Growing up I had a passion for sports and movement. Avid participation fueled my decision to study Kinesiology for my Bachelor's degree. I later decided to pursue a Master's degree in Kinesiology as well. Since becoming a personal trainer I have helped many clients reach their fitness goals. Whether this was to gain muscle, lose fat or gain strength, I have been able to help my clients achieve great things! I have helped bodybuilders gain their "pro card" and have also trained national level powerlifters. Helping you hit your goals fuels my passion, no matter what they are!
“My passion for fitness began at the age of 16. I was never into traditional sports however I began training for powerlifting my junior year of high school. I fell in love with the sport and have loved lifting ever since. Over the course of the last 10 years I have competed in multiple powerlifting meets along with bodybuilding competitions and I am going on my third year of being a personal trainer. As lead trainer, I bring the best to my clients, making sure that they always get the best scientific based guidance. I strive to help people ENJOY fitness, learn what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle and not look at fitness as just another “thing” they have to do. Whatever your goals may be, I’m here to help you reach them!”
“I fell in love lifting weights during high school. I started lifting with the football team during the summer in order to increase my strength for track and cheerleading. During college I went into bodybuilding competitions as I no longer was in sports. Unfortunately, I fell into an unhealthy relationship with the gym as well as suffered from an eating disorder. My recovery path was long but helped me develop a healthy relationship with food and the gym. I now work with my clients to develop sustainable lifestyle changes that develop a healthy relationship with the gym and food as well as empower them to be their best self. I use evidence based practices and focus on overall wellness in every client. I graduated from The College of Idaho with a bachelors degree in Human Performance and minors in psychology, human services, and art. I am now pursuing a Masters in Dietetics and getting my dietetic verification statement from the University of Arizona.”
“My name is Juan Gonzalez, born and raised in Idaho. I enjoy weightlifting, football, fishing and spending time with family and friends. My interest in fitness started while I was in high school playing football. That was when I completed for the first time in powerlifting meets and was hooked ever since. After high school I took up martial arts training for several years, competing in local tournaments.
In 2010 I was reunited with a weight room again and have been addicted since. I've recently competed in both powerlifting meets and bodybuilding shows. My strong passion for overall health and fitness has now lead me to becoming a personal trainer. My hope is to help clients reach their personal goals and teach them a lifestyle that is sustainable.”
“I fell in love with training after seeing what it could do for me not only physically but mentally. Training changed everything for me and I’ve seen it do the same for others. I’ve competed in bodybuilding and powerlifting, and I love the process of working toward a goal. I’m passionate about helping people reach their goals and overcome limiting beliefs. Living a healthy lifestyle should be enjoyable and sustainable. I’m passionate about helping people find a balance that works for them.”
“Hi! My name is Danni. I found weight lifting in 2010 when I realized I couldn’t keep up with my young children. I had always been an active person that participated in softball, volleyball, hunting, hiking and just about any other outdoor activity you could think of, but somehow had let myself go. At 200 lbs and 5’4”, I decided it was time to take control again. That is when I found my passion!!
Hi everyone, I’m Madison. I’m 24 years old, born in Maryland and currently live in Boise, Idaho. I’m an ACE certified personal trainer, and I received my B.S. in business management from Oregon State (go beavs) June of 2020. I have competed in two WNBF bikini competitions and taken a first place title in both. Competing in bodybuilding parallels my fitness journey in that they are both ongoing journeys where I can continuously improve and unlock new potential.
I have an unwavering passion for growth in my career, knowledge, and mindset. I began my fitness journey five years ago, and was anything but the picture of health. I was no stranger to body dysmorphia, and I hardly ate in an attempt to stay “skinny.” I immersed myself in the world of fitness and never looked back. I now strive to be strong, healthy, and happy both mentally and physically. I aspire to use my own experience and qualifications to help you achieve your goals.
My passion for exercise began during my first experience weightlifting at a gym in high school – the gym was my first taste of feeling confident and empowered as a young adult. I started training with Oren in 2016 as a competitive powerlifter and I have competed in eleven powerlifting meets, two of them at a National level in 2018 and 2019. It was at this point, I was truly inspired to work in the health and fitness field.
I graduated from Boise State University in 2020 with my B.S. in Kinesiology but it's my expertise in powerlifting that has really allowed me to experience the excitement that comes from strengthening oneself through weight training – I hope to pass that same feeling along to all of my clients.
I believe that exercise doesn’t have to be a daunting task and I pride myself on making training sessions fun; yet challenging, educational, and most importantly effective!
Since I was young, I’ve always had a passion for sports and movement. I participated in any physical activity I could and always loved moving! During high school I really got in to weight training and loved how it made me feel and how it increased my performance during sports. My peers began to ask me lifting advice and as I began to help them achieve their goals, it sparked a passion for helping others. I love to see someone achieve a fitness goal that they previously believed to be impossible. Helping someone become a better person physically and mentally is what I love!
