.

I received my degree in Fitness in 2008 and certification through The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
Since becoming a new mom, I have a better understanding that it takes time and persistence to achieve healthy results. Results takes baby steps with will power. I enjoy motivating people to reach their greatest potential and encourage to achieve their best and healthiest version of themselves. Physical activity along with healthy nutrition is a large part to achieving overall wellness. Our bodies are designed and created to move therefore we need to be wise as what nutrients we put into them. Love your body and strive for greatness. It is not going to always be easy therefore I am here to help.

Hello! I am a recent Eastern Washington University graduate, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science with a focus on physical therapy. My inspiration for personal training has evolved over my years of college.In high school I was very active in sports, but never took exercise seriously. I began my freshman year of college with absolutely no knowledge of exercising or lifting weights. I found myself just going directly to the cardio floor of my college gym because I was afraid of what people would think of me. I began going to the gym daily later on that year, and fell in love with exercising.I even began to lift weights, incorporating resistance training into my daily workouts. Once I began to see a difference in my personality and my body I fell in love with improving my health and fitness level. During my sophomore year, while struggling to find a major, my mom told me to write down the things that I loved doing. As I was writing this list I found myself enjoying everything about health, exercise, and helping/watching other people achieve their goals. This is one of the reasons I decided to go into this field and begin my journey to become a personal trainer and in the future become a physical therapist. One of my main goals for my clients is to have them experience a lifestyle change and accomplish their fitness goals. I'm here to build a program specifically tailored to each client and teach them ways to enjoy exercising, in order to increase the chance they will stick to the program. I enjoy all types of training whether it is circuit training, classic bodybuilding styles, fat loss programs, functional movement training, or whatever style that will work best for you and your goals!
I was born and raised in Tampa, Fl and relocated recently to the Portland, Oregon area.
My passion has always been centralized around fitness and physical activity. I grew up as an acrobat and dancer. I have been involved with teaching and directing dance classes, teams, and private individuals over the past ten years. While I was finishing my Bachelor’s degree, I moved to NYC where my fitness passion sparked. When I moved back to Florida, I started training others on a more fitness and conditioning level as I continued specializing in dance training.
I very much enjoy working with others to help them exceed each one of their goals and expectations. Helping them create a strong mind-body connection is crucial. I believe that anyone can improve their fitness level.
My workouts are geared to complement your lifestyle by making the quality of your life better and more enjoyable. I like to challenge my clients to keep them focused, but also motivate them by creating functional, rewarding, and fun workouts! I’ve worked with a diverse group of clients and individuals. I love being creative and coming up with unique routines that are specific to each client. My devotion to my clients and their fitness goals allow me to forever grow as an individual and trainer.

Fitness is a key segment of our lives - you too can feel the benefits of a healthier way of life! Join me on this journey!
Many people have this preconceived notion that Fitness Trainers have been fit all their lives, but in reality, this is not always the case. Many of us have a story (stories) that have brought us to where we are in our life & career.
Most of my life I had been active, including being in the Army National Guard & Army Reserves. Life took its toll when I became a stay at home mom in 2002, and hit hard late spring of 2002 due to health issues, then pregnancy. By my 7th month I topped the scales almost 300lbs and quit looking. After, my son was born, I stayed at 230-226 despite my own efforts. I decided enough was enough. I joined an all-women’s gym and started working with a Trainer. Halfway through, it inspired me and made me realize this was what I wanted to do, help others fighting the same battle.
October of 2004, I was certified with NSCA and started my fitness career. A year later (Nov 2005), life took me on a 10.5 year journey of living overseas in Bangkok, Thailand and off & on in Jakarta Indonesia where I continued to do Training. Unfortunately, life gave me another blow in a motorcycle accident and I thought that what I loved doing and sharing was over. Instead of giving up, with motivation from a wonderful mentor, I re-certified under ACE not only as a Trainer but as a Health Coach. This life event proved to me that we can overcome a lot more than we think, and set another goal for me; to become an Orthopedic Trainer, which I am currently working towards. I am an “open book” about my fitness journey, weight loss and my road to recovery after my accident.
Training is not only my career, but it a passion for me. I love helping my clients on their journey to a better lifestyle. Nothing more can be rewarding than giving a person back self-esteem, better overall health, and joy when they achieve something they did not think was reachable.
Never say Never.
I live by a Motto: 3 D’s to success: Desire, Determination & Dedication.
COURTNEY | Lead Washington Trainer
I have been working in the health care field for over 10 years. In high school I was a lifeguard and worked as a student athletic trainer for various sports teams. I first became a personal trainer in college in 2011 through ACE (American Council on Exercise).
In 2012 I graduated from Western Washington University with a Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology and continued to work as a private personal trainer. I interned and worked under both Physical Therapists and Athletic trainers throughout my college years and after.
I have a passion for helping people attain their fitness goals and truly enjoy watching them become healthier and happier in their daily lives.
Hello my name is Cat! At a young age my mother started me in a variety of sports ranging from dance to martial arts to basketball.
This introduced me to the love of an active lifestyle, a passion for life, and being an athlete.
As I continued to grow I went on to play collegiate soccer while earning a Bachelor’s from Eastern Washington University where I majored in Recreation Management.
After graduating, my love of fitness led me to pursue earning my Personal Training certificate through the American Council on Exercise (ACE). My most current passions are ½ Ironman’s, soccer, hiking, bodybuilding, and food prepping.
I love how personal trainers are able to motivate individuals to be the best versions of themselves they can be!
My philosophy is no regrets, and to have no regrets you must pursue your passions ... always!
Growing up on a military base in Germany, I developed a love for travelling, history and nature. I have always been fascinated by medicine and anatomy but I didn't have any interest in fitness until I was 16.
I was intimidated by the gym so I did Pilates at home for about a year until I built up my confidence. During this time, I desired community and found support on Instagram.
I was so inspired by all the people I found there and loved inspiring other people as well. My experience on Instagram made me realize that I have a passion for helping others achieve their fitness goals and that I wanted to be a bodybuilder!
I started going to the gym and lifting heavy. Within a few months, I gained enough muscle that I was no longer underweight for the first time since my childhood.
One day, an old friend of mine started asking me for fitness advice and something clicked in my head. It was then that I decided I wanted to be a personal trainer. The knowledge I've gained since being certified through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) has helped my personal fitness tremendously and I'm so excited to begin sharing it with others!
I am a 20-year veteran of the United States Army and spent another 15 years in the oil field. Through all that I have always been passionate about fitness. Now that I am no longer in that environment I have embarked on a new career doing what I love to do and that is working with people of all ages to achieve your fitness goals. I received a Personal Fitness Trainer from ISSA and have a Senior Fitness Specialty certificate from them as well.
I have always been active and played baseball in college on a scholarship. When that ended, I found myself with nothing to keep me motivated and I went down a few treacherous roads. I found out that it doesn’t take long to spiral out of control. I have been 50 lbs overweight twice and had health issues associated with my lifestyle. (I can show you the scars.) Instead of continuing down the path I was heading, I turned it around and become as passionate about fitness as I was about trying more hazardous means of self-satisfaction. Even at my “advanced age” I am finding I have plenty of room for improvement and willing to work to see results. Age is not an excuse for me and shouldn’t be for you!
My experience in training has shown me that I need to tailor the training to the individual. I will take the goals you have set for yourself and we’ve talked about and build a program around that. I have worked with beginners who just want to lose weight, lower cholesterol, or get off diabetes medication. I’ve also worked with seniors who are not willing to sit on the sidelines and let life go on around them. I will dedicate my efforts to ensure you have the proper training to improve your fitness level. Regardless of your age or physical fitness level, I am here to tell you that you are never too old or too out of shape to improve.
Hi my name is Cheyanne! I'm a recent graduate from the University of Texas at San Antonio. I received my Bachelors in Kinesiology with a concentration in exercise science.
I'm a very outgoing, goofy person that enjoys having a good time. I love running and being outdoors. Staying active just runs in my blood and I also tend to have lots of energy.
My fitness journey began in middle school when I was told I was overweight. I moved to North Carolina with my dad who was a bit of a fitness freak at the time. After spending the summer running a mile a day and changing my eating habits drastically I returned to Texas unrecognizable to my family and friends.
The transformation was amazing and I felt great. Since I have strived to inspire others to experience the same feeling of success and accomplishment that I had. I'm ready when you are so let's get started!

Hello, my name is Robert. I started lifting weights and working out when I was 13 years old and haven't looked back since.
I guess you could say it's my addiction. Over the past 2+ decades I've trained for football, track and field, bodybuilding, and powerlifting. Always with one goal in mind, be the best I can be and improve everyday.
It is that mind set that I bring when training others. So whether you're a high school athlete trying to earn a scholarship, or wanting to lose a few pounds.
I'm confident that together we can set you on the right path!
My name is Tori Ahrens and I am certified through NASM as a personal trainer and fitness nutrition specialist. I have been personal training in many settings for seven years now.
My passion for fitness and nutrition began as a teenager overcoming an eating disorder. Previously solely an obsessive running enthusiast, I got into boxing and weight training/bodybuilding and fell in love. I became addicted to the feeling that hard training gave me—a sense of self confidence and empowerment that I could not find anywhere else. I then began picking up books and articles and researching nutrition and training as much as I could.
My knowledge grew and I sought to share this wonderful feeling of health with others. So, at 18 I took the NASM certification exam and passed on my first try. I started working for a gym and training groups of clients at the park as well as teaching small nutrition “classes” with my friends. A few years later, I began to train in a clinical fitness studio where I worked with a pharmacist and a few doctors doing hormone replacement therapy in conjunction with nutritional therapy and exercise. I have competed in two bodybuilding shows and plan to do more in the future once my school schedule slows down. Currently, I am a Human Nutrition major at the University of Houston.
As a trainer, I prioritize making a workout the most positive part of your day. I believe that even serious business should be FUN! All of my clients have become able to look forward to their training sessions, and even look forward to healthy dietary choices! Sharing this lifestyle is what I love to do, so let me help you get to where you want to be!
I have been an athlete and a lover of fitness all my life. I have had setbacks like most people so I understand the difficulty in losing weight and staying fit!
I have been a personal trainer since 2006 and I have an associates degree in fitness from Lake Washington Technical College. I specialize in injured and de-conditioned clients with my 4 years as a physical therapy aide, as well as anyone who is challenged with weight loss and nutritional problems.
I enjoy teaching fitness on any level and love making it a fun experience for all ages! If your goal is to be fit, lost weight, and have more energy, then I am the trainer for you!
I am a passionate health and wellness coach inspiring individuals to embrace a lifestyle of performance longevity through education and training. I love working with all types of people to help them achieve their goals and desired results as they progress on their health and fitness journey.
I have been an athlete most of my life and was nationally ranked in cycling (road racing) and speed skating. I now enjoy CrossFit, running, hiking, bicycling, golfing, and working on flexibility and mobility.
I strive to continuously learn and grow in the fitness and nutrition industry. True wellness incorporates a holistic lifestyle approach that is essentially a series of choices and habits. These include not only exercise, but also proper nutrition, sleep, hydration, mobility, mindfulness, and stress management.

ISABELLA | Seattle, WA | YOGA
I grew up in Texas and just recently moved to Washington after graduating with my bachelors degree in Psychology. I found Baptiste yoga 5 years ago and have had a daily practice since then. It lights me up to share my passion of yoga with each and every one around me.
Being a yoga student will always be in my life story but when I decided to get my teaching certification, I quickly learned that teaching yoga was a whole new practice in itself and being able to lead someone through this journey has given me a sense of fulfillment that I never want to let go of.
My yoga practice holds me accountable of how I'm showing up in my every day life- where I'm staying in my comfort zone and where I need to let go and just BE. This is what I hope to cultivate in my classes. A safe space to be raw and real with yourself. I'm dedicated to empower every yogi in my classes to be their most authentic self on and off their mats.
KATIE | Houston, TX
Hi everyone! My name is Katie and I am from Ireland. I moved to the beautiful Houston Texas in June 2016.
I hold a Bachelors of arts Degree in teaching which has given me the opportunity to travel all over the world. I spent the last 4 years in the Middle East where I enhanced my passion for health and fitness. I have always played sports; in particular, Gaelic football. After coaching a few football sessions I increasingly became more and more intrigued about how the body moves and how training can have such a strong impact on the body and mind. This made me want to further my knowledge and start questioning different theories on fitness and nutrition. I studied and received my diploma from NPTI Houston and I am currently studying for NASM CPT.
In my free time, I like to spend it with my friends and family. I do a variety of workouts from strength based sessions, endurance running to CrossFit and F45 classes. It is important to keep changing your routines so your body will quickly adapt.
I love surrounding myself with people from all walks of life. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced athlete I am willing to share my experiences and knowledge of exercises and nutrition to help you improve your lifestyle. My goal is to create a program which will push you to achieve your goals and make each session as enjoyable as the next.

Hi there! My name is Amanda and I am an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer with a Bachelor’s in Exercise and Sports Science. I have a background in team sports, running, weight lifting and high intensity interval training (HIIT).
My love of sports came from my dad who would take me out on our weekend’s together to play baseball, basketball, golf and even ride horses. As a child I was incredibly shy, but I loved the idea of being on a team and running around with my friends. I tried swimming at age 7, but was afraid to dive so my mom put me in Jazz and Tap classes. I did that for two years, until I realized my true passion was sports.
As soon as I started middle school I tried out for and played all the sports we had to offer; volleyball, basketball and soccer. Once I got to High School I decided to try some new things. I played softball, golf and ran cross country. In college, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to major in and it was my friends who helped me figure out that I would do really well in something that combined my passion for athletics and helping people. I began working towards my degree in kinesiology and found out how passionate I am about the human body and the way that it moves. Also, I had the opportunity to help a lot of my friends reach their fitness goals and change the way they viewed exercise.
Exercise is not just a way to change the way you look, but the way you feel both mentally and physically. Whether you are just starting your fitness journey or are looking to learn something new, I know that together we can get you to your goals. I look forward to getting to know you and being on this journey with you!

EVGENIA | Seattle, WA
My name is Evgenia McPherson, I’ve been a personal trainer for over 8 years. Every day I feel so fortunate to have a career in a field I am passionate about.
I have always been amazed at what a strong effect an exercise routine can have on the way we feel about ourselves and how a great body can bring out our best features and make people look and feel their best.
I grew up in Ukraina, and moved to USA, Washington state, a few years ago. I enjoy challenging myself and striving for consistent improvements.
Fitness has always played a significant role in my life and helped in showing me the meaning of an achievable path when actions are taken in a disciplinary way that support a desired outcome. It has helped me understand that the things we desire or want to work towards in life are not as far off as our minds project them to be.
I believe fitness, no matter the goal, should enrich your life and not take it over.
My mission is to help as many individuals become the most confident, fit, and self-believing version of themselves by assisting them in becoming stronger and fit.

REBEKAH | The Woodlands, TX
Hi! I'm Rebekah and I'm here to help you reach your goals!
I'm from a small town in Texas called McAllen, where I attended private schools and participated in sports and theater. I moved to Huntsville to pursue and education in forensic chemistry, biology, and criminal justice. Little did I know, that wouldn't be what I end up studying in the future.
I became interested in fitness when I started college but just for my general well being. The more I did it, the more I realized I loved it.
I decided I wanted to help others, too. When I first began going to gyms, I was scared. I didn't know what I was doing! I felt insecure about the gym environment and the people who frequently went because they knew what they were doing. As I kept going and kept getting better, I knew that I wanted to be someone anyone could come to for help. So, I started studying to become a personal trainer. I received my certification and I had never been more ready to train. I want to hear you, understand you, and help you achieve any goal you have in mind.
My name is Amy Jakupovic! I was born in Newfoundland, Canada and raised in British Columbia. I moved to the USA 4 years ago when I met my husband.
My fitness and nutrition journey began 5 years ago, when I just was not happy with my health and wanted to improve the way I felt about myself. I was a super active kid growing up, playing all sports all throughout high school, but after school I kind of fell off the fitness wagon and stopped being active altogether.
After dealing with disordered eating for many years, and recovering, I felt that I should use my passion for exercise and nutrition to do good, and help other people who were like me. Through ISSA I obtained a Master Trainer Certification, which includes the following certifications:
-Certified Fitness Trainer -Certified Fitness Nutrition -Specialist in Youth Fitness -Specialist in Senior Fitness -Specialist in Exercise Therapy -Specialist in Strength and Conditioning
