Be Better, Get Better, Get Stronger

"Fitness is what gives my day meaning. I have been an athlete all my life, and prioritized sports over everything. However, it wasn't until five years ago that I realized it's time to make it my career.  I succeed when I have inspired others to be better, to get better, and to get stronger. I hope to always be able to make a positive change in people's lives." - Natasha

I Am Davey Fisher

"My interest in human performance and exercise science fueled my course of study in Kinesiology. After a couple years in corporate wellness in Seattle Washington, a rare coaching opportunity to work with pro athletes presented itself in LA. I took it, and haven't looked back. My training background and philosophy center around a performance-driven mindset. Functional fitness is my mantra. The ultimate goal: move better, stronger, for longer. The human body is meant to perform, so you might as well find out what it's capable of!" - Davey 

Trial and Error

"There are so many lessons I have learned through trial and error. It's important knowing and learning about your body as it changes over time. Through trial and error you can better understand yourself and your body to become the best version of yourself. Live it and do it to believe it!" - Maria

 

 

It's Possible

"Your dreams are possible and you have the potential right now to make a difference. I chose boxing as my main frontier because it is my dream to be a fighter. I am late to the sport, but I intend to be the best Julian Devine there is. Each person can be the best version of themselves. If there is anything I'd ask of myself, it's to live each and everyday as if it were my last." - Julian 

R.E.S.P.E.C.T

"Fitness has been a part of my life since I can remember. However, in the beginning it was sports not specifically fitness. I played basketball and ran track at the University of Michigan before I moved to NYC to become a fitness model. My most important goal is to inspire others to respect their bodies and encourage them to lead healthy lifestyles." - Lauren

More Than Just Weights

"It's more than just picking up weights and lifting them. The gym frees my mind of stress and confusion. It takes dedication and getting to know your body, what works and what doesn't work. You will need to make sacrifices to see the improvement you are hoping to achieve. All in all work hard, stay focused, and the sky is the limit." - Dominic

Move, Sweat, & Breathe

"The number one thing successful people practice is consistency. Practice it. Preach it. Love it! The routine you work on each day will develop the healthy habits to power you through the most fulfilling life you will have. Move, sweat and breathe -- it's the most rewarding thing you can do to celebrate your body." - Chris 

 

Plan Ahead

"Fitness helps me destress in such a hectic city like NYC. My goals are to become a strong swimmer and to have better discipline overall with my fitness routine. I definitely struggle planning ahead with my meals, but I'm realizing that planning ahead is key for success." - Joeni 

Pleasantly Surprised

"I started my fitness journey about 5 years ago. I had a vision of how I wanted my body to look and feel. I took it upon myself to train hard and stay consistent with my workouts because I knew that in order to achieve my goals I would have to put in the work. Just within the past year, I've completely changed my diet. Eating extremely clean for a majority of the week with a few cheats meals to keep me sane. I immediately saw changes which gave me motivation to continue. This past week I signed my contract with the fitness department at Wilhelmina Models. Have this be a reminder for anyone struggling or anyone who has a goal that seems unobtainable. Push for what you want and work for it everyday and you'll be pleasantly surprised in the direction your path goes." - Dana

Own Your Lane

"I've been running track for almost 10 years now, and I honestly couldn't imagine my life without it. When you're on the track, it's just you vs. yourself. Doesn't matter who's next to you. The only person you can worry about is the one in your lane." - Jared 

Playing Outside

"Growing up playing in the woods and competing as a gymnast, I have always been curious and driven to accomplish new skills. When the gym closed in my hometown, I still craved the movement of gymnastics, the feats of strength/balance, and, chalk. So, I transitioned into rock climbing and volleyball, both of which brought me to national level competitions that first year. As for life off the rocks, my time on the court switched to competing in sand volleyball, trail running, and chasing after surf. I live for athletic movement. The process of pushing myself both in training and playing outside leaves me exhausted and full of joy every time." - Lisa

What Doesn't Kill Me Makes Me Stronger

"While playing soccer in college, I separated my shoulder, tore my mcl, and rolled my ankles more times than I can count. It felt like every training session/game I was always injured. Physically and mentally these injuries caused many setbacks within my career and there were times when I felt defeated. It would have been easy for me to quit, but instead I worked harder and pushed through it. Each day I applaud myself for not giving up because I know it has made me stronger today." - Hayden

Humanness

"Having been a pro athlete in Rugby most of my adult life - I was in great shape. Once retirement came and I left my beloved South Africa to live in the UK and Eastern Europe, I stopped training. I gained over 20 kgs in the period between 2013-2015. At the end of 2015 my drive to transform was triggered by going through my old pictures. From that day on I vowed to help those who also want to improve the quality of their lives through fitness." - Ntando 

Her & Him

"My boyfriend started the fire within me to become a stronger person - both mentally & physically. I decided to become a certified personal trainer so that I could inspire others in the way he had inspired me. We got certified together and started changing the lives of many individuals. Our passion to help others made training and coaching easy. Fitness is a journey that develops strong character and beauty beyond what the eyes can see. I hope to continue pushing others through my training and growing as a person myself." - Kerri

Defeat Yourself

"I needed to find a way to love myself again physically & mentally. When I reached my weight loss goal, I created a new goal, and then a new goal came along after. That's what keeps me going - my goals. I'm my competition, and if I can defeat myself, then I can do anything I set my mind to." - May 

Sharing Is Caring

"I am an LA-based personal trainer and professional dancer. My fitness journey started fairly late. While in college, my instructors recommended strength training to supplement my dance training. After a short period, I noticed quite a significant difference in my balance, endurance, and core strength. This inspired me to share the benefits of strength training with others." - Chelsea
