Latasha

Personal Trainer & Occupational Therapist

I am currently certified through ACE, NASM and I am a Corrective Exercise Specialist. I focus on functional training, total body workouts with a mix of cardio. As a person who used to be over 200 lbs, I learned that helping someone lose fat and keep it off its simply not enough when a client has chronic joint or muscle pain accompanied by dysfunctional movement patterns. Weight loss journey has a lot of components to it: strength and cardio training, corrective exercises, nutrition guidance and a shift in mentality. 

I am looking forward to help you with any of your fitness goals in the most supportive way possible!

Personal Trainer

About Andreina: Born & Raised in NYC, my passion for athletics was recognized at the tender age of 7. New York City has been the root of my training, including track& field, dance & bikini bodybuilding.

Current certifications: Pre/Post Natal, Functional Training, Fascia Networks, Youth Fitness, Bodybuilding & Stability/Mobility.

Training Thoughts: “My belief is that a healthy lifestyle begins with adopting a new way of thinking. Much of what gets accomplished in life begins with a thought; Health & Wellness begins just the same. That thought leads us to feel we need change and in turn, we take action. Whether you are a new mother dealing with the rollercoaster of a new life or someone involved in a demanding corporate setting, your mental health is the driver behind it all.Training is the action that leads us down a healthier path”.
 
Training Philosophy: The goal is to create a comfortable environment for you to unwind from the daily stressors of life, instill discipline & ultimately, discover new strengths within.
 
My motto: “Think new. Feel new. Live new.”
