My personal fitness journey started like most, I wasn’t happy with my current health and wanted a change. This initial interest in health and fitness propelled me into getting a degree in Exercise Science. After realizing how much fitness changed my life I wanted to take all the information I have obtained through formal education, personal experience, trial and error, and self-education to help others reach their goals.

I have a B.S in Exercise Science from UTA and my NSCA-CPT.

My training style is mostly free weights with a few machines added in as needed. Let me help you achieve your health and fitness goals through proven scientific methods!

My general availability is: Wednesday-Friday 6am-12pm & 3pm-7pm; Saturday & Sunday 12pm-7pm

My passion lies in teaching the importance of exercise and nutrition extend longevity, overcome illness, and lessen the side effects of medications. I began my career in a hospital-based wellness center working with persons living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic diseases, taking up where doctors left off to help those patients regain a normal sense of well-being in spite of their disease. The knowledge I gained from more than two decades as a trainer/nutritionist and over forty years of personal bodybuilding proved invaluable when my own life partner was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Through the arduous journey of chemotherapy and surgery, nutrition and exercise played a major role in helping win her battle against cancer. I’ve coached many people with a plethora of excuses to overcome personal and medical adversity and achieve their goal of not only a healthy lifestyle, but to also gain a stronger, healthier body.

My goal is to inspire others and give them the tools they need to reach the greatest quality of life for as long as possible through a combination of strength, endurance, and flexibility and by teaching them the importance of eating a clean, balanced diet. My training style is best described as a “fundamentalist” approach toward training. I break the body into nine individual muscle groups and believe in targeting each group specifically. Whether the goal is weight loss, toning, endurance, or all out muscle building I believe that specifically targeting each of these areas on a weekly basis yields the greatest return for the least amount of work.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Geoinformatics with a minor in Biology along with credentials and certifications from ACE (Personal Training), DSW Fitness (Kinetic Anatomy, Winning Sports Nutrition, Balance Training, and Dumbbell Training), AMFPT (Personal Training & Sports Nutrition). My personal interests include martial arts, technology and music. I perform and teach jazz piano, jazz guitar, music theory, and music production.

My general availability is: Monday – Friday 10am-4pm; other times may be arranged upon request

My name is Lance Luna and I am a junior at UTA. I am a certified personal trainer through The Cooper Institute. Through high school and my college years, I have also taken weightlifting and other kinesiology classes.

Physical activity has been a large part of my life since I was able to first play sports in 1st grade. I played sports up until high school. Unfortunately I had an injury that kept me from playing. But I didn’t let that end my physical activity. Once I got to high school, I changed paths and focused on what I could do, which was staying healthy and in shape.

Working out has become a critical part of my life. It is one of the most rewarding things someone can do in their life because it gives you a sense of confidence and control in your life. When you feel good about yourself, you become more productive and happier with life, in general. My goal is to share this experience with as many people as possible. A healthy lifestyle is something I hope everyone can discover and I want to do my part in making that happen. I will do everything I can to help my clients reach their full potential.

My general availability is: M-F,  1pm-8pm and Saturdays, 1pm-5pm.

My name is Lexius Anderson and I am a junior civil engineering major at UTA. I have both a NASM-CPT and TRX Group Training certification.

My love and passion for fitness started at a very young age with basketball. I played basketball from the 3rd grade until the end of high school. Once high school ended I had to step away from basketball to pursue my education in engineering. Needless to say, in order to feel the void of not being on the court I took to the weight room and it became a new hobby for me. I loved the sweat, the pain, and the grind of going hard in the gym. However, it wasn’t until my mom was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that I started to think about fitness as something that I could not only improve for myself but for others as well. After training my mom and watching her regain more of her quality of life back I decided that I wanted to be a trainer and help more people achieve their fitness goals. One of the most important things that I have learned so far as a trainer is that fitness is not just about the physical aspect. Fitness is a way of life, its mental toughness. It’s feeling good on the inside and out. My goal as a trainer is not just to help my clients reach their physical goals but to give them tools that can be applied to any area of their life. My training style varies depending on the needs of the individual, and it is my goal to make all of my sessions a unique experience for each of my clients.

My life Philosophy is to seize each and every moment because each new moment is another opportunity to be better than you were before. This philosophy also translates for when I train because it’s my goal to help my clients reach their goals. Also, it means the world to me to be a part of my client's growth in becoming better versions of themselves.
