Noemi Berta

Fitness Coach

Noemi is a NASM, TRX Certified Personal Trainer and CPR/AED Certified from the American Heart Association. She sees herself as an educator, mentor, coach, and cheerleader on her client's journey towards sustainable health.

One-on-One Personal Training gives her the opportunity to work with people on addressing specific needs and teach her clients about their bodies to create a mind and body awareness.

Noemi's biggest Fitness Challenge:

"My biggest challenge is to make my body move like a child's body does. Restore full range of motions of all joints. Surely you have seen a baby falling and getting up with no problem! They roll over on their neck and don't have to go to see a chiropractor the next day! I want to be able to age well! The challenge is to fight against the sedentary lifestyle of this comfortable modern civilization."

According to Noemi, this is her clients biggest problem:

Realizing that their body wants to move. That being sedentary and immobile is actually the opposite what the body wants. She achieves this breakthrough with her clients through education, support, and repetition. It is important not to put limitations on your body because, eventually, it will limit your everyday life!

Ariana Canalez

Fitness Coach

NASM has provided her with an intense perspective on biomechanics and human physiology and how this relates to program design.
Additionally, she is a USA Swimming Certified Coach and a Level 2 Member of the American Swim Coaches Association. She sees herself as the igniter to get her clients to feel stronger, move better and more fluid in order to unlock their body's full potential.

Ariana's biggest Fitness Challenge:

"Last April, I started working with a powerlifting coach to clean up my lifting technique and my programming. It has been a process, and it's hard work, but I feel stronger for it and more prepared to reach my competition goals. "

According to Ariana, this is her clients biggest problem:

"The biggest change that I feel people have a hard time with is adjusting their mindset. I think that some people come in with a lot of expectations, and have a hard time letting go of those expectations and trusting the process. Learning and making a lifestyle change takes time. If you stick to those healthy changes and give yourself time to adjust, and focus on performance based goals in the gym, those tangible results will be incidental to the other changes you have made."
