My Personal Training and Group Fitness philosophy is based on positive energy, intensity and having fun. I help my clients and class participants incorporate health and fitness into their individual lives, and teach them how to exercise correctly to build self-confidence in and out of the gym. As a former recreational and competitive bodybuilder I always based my own training regimen only on building muscle and burning fat, never truly focusing on the power of functional movements and mobility. In 2012 I was introduced to Hard-Style Kettlebell training and CrossFit and my love of fitness was reinvigorated. I learned quickly that true fitness is not what you see in the mirror, but mentally and physically feeling your best as a result of the effort you put in, everyday. I dedicate my coaching to help others achieve the same, everyday!

There is a saying, which states “every Trainer’s first client is themselves”. As a child and young adult I battled with fluctuating weight and low self-esteem. I didn’t like who I was so I decided to make a change. I believe anyone can change to become the best version of themselves, which usually starts with one’s health and then manifests throughout all other aspects of their life. We all have goals that are personal and unique to our situation in life, and my job as a trainer/coach is to help my clients take the most effective path towards meeting those goals while maintaining a safe and fun environment. I get to watch people from so many different walks of life change inside and out as a result of their hard work. The greatest joy I get from my career is witnessing that transformation in my clients.

Precision Nutrition – L-1 Coach
CrossFit L-1 Trainer

Like so many of us, I started exercising to lose weight. But I didn’t become consistent and committed to strength training until 2006, when I spent a year recovering from a horse riding accident. Through the process of rebuilding my core strength and healing my low back, I discovered the positive impact that building our physical strength can have on our mind, body and spirit. Since then, I’ve been dedicated to helping my clients build and improve their fitness through focused core work, individualized strength training programs, and cardiovascular conditioning. When I work with my clients, I push, support, guide, and encourage them so they can move, feel and look their best.

Roxane Harpster

NASM – Certified Personal Trainer

I have a diverse background in athletics which includes cycling, martial arts, running, group-fitness classes, weight training and most recently, surfing. Like so many people, life threw me a few curve balls in my 40s that had a negative impact on my health-weight gain, loss of fitness, and hypertension.  After several months of failed attempts to stick with an exercise program, I began working with a personal trainer.  My success was the direct result of the safe and effective exercise program designed for me, that was made up of a variety of progressively challenging and fun workouts.  He also gave me the motivation and accountability that I needed to continue to show up 100% for myself every single day. “You are worth this investment” still rings in my head.  That partnership lasted over 3.5 years and was the catalyst that inspired me to become a personal trainer.  My goal is to help others in their journey towards optimal health and fitness.

Matt Massot

NASM – Certified Personal Trainer

Sports have always been a part of my life but I became passionate about fitness in 2014 after losing 75lbs. I had been overweight and sedentary and found the key to my success was routine. A routine of living an active lifestyle and committing to a healthy diet that lead to a decrease in stress, improved sleep and just feeling better overall. With my own experience I understand and empathize with anyone who struggles with their weight. It’s hard to lose weight and I became a personal trainer to help people reach their own fitness goals and have fun along the way.  Exercise doesn’t have to be painful and I enjoy helping my clients find methods that work best for them. I specialize in functional strength and conditioning with a focus on functional movement patters. In my spare time I like to watch movies, play basketball, and be outside with my dog Harr.

I love hiking, houseplants and animals! I found fitness at a young age with sports and was introduced to strength training in high school and have not stopped since. I started CrossFit after college and it’s given me the courage and excitement of trying (and succeeding!) seemingly daunting tasks beyond what I thought was possible. My goal as a personal trainer is to help people find freedom in movement; to feel comfortable, confident and powerful with their body’s capabilities.

Axa Picking

ISSA – Certified Personal Trainer

My fitness journey started as an underweight high schooler. I played basketball, football, and threw shot-put/discus. Through team weight training and working with a personal trainer I learned to love resistance training and it’s mental health benefits. At this point in time, exercise is now an integral part of my routine and something I look forward to every day. My style draws from elements of functional training, bodybuilding and powerlifting. One of my favorite aspects of fitness is how much you learn about your own body and it’s capabilities, as well as reinforcing the importance of consistency and patience.

 

Annika Jackson

NASM – CPT

My fitness journey started junior year of high school. I stuck to only cardio and bodyweight exercises due to my intense self-consciousness and fear of the gym. From there I went down a rocky slope of overexercising and under-eating. Aerial fitness and yoga helped heal my relationship with my body. Through these arts, I discovered that my body is capable of beauty and strength. From there I decided to brave the gym so I could improve my performance through weightlifting. Very quickly I became hooked on not just the physical achievement but the mental relief I experienced from weightlifting. I wish I hadn’t let my fear of judgement or lack of knowledge keep me from something so enjoyable and up-lifting. 

As a personal trainer, I help my clients realize the inherent strength they possess and all of the incredible things their body can achieve. Together we’ll make you confident and capable by arming you with knowledge so you never feel lost or feel like you’re “doing it wrong”. 
 
I see fitness as a lifelong pursuit that’s constantly evolving and leading to new exciting breakthroughs and discoveries. I look forward to cheering you on and helping you with your own fitness journey!
