Shelly Fitzsimmons

Certified Personal Trainer, Lifestyle, Wellness and Nutrition Coach

I dedicate my life as a health advocate and in the pursuit of enriching the quality of peoples lives through lifestyle, wellness and nutrition coaching. I create a positive and uplifting training environment wherein each client is empowered to take charge of his or her own health and well-being by bridging the gap between awareness, choice and action. I offer my services to broaden the joys and benefits of a healthy lifestyle that can translate to a more fulfilled and active life.

Christopher Green

Certified Personal Fitness Trainer

My background originates from sports medicine and I earned a certificate as a Physical Therapy Assistant from Santa Rosa Junior College. I later studied exercise therapy within the principals of “Super Slow” and the NASM, and became certified as an exercise specialist through the ACSM. Much of my free time is spent riding one of my many different bikes (both on road and off), resistance training, participating in a variety of cycling charity events, doing volunteer work for the Best Buddies organization, and continuing to educate myself on the horizons of science with an emphasis on nutrition and medicine.

Patrick Burden

Certified Personal Trainer
“Connecting the mind and body”

I am passionate about health and fitness and helping others. I am fortunate to have been born and raised in Sonoma County. I love the outdoors including hiking, trail running and mountain biking. Coaching and training have always been something I have been drawn to, whether it’s athletics or helping someone maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. I focus on balance, core strength and flexibility, while helping people reach their personal fitness goals.

Ivan Mendoza

Certified Personal Trainer
(510) 798-8855

Training has been the most rewarding career. I am glad I’ve been able to grow with all my clients. I thank them for all of their achievements. My training philosophy: the key to training is not the quantity, but the quality of doses you get with each repetition. Preventing injury is one of my highest priorities. I am committed to building the software to a better body for my clients.

Carrie Lukacic

Certified Personal Trainer

My journey to becoming a fitness professional started with my own recurring injuries that kept me from achieving my personal fitness goals. Recurring injuries kept me from road and trail running, hiking, and even gardening. After years of struggling to remain injury-free and healthy, I started working with a personal trainer to resolve muscles imbalances, improve functional movements, and return to the activities I love. My experience motivated me to become a certified personal trainer to help others with similar challenges and with those who simply want to keep active and healthy. My personal philosophy is move right first, which means identifying and correcting existing movement patterns that could result in injury. I have the ability to identify dysfunctional movement patterns and properly guide clients through proper balance, weight, and strength training techniques. I understand every client is unique and so are their needs, which is why I plan each training session around individual client’s specific needs. Together we can work on meeting fitness goals and getting results.
