Aline Estrada – Personal Trainer
Personal Trainer in Long Beach – I began my advocacy for metabolic health and self-care through my own challenges growing up in pointe shoes as an athlete with Type-1 Diabetes. Fitness, specifically resistance training, gave me direction and life skills to better manage the physical and emotional battles with my immune disease. This built a passion in me to help improve the mental and physical health of others going through similar experiences.I have worked with many clients who have once felt frustrated, overwhelmed, and helpless. I love working with beginners and those who have failed in the past because I come from the same place! My journey over the last 15 years has lead me from working with talent on the music videos of Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, 21 Savage, J Balvin and Rosalia – to involving myself in scientific conferences, and studying how to bridge the gap between lifestyle challenges and wellness. I am a certified National Academy of Sports medicine trainer, injury prevention, strength and mobility coach, and consider myself a leader in precision, functional, and personalized training protocols that are not only effective and safe, but also validated in laboratory-settings and real-life clients and athletes.

Amy Annala – Online Health & Fitness Coach
Personal Trainer in Long Beach – I’ve been in the mental health field for over a decade, knowing that what I wanted out of life was, “to help people”. So, I’ve landed myself focusing on the psychology of behavior and implementing change to help others alter the trajectory of their lives for the better. Alternatively, fitness became a sort of personal passion project as I fell deeper into prioritizing my health and wanting to build the best, strongest version of me. Growing up, I was never athletic and considered myself “big boned” knowing no alternative. Unfortunately without education, experience, or guidance, I fell into some pretty disordered thought patterns and habits that initially got me to drop 50 pounds quickly. That was the easy part; the true challenge has come from unlearning bad habits imposed on me by myself and toxic diet culture and creating sustainable results.
By combining theories and concepts from my background in psychotherapy with my knowledge, passion, and personal experience in fitness, I help guide clients into being the best versions of themselves; I can be who I needed when I was so lost and stuck in cycles of self-sabotage and yo-yo dieting. I want to teach clients that you should never feel restricted or at war with your body.
I believe that practice makes better, and with time, consistency, patience, some tough love and self-love, you can achieve anything.

Sergio Maurico Vargas – Personal Trainer
My name is Sergio Mauricio and I am a personal trainer and business owner. I have been in the fitness world for 10 years now. My fitness journey began when I was 23 years old and weighted 264lbs . For my age and height , that is considered obesity and borderline diabetic . You ask me how I got to this point in my life? My answer is , I did not care . I did not care that I was overweight and I did not care what people thought of me . I suffered from mild depression and I just ate my feelings away as most of us can relate . Originally my plan was to become an EMT . I went to school for it and fell in love with helping people . Yet that was not my calling . After finishing my course , I came home only to gain more weight and feel more bad about myself because of it and instead of doing something beneficial I just kept eating . Wasn’t until I started feeling the effects of my weight that it became my wake up call . I was suffering from shortness of breath, chest pain and low to none confidence level . I decided to take a step forward and began going to the YMCA . Everyday I would walk 5 miles to the gym only to use the treadmill because I had no knowledge of weight training . Soon after, I began to lose weight and started to feel good about myself . Later I was introduced to an LA Boxing gym by a trainer whom I will always be grateful for taking the time to show me the ropes into weight training. At that facility is where my passion for personal training began. I went from being a member to truly embracing the calling of helping others as I was helped . Now 10 years later and 100 lbs less , I am proud to call myself a Personal trainer and business owner . There is unlimited potential in this field and the most rewarding thing about it all is that I get to change lives for the better . I specialize in martial arts such as boxing , kickboxing and Muay Thai. Also , muscle building , fat loss and athletic conditioning . A strong champion mindset is how I live my life and my mission is to help everyone around me and those who I have yet to meet to become the best version of themselves !
