Since 2001, Analisa has been coaching on how to move safely, efficiently, and with strength. Her students include an array of competitive and recreational athletes, of all ages and abilities. Analisa brings a background that includes strength training practices, Hardstyle Kettlebell Instruction (Strong First Team Leader), Olympic Weightlifting, Functional Range Conditioning (FRCms), Original Strength (OS Pro Instructor), youth program design, Physical Education, Balanced Body Pilates Reformer education, and Vinyasa/Forrest Yoga experience.
She focuses her time and passion in educating her students on healthy, sustainable ways for them to move and learn specific to their lifestyles. Her techniques for motivating and educating her students include realistic goal setting and implementation, tiny habits, and activities to compliment performance objectives. This enables her students to fully engage in their progress, get educated, and empowered.
Her current personal fitness regimen is simple. Practice. Lift. Swing. Get-Up. Push. Pull. Balance. Crawl. Go Inverted. If she can’t do it, she adds it to her regimen and learns how. She’s game for anything active that challenges the body and mind, preferably one that will start with the sun rising and ending with her acquiring new skills and a level of respect for herself, her abilities, and those that participated with her. And regardless of the weather this farm-raised, California born Italian girl is on a surfboard, wake-board, or stand-up paddle board somewhere nearby.
Creating community through movement, education, and healthy habits is at her core; more than a fun bi-product, she believes it is the foundation of what helps create life changing experiences. Analisa has the pleasure of also teaching as a local corporate wellness coach, a regular guest instructor at Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico, and is a Lululemon alumni-Ambassador.
