Philosophy

I try to educate clients that regular exercise, both cardio vascular and strength training, along with good nutrition and proper rest, can lead to a happier, healthier life style.

Noelle Ritter ATC, CSCS, MES

Philosophy

I aim to bridge the gap between rehabilitation and fitness. I love pointing people toward becoming independent, pain free and functional according to their specific goals, whether that’s running a local race or climbing stairs after surgery. My training sessions are learning experiences. I expect my clients to ask questions about the program we build together in order to learn how to take control of their health independently.

Client Base

While my back ground is in injury rehab and Athletic Training, I enjoy working with an elderly population just as much as I do the athletic population. No matter what age we are, we can always be thinking about prevention and the next step toward health and function. My certifications and experience allow me to work with special populations and disease management (orthopedic and neurological). I am also trained in program building for strength and agility. I am a teacher by nature and enjoy educating my client about their bodies.

Heather Crivellone – Personal Trainer and Aquatic Instructor

Philosophy

I believe that “healthy” is not a number on a scale, or a number on your jeans. It’s not a “strict diet” of no carbs, no fat, no fun, but it is a balance of moderation. “Healthy” is also trying new things that challenge both your body and mind, while having a positive attitude and outlook on life. As a trainer, my goal is to help my clients find a balance in their own lives to incorporate fitness and fun (because fitness CAN be fun!) My job as a trainer is to keep my clients accountable. I take pride in watching my clients hit their goals, whether that is increasing their cardio endurance to run their first 5K, gaining strength in areas they didn’t think were possible, fitting into those “skinny” jeans post pregnancy, or just sticking to a routine that they have never done before. All are goals, big or small, and I take pride in helping everyone hit those milestones!

Client Base

I have a passion for coaching any person who is willing to improve their lifestyle and who wants to celebrate the gains they have accomplished.

Experience & Credentials

  • Bachelors of Science- Kinesiology with an emphasis in Fitness, Nutrition and Health; San Diego State University
  • Certified Personal Trainer through National Academy of Sports Medicine
  • PiYo Certified through Beachbody Experience

“Fit is not a destination, it’s a way of life.”

Kori Poleé – Personal Trainer and Aquatic Instructor

Philosophy

Kori believes that there is always room for learning; no matter what level you are at, you can always make goals for yourself and continue to improve. Without goals, you will either remain stagnant or regress. Kori believes that consistency and commitment are key in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, which includes biological and psychological health and social and spiritual well-being. She pushes her clients to train their bodies from a “wholeness” perspective. It is important for your body, mind, and spirit to be as well as it can be. Kori will continuously evaluate and prescribe the proper exercises and nutrition, as well as mind exercises, in order to continue to strive for the best.

Client Base

Kori enjoys working with a variety of clients. She has experience working with weight-loss clients, elderly, injury recovery, strength-gain clients, and athletes.

Devin Murphy – Personal Trainer

Philosophy

As a personal trainer, I aim to motivate my clients to build a healthy lifestyle and continue that lifestyle for many years. Training isn’t all about the way you look physically. More importantly, it is about the way it makes you feel participating in day-to-day activities. I pride myself in fun, enjoyable, yet challenging workouts tailored to each person and his or her specific needs. No two individuals are the same, just like no two programs are the same. I treat each training session not only as a workout, but also as a time to educate clients about why and how each exercise is beneficial. I believe that a specific exercise program, coupled with a well-balanced diet, is capable of accomplishing any goal you may have.

Client Base

I’ve worked with clients with goals including general weight loss, general strength, injury prevention and injury recovery, as well as sport-specific athletes. I take pride in having fun and building a relationship in the weight room while working towards your goals.

Ryan Blehm, CSCS, CES – Personal Trainer

Client Base

Ellen Perjanik, RYT – Yoga Instructor

Philosophy

My philosophy is to spread the word of yoga to as many people as possible. I am a firm believer that yoga is for everyone. Whether you practice on a mat or in a chair, you can practice yoga. Yoga has not only changed my life, but also that of many others. It will bring your mind, body and breath together. It is a practice that will continue throughout your life. Everyone has different levels of strength and flexibility, but it can always improve. We all need to commit to our practice to see and feel the changes that yoga can bring to us.

Client Base

Mat yoga is for anyone who is able to get down on the ground and back up again. Even people with injuries and limitations are able to practice with modifications. Chair yoga is for those who are in need of more of a stable practice. Again, there will be modifications for people in chair yoga.
