ALPHA VENICE TRAINERS
The concept for ALPHA SPORT LA was born to give that one on one personal training attention to younger girls that needed guidance, that needed to find their inner ALPHA. This is not a WOMENS ONLY KINDA CLUB, though sponsored by NIKE WOMENS TRAINING. Alpha Venice is meant to be that special place in the community were people can go to ask questions, share common interest AND to get their asses kicked. That is why our price point is low considering the caliber of trainers we have on staff. Our classes are affordable yet high quality with a lot of personal attention.
It doesn't matter your size or shape...not looking at another person saying "I want to look like her". Loving yourself for what you were given, your strength and your inner power. It is about health, mentally & physically but most of all knowing what is important to you. Finding your purpose. I wanted this studio to be the place where people come to feel empowered.

The most important thing to have is a love for your work. I am so blessed to be doing what I am passionate about each and every day.
Being able to help people, educate people and connect on a different level gives me a high that I cannot explain.
My edge comes from growing up as a competitive dancer. Using my body as a tool for all of those years helped me to develop that mind body connect. Acquiring that at such a young age has allowed me to understand of how the body works both inside and out. These days it's second nature!
I take my credentials and add a personal spin. My own little KICK. Some of my training techniques incorporate TRX suspension training, Whole Body Vibration training, core stabilization and of course, functional movement.
My nutritional background is the final piece to the puzzle. Understanding how the body works plays a huge role in weight loss, weight gain & optimum health.
